Downrigging picking up yet?

3 posts in this topic

Just wondering if downrigging has picked up on the south shore end of the lake around long point, rocky point, and zipple bay? My boat isn't big enough to make the trip up to garden island etc.

Anyone have any knowledge about how the downrigging has been down on the south side?

Thanks!

It has been pretty good. Nothin real new the usual places

too. We were up with a big group out of River Bend Tuesday

and even with a good deal of wind in the morning, things

settled down and fishing was good. Lots of fish in the

slot and the keepers were real nice ones.

Due to the wind only one boat went further than Long Point

and they had an awful boat ride but a glorious day of

trolling. We are going again this weekend.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
