If you make it charlevoix one weekend soon can set something up on the pier catching lake trout and lake herring.

Life got busy and I'll admit I've neglected the site past couple years.
  I'm happy to see it's still alive and active.   I'm getting married in October and I'm still out there fishing !!   Here's a bit of fish porn and I plan to be more active again

Opening Saturday night of April this year

Bass last September

I wasn't to impressed with the prices either.  That was one place I didn't care for to begin with. The prices have always been high so I've chose mom and pop stores.   
Mc sports closeout was nice tho got some good plastics.

Dutchmens bay then walking the point to olstrom bay.   Not the best ice I went real light on gear.  No shanty just a bucket.

Decided to brave the rain today And drill some holes in the ice.  I setup tipups and jigged tungsten jigs fire tiger was all I got bites on.   I did a bit of hole hopping but I left the tip ups in 12' of water 4' off bottom.  I had two flags all day and neither had fish on them

Couldn't get into any gills either (damn I need a flasher). 

I did get into some perch right on bottom on 10' water but they were all dinks :/

Caught about dozen those. Zero keepers

General Fishing / Leaders for pike
« on: January 30, 2016, 05:44:55 PM »
Okay I'm curious to get some opinions from some icefishing members here about those damn pike.  What type of leader materiAl do you prefer for tipup fishing? Steel, flouro, mono or braid.  I'm assuming most are steel / flouro.

What pound test do you prefer if flouro?

How long of a leader do you use on a tipup?

I'm using 20lb flouro and it's going pretty strong.  I'm finally feeling confident going this route instead of steel. What's your guys thoughts if any?

I'll get some pictures up soon, gotta love flag up!

Gosh lake charlevoix really kicking my ass this ice season.  That is all.

General Fishing / Re: what do you guys think about Spiderwire & Fireline?

I've caught a lot of salmon on 15lb FireWire.  It's all I'll use to throw locos and ko's.

Very sketchy ice still where I fish on lake charlevoix.  I've been accessing it at dutchmens bay boat launch.   The ice is pretty crappy I would advise safety and spudding as you go.   I've hit a couple inland lakes and we have caught some hammer handle pike

Really hoping this next week can firm up the ice after Tuesday.  Really itching to hug for some walleye and brown trout.

They've pulled shanties in east Jordan. There was one close to shore opposite side the tourist park

Washington open water which is a bummer

Holy island has no safe ice really yet, at least not for my liking. 

That's my report.

A good long handled net would be real handy

One walleye lost 2 others
