Weekend Fishing

Recommended Posts

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

Flick

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.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
