Fished Friday and Saturday. Friday was better than Saturday. 2 walleye (12”&14”)and 1 perch (11”)on Saturday. There was some spots with slush on top of the ice. It wasn’t bad this year as last year at this time. There was a east wind on Saturday. I never have a whole lot of luck with that wind. We will be headed back out at the end of the month. Good luck. Be safe. Tight lines.

Went out of sucker hole this afternoon. Did not find any ice thinner than 8”, most was 10”ish. Travel very easy, not much snow or slush on ice. Fishing was slow, caught two small eyes and a pike, also had a few drops. Hooked a large fish on the jig pole after dark but it got off. Targeted 7-8’ depth, I’m new to this lake, if anybody wants to throw me a bone, I don’t want spots but I could use some patterns.
Fished Monday 10/8 out of Gile, had the lake to ourselves as far as we could see in the rain. Picked up 15 or so eyes, mostly under 13”, and one pike. All fish came from the deep edges of rock faces, 12-18’ deep. Xl fats on 1/16 oz jigs. Beautiful colors out there right now.

Fished the Gile in the Evening (july 17th) and caught some big small mouth bass up in shallow water around the islands. Small plastics amd jigs worked well and trolling a sucker minnow behind the boat had lots of action! Had 5 hits while casting spinners (musky and pike) and had a big musky hit a sucker while reeling it in. It was a fun flowage! I recommend!

My son and I just back from hurley. The walleye were biting pretty good. Bass were biting in shallow water. We caught enough for a good fish fry. Good luck to you all.
