Big Northern
12/12/09 Definitely a Winter Fishing Marathon. When we left with the boat in tow at 5:45am,we had no idea whether or not we would be able to get on the lake or if we were going to be iced out. That one hour drive seemed much longer this time. We pulled up and (note that all along I KNEW we’d get on the lake,cause I sent a prayer upstairs!) ;) the launch had beautiful open water at the end of it. It took some doing to get the boat in the water with the launch having about 10 inches of snow and ice at the bottom. We made it tho!! Half the lake was froze and while we were standing in a boat casting crankbaits,we watched guys drilling holes in the ice to icefish on the same lake!! Air temp didn’t get above 22 degrees and the water temp was between 32 and 36 degrees. We were limited as to spots to fish due to only having half the lake open,but we made due. 90 percent of the fish we caught were just BIG fish! We kept a couple of eater sized walleye for a meal and all other fish swam away happy. When you can get on a lake in Mid December….you’re just HAPPY to be on open water and any fish is just icing on the cake! Bald eagles were soaring above our heads,we obviously had the open water to ourselves (since most aren’t as durable/crazy as we are.) and we had a jet come down and swoop the middle of the lake and do a few rolls as a nice little air show. Just an all around GREAT day on the water again with friends! ;)
