Day 2

Father and son once again enjoying the Great North Woods in Iron County Wisconsin.

Walleye Today from the T.F.F.

This family is a special unit, awesome job guys. Current is continuing to be “our” best producer for Walleye on the T.F.F. and will be for several days to come. Yes, other people are catching Walleye in other locations. Our fish are coming on bobbers, split shot and a hook. A small jig also works well. Color of the jig can make a difference in the number of strikes we receive and there are times when color makes no difference.

All fish are coming from a variety of depths from 4 to 22 ft. No need to go on and on, most people are doing well on the T.F.F..

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

God Bless

Walleye Today from the T.F.F.

This father and son team work very well together. They enjoy and cherish each other and family. These 2 guys worked very hard and the results speak for themselves as shown below. Lots of questions and correct answers provided there fish. No Jumbo fish were caught today but, a great package was received in a limit of Walleye. I even caught 2 for dinner tonight.

Current is continuing to be "our” best producer for Walleye on the T.F.F.. Reports of Walleye being caught in other locations on the T.F.F. are reported daily with other people on other fishing web sites. Our fish are currently coming from a wide variety of depths, from 4 to 22 ft on the T.F.F..

The cold front of yesterday and thru tonight has slowed our bite but, we also slowed down our presentation, we missed several strikes today but still caught our limit of Walleye. Smaller everything was the answer, "for us". All fish came on minnows. We downsized on all equipment and hardware. Bobber's also work well.

Certain locations produce a few fish and then we move. Sitting in one spot can and does work but, we like to find and offer our presentation to multiple groups of fish.

Also, "we never approach" and fish close to other boats, I respect that, "they were there first".

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

1/2 day

More great people enjoying the Great North Woods in Iron County Wisconsin. Another beautiful sunny morning.

This Gal is a great Angler, she not only smiles all the time, polite, laughs a lot but, she is very knowledgeable about our area and above all she loves fishing, Kayaking, Canoeing, and uses a Row Boat. She sees a lot and catches a lot of fish.

She is srtictly a catch and release Angler so, no stringer pics today. Although a couple of quality fish are posted below. Many fish were caught before the cold front.

All fish on minnows and caught from 4 to 22 ft. Current area's are best (for us) although, some spawning shoreline areas are producing as well, besides the current. “Hold on” as the clouds have rolled in and the wind is from the north west and the temps are rapidly dropping. We are forecast for rain starting now and some tomorrow.

The updated forecast is for this Friday to have a high temp of 54 with AM showers, hopefully that will change.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

God Bless

Crappie shallow, in warm water. Yesterday. 5-7-18

Fishing a small tributary lake connected to a larger lake is where these fish came from. In fact they were right on the shoreline in 1 – 1/2 ft to 3 ft of water and the water temp was 62 degrees. Yes, there are several lakes like this right now producing shallow Crappie even though some bigger lakes are still ice covered.

This small 100 acre lake in particular has water running thru both ends of the lake and has a maximum depth of 18 ft. We actually left the small lake and went back into the larger lake to clean a few fish due to the fact the small lake had no wind due to its size and it was just to hot and we were over dressed.

Yesterday was a sunny warm day as the last 2 weeks have been but, that is over. Our fish all came on minnows, light hooks and light line. The clouds have rolled in and the wind is from the north west and the temps are rapidly dropping. We are forecast for rain from now and tomorrow.

Friday’s high temp that is as of now forecast, is to be 54, as now forecast.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

More great people enjoying the Great North Woods of Iron County Wisconsin. Besides there limit of Walleye caught in and out of the river channels on minnows, (I kept 2 for dinner, that I caught) we enjoyed a bonus catch of this magnificent Sturgeon. A 1 hour and 6 minute video was taken. Jeff Robel watched the first few minutes and then left in his boat.

We enjoyed a total of 4 tremendous leaps out of the water and had to chase the fish with the trolling motor over and over again. Under the boat, around the boat, down to the bottom, then 4 individual 100 ft runs away from the boat, out of the channel, back into the channel edge we were fishing and finally into the boat.

This was an exhausting experience for Dave as he kept saying to all of us in the boat, this is just like catching Tarpon when you and I go to Key West Florida for the past 11 years except, this time we did it on, "6 lb line and a 1/8th oz jig head". This Sturgeon was eventually landed and a quick photo was taken and released, witnessed by another boat watching, a black and silver Lund.

Absolutely an Awesome job Dave. My Hat goes off to you, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this incredible and valiant effort.

Water temps are rising quickly with the bright sunny sky's of the last few days. Many reports of quality catches have been reported all over the north. Even warmer temps are forecast for Monday and Tuesday and then a cool front is moving in.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk.

Day 1. (yesterday)

Great clients who enjoy great fishing. Polite, laughing, joking all day long, wanting to learn and having fun. These guys were awesome as they caught and released many fish and kept a few for the frying pan.

All our fish were spawned out. Some were milking but those were the small males. Lots of fish caught and released. The current areas produced the best. A standard jig and minnow was the best and probably will be for daytime fishing for the next few weeks. Several Crappie were also caught. All fish on minnows.

Water temps are rising quickly with the bright sunny sky's of the last few days. Many reports of quality catches have been reported all over the north. Even warmer temps are forecast for Monday and Tuesday and then a cool front is moving in.

I also will be reporting on other county boards this spring as we follow the bite.
