Weekend Fishing

5 posts in this topic

Wondering how the bite was this past weekend for those who were out? I'll be fishing starting this coming Wed through Sun. Weather looks good as long as the front they're predicting Wed night doesn't affect them too much. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks

Fishing has been pretty good lately, this stable weather and wind has helped keep the bite going for a good part of the day. It's a little different story when it's 85-90 and sunny with no wind, but if you want 'em bad enough you can find fish. I don't think the front forcasted for Wed. (if we're looking at the same weather forecast confused.gif) will do much. The one I've heard about sounds pretty insignificant.

I'm pretty sure the techniques and tips for how to catch walleyes on here has been pounded plenty so if you want more on that just do a little searching. Pulling plugs on the reef has been producing for us for what it's worth.

Fishing on Rainy was pretty consistant and good this weekend. Nothing real big, 23" was the biggest but a lot of nice fish, and fish of all size for that matter. Good luck.

I just returned from fishing rainy for 3 days. Fishing was good, the walleyes were biting pretty consistantly next to white rock reefs. Biggest was 27 inch fish, that looked like it ate a football. There is no comparing the mille lacs walleyes and rainy fish as far as weight per inch. The rainy fish are huge.

Thanks for the input. I'll post up how we do when we get back. Probably be stopping by the one-stop around 11-12 tomorrow morning, maybe someone from here will be around.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
