Hot...lots of limit catches. Albert and I joined Icefisherman aboard his boat today. 17 walleye and 2 bows. We had 17 eyes before noon and certainly should have caught the 18th but between accidental electrical issues and me getting a hook buried in my finger, we pulled the rods with 17 eyes. Everything worked when they were biting. 3 eyes came off the boards dragging a hot lips 150-180 feet back clean, the riggers fired consistently 42 feet down with spoons or body baits back 50-70 feet. The lead core fired consistently with 8-10 colours (we didn't land many) and so did the dipsey 120 feet back on #3. Lures and body baits worked, worm harnesses did not. Good luck....no photos...I had the camera in my lunch container and the temperature change steamed it up so bad it didn't work. We were in 62 fow SE of the harbour. 4 hours at the Norfolk General to have the hook removed.

Hi Kirk....we certainly tried to get the hook out. Even tried to rip it out. I was hoping to learn a good procedure at the hospital but they cut it out. Great if you have a scalpel on board your boat.
