  4. 18 lb. 8 oz. Lake Trout with a thunderstick

    1. This reminds me of the day I forgot my net at home. I trolled up 9 Lakers one of which was about the same size as that one. The other was even bigger I lost both ...more at the boat. The biggest one I fought for 38 minutes. My buddy Ted passed me 3 times and asked if I hooked another one. I said nope same one. I could not get it off the bottom. Finally had it to the boat and no net. The fishes mouth where it was hooked was tore, he or she made a final head shake and bye bye the fly popped out. Both would have been my PB, I slammed my pole down and screamed bloody murder. So congrats on that monster. A lot of people say Lake trout don't fight. They have never hooked a real monster.

      Thanks Brian. Hard to net a fish like that. His mouth wide open like a sail at 2 mph. Trying to steer the boat, real in the line, and net him at the same time.
    16. Bet that guy put a bend in the rod!!! Nice one!!!
    17. Mike Scher 0
      Yeah buddy! I was thinking they would be in the shallow water this time of year.
    18. Buddy Pierce 0
      Hi mike. Trolling in 18 feet of water. Water temp 37.0 degrees surface. Running around 1.9 mph. Also seen a few brown trout off the rocks. Good luck!!!

      Thank guys. Know you guys would like that one. So much fun. I fish solo. Navigate, drive the boat, and run the lines. All with the wind blowing at 20 mph.

  9. What a day. Caught few more that were short. Lost few more nice ones at the ice. πŸŽ£πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€


    1. Buddy Pierce 0
      I just fish deep in the day time off a point or drop off. And move up in the evening for walleye. The right spot makes a difference. Max I more open water over ...more my spot. Good luck!!!
    2. Buddy Pierce 0
      I not sure. 16 to 22 inch range is what I get fishing there. It is a stocked lake.
    3. is there any large walleye? i only keep small ones but enjoy catching large females.
    4. any tips on locating and catching yellow perch?
    5. Buddy Pierce 0
      This lake is vary difficult to fish. I have been fishing here for years. Early spring we troll crank bait in shallow water. Summer we use crawler harness in the ...more weeds and drop off. Look at the fish map and look for long shallow runs 10 foot of water or less
    6. Crappie Slayer 0
      how is this lake during the spring/ summer
    7. Otto Shragal 0
      I may sneak out again tomorrow and if I do it will be on flint.
    8. Buddy Pierce 0
      Otto, I might go over to flint tomorrow. Will be snow tomorrow afternoons. Maxinkuckee has open water, and it's getting worse by the minute. My spot there ...more has been burned.
    9. Otto Shragal 0
      Yes I did. Going to try to hit flint tomorrow but may not be able to get out there until afternoon which is not a good time for that lake typically on the ice. I ...more tried to post some gills today but doesn’t seem like i am doing it right because I can’t see that they are posting. They were all over anything black or purple for me today.
