1. I caught a ton of monster fish on the Gajo baits line last year. Spirit Shads (dropshot bait), Gajo Sticks (senko style bait) and Swim Shad (swimbait) they have ...more you lined up for largemouth, smallmouth, walleye and pike.
    Some of my favorite colors are AYU, Green Pumpkin Blue-highlight & the new perch! Have to check that perch color's killer in the stick and dropshot. If anyone wants to chat about the baits or colors for certain bodies of water just send me a message.

    1. It's very effective in the right situations, works great on bass obviously but also crappie.
    2. It's fun Rich. Ask Chris about it he loves drop shotting
    3. Rich Pardy
      Nice edit and monster smallie!! I have to try some dropshotting this year, I have never done it.

  3. 2.13.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report

    Hello from the NW Angle!

    On the Minnesota side, fishing has really picked up this week! The ice is thick and temps are ...more nice, making for a much more pleasurable hard-water experience. Less turbidity has really allowed for more natural colors to work. Using the dead stick is still producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as, multiple over 28!

    On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30ft plus in the mud with Tungstens topped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish.

    Until next week,
    Sunset Lodge Ice Team

    1. Looks like a cool place to camp.
    2. Rich Pardy
      Looks like you guys are the only ones who got a winter.

  4. New boat......

    1. There is only 1 problem. The poles are longer than the boat. I started with a 10 footer and still put fish in the boat so good luck to you. Just be careful how you ...more lean.
    2. Rich Pardy
      Nice fishing machine!!

  5. The annual Walk on Water ice fishing derby has been officially canceled for Saturday February 11, 2017 because of unsafe ice conditions. :( They will still be holding ...more a fund raiser in Lindys Landing from 10 am till 2 pm with raffles.

    1. This weather is just the crap...
    2. Morris Campbell
      Better than a walk in water tournament!

  9. Headed down south for a fishing road trip. I have to admit our expectations were for bigger fish (this blue cat is considered average size!) But considering we ...more don't have blue cats in NJ, Im happy to have caught my PB blue catfish at 25lbs...guess we'll just have to go back soon for those real monsters!

  10. I did some walleye fishing on Little Bay de Noc yesterday. It was a good time. I ended up catching 14 walleyes, but all of them were small. The ice was about 15" ...more thick, but the shorelines were a little sloppy due to the warm weather. Still lots of people driving trucks out though.

    Walleye with a Jigging Rapala

    1. Tim Steinmetz
      I am staying off the ice this weekend. It looks like temps are going to be below freezing for the rest of the 10 day outlook, so conditions should be good after ...more another week or so.
    2. jimbo harwood
      nice eye.. we DONT have any ice here in mid Michigan .lol. so I gotta change it up, and trout fish while the rivers are opening up.. nice catch Tim.
    3. clark miller
      nice time awesome catching ! do you think driving is out of the question now .
    4. Rich Pardy
      I knew the walleye master would be back at work soon!!
    5. Nice catch Tim
    6. Drew Gierach
      Outstanding on all fronts, Tim.
    7. that's 14 more small walleye than i've ever pulled through the ice!!! not looking good for this year either cause we don't even have ice anymore!

  11. This period of warm weather has turned the small creek in my back yard into water front property. According to my wife this is not a good enough reason to buy a ...more boat.

    1. Oooppps that was for drew
    2. Rich that's the only way I get a new boat and that's just to go buy it.
    3. If you're gonna ask for forgiveness like Dustin says you should at least make it kid friendly. Try linkers tv boat.
    4. Rich Pardy
      Now that your home is a water front property the value has gone up and you now have more equity so go buy that boat! :)
    5. Drew Gierach
      You live in a fantasy world, Dustin.
    6. Ed Hesse
      show her roof rescues by boat. Well on second thought that may want her to sell lol.
    7. F it! Go buy one! Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission!
    8. buy some waders at least!
    9. Maybe you should just bring home a boat to surprise her we all know wife's love surprises!!! Or do what I do when I get a new gun and my wife says is that a ...more new one... What honey this old thing had it for years!! Lmfao!!
    10. I would dig a 20 acre Lake 35 feet deep and have that creek as a feeder. And then ask her Now can I have a boat?
    11. I agree with Shawn. Never a bad reason to have a boat!
    12. Shawn Gearinger
      There is never a bad reason to buy a boat!
    13. Morris Campbell
      Sure it is Drew..:)
    14. Brad Paradis
      I disagree!
    15. They never are as practical thinkers as men!!!
    16. Wives always ruin things like this. Lol

I am a Fishaholic, I go crazy if I can't fish. My favorite fish are anything that swims and puts up a good fight.
