Ballard's Resort

6 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about jumping on a bus and trying some charter boat fishing Sept 16-20 at Ballard's. Have never fished the LOW and was wondering if this summer/fall transition is a good time of year to be fishing, or should I pass and wait till next spring. Any info would be appreciated.

Joe: If your going to a resort that has charter service, they'll put you on fish just about anytime of the year. Ballards does a good job and the accommodations are first class. Fall is one of the best, if not the smile.gif best time for good fishing. Why wait, you probably will want to go next spring too... Kaz

Last time I was there, they also had some very good looking waitresses. JMO.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
