|Houghton Lake West Shore 1-2-14|
Today I moved to the West shore and fished in 10 FOW straight out of the West launch. I got out at 1pm and scouted until I found a good weed area. Started fishing at 3:30pm jigging a slick jig and a Lindy Darter. Missed a walleye that came in for the dater at twenty after four and then hooked my first walleye on the slick jig at 5:30pm. Watching the camera and my jigs I noticed that the walleyes came into the darter and if they missed it they hit the slower jigged slick jig tipped with a minnow. I ended up with four keepers all caught in about 35 minutes. In my last two trips I haven't had a flag on my tip up which is odd.
The ice is great with 9 to 12 inches where I have fished. Snow is deep in spots making quad travel difficult.
