Never caught so many nice fish

Recommended Posts


Was out on Pool 4 today and had the best day ever. We were long lining #7 shad raps 65-70 feet back pulling planner boards on our outside lines and running lead core with jointed wally divers 2 1/2 colors out. We were fishing in 13-16 feet of water. We caught a 29 1/2 inch walleye that must have weight 10+ pounds. A 26", 24.5", 3-23" and a bunch from 14-17 inchers. How has everyone else been doing?

I would say pool 4 is the hottest I have ever seen in years for this time of year.

I just got back from P4 for the evening bite. Caught plenty of "eater size" fish pulling cranks in the main channel. My larger fish came from dragging jigs on various current seams.

The fishing has been fantastic for most folks willing to experiment and work at establishing a pattern. I plan to spend a considerable amount of time on the water the next few weeks. It should be alot of fun if the bite holds up!

      Mille Lacs would be a good choice. One of the resorts should be able hook you up.

      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
