2-21-11 Charter Report (pic added)

Took out John, his son Sam, and their friend Brian for some crappie fishing. Another wonderfully windy day. The bite was tough! A few on tip-ups early. They just didn't seem to want to bite. We tried everything! Genz worms, fat boys, hali jigs, swedish pimples, red glowing, green glowing, reflective, you name it. Had to beg the fish to bite. We were fishing mostly in 15fow and the fish were suspended at around 10fow. We marked fish consistently all day but they just would not bite much. Finally the sun came out and we were able to start picking them up on pimples and gold genz worms. Anything shiny really but mostly pimples. Still really had to work for them and constantly move around.

They ended up with around 2 dozen fish and kept 17. Sam landed a nice 13 1/2" on a light jig rod. He struggled with his hook sets so this was a welcome reward for all his efforts.

I am pooped! Having a blast though!

Next trip is Thursday. Supposed to be nice. I don't care if it is 50 below as long as it's not windy!

Yeah when that wind kicked up yesterday I was like WTH where is this coming from Dana said it is supposed to be breezy today....Great. Kept us in the shack so we didn't really get the benefit of targeting an area. The lake seemed to be dead as we saw very little activity under the ice. Only one fish half interested in what we had for them. I'm not sure if the weekend feed I read about had them all full up or what. Seemed like Saturday and Sunday most people did well. I guess I need to pay more attention to that moon phase information again. Then again what else would I have done??? Slept a little later and saved some gas. that would have been about it.. One more month and we start to see better weather. I know this is a ice fishing site, and I do like to ice fish, but nothing beats a great spring day on the water in the boat. I can't wait!. There I said it.

Bring on April 1st and Salmon season.

If that was me I be happy and consider that I had a pretty good day on the ice.

Thanks FM.

It was fun.

Part of an email from John this am.
"You did a great job. Sam was beaming."
