12/24/11 Tip Uuuuup!!!

I had a nice outing today with my wife and little one. We put tip-ups over a weedbed and had good numbers of Pike with a few big-uns. I was realy impressed with my wifes "start the mower" hooksets.

12/23/11 'Gills

I know, I'm not realy a panfish guy but I tried a new spot that I have been thinking about for a few years. I managed to ice a couple dozen above average 'gills and four small Crappies. I had so much fun I may be targeting those rascals again soon.

12/10/11 Early Ice Gold

I managed seven Walleyes tonight (14,17,18,24,24,25,28) in about 2-1/2 hours of fishing. Also landed a Pike and a decent 11" Perch. The four biggest fish came on a large shiner below a tip-up.

12/7/11 Report And Gear Check

I made a quick trip up to Upper Red Lake yesterday afternoon to try and ice some 'eyes and test out my new portie. I managed eight fish in four hours, all between 14" and 20". All of my action came on a Smelt colored Lindy Rattlin' Flyer sweetened with a minnow decapitation. (8 f.o.w.) The few that I missed then fell to my minnow rod (fathead). I later swapped out the tiny hook on this spoon for a slightly bigger one and it seemed to hook much better.

Cheers and hooksets!
