The Northwood was out on Marie Sunday from 10:00 until 1:00 pm.  Only a few other brave souls were out there.   Action was very slow and the wind made it very tough for drifting.  Anchored in all the areas we fished.  Blade baits netted us stripers and sheep.  Each spot was good for 3 or 4 fish and then nothing.  Tight lines !   IC

I checked the Fox Waterway website and the levels are actually a little high since the last rains.  I'll see if the crappies are still biting today.

Late Report from Sunday.  Fished in the wind and rain on Channel from 9:30 am - 1:30 pm.  Eventually found some nice crappies and small bluegills in 4-7 FOW right on the weed line.  Worked a small jig and bait under a bobber.  Conditions were tough.  It looked like there was some sort of Muskie tournament going on.  Tom's and Muskie Tails were both closed on Sunday.

I called Musky Tales and the owner indicated his pier is still in... Apparently, they are drawing down for winter so the water level is low. He indicated I should be able to get my boat in as he pulled a boat out several days back. If you are going out on Thursday let me know (posting or PM me). I would be interested sharing any 411...


Cheers,

John

Go to Barnacle Bobs off Rt. 173/4th   or go to the Thirsty Turtle which is on Channel Lake.  You can also call the Sand Bar which is on Marie and see if their launch is still open.  That is closest to Bluff Lake.

Northwood fished Marie from lunch time unitl about 3:30 pm on Saturday.  Enjoyed the company of Haji and New Hip Magoo.  Had to work for our fish but got some nice sheep, crappies and stripers in 15-20 fow.  We were all thin fishing blade baits, with various colors.  Fun time just letting the boats float around.  Great afternoon to be out.  Thanks Barnicle Bob for letting us launch.  Fishing should be good for the next three or four weekends.  Tight lines !   IC
