Car pooled with pello up north. No snow on the ground. Stopped at Riches and borrowed his auger. Then we went straight to Chippewa Bay. There was only 2 other fisherman out there. Shorelines were weak, couldn’t use the wheeler. Luckily there is a long public dock that put you way out on thick ice. We were set up by around noon. Overall the fishing was good; pello killed the perch on tipups then caught a nice 26 and 27 inch pike within 10 minutes of each other. I only got 2 small pike and a pretty nice 13” perch.
Had to start early to get rich back his auger. I had the holes drilled before the sun came up, caught one pike when it was still dark out. Major front came in and dumped about a foot of snow on the area. Fishing was terrible, we set up right in front of pellos camp, won’t be fishing there again, ever. Pellos father in laws buddy showed up on his tractor, he lives with his mom and is looking forward to taking her bedroom. Pellos family showed up and we went to the Redwood weigh in. It was interesting, they don’t go by weight! There was a huge crappie. They have a category for the strangest fish. A bullhead won. We entered the perch; it was in first for a bit but got beat. Next up, Clayton!
