Pretty awesome. Albert & I left Simcoe this morning at 5:00 am. We met Emil (Icefisherman) at Burwell. By 11:20 this morning we were putting our gear away because we had 18 walleye and 6 rainbow in the box.I have no idea why the walleye are so big but a don't think we even lost one under 4 or 5 pounds. Pictured below is Emil with a 30.5" fish that weighed over 9 pounds. We didn't weigh or measure mine but it's huge. We fished SE of the harbour starting in 58 fow and caught fish just about non stop until we reached 64 fow when done. I caught using the traditional "chicken wing" spoon down 27-37 on the rigger. Emil was killing them with his "Target" worm using 4 to 7 colour lead core. Albert caught trolling an old "silver/blue Bomber" clean and any chartreuse worm harness was hot off the dipsey divers back 90-110 feet on #3. Anything and everything worked. Emil even had a few bows attack his Target worm. He didn't land any but that's how hot it was.

Great work guys. Nice that Emil finally got out and had a good day on Erie. I'm not sure that reeling in those old walleye is quite as exciting as the Lake O salmon but it's still lot's of fun. Hope to make it out again this weekend but we'll see what the weatherman has to offer first.

Thanks guys,

what day it was for sure....and how else could it have been with such a company as Arnie and Albert - the legendary duo...
With a tripple...and couple doubles....waooo....let's not mention names but some of the winnign team got their work cut out for them ha ha ha and had to rest from time to time:D8D

Only 3-4 farm animals, which was great compared to the 50+ we've got with Arnie couple years ago....

Got so excited that even forgot my leadcore rod in Arnie's boat....oh well.....one more reason to go fishing with him again ha ha ha8D
Good thing I didn't forget my camera this time as I've got some great shots with it.

Love the shots of good old timers bellow....as you can see everyone was having great time....thanks for the fun and quality time together guys.















Cheers,

Ice Fisherman

Awesome job guys, I heard you guys on the radio giving Legend Man your general direction....

We were slightly west of where Legend Man was in the 60-61FOW and did good with 7 eyes and 2 bows.

Leadcore was hot for us, 5-7 color with spoons.

Glad you had some success, keep it up.

Cheers

Spoonmaster, it's about 10 miles out to 60 fow. My rule of thumb for Burwell is that it's about 5 miles out to 55 fow and 1 mile for every fow after that. Not exact but seems to hold fairly true for the most part.
