Fish/Island Lake Reports

3 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about getting out later today. Has anyone had any success with the walley bite? I'm thinking it's a good time to start using minnows...too early you think? Any advice would be great...I'll give an update tonight!! Thanks.

As of last weekend Fish had been slow but Island is really picking up. We trolled cranks and caught a few but had more hook ups jigging a sucker minnow or shiner in deeper waters. That may change as the water temp is coming down and you can look shallower. Key seemed to be rock/gravel transition areas or just scattered rock. Bring some stinger hooks with the bigger minnows.

After the rain we had the river should have some flow so I would check the mouth of it out for sure.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
