Short multi-lake report...

2 posts in this topic

Fished a few SC MN lakes last Wednesday and Thursday. A front came through and may have negatively impacted the fishing. Things seem more stable now so the fishing should improve.

Madison, actually fished it Tuesday night right after the storm. Found some active crappies along the grassy island area. Best depths seemed to be 4-10 ft. Drifting plastics put most of the fish in the boat. Tried trolling rapalas around the same areas and the narrows but only caught 1 big bullhead at dark.

Tetonka. Water was very green and smelled. Fishing was about the same. Spent a total of about 8 hours on the water. Casted shoreline areas were the wind had been blowing and came up empty. Finally, after covering lots of shallow shoreline and some weedline in the hatchery bay, I opted to fish near some other boats on a hump out from Best Point. Graph was full of fish. A few nice gills and crappies were had but nothing fast and furious.

Frances. The goal on this lake was to find some bass. Hammerhanlde pike were on fire however and inhaled everything put in the water. Switched to panfish and found lots of nice gills in 3-5 fow.

Reeds lake lots of smallish bass and a few nice pike. Biggest going 32".

Crappies were hard to come by on most lakes. Madison seemed to provide the most consistant entertainment. All fished realesed. Was going to hit Clear lake in Waseca on the way home but, I heard the sewer backed up in the lake after the rains so I passed. Overall it was a good few days in the boat. Weather was great after the rain grin.gif

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
