    Default Sloppy Sunday Fun

    Didn't get a super early start today - probably had something to do with a bottle of Forty Creek the night before. Managed to get going about 10am and trail and ice travel made it a little past 11 am before i wet a line.


    First spot i set up was dead dead. Stayed there until about 2pm and finally got sick of nothing so packed up and headed 15 km further down the lake to a location about 200 yards out from the mouth of a secluded decent size creek. My original plan had been to head there first but the sleep-in combined with the slush made me a little paranoid. Being solo with a heavy sled the last thing i wanted was to get stuck (although i have screw in anchors, straps and a come along in the toboggan at all times - still not fun).


    I should of went to the planned spot right away. 30 seconds after wetting my line i lost something (probs a perch or small eye) half way up on the retrieve. So progressed the rest of the afternoon. Non-stop - no time or need to put in a second deadstick hole. In 2 hours i landed 8 eyes in the 12 to 16 inch range and perhaps a dozen perch. Lost at least as many as i landed. Ran out of minnows at 5 pm.


    Tackle consisted of a Little Cleo tipped with 3 inch shiners. Never tried anything else as they started hitting that right away and didn't stop until my minnows were gone. Once out of minnows i packed it in as riding in the slush in the dark is something i try to avoid.


    Average afternoon perch (this guy was 11 inches):





    Average afternoon eye:
