We were the idiots out there Saturday for most of the day. It was cold and windy. Wanted a shot at the last big fish of the year. Oh well. Now we wait for some ice.
Had a job get canceled so I was home all weekend, never made it out to the bar though, I was busy with the kids all weekend.
Was that you out all yesterday? It looked like a rough day to fish. I had a huge Musky on a weeks ago on a Medusa but like you it only had the tails in its mouth. I thought I just had some weeds but when I got it up to the dock and it just opened up and let go.
As far as action on my shore I have not been around a lot lately to do any fishing. Boat has been pulled for weeks now and the dock comes out tonight. Then I wait for Ice Ice Baby...

Got out one last time for the open water season. Looking for the elusive apex predator with no go. I felt one good rip while jigging a bondy in the main basin however it bit the back of the bait where there were no hooks. Other than that it was a cold one.
Water temp was 38-39 all over the lake. No ice anywhere.

Been doing well in the evenings with minnows. Walleye, crappie, bass and pike have all been busy. Everything went back for another day.
As far as trolling, people are doing it all the time with kickers out here.
