Wednesday evening was pretty quiet with the cold front that went thru and by Thursday after noon it was already starting to warm up. Thursday evening the few that were out in shallow water did very well. Today,(Friday) I have no reports except some on the deeper spots have had some activity.
We moved most of rentals in for the full moon and night bite. Everything is spread out so they can be quiet, so we will see how that goes.
We have the bridge out over the pressure ridge and will be letting portable and wheelhouse traffic across it for the wekend. I’m pretty sure at some time in the next 24-26 hours with the warmer weather the ice is going to “push” and we will probably be adjusting the bridge at some time during the weekend. So those on the other side might be “stranded” for awhile, but I’m sure it won’t be too long.
What I have seen so far this past week is that the larger Walleye are in the shallower areas as well as most of the smaller Perch. The deeper edges of the reefs and the gravel bars tend to have more 15-18″ Walleye. So far the Tullibee hole and the mud off the Tundra doesn’t have much for bigger Perch, but as this warmer weather stays this week and the time of year will probably start some of the bug hatches that starts that bite. We’ll hope for the best.
Keep a Tight Line! Eddy
