Rock Lake/Sarah Report 6-30-07

6 posts in this topic

Nothing and nothing. Went to Rock for an hour and a half and never saw a fish landed between 10 boats. Went over to Sarah for two hours and saw a guy land a 13" walleye which he threw back and he had his livewell running so he must have had at least one keeper. Only action we saw at all between another ten boats.

Yep, I do believe it's over for SW MN until maybe fall. This seems pretty typical around here.

Sometimes Okabena will get a little mid summer run. Been pretty quiet there lately. Had a buddy get a 17" walleye there Friday on a Lindy rig in one of the dredge holes. Nothing to get excited about though.

Fished sarah friday for about an hour and a half and caught 7 walleyes. Couple really nice ones over 20. We kept four and threw the rest back. The best bite was right at noon. As soon as the wind went down we didnt catch anything so we went back to the campground. Tried Shetek that night for about an hour and never caught anything.

Must have been a Friday on some other Lake Sarah...or else everyone we talked to lied to us. Didn't hit plugs, bottom bouncer/harnesses, fireballs, or anything for us

One thing that has always put walleyes in the boat this time of year is the speed that I troll. Crainkbait tuning is a must and location really doesnt matter. I know others have the lake sarah trick down as well.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
