Fishing Report December 22nd

This last week we have seen the best and the mediocre with the perch fishing. What I mean by this is the clients caught their limits of perch when the weather was stable and the barometric pressure remained consistent. The days when fronts moved through the bit got a little tougher meaning, we had to downsize from 1/8th oz buckshots tipped with a minnow head to a tunston jig and waxies. The fish were there we just had to barely move the jig and “twitch” the rod to get them to bite. The walleye bite was better and maybe the fronts didn’t affect them as much as we were able to catch walleyes when we went after them. We caught alot of that 6-10 inch class but we worked through them and got limits of walleyes 14-18″. Buckshots tipped with a minnow head was the trick for the walleyes in that 12-20 ft range. The phone has been ringing off the hook for reservations and my calander is filling fast. I would love to take your group out to experience some of the best ice fishing you will have but, you gotta call and book your trip before it’s too late! I want to take this time to wish all my past and future clients a safe and happy holiday season!                                              MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! John
