RL weekend fishing report

3 posts in this topic

Was up Thurs afternoon through Saturday. Got the skivvy from Bill at RL1Stop whose advice on shoreline was right on.

Nightcrawlers and spinners in 20-30 ft of water. Some mid day a little deeper too. The action was good in the mornings, slowed down a bit in the afternoons and then the evenings were good again. Plenty of slot fish with the biggest at 26" and the most came in at that 14"-17". Blade color of gold, Orange/black, Perch, and actually just about most colors worked.

We knew things were going our way Friday when in the afternoon we found 7 full cans of PBR floating right by our boat and after an hour of ice time they really hit the spot. This was right after dodging the thunder storm. PBR from heaven.

Appears that a few walleyes are on the reefs now too as we started catching them Saturday and that was where the biggest one was caught. But, definately had more numbers come from shoreline yet. This coming weekend the reefs should be going better.

Thanks Bill! See you in August.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
