My dad has been going to south manistique and a few are catching good walleyes...haven't heard about any big perch. He's going out Thursday will post what I hear...If it's good we are heading up Friday to fish Saturday...
I own a cabin on the south lake, I went up last weekend and the fishing was great, especially the walleyes...the ice is 8 inches in most places so its safe enough, I am going up again tomorrow night for the weekend, hope to have the same good fishing...well good luck!
Heard that is was real windy up there today and turning colder...round lake has good ice , but giving up no good size of fish. Big man was real slushy but walleye went cold....oh heck I'm heading up!!!!!
Stop in at I believe it's JR's in curtis they know what to use...Heard perch weren't biting too good, but who cares I'm going!!! First time out with our newer shanty...anybody going to have a radio?? I'd like to meet some of ya...
We have been going up the first week in jan the last few years and have done prety well with the eye's we are hearding up Sun Morning and will be up there all week. there will be 5 guys blue fish trap shanty and sleds .(probly a couple of emty's near by) if you see us stop by and have a cold one
went to Big Manistique instead this weekend. Did good on perch -slow but ended up with a pail. 2-3 nice ones rest were smaller. Caught 2 small walleye. we had fun though. Going up again in a few weeks...how did you guys do?
fished Sat and Sun on S Manistique, brought back 13 perch, part of Sunday's catch. Probably had 30 or so smaller ones and one northern about 24 ". ice was about 10 to 12 inches with a couple vehicles driving out. (I did't like the way the ice was cracking when they passed our shaty! Had a real good time, this was my better half's and my first time ice fishing at curtis and first time with a Vex. The vex was great, I think we're going to have to start saving for another.
I know what you mean about buying another...we have an aqua vu scout but seems like we can only get it to see one of our set ups...xmas present for me next year!!! We are going back MLKing day---both have the Monday off.....
The way me and my dad do it is just put the aqua in its own hole pointing toward your set ups you can see the first two great but the other two its kind of hard
but you can still see the fish bite isn't that what the aqua view is for though.
I fished the South lake Friday - Sunday....did very well, killed the walleyes, caught a couple of pike, around 30-40 perch...couple of 11 inchers and even a whitefish!:yikes: ...been fishing this lake forever this is the first time i catch one. Good to hear you guys all had a good time!
