Anyone been out targeting smallies lately. I went out with a guy last Thursday and split time fishing for some walleyes and I took him smallie fishing for a bit. We didn't catch any smallies, only a bite or 2. Has it been slow for smallies lately. Thanks mad.gif

Fished 8/25 for walleyes. Had no luck except ruff fish. Trolled lead-core and planner boards with walley divers, shad raps, and a few other baits. Trolled by Ericksons Point and Point no Point. Stayed in the 20' area.

Fished on 8/25 hoping too find some crappies, but the walleyes more than surprised us. Here is our count for the day. 30 walleyes, 10 keepers. 5 saugers. 6 crappies. About 30 smallies, none legal. 5 catfish. And we figured about 60 bluegills, some real bulls mixed in there. The walleyes pretty much were all caught trolling and were all caught in less than 2 hours. Everything else caught on jigs/ half a crawler. We were running out of crawlers so fast we decided too troll a bit and it paid off. A piece of advice, leadline not needed. Maybe some people are having luck with it but the fish we found were anything but deep. I don't know if we hit the right day or if there is some consitency too this or not.

What depths did you catch the walleyes in? Any certain colors that seemed to work better than others?

I was out both Sunday and Monday morning looking for some walleye this weekend. We found plenty of them but nothing really worth bragging about. They were all in the 14" range. We were pulling Rapalas in 6-8'fow. When we got a little deeper the 10-13' range we were catching white bass in the 2 - 3lb range. They are fun to catch thats for sure especially on the pan fish rod.

I went out with my boys this morning and enjoyed a great top water bite for the smallies.... We had 3 fish in the boat within the first 10 minutes... I would say 25-30 all together... once the wind picked up it was more difficult to fish... We had some good fish boated and boy are they fun on top water baits... I don't know how to post pics on this forum or I could show you a few.... surface water temp between 61 and 63 degrees... Tight lines... Rob

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      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
