9/27 Fishing Report

2 posts in this topic

Went fishing Thursday from 10:30am-6:00pm. Launched at Wheelers Point and headed out towards the Lighthouse Gap. Stopped in the Gap and fished for about 15 minutes, with just a wee walleye to show for it, so we decided to head out to where all the boat were just outside the gap in the lake.

Started fishing in 20'-21' of water. After about 5 minutes, we started catching fish. As Noon rolled around and we had 5 Walleye's a couple nice Sauger's in the livewell and a few perch measuring 12"-13". Fishing slowed a little bit, so we moved a bit further out in the lake and anchored in about 22'-23' of water. Again almost right away, we started catching fish, but most of these were Saugers, with a few eye's mixed in. Caught alot of small ones, but was still fun.

Around 3:00pm, we decided to go try the river since the wind was picking up, and I was sick of bobbing around out there anyways.

Went up river and fished in 18'-19' of water, and again after only a few minutes, we started catching fish. Stayed anchored in the same spot till we left, caught a bunch of fish, lots of small ones, some nicer fish, a small sturgeon, a northern, and a couple more perch. We eventually ran out of bait and had to call it a day, but we finished up one short of our limit on Sauger's and walleye's and had some dandy perch top go along with them.

We didn't keep a Walleye under 16" and our biggest Eye was just under 19.5". The biggest Sauger was a fat 16-17"er and the smallest was around 14".

Over all it was a great trip, except for the wind, the wether was nice too. The only thing I would have done differently, is bought more bait. We bought 2 scoops, (approx 4 dozen) live shiners, and ran out pretty quick with two of us fishing.

Well, That's my report. Talk to ya'll later.

Thanks for the report. I'm heading up tonight for the weekend. Doesn't look like a good weekend with high winds predicted. Nice to see you caught some fish in the river as well.

      I see on the cam that Joe's gate is open, but the access is pretty trashed with cones out front. Is it still driveable?

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.
