Lots of crazy boaters on the Whitefish Chain this weekend. Normally we won't even attempt to fish on Saturday or Sunday because of the idiots that run full throttle a mere 20 yds away. However, today we snuck out to the east end of Little Pine for a little casting for Northerns. Caught a couple of little snakes in 3 ft. of water. Moved to 6-8 ft., caught two more, slightly bigger. Got into 10-12ft. of water, and caught a few more a little bigger yet, but nothing of any real size. Saw many fish down around 16-18ft. We were primarily using double bladed spinners, chartreuse, all orange, and all black with a Mister Twister on the hooks. All in all caught around 8 or 9 Northerns, no real size to speak of, but at least some fish were caught during the two hours that the lake had quieted down a bit between noon and 2PM.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
