Fishing 2/26/18 "Shakedown Run by Captain Juls

  Fishing 2/26/18 "Shakedown Run"...:) Woke up at 2am, which is normal for me right now, and had my morning coffee to start the day in quiet solitude. I headed out to go let the dogs out of the kennels at the Humane Society of Ottawa County, here in Port Clinton. It's a "no kill" shelter I work at during the off season. After cleaning the kennels and feeding my canine friends, I headed to the pool where I do my water aerobics after work. The water was chilly, but I forced myself to get in and did what I had to do. I rushed home to let my dogs out again, grab a bite to eat, and got ready to go fishing with Capt Kevin. We were taking his boat today, because he has a trip tomorrow, and wanted to do a shakedown run, before he took customers out. I'll be loading all my gear in my new Ranger tomorrow, and calibrating 10 Tekota 500's that I had re-spooled with the new line the other day. I might have a trip or two this weekend, but nothing has been confirmed as of this writing. E ...

Fishing with Dan, Matt, and Ryan 7/5/17

Fishing with Dan, Matt, and Ryan 7/5/17 By Captain Juls with Juls Walleye Fishing Adventures Dan Bishop and his two sons, Ryan and Matt, are staying at the campground right down the street from me, so they met me in my driveway this morning at 4:30. We headed to Big Bopper's for some breakfast, before hitting Hi Way Bait and Tackle for some ice. I also loaded up on some of the good colors of Skipper 9 perch rigs, since the fella that used to make them has passed away, and I'm too lazy to figure out how he tied them. We launched out of Mazurik's at 6am and headed east of Kelly's for the morning. I had the rods all rigged up with 2oz inline weights with crawler harnesses that I tied up with (1) #4 Octopus Hook, (1) #6 treble hook, (8) 8mm beads, a quick change clevis from DutchFork.com, and some #5 and #6 Colorado blades with copper hammered backs, anti freeze backs, and pink antifreeze backs. We pulled those in 38 foot of water at 40, 45, 47, 51, 57, 65, 75, and 85 back a ...

Fishing with the Parker Brothers Randy, Jim, and Dick 6/9/17

Fishing with the Parker Brothers Randy, Jim, and Dick 6/9/17 I arrived at Mazurik's at 5am. The remnants of a full moon lit up the parking lot, pushing away the darkness. My crew was supposed to meet me there at 5:15, but they were early too. Yay! The sky starts getting light enough to see by 5:15 now...and, by 5:30AM it's almost light enough to not need the running lights lit up on the boat. With a 5-10mph SSW wind, we headed north out of Mazurik's to the area between the Bass Islands, Middle Island, and Kelly's Island...to look for a starting point. I set the Ranger down off plane, to take a picture of the sunrise...and, look for good fish marks on the Humminbird. After finding some decent marks, we started to set up. Randy has fished for Bass all his life, and had contacted me a little while ago to set this trip up as a "learning" trip. He wanted to learn how to troll successfully for walleye. He went out and bought a used Ranger 621, and all the trolling equipment he th ...

Fishing with Dee, Steve, and Brian 5/23/17

This morning, I left the house at 4:30, thinking I had enough time to get to Mazurik's launch by 5:30, after gassing up, getting ice, and grabbing some breakfast at Big Boppers. I was wrong. I was close...but, I was wrong.   I managed to get the gas and ice with a 1/2 hour left, but there was a snafu with my ordering at Big Boppers. I walked in, and there was only one other person there....so, I ordered pancakes and bacon, because I figured that would be really quick, and I could make it to the launch with time to spare. However, my order didn't get started right away, because lots of people poured in after I went in the bathroom. lol Anyway, after a quick text to let my crew know they didn't have to get there until 5:45 instead of 5:30...I got a response back stating that they were already there. Ugh! That figures...not often my crew beats me to the launch, but it would have to happen this morning. I wolfed down my breakfast, and got out of there as fast as I could, ...

Fishing with Captain Juls: Ken Braho and Family 4/18/15

Fishing with Captain Juls Fishing with Ken Braho and Family 4/18/15 Part two of a one day/two trip adventure.... Ken, Amy, and Tyler had jumped in my boat for the second round of fishing yesterday. They have never trolled with inline planer boards before, so it was a quick lesson setting the baits out with the snap weights and Off Shore boards. Ken's son Tyler caught on very quickly, and was left to set lines on his side of the boat while I showed Ken and Amy how to do it on their side of the boat. As usual, women only have to be told once how to do something, and Amy had it down pat. Ken, on the other hand, who I would find to be very entertaining throughout the day, needed a more watchful eye. lol (I say that in jest....he did just fine, but was fun to pick on, because he was picking on me!) I don't need to tell you the program, because after a successful first trip in the morning, we didn't change anything. We headed right back to the NW corner of Kelly's and set up. We picked u ...

World Record Perch

          EAGLE, Idaho -- Last winter, 12-year-old Tia Wiese and her dad went ice fishing expecting to catch some big fish. The Wiese's had no idea just how big one of their catches would be. On March 1, 2014, Tia and her dad, Gary, set up on Lake Cascade expecting to catch a yellow perch. Tia's line went screaming off and the fish got tangled in two other lines. With help from her dad, Tia was able to reel in the giant perch. Gary weighed the fish on his personal scale and knew it was close to a state record. He rushed to Cascade to have her fish weighed on a certified scale where his suspicions were confirmed. "I couldn't quit smiling," says Tia. "It was the biggest perch I've seen. I was kind of hoping it was a state record." Tia's yellow perch weighed in at 2 pounds 11.68 ounces, making it the new state record holder. After visiting the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in Wisconsin, Gary learned that the world record for yellow perch caught while ice fishing w ...

Take Your Pick for First Ice

Take Your Pick for First Ice by Ron Anlauf   There are plenty of good first ice destinations but these are my personal pics and they’re some dandies.  From big walleyes to giant pike to eye poppin perch you can take your pick and it really is all good.  Sure they all probably require some extra drive time but they are all about as close to a lead pipe cinch as you can get.   First on the list is Lake of the Woods which puts out tons of walleyes every year.  From the Rainy River, to Pine Island, to the NW Angle; the fishing is always good.  Sure there are times when it’s better than others and you can run into difficult fishing on occasion but even then it’s still good, especially when you compare it to any other fishery.  The early season action starts out relatively shallow along the break line off of Pine Island and moves deeper and deeper as the season progresses.  Same thing for shoreline breaks all the way over to Long Point and beyond.  As good ice develo ...
