Got our 12 pack Sunday Evening
6 July 2009, 12:20 am

The neighbor and I headed out from Ida about 5 pm, gased up, and hit Jeff’s for a quick report and some ice. Thanks Jamie.

We set our lines in 24 ft of water and headed east toward the Ohio line.  Tried a couple of new blades on the harnesses I tied up.  Will have pics of the blades later in the week,  but I did a lil’  internet shopping at Frank’s to get these new blades.

The 4 oz bottom bouncers did good, but the boards shined tonight.  Also picked up a couple of fish off the long lines with the #30 Jet Divers running 85 ft back.  Lots of eaters early, with some 18 to 20 inch fish coming in deeper water.

Will have a more detailed report after I get some pics before cleaning the fish in the morning.  They are on ice for tonight in the cooler, with a 5 gal bucket of water on the lid to keep the Petersburg vultures away.  Small joke.

Night all, or good morning for the early risers.

Walleye Spinner Blades: Gone Shopping

Walleye Spinner Blades: Gone Shopping
7 July 2009, 12:30 am



 

This past week I have done a lil’ internet shopping.  Reloaded on some blades that have been working well out on Erie, and to try out some new things.

From Frank’s Great Outdoors, I picked up some more Happy Hooker Hedgehog blades and Gold Mystic colorado spinners.  Silver Streak’s Purple Descent has been steady every trip taken the past three weeks.  They were out of Purple Pirate, so I gave Purple Bubblegum a try and had really good results on Sunday.  Also, with good results were these Tommy Harris spider blades, pink/copper/orange.



The bottom blades on the left are called Whiptails and have been producing well up on Saginaw Bay.  They are from DBFishing up in Algonac, and for 90 cents each I picked up six of each color to try out.  Also, in my order were these  Barbie colorados, and two chopper blade Barbie’s to sample and try out.  I asked if there were any more new colors available, and he said he had some Purple Antifreeze blades, but at the moment only in size #4.  What the heck, give me six of those too.  I have mentioned before something about my addiction didn’t I?

  I met the owners three years ago at the first boat show held at the fairgrounds here in Monroe, good people, and the best prices on their gear available anywhere.  I also picked up an assortment of 1,000 packs of pearl colors in their 6 mm beads for only 5 something a bag.

Will be giving these new blades a whirl this weekend, hopefully with good results.

Jet Divers: a simple modification

Jet Divers: a simple modification
8 July 2009, 2:07 pm

I just got my Stealth (clear) Jet Divers (#30’s and #40’s)  from  JnJ Harbor Drive Thru  today in the mail and am going to share a simple modification that can be made to any diver to make an angler’s job easier on the water.

Have you ever gone to attach your crawler harness to the business end of a diver before?  There is no snap available, you have to cut off your loop knot and tie directly to the snap or in the case of a Jet Diver, the swivel provided.  Its a waste of time, plus can be a headache. 

Same thing with my leaders that are made up for attaching spoons.  At one end I have a snap for the spoon, the other end a good ball bearing swivel.  Now I could have tied a snap to one end, then a snap and swivel to the other, but that has two downfalls.  One I would have tied up some very expensive snap/swivels to the leaders, and the second is having them sitting on the foam roll just sitting there until I actually break out the spoon box.  Its a waste either way you look at it.

The solution is simple, add a snap to the diver so adding a spoon rig or harness actually becomes a “snap” to do.  I tried the smaller Berkley cross lok snaps, but after deforming several of the wire bends in the snap, I went with the duolock snap, the same type already used on the divers in question.  These are less expensive and really work well for the application.  “Easy on”  is the key here.



 

You can use a smaller sized snap if you want, but other than these salmon sized ones, my only other small ones in the shop are dedicated for my perch rigs that I make up, which is coming up fast season wise.  In the case of the Jet Divers, or other types for that matter, just open the clips on the duolock snap, and place through, then close up again.  The bigger snap also makes the process of changing out the leaders or harnesses an easy one.  I always say bigger is better, when it doesn’t bother the fish, why not use it.



 

Its not some big revolution that will sweep the walleye fishing world, and many of you may have thought of it already, but if it works….use it.

good luck

9 July 2009, 10:22 am

Walleye activity remains strong in many locations along with trout and bass action. Before heading to your fishing destination, visit www.AAATraffic.com for the latest traffic, construction, weather and road conditions that may affect your route.

Upper Peninsula  Northwest  West  Southwest

Northeast  East  Central  Southeast

Upper Peninsula:

Windy conditions and a Mayfly hatch are giving anglers a tough time for fishing on Lake Gogebic. Fish are suspended about seven feet off the bottom. Small mouth bass are biting on leeches and the perch action is slow at this point.

Marquette anglers are doing well fishing on Goose Lake for walleye and Lake Superior is giving up some big fish on worms, leeches, minnows and spinners.

L’Anse anglers are doing very well for trout, walleye and perch. Anglers are trolling with Dodgers and getting good results and many are trying out Brad’s Super Baits, a bait-holding lure with rotating action, on salmon and trout with good success on Lake Superior.

Pike activity in Escanaba is picking up and rated as good. Anglers are finding most fish in the weeds all over the Bay and casting or trolling with spinners. Salmon are starting to show up in Cedar River and near Fairport. The Escanaba River is giving up small walleye trolling with small crank baits. Expect to do some sorting to find the keepers.

Fair fishing is taking place around the Manistique area for walleye and bass on Indian Lake. Lake Michigan is giving up some steelhead and salmon 5-7 miles out on spoons.

Sault Ste. Marie anglers continue to find good fishing behind the Power House for whitefish and Atlantic salmon. Walleye are active in the channel and deeper waters.

15 July 2009, 10:52 am

I was recently asked in an email how the garden was going this year.  I had actually meant to do something on this a month or so ago, but like lots of things these days, time just slips away from you.  Will put some then and now shots in.
