  2. Went out Wednesday afternoon (7/3) and Friday morning for walleye, couldn't find a program to get them to bite. Fished from 60'-72', marked fish anywhere from 30' to the bottom. Markings were sporadic and based on radio chatter it was hit and miss for everyone. Seems like they aren't really schooloing up yet. Ran in and went back out for perch Friday afternoon (7/5) and had a 2 person limit in less the 2 hours. Couldn't keep the hooks in the water, often had a hookup before the bail was closed. 62' of water pretty much straight north out of the harbor. Went back out early Saturday morning to the same spot, started a little slow, but then got going again around 7:30am. Had our 3 person limit by 10:00 am. All real nice fish, with a good mix of big ones in the 12"-14" range. Used emerald shiners off of crappie rigs.
  3. I am taking a trip over to the East side at the end of June. I have some 45# and want to run some copper with harnesses or maybe a spoon/plug pattern. What would you guys spool up for 18' to 24' deep waters. The new Bloodrun results have a 50' of 45#copper running 10' at 2.0mph. we usually run 1.0 to 1.5 I am thinking this could be a good one to start with.
  4. Finally got my chores done and got the shakedown done. The fog limited the number of spots that I was willing to hit. We jigged up 9. All on plastics. It is ON! Hope the afternoon storms hold out so I can hit it again.Re76MP95HLk
  5. Friday's trip saw me and my clients head to the north end of the bay and troll harnesses. I think we would have had a great day if not for all the sheepshead. I have never seen so many sheepshead in the bay in my life!!! But, we weeded through them and ended up with 8 keepers even though we quit early due to one of my clients not feeling so well. The bite on Saturday was a little tougher with the north winds we had but we still scrounged up a nice mess of fish. The bite today was much improved (though it didn't start until 11:00am)and we brought back 17 keeper walleye and 3 really nice smallmouth bass. Most of the keepers came between 11:00 and 2:00 when we called it a day. Summer is going fast folks, better get out there...
  6. Another great day on the bay today, as I had long time clients Denny Gustafson and Jim Lewinski from the Chicago area. Jim "the enticer" Sr. could not make the trip this time, and I'm sure the guys will let him know that he missed out on lots of fun. We got on the water around 6:30 a.m. and it was pretty fast and furious the first two hours of the day, then when the wind really kicked up...the fishing slowed. I was really looking forward to the wind kicking up, because that usually turns the fish on big time and I thought we would have a fantastic day fishing. I'm glad we got out there early, because the later it got, the slower it got. We did manage to get our 15 fish limit of really nice walleyes and we released some beautiful smallies as well. We caught all our fish drifting with floating jig heads tipped with just a small 2 inch piece of night crawler. We called it a day shortly after 1 p.m. and headed back to the fish cleaning shack at the resort. Hopefully the cold front moving through tonight doesn't shut the fish down too much, we'll be back out there tomorrow trying it again. Here's a picture from today's trip, good luck from all of us in the Bay de Noc area.
  7. Today I had the opportunity to fish with part of a great family from the Orion area of lower Michigan. Only three of the five family members went fishing. Bridgette, Kathleen and their dad Mike came aboard for a five hour trip on the bay. We left the resort shortly after 6 a.m., and when we got to the Gladstone Yacht Harbor and I saw the flags already blowing...I knew it was going to get windy! As most of you know, I am not fond of a west wind, mostly because it makes boat control very difficult when all of the structure in the bay goes north and south. We put out two small drift socks to stabilize the boat and slow us down some, and by using the auto pilot we were able to keep a pretty steady speed of .9 to 1.0 mph. I was quite surprised at how many boats were out there this morning, especially for how windy it was. As for the fishing...it was actually pretty good, especially the average size of the fish. We didn't catch nearly as many small fish as we've been getting lately, and we had several nice fish over 20 inches today. Most were 16 to 19 inchers though. Harnesses and bottom bouncers caught all the fish. We quit shortly after 11 a.m. when the wind really started cranking, but we ended up with 11 really nice walleyes for them to take home and enjoy. I really enjoyed today, it's always nice to get families that enjoy spending time together in the outdoors. Here's a couple pictures of today's trip, good luck from all of us in the Bays de Noc area.
  8. Today's trip was with Dale DeWildt from Appleton Wisconsin. I had a great trip with Dale and his son back on opening day. We let some rain showers pass by early this morning, then headed out on the bay. It's been a great bite lately and today was no exception. It started out good, slowed some, then when the wind started to blow a little it was "game on". The last hour and a half of our trip we could not keep 6 lines in the water. At one point we caught 8 fish within ten minutes with only half our lines out. It was fast and furious to say the least. Lots of little fish today again, which is great for the future, but we did catch somewhere between 25 to 30 keepers too. It was really fun for me because usually the clients get to catch the fish...but when they bite like they did today I got to catch a lot of them too. For the last 45 minutes we decided to put away the trolling gear and we drifted through the huge school of fish with floating jigs tipped with 1/2 crawlers for some hands-on fun and we actually caught some larger fish than what we already had in the livewell, but they were released because I don't like to do much culling when the water temperature is 75 degrees. With all the undersized fish released, we easily caught close to 50 walleyes this morning. Good luck from all of us in the Bay de Noc area.
  9. I thought the fishing was very slow to extremely bad. I didn't get skunked but I came very close to it. On the radio and at the docks, everyone had the same results. We fished from the Black Hole to the Spark Plug in the 20' to 24ft. range and from 20' to 13' range from the Rifle Bar to Pinconning with no concentrations of fish anywhere. My personal theory is that the weeds that have grown to 5 or 6' are scattering the fish from the big groups to the bait and oxygen that the pockets of hidden weeds contain. I would be intereste in hearing from everyone else. Any Opinions? Captain Russ
  10. My wife Theresa and I tried another spot this evening that we have never fished before with so-so results. We really didn't mark all that many, but she did catch her first hog of the season! I only had one hit the whole time, and the darn thing came off. It did feel like a keeper though. It hit a "doctored up" #9 GGT Rap about 6 feet off bottom. Theresa started off catching a couple throwbacks. Then about 5:45 she hooked into a good one. Turned out to be dandy 28 inch walleye that weighed exactly 8 pounds. Unfortunately, the darn thing flopped pretty hard just before I took her picture, and in the process, ripped one of her gills. We didn't think she would make it, so we ended up keeping her and had her for dinner tonight! I had to set the video camera down to help get the fish thru the hole, but the camera was still running and you can hear how excited my wife was when I got the fish on the ice. Theresa caught one more throwback after that and then we came in. I think Theresa caught the first two throwbacks on a #7 Clown Rap and the last two fish on a size 8 Holographic Blue/Green Ice Darter. Have to try this spot on a cloudy day next time. I think it has potential. A friend of mine that was fishing a little shallower than us marked way more fish than we did tonight. He also caught a hog. See ya on the ice... Kevin Lee d4NQkDL4Jxo
