I was on Grindstone lake on Monday [6/8/15] and had a great day on the water. Tony and I went to my favorite spot for crappies but they just didn’t want to bite. Se we decided to drift down the shoreline and check out another spot. It was a area where I Ice fish for trout. There is a overhanging bush with branches right to the bottom. Caught a few crappies right away. Then had something on that took out some drag, and I thought it may be a trout or a bass. Turned out to be a 15 inch crappie.
Then we noticed surfacing all around us. So I decided to toss a small spoon close to the area where I knew trout were surfacing. Got a hit right away. Turned out to be a nice 15 inch brown trout. So we both started to cast spoons and caught 3 more. A loon appeared near us and I knew that great bird had something to do in the action getting very slow to none all of the sudden.
I decided to move up the shore some and continue casting while drifting back to our original spot, knowing the loon moved away. On our drift we caught more browns and lost a couple of big ones. The largest brown was 20 inches. Kept a total of 6. Never seen anything like it in all the years I have fished this lake. All browns and plenty of them. Great day.
