Sunday Action

11 posts in this topic

The action was pretty good yesterday. We caught a handfull of nice fish (22", 2-25" and a 27 1/2"), and saw lots of other big ones being pulled out by other boats. It was definitely as advertised, the mudflats had good action, but they were all big ones, no keepers that I saw. Leech was the ticket for us. Thanks for the info on the previous posts fellas about the chart bead and red hook. That's what produced for us.

My thoughts exactly Rodmaker! Buddy and I had a blast, even though we didn't catch a ton of fish, every fish we did catch was a beauty and over the slot, perfect! That's why I fish Mille Lacs, for the big ones. Kudos to the DNR for their management of that lake, nothing like pulling up 5+ pound walleyes all day long (assuming you can find them).

NO GO. I spent the weekend buying a crib. Let me tell you, I would have rather been fishing. The little guy is going to be living better than me. But its like the wedding, you just bring the credit card and keep your mouth shut. That or I will never fish again.

Your'e right. I remember those days. Just enjoy them!!! They grow up fast. We have a Senior graduating form Gustavus next year , and our youngest is going to be a Freshman at Irondale HS.

Maybe, and if your wife gives you an"you deserve a break and go fishing", give me a call.

I'll Post my Fri results Mon. I have photos from my 6/13 trip that should be showing up in the next day or so.

She does no my alias, but I she thinks that we are all mentally ill for talking about fishing this much so she never checks up on me. She is a psychologist so she might be right. I call it passionate, she calls me obsessed. Oh well. Here is the kicker though. I got an invitation to come up on Thursday, however I was told No because I have to save my vacation days for the baby.

Sounds like our home. They say the same. I think I'm both passionate & Obsessed for sure. Seems like everytime I'm driving home from a day there, I'm thinking how soon I can get up there again. grin.gif

It's all worth it once the little one is here. Of course that is easy for me to say since I made it out this past Sunday and has similiar results. Between 3 of us we had over a dozen fish in 4 hours, and only 2 keepers. It wasn't fast and furious but those big ones are fun to catch. Not many lakes you can catch big walleyes in the middle of the day in 90 degree heat without a cloud in the sky. grin.gif

I wish I had the same luck as you. We went to about 8 different flats and managed 1 23 incher, then headed in to garrison reef and got a 21 and 25 right away. No keepers.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
