MOON PHASE (21%)
I made a trip over for the day for whatever may bite. The landings are in good shape, but the warm temperatures can take care of that in a hurry. The ice on the lake is still in good shape.
I started out at Sandstone and there were only a few folks out. I set up in 85 fow with few fish showing up. Then church let out and I had Ciscos from 65 fow to the bottom! The odd part was that they stayed there for at least a half hour. Good times!
Then it was time for some catfishin'. I did see one Laker caught and another fish that I could not tell what it was. The bottom was covered with bait sized perch. I did have one hit and miss, but nothing to put on the cleaning table.
Was a really nice day out, but few on the ice.

Fished off sandstone yesterday with no luck. Marked some fish, but could not get any takers. I am new to lake trout fishing and was wondering if one of you that have had success on Big Green on lakers could message me. I was jigging a gold castmaster most of the time. Are spoons the bait of choice, or are you catching them on jigs and minnows? Tip ups work? I would love to ice one before the ice deteriorates. Thanks!
