The last week

6 posts in this topic

Fishing has slowed down over the past week from what it has been. Many of our groups are getting fish, but it hasn't been as easy as it was.

Many folks have started to have there best look in deeper water, 30-32 feet, either with bottom bouncers and spinners or pulling deep running Tail Dancers out in the middle of nowhere.

All of us here at Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay would like to thank all of the groups that we have had through here over the last couple of weeks. It has been a great time and everyone that we have met thru FM has been a class act. I look forward to meeting many more of you in the upcoming weeks.

>>>pulling deep running Tail Dancers out in the middle of nowhere.

We resembled that remark. grin.gif pull cranks between mud flats, rig on the mud breaks, lather, rinse, repeat! Oh my!

Hey Paul, how'd you and your co-pilot do Saturday eve?

>>>Are the fish showing any color preference on the cranks?

Might I suggest Red head wonderbread or metallic trout reef runner?

Assuming you're running the deep Reef Runners as opposed to the shallow on a three-way, snap weights, etc.

Thanks for the info!

We shared similar results last week we were up with a small group Thursday through Sunday. Tursday was our best day for #'s of fish and least amout of time on the water. We did fairly well every day but the bite surely slowed down in the short time we were there. We had our best luck with lindys and crawlers anywhere from 26-32+ FOW. Like metioned earlier out in the middle of knowhere. We fished 8-Mile flat mainly. We did have a little success on leeches and the bobber fishermen were catching a few. I think spinners would have worked too but personaly just not my style of fishing. The fish were deffinatly on the move so that might have been a better option to locate active fish. Good luck grin.gif

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
