Pulaski

13 posts in this topic

Fished pulaski this am and did fairly well on bass. Must have caught a dozen rock bass, 10 or so Largies with an 18 incher and a few 17s mixed in. Saw 5 walleyes floating in about a 400 yard strech near the north west shore close to docks. Whats with that? Deep hooks, caught deep and not released fast enough. Largest one was proabably 18 inches and the smallest was around 14inches or so... Kinda depressing. Anyone else see these floaters? Not many boats out there at all this am. I really don't like their parking situation they have going there. smirk.gif

There are'nt too many people that would release a walleye of any size on pulaski. I would say warm water bends before hooking mortality. Pretty interesting though.

May need to check on the thermocline. That may have something to do with it?

didn't do so hot... pattern that worked well wed didn't produce yesterday. We ended up in 8th place with two small 13.5 inch bass. Winning weight was 7lbs with three... I had that the day before prefishing with an 18, and two 17's... Oh well. Too much recreation out there. Jet skiers everywhere with very little regard to how close they get to you while your fishing outside weed edge. I can't stand that.

How many boats were in your outing (tourney)? Is there a fee?

I think there was 11 or 12 that night. We have a limit of 15 but have never got that many. Yep there is a small fee. Twenty per boat. There is only two or three weeks left in this league though as they started the thursday after opener.

$20.00 per boat, per week times 10 boat average. Makes for a nice piece of change.

Yeah but we pay out 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, as well as put a certain % away for the final tourny. 2.00 out of the twenty per boat also goes into a cash pot for largest pike of the day. All in all it's really more about pride and for me its a great way to just get better and better. I beleive that after fishing this league the past three summers I have become much more familiar with area lakes and a much more well rounded angler than I would have ever been. I must admit that I've become much more into Bass than I ever thought I'd be. Used to be just Walleyes and pike... Now, probably targeting bass about80% of the time on the water. While I'm here... what do you guys know about Granite lake and specifically the Bass population? Later. smirk.gif

Most leagues I have come across are bass leagues. Even the fishing club I fished with, was more into bass then walleye. Northerns are, just to bad you wasted your time. I liked fishing bass but I eat walleyes so I would there catch eyes now.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
