1-30-11 Trip
« on: January 30, 2011, 04:07:26 PM »
Took out clients Zac, Danielle, and Dan on Winni today. The bite was slow and we had to work for the ones they got. After spending considerable time drilling holes and scouting for fish I finally found them in the weeds in about 25 FOW. The morning bite came on tip ups with smelt. The afternoon bite was on the jig rod with spikes.

The slop was tolerable. Thanks in part to all of the snowmobile traffic we had firm snow to walk on. The sun came out briefly and the temperature rose a bit making a few soft spots. All-in-all not too bad though.

Couldn't have done it without my assistant/sidekick/fiance who happily baited hooks, skimmed holes, took photos, and fed me ham sandwiches while I scout fished. All for free, lol.

Danielle with the first fish of the day. A real bruiser!


Dan with a 13 1/2" yellow perch.


Zac with one for the frying pan.


"You're about to catch that one right there."

Thanks Spike.

We didn't get the numbers I had hoped for. It was frustrating. We were in good company though so we had fun.

Let me know when you want to hit up Kingston, it needs to be thinned out of some crappie and white perch, lol. I talked to a local there today who said that he doesn't eat the crappie there cause they taste like mud. He did say he eats the whites and yellows and they are delicious. ??? you would have thought if one tasted like mud they all would. Then again I'm not a pan fish taste expert, so who knows.

Thursdays don't work for me. I'm in for weekends only right now. With this snow who knows we may all be out, lol. It's a long walk to the good zone from the boat ramp, but you can get there thru the state park a little easier. Still a good walk though.
