Hey skawtty Congrats on the the Otter tent. This is my second season with it. I fished three days and slept three nights in it. She was warm and toasty with my Big buddy heater . You will love it.
They are very well insulated. The Otter out performs my Clam Jason Mitchel for warmth. Take care and Tight lines

Default Slow day today

My daughter and I were out today. Great weather day but fishing was tough. We drilled a lot of holes at Norwoldglen, lighthouse and RR23. Next to nothing moving. Saw a few whites in the first hour at Norwoldglen and that was it.

Anyone have any luck with little tungsten jigs or the small marmish jigs? Some are made to look like a maggot.

Ive had some luck with the tungstens and really like them. They thump the bottom well and i add a couple maggs. I find the black and yellow ones work.

That said i have yet to ice a white this year!

My boy grabbed a solid 24" walleye on one of the little tungstens and a minnow head last year.

Ya it was definitely a tough day out there today. We must have drilled 25 holes. We saw hardly any movement. Where did all the whites hide ? We caught a few walleye on the Jawjackers. In all a beautiful day to be out.

Just checking in .... I recall those days, normally found any active Whites in the shallows in the early am and then just before sunset .... the remainder of the day they were scattered just cruising at various depths over deep water (18-25ft) very difficult to get them interested so I spent more time working the shallows looking for different bottom structure & semi-active fish. Fishin should improve over the next week.

Hey Zip !!! Great to hear from you . Thank you for the advice. I plan on going next Friday. I hope your enjoying your time away. Zip I was at Lesser Slave Lake a few weeks ago . The fishing on a traditional jig head and minnow was not producing . Fishing was flat. For the heck of it I tried your red wire worm pattern with the green glow bead. Zip I was catching Walleye and Perch consistently and the odd white fish. My friends were shocked

JJ .... tks for the plug, pleased to read a few of the suggestions produced. Fishin will pick up this weekend, hope you do well.

Too bad, Mr Happy will miss out on all the fun. Wonder if we'll even see a pic of his salt water P.V. Adventure ?

Edit: ... put the fishin pole & golf clubs away, going to the Barrett-Jackson Auction this weekend .... it's the biggest deal in Phoenix, can't miss out.
