Water level-east Seely landing

8 posts in this topic

How is the water level for launching a boat at the forest service landing on the north shore of cutfoot? If that is too low, how about Plughat by the dam, will be up the last week end of Sept. for one last go at the eye's and will ask for some fishing info next week.

I called Eagles Nest Lodge and they said they thought it was best to land at the bridge or williams narrows, they felt east seely landing was to shallow to land at, i will be going there this weekend thru october 7 so maybe we will see ya up there, small pull behind camper, brown dodge pickupat east seely campground

Hoping to hear if eagles nest is deep enough, if that is not then i doubt highly that deer lake canal has much water in it

I launched my boat at seely bay over labor day weekend, it is WAY low! I have a small boat so it was no problem, but I was able to walk my boat out to the end of the dock without getting my knees wet.

Farmfishing: How big of a boat did you put in at Plughat, this time last year I dinged up the prop quite a bit there, thanks.

Did the rain of the past few days or that which might come this week, raise the water level in Cutfoot/Winnie? Any fishing reports as of late for Winnie walleyes? Heading up Friday night for the week end.

      Dad and I fished this past Saturday and Sunday with portables and saying the fishing was slow would be an understatement. Between the 2 days we hit the mud flats pretty hard and stayed very mobile. Didn't even set up a house during the day because it was so nice out. We fished the mudflats from East Flat down to Blue Jug, over to 8 Mile and back up to Matton Flat. The day bite was very tough, we would mark fish but they wouldn't want much to do with it. We picked up 3 eyes Saturday morning with the biggest being 17" then picked up only 3 more during the day. They only seemed to hit our dead sticks with a shiner on it. We used mainly VMC gold perch tingler spoons and flutter spoons without much luck jigging. On Saturday night we had a sleeper rented from Twin Pines Resort and our house was in 20'. We had 6 bites throughout the night with a bigger fish breaking off and a couple smaller ones being caught. We really had to give them a lot of time to inhale the shiner. On Sunday we went back out to the Mud Flats with little confidence and the fishing was pretty slow again. Didn't hear many good reports from this weekend, not sure if it was the warm weather along with the pressure system or what.

      I think your best bet would be the narrows on Pelican. That can be pretty good crappie and walleye area. I usually fish it a couple times earlier in the season. Otherwise closer to Battle Lake you could give South Turtle or East and West Lost a try.

      I thought Clitherall was pretty good but never fished panfish down there.  I fish mainly the Perham/DL area.   Panfish have been very skitish as of lately.  We have been using mainly 4mm and 5 mm jigs for crappies but the panfish are wanting 3 mm jigs.  Best luck has been with a horizontal shapped jig tipped with 2-3 wax worms (depending on hook and wax worm size) very lightly jigged.  Most of the action has been once they appear is to reel up above them 5-8 feet then slowly drop down stopping 1-2 feet above them and twitching the jig LIGHTLY.  Anything with a "GLOW" has been killer for paints.  The lakes I've been fishing have almost a foot of snow and the water was merky prior to freeze up so even though the sun is up I'm still hitting the jigs with the UV Light and the fish are instantly reacting.  I've been targetting deeper holes and finding them in that 20-30' mark but I've heard some reports that they have started coming back up into the shallows and hitting the green weeds again.  Crappies right away this year were liking the 5 mm jigs tipped with a wax worm and soft plastic suspended but they have started preferring smaller jigs also.  Hope this helps you some.

      Caught a few walleyes on o'dowds this weekend. Was marking a lot of fish on the bottom but very skidish and not willing to bite very well. Anyone else have any luck on o'dowds?
