Fishcanoe's Fishing Report July 1-7

1 post in this topic

Spent the week in the Battle Lake Area and had some OK fishing, but sure could have been better. Lots of people fishing Waldo's on Silver, saw one nice fish boated, I got one 18" on leaches. Tried all the spots - trolling drifting and casting with bait and cranks from 10'-25' rocks and deep weed edges. Saw people thinking they had one but it turned out to be a bass or worse a rocky.

The kids caught some nice bass(and gils) off the dock including an 18" bruser by my 7 year old. Now that was an exciting fight - the fish went under the dock and around the boat lift, all the while he's cranking that spin caster as fast as he can. It dosen't get much better than that.

I also fished AB and the large blue gills were hitting poppers on the fly rod in the morning -thats fun.

My older boy and I tried bowfishing on German. Shot at a few bowfins and one gar - didn't hit anything but it was fun. There was one other boat doing the same thing - they said they had two gar.

All in all it was a fun week - sure wish I could have gotten waldo's though. They seem difficult to catch on Silver, or maybe I'm just not competent or dedicated enough to catch them. Good luck out there

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
