Richmond Area Trolling

10 posts in this topic

Anybody have any ideas on trolling in the evenings or at night for eyes in the Richmond area? Typically I do not fish for eyes this time of year but have a cousin coming up for the weekend and wanted to give it a try. mhodsd00@hotmail.com

Thanks for any information.

Try Big Lake, there are quite a few walleyes there.

Mostly small ones.

I personally would give the weedlines on Big fish a shot! There are some real brute eyes in there and night fishing them will be your best option.

Do you mean Big Fish Lake by Avon?

Yes between Cold Spring and Avon off of county rd 50. Koronis also is a good night time trolling lake, Borch is the master of night fishing this gem maybe he can chime in for a few tips.

On Koronis work the inside or outside weed edges. So you'll usually run 8-12 fow or 3-5 fow. The night bite has been slow thus far this summer but it should pick up.

I did not realize there was enough water in Koronis to still get the boat in!! I guess all this rain will probably have helped.

Borch: You been out on Rice lately? Am I going to be able to get my boat off the lift? If not I can always just get into the evening eye bite off the end of the dock.

Plenty of water to get the boat in on Koronis even before the rain.

Peter,

I haven't been on Rice for a while now. I'd guess that Rice jumped up significantly after the rain the past week. It usually does anyways.

I was on Big Fish last night, got quite a few LM bass, a few nice crappies, some smaller gills and a few skinny pike.

No luck on the walleyes, I think the water needs to cool off more, or try and do some night fishing.

The water temp was 71 on the main lake.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
