Anybody ever do any good on the walleyes on loon?
Suspended. 4’-6’ off the bottom. Sometimes higher. Once in a while, right under the ice, especially late ice.
Koschkee, do you find crappies suspended in the 20' flat or pick them off the bottom. I drilled all over it last week and didn't mark a fish.
Try dropping a lantern on the ice after dark in the hole off the island. I’ve never caught anything huge, but the crappie action can get pretty hot. If you try it, let me know what you think. Message me or whatever. I’m curious how you do. I’ve also don’t this on Montana, Veil, and Washington. White Clay. Seems to work on little lakes with little structure over the holes.
How’s the fishing on Loon going this year? Anybody have any reports to share?
26° - 30° F
Fished the point for a hour or so.. nothin. Moved over East of the ramp had a couple gills just before dark almost one after the other. All small. Still nice to get out. Going all day tomorrow..
anyone know of good pike and gill locations on this lake?
21° - 25° F
Was there 12-26-20, solid black ice of 5" in the places we went, and that was 4 days ago with plenty of cold since then. All good South of the island and for a good distance around it. There was a beaver trapper who lives in the area and warned us of potential thin ice and open water (any time of the year) in the Northwest portions of the lake where springs flow in.
Fished various locations from the south ramp along the west shore and around the island. Nothing biting. Suspect the clear ice made for easy spooking of fish [there was no snow at the time but it has since snowed over]. Kids had fun slipping and scooting around.
