Thursday evening the Walleye bite was fair for those that stayed out overnight despite the wind and extreme temps.   It warmed up overnight and the barometer dropped.  Yesterday fishing was slow.  I moved a couple houses out into the mud looking for Perch but instead “keepers” Walleyes were caught.   It’s been hard to find any consistent Perch action this year. Once and awhile someone gets into them, but all in all it’s been tough.  I’m beginning to believe that if there are any amounts of keepable Perch, they are being chased around by all the big fish we have in this lake?   (Walleyes, Muskys, Northern).  I  think the lake is way out of balance and I hope something can change with the way things are done with our DNR and Bands at their technical meeting this week.  Something needs to change pretty soon.

Remember the TWP Tournament is Feb 23rd.   We are up to 90 contestants and we are going to limit it to 150, so if your are interested enter asap.   It is 100% payback and the more enter the more prizes there will be.  Entry fee is $40.00/person.  You can call and register and send a check.  When received  we get a ticket for you and keep it here with your name, number in an envelope that you can pick up anytime or the day of the Tournament.  We will be having prizes from Vexilar, Lowrance, Clam,  Ice Armor, Ion and others.  All prizes will be fishing related.  We will pay back cash to the first 3 places, in Walleye, Northern, Perch and Tullibee.  Any places not claimed will be given as door prizes later.  Contest is Saturday only and in areas that Lyback’s Ice Fishing maintain.

Keep a Tight Line!!    Eddy
