Fishing Report From The Past Week 6/6/07

1 post in this topic

I haven't been out since last Sunday but am in contact with alot of tourney anglers and resorts.

Here is what I am hearing;

Walleyes are still very active with bigger fish starting to bite. Although there are still a very great amount of slot fish being caught. Leeches, crawlers, and fatheads are the main live baits. Crankbaits are doing well also out in the deep rocks and flats.

The fish are on the move. The report that I am getting from anglers from Fishers Resort, Hunter Winfield's, Twin Pines, Red Door, Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort is that the fish are not staying in just one area of structure so staying mobile is the key. Fish the wind blown side of any structure and you will find those walleyes.

Small Mouth and Large Mouth Bass are getting some really good reports. The rocks ajacent to transition areas are producing some large bass. More and more Large Mouths are being caught this year too. 6lb Smallies are becoming the norm up here. Its Just Unbelievable!

Leeches, swim baits, crankbaits, and tube jigs and surface baits in the early mornings and late evenings are getting the bass.

Fish On!!!

      Just wondering if there was any new info/topic on upper red?

      There is about a million skid houses for sale around the lake that you may get pretty good deals on if you don't want to go through all the work.

      10/23/16     Central MN      Cold front last week and again this morning brought new ducks into central MN. Mainly observed migrating flocks of ringnecks, wigeon, gadwalls, canvasbacks, and mallards--calendar migrators from ND and southern Canada most likely. Had a few good days of duck hunting from a boat on a couple mid-sized shallow lakes. It is that time of the year for calendar migrators. Any time you can get out over the next couple weeks during or the day after a strong west or NW wind, or the day after a cold, clear night with a light westerly wind go for it. Soon these ducks will blow through and we will be waiting for the hardy Canadian ducks that stay just south of the snow and ice line. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Brian, That certainly can not be a good thing for Vermilion! I have not seen it that bad on Big Bay yet. Cliff

      I was back up to morris yesterday oct 22 fished afternoon for about 3 hrs. in 17 to 19 feet caught about 25 walleye and sauger mix average size about 10 in. only 2 keepers. Lots of boats everyone was catching fish. I'm guessing I missed as many as I caught. Stinger saved the day!
