Cold Front?

4 posts in this topic

Coming up this weekend, wondering if the cold front has slowed things down or changed the pattern any.

Haven't been out since last weekend, but the front/storm that came thru last Friday afternoon didn't effect fishing much except that the waves made it a little tougher. This front may have dropped the water temps a few degrees, but the stable weather should keep fishing good. I bet a quite few more big pike will start showing on the reefs with the cooler weather grin.gif. Good luck!

later,

We had a working weekend at deer camp this past weekend and hit the water for a few hours Sat. afternoon. We picked up 3 fish with 4 lines down and talked to several other boats at the landing and all had similar luck. One of our party was up the previous weekend and hammered them in the same area so I would say the cold front shut them down for us on Saturday.

My wife and I fished out of Zippel on Nicks boat last Thursday, full day charter.

One guy on the boat was on the day prior and he said the boat had their limit of eye's by 11am, we didn't do quite that well.

By 3pm we were fished out and we had our legal limit of fish and four saugers. There were some doubles and a few times all 6 lines were out of the water at once.

An older guy from Minneapolis and I seemed to have the best luck with the larger eye's our turns were back to back too. We caught a 22, 23, 25in eye's and he caught and couldn't revive a 29.5 eye. My 30.5 in eye fared better and after a handful of pics she swam away under her own strength. Five fish from 4-10 lbs, two people one outing, not bad!!!

It was a pleasure to finally ride along on Nicks personal boat and even better to land and release my biggest eye yet.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
