Houghton Lake 1/17/13

Small walleye caught in 12 FOW on a
 jigging spoon
Fished the north shore of Houghton Lake on Thursday.  Headed out to check some of my summer spots and did lots of hole drilling without finding any fish.  After three hours of searching around I headed back toward the boat launch and found a good looking spot on the map to drill.  On the first hole I check I saw two walleye, so I setup and got out of the wind.  I fished the area for three hours and hooked 4 walleyes all 14 to 14.5 inches and a few pike. 
 
Ice conditions are very good 8 to 10 inches with very little snow cover.
 
Good Luck.....

First Pike of the day.
