Long Rod Day Today.....
« on: January 19, 2017, 05:13:32 PM »
Well,
I have decided to take a bit of a safety break from all this bad, warm, rainy weather... causing bad ice in many places.
I love ice fishing but I have no desire to risk it all by looking for safe ice just to say I'm on a lake fishing.....  Nor am i really intrigued about walking the plank to get onto a lake.. :+
Just my personal preferences.

So today I pushed the sled to the side for a while and broke out the Cat Rods!!!  Threaded up 2 rods and headed to a favorite spot on the Old Susky River...  It was very good action at the first line wetting for Cats for 2017!!!!

Managed to beach 4 nice Channel Cats...  nothing really big to write home about but it was nice cat action!  They're a little light on the bite and sluggish on pulling that bait runner but once hooked it was show time.... Even with this cold water and weather, they gave a nice fight hugging the bottom for the whole fight...

4 long rods cats for 2017 in January!!!  And they are hungry!!  Fish On!!!     !<>! !<>!

I was.out Wednesday and.Thursday. Tried for eyes on Wed. and cats yesterday. No eyes but a monster carp to bend the rod. Yesterday I hit two new spots taking stock in their future potential.  Lots of potential but no cats. lol

Yea zziipp....
That's how the river was yesterday..  But there were no ice bergs floating down, very little debris and very little if any ice on the shore line. 
But the mud was thick and slick like monkey snot.

Me and my Buddy RedBlurr got out tonite on the river.
The weather was great.
Ran in to 2 guys i knew as i was changing into my boots.
They had 4 walley between them.biggest 22".
Bucktail jigs with crawler heads.

I was there for the Cats!!!!!!
We beached a bunch  from 20" to 29"
The bite was better mid afternoon than evening.
Was a real good time.
Was even better having RedBlurr fishing with me.
Gunna rain tomorrow.
Clean the mudd off the gear and watch the Greenbay Falcons game.
Go GREEN BAY!!!!!!!
HOPEFULLY ILL BE BACK ON ICE NEXT WEEKEND.
GREAT TO HIT THE RIVER WITH YOU REDBLURR!!!!!!#
WISH YA HAD A BEER WITH ME.
NEXT TIME.
