|Nice Tullibee Ready for Pickling|
Hopefully this was the last cold stretch of the year and we can start warming up a little. Inland walleye season closed on February 21st so the only options are heading to Devils Lake, North Dakota or Lake of the Woods, 6 hours north. There is still plenty of time and ice to fish crappies and I am looking forward to maybe heading back up into the Detroit Lakes, MN area is see if I can repeat my catch of a few weeks ago. I might even decide to take out the wheel house one last time and do an overnight on Mille Lacs to get some more tullibees as they are very good smoked and fun to catch.
I just put the finishing touches on a trip to Charleston, SC in March. For the last few years a couple of my friends from Texas, Joe Stanfield and Matt Davis have been fishing the weekend before our annual APEC conference. This year its in Charlotte, NC so we decided to spend the weekend in Charleston and charter a boat out to the inshore reefs as it's prime time for sheepshead. They are an interesting fish as they have teeth like a human. The last time I fished these was in 2008 out of Jacksonville, FL as my previous post reported. Our captain states they are bigger than this and I am looking forward to getting away and fishing somewhere warm. In the meantime.........
