Fished 8-11:30 this morning out of Bayshore. Mostly fished by Vokes where a lot of other boats seemed to be also. Plug and planer board got the first and only keeper 21" walleye. The wind never let up and the waves got bigger towards noon. Kept by the reefs and got hung up on rocks more than usual. Surface temps were 67 degrees. Harnesses were great for catching small white bass. Walleyes hit the plugs today.
Mid Monday morning, ended up heading south again after the rain ended, dropping lines south of Vokes. Fished some reefs for over an hour changing up body baits and harness colors. They were down there but nothing. Finally the baking sun came out and near noon I got a bite on a pink/white harness. After the keeper walleye, we got hit by dinky white bass and two sheepshead. A slight breeze picked up cooling things down but we decided to call it quits.

Fished to the north this time from Red river to the south which was the only way to go as the wind picked up all morning from a northerly direction. Tough sledding with white caps but PK"s boat got us two fish today; one 23'' and another 21"walleye, both caught on perchy looking plugs. The water was 47degrees to the north which was way cooler than the 57 degree water we fished on Thursday. Bit of a crowd both leaving at 8, and getting back at11:30AM. Nothing on the crawler harness today. The pic is of the fish that bit the metallic perch wally diver.

Headed south from the launch and motored past the guys by Vokes. Dropped lines: planer boards, longline rods, and one bottom bouncer with a crawler harness. Nothing for close to an hour then the diving plug on the longline got hit. The wind petered out and sun winked thru the clouds, and the bite continued. The harness got three walleyes and one white bass. The body baits ended up edging the harness at the end. Fished from 7:30-11:30AM ; kept 4 medium sized eyes, and released two barely over 15. The big surprise was getting the crawler bites. Fun trip for PK and my first time out this year.

set up yesterday outside the breakwall about 12:00 pm The first 1/4 mile of ice is very rough with 6-10’ mounds all along the beach. Leave the ATV’s at home if plan to come here. Although the ice was 12”-16” thick it was difficult to clear the slush from the hole due to the build up of slush underneath the ice. Fished till dark leaving with only 3 Whitefish. Alway’s remember... icefishing and swimming are two different sports! Have an Ice day!
