My weekend report

1 post in this topic

We fished for 6 hours Friday. It was a beautiful slight wind day. We hit Doe island and Hawkbill point for smallies. Didn't do very well. We threw tubes,cranks,top water and live bait. This area of the lake had alot of boats around it fishing bass and musky. We trolled no mans land for 1 1/2 hours with deep tail dancers.(nothing) We marked tons of bait fish out around the mud. We seen a few boats on top of the Blue Jug and that was it. Some in our group fished sloppys Friday night from 9 to 1:00 am. 2, walleye 26" and one missed bite. Another boat went to Rocky Reef. 1, 8" walleye and a small perch.

Saturday was windy,rainy and cool. I fished from 8:30am to 11:30. I was driving across hawkbill reef when my hat flew off for the second time. Picked it up and looked at my graph and was marking fish. I was in 21ft of water. Tried anchoring and bobber fishing. Caught perch. Anchor was having a hard time keeeping me in place. I should have drifted with the sea anchors or trolled some cranks but deciced to get out of the wind/rain. It was pretty slow fishing. I didn't see one boat pull in a fish. There was a small group of boats fishing the east side of hennipen island. Looked like they were anchored. Otherwise everyone was moving around alot.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
