Any reports from Stella?

9 posts in this topic

Just wondering if any of you guys have been out on Stella. I usually fish there later in the summer and do pretty good. I wanted to try it today but it was just a little to breezy. So I tried the Crow and caught three little bullheads. Oh well better than working I guess. grin.gif

Fished Stella last thurs for league. We did good fishing for bass. Ended up in forth place with 5 lb 15 oz with three fish. Winning weight was 13 lbs weighing in two eyes and three bass. All fish were caught under 10 fow. I had the most luck throwing a storms wiggle wort in the pearch pattern. Fun lake... I personally think I caught about 20 or so bass in that three hour span.

fever, was it a stella/washington tourny, or did you have to stay on stella? If you could go on washington, did most of the bigger fish come out of there? thanks, friendly

Our league is out of Winstead. Originally out of Lester Prairies Port hole bar but that closed and we moved. We fish every thursday on a different lake that is randomly chosen at 3pm that day. We don't alow more than 15 boats so as to not require a tournament permit. As for that night on Stella. Yea we had to stay on the Stella side as Stella was the lake that was drawn. Washington is on the list as well but we have yet to fish it. So far we've hit Jennie, Mary, and Stella. Last week got rescheduled due to poor weather. Wonder what it'll be tonight.... I'm always in a good mood on thursdays because of the league... We've had very stable conditions the last 3-4 days, I think the bite should be good.

I was on Belle today and didn't find any walleye either. Where did they go and what do they want? I've all but emptied the tacklebox the past few times out with not much success. frown.gif

There were 8-10 other boats out this morning with me and most of them left the lake before I did, so there isn't much happening it appears.

Dan,

I fished Belle for a couple hours yesterday morning and it was pretty quiet too. A storm rolled through about 5 am, so that miight have durned the fishing off to start the day. No walleyes so we tried to give the bass a try. Only caught a couple little ones near some docks. Still learning the lake a bit, but where is a good spot for the bass to hang out? There's really not a lot of good weeds or weed edges on that lake. Is the north end decent or does it warm up too fast and the bass hang deeper?

A couple weeks ago the walleyes were fairly active one evening.

Thanks, Coach Dog

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
