    Made the first trip to lac today. Fished two spots and both were plentiful with fish. Fish were vicious today. Below is two 17.5” walleyes that smacked a darter back to back. We released a 27 inch walleye. 12” ice everywhere. One ice ridge at sand point. No snow, all ice. Trucks not recommended unless the knock down the ice ridge at sand point. We took a side by side out. 13A31639-23A1-491A-85DB-1261B5ACC7A4.MOV

    Keep in mind that while there are trophy walleye there, it is a sanctuary and they are closed all year. If you do hook into one, ensure a timely and safe release!

    With enough ice to walk on after this last cold spell, me and the dog ventured on the ice to do a little hard water fishing. It was unexpected but the walleye bite was on. After 8 hours of effort landed five walleyes between 22-27". All but the 22 incher was released (gut hooked).

    I usually use small minnows on a set line. If just a minnow isn't working I tie on a small gold Williams wobbler (no hook) then tie about 8" of line to a hook below it. As the minnow swims it makes the spoon dance acting as a flasher. Jigging I use small panfish style tube jigs or buck shot rattle spoons. If that doesn't work I go home and drink.

    I tend to agree. However there are anglers who push the limits throughout the season. Those who risk going for a swim when venturing out on thin ice or near open water no matter which species they are targeting. Hopefully this video will help them evaluate ice, the risk involved and return home safe and sound.

    An even wiser rule of thumb. If you need an ice ⛏pick to check thickness...stay the hell off 💦🐳

    Ice consitancy varies among all lakes, we were fishing a lake that had 22 inches of ice where we were fishing all day. When we were leaving the lake and heading to the landing we lost four trucks and i almost lost my father, the god of who taught me fishing. Very important to check ice thicknees every 100 yds or even more when in doubt. If in doubht stay off. We all made it back to shore and are still fishing. Very lucky and trucks can be replaced but a life can`t be. Be careful and fish on.

    3 early ice essentials 1, safety picks/ice picks don’t go out with out them! 2, chisel to check thickness 3, floater suit/lifejacket so you don’t use all of your energy staying above the water, gotta save the energy to get out.

    Can you provide a link to the article? I as well as other members would be interested in reading it. The Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act prohibits the wastage of fish flesh which is suitable for human consumption (by the person who has taken the fish). So, in general terms, a person may use the “parts” of fish (tails, fins, skin, eyes, etc.) as bait, but anglers should not use entire fish they have harvested, other than baitfish, as bait. One alternative to using angler-caught fish is to buy fish from a commercial fisher or someone else who can legally sell yellow perch; the “flesh wastage” provision does not apply to fish that have been purchased. Mark Robbins Provincial Enforcement Specialist Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry This would also apply to Walleye Cheeks as bait because the cheeks are a well known edible part of the fish. You are legally only allowed 4 or 8 cheeks depending on your possession limit. "Parts of a fish constitute “a fish” therefore, you must consume all of the edible flesh in order to take it out of your possession limit. An individual would not be able to save up more cheeks than what would correspond with the total possession limit."

    So yesterday was our last day on the water for this year. We put the boat into hibernation mode. What a great year we had! Lots of Walleye. Lots of Bass. Huge Salmon. Trophy Pike. Man we had a great time on the Kam. I put a somewhat similar video on the club page so feel free to check that one out as well. The link is below the video. Will be working on a 2017 in review production in the near future so watch for that. Thanks for watching and tight lines. http://fishingboard.thunderbayfishing.com/index.php?/topic/18691-the-final-countdown-2017/&tab=comments#comment-117211

    Anyone catch a decent eating sized Perch in the Kam this year. They have eluded me thus far but that may be due to my style of fishing this river. I will keep trying.

    Took a pass through the Oxbow yesterday looking for a wandering Walleye. In the spring you could motor right around the island but not now. She is just choked with grass weeds and pads on the west side. Caught this fellow in the 15 to 17ft range along the rocks. It almost jumped into the boat. Didn't spend a lot of time in there so only this one was caught. The only other interesting thing of note which I failed to capture was 7 turtles all sunning themselves on a stump sticking out of the water. Hope you enjoy the video.
