Yesterday was a quieter day out there. Not many fishermen and the bite was slower, especially in shallower. Seemed the best was 20-28 feet with the Perch and Walleyes.
I moved more houses deeper for the weekend as it seems some of the baitfish are going deeper from what I’ve been hearing from anglers. What was sort of crazy is that the deeper mud areas off the gravel don’t seem to be having much for Perch and the mud closer to the deeper reefs in closer has them. So that is where we are going to be.
The ice is still pretty calm after last weeks “rumble” on the south end. And I’m thinking it will stay that way if we can get thru tomorrow’s almost 40 degree day. The weather forecasted over the weekend and into next week couldn’t be much better to get out and enjoy a day on the ice. Compared to last winter this is a 100% turnaround. And with Mille Lacs fishery in a apparent start of a recovery it is fun to be out there.
Don’t forget the Lyback’s/TWP Tournament on Feb. 21st. We are up to 110 entries and the cap is 150, so get your spot before it’s gone. This year because of last years cancellation due to weather. We will have enough prizes for everyone so even if you don’t place with a fish, the door prize will be worth the trip!
Keep a Tight Line!
