Are there any trout or pike around goose island? We hiked all the way out here and only saw one and got bit off by another. Kinda slow for 5 hrs and counting on the water.

Are there fish in the bay of the island? We parked at rocking chair and hiked out. We are in the middle of goose island and the small island to the west. Tried dead sticking micro tubes for nada and also wore some paint off the blade bait. Don't think pike want a blade bait. Also tried airplane bucktail jig for nada. Also tried agressivley jigging buggle gum mini kasty for nada. Last trip here a pike ate the bubble gum kasty 30 seconds of dropping it down. Is it yesterday's storm shut em down? I knew it was bad to say I've never been skunked icing the mile. Also knew I probably should have went to suckers where I always go.

got my first 11 mile ice skunk....

also dropped my phone down my sight hole. today was awesome!!! heater wouldnt start this morning foreverrr! i guess thats what happens when its -20 out. strikemaster fired right up even after riding in the back of the truck. i love that solo motor.

so i guess tomorrow ill be going back to try to get my phone out with a net. i dont really know what for since the water proof battery charger cover wasnt on. phone stayed on for 2 minutes before the cold sucked the juice out the battery. hah calling the pike over didnt work for me today!
