Wilkins

18 posts in this topic

I drilled a 40" pike on Wilkins last night.

It weighed around 20# lbs.

It was a monster for sure.I had just got my new 6'6" ml Grandt and wanted some action.

The bass & smaller pike had been abundandt so we set out for some action.Working just off the cabbage edges I get this small hammerhandle when all of a sudden my rod starts bending in a huge arc. Well then this monster pike swim from under the boat with my 14" pike in it's mouth.

As I'm fighting it it let's go of the pikey about8 feet from the boat. As i'm reeling in the turd he hammers it again.It's not letting go for nothing. So after about 3 runs it comes by the boat & dude nets it.It was 40" and it was around 20 lbs.

I thought we had video but the freakin batteries died on the previou 6 videos of bass.

We got home & were so bummed when it was not on the chip.It was awesome the way it flaired up when it hit that hammer handle on the second go around.

no eyes but 10 bass & a bunch of pike with some rockies mixed in made it a fun time & I do love my new rod.

Good job CK. I caught ine that was 38" memorial weekend. I was fishing for sunnies with a small flu-flu in the weeds.It was on that weedy lake you do not like to fish. I will e-mail it to you since I do not know how to post it.

I'll put it up for you.

I just get frustrated with the weeds over there,not to say it does not have fish in it.

I guess set up with a buzz bait I'd be ok.

Would that weedy lake be any where near the one I took my username from?? We were on a lake known for northerns and bass last weekend, but the wind wouldn't let me troll to well, so we gave it up. Had only 1 hit on a spoon.

You really know how to.....nevermind, it's not worth it.

Its been a while since there have been any 13 inch crappies on Fleming. I'll be up this thurs eve. I'll be checking out the indian names and can any body give me directions to round lake. The small round lake with the church camp on it. I was there a few years ago and my memory is a little foggy accept that if a could drive the old train track bed I could get there.

Thanks, I was never to sure that I could drive on the grade. I thought it was just for atv use. I will certainly take it if that is ok. It will be a lot quicker to get to Palisade to.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!  
    • leech~~
      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
