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.

Why don't you go find the Walleyes and 13" Crappies on Fleming?

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.

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!
    • redlabguy
      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.
