last open water trip

8 posts in this topic

I am going up for the last time to blow out the lines and pull the boat. I plan to fish sat and then pull the boat when I am done. I had a very good season and am looking forward to a little hard water fishing over the winter. I have a couple of spots on Kab that I am determined to try this winter. Just because no one fishes there doesn't mean there are not any fish there...right? The old lake is gonna be turning over soon if it hasn't already. if it has then perhaps I will just pull the boat and head home early. Well just my thoughts on a slow day at work.

Isn't the fishing supposed to be better after turnover? I heard the fish go in shallow and strap on the feed-bag to get ready for winter. Have I been misinformed?

I just have too much stuff to do before snow to fish any more. House to side, wood to split and stack, ect...

Wade I am now officially in fall work mode HEHE. Last weekend I got three keepers and threw back a few too big to keep. They told me that the fishing was really good wed and thurs but on sat I did just o.k. I split and stacked 3 long cord of oak on sunday and am looking at cleaning the chimney tonight. The house needs siding and there is about 400 yards of gravel I need to haul up at the lake. Wife wants me to do many smaller projects as well as making and putting up the trim around the windows in the living room. Won't be long and opener will be looking down my throat and I will be struggling with finishing up the list before summer. Oh I have to try to find some time to ice fish too??? tongue.gif

hehehe, a guy has to find time to fish, or he will loose his mind. At least I know I would.

I spent the weekend working on the siding. I want to go fishing, waaa waaa. I have to get the boat winterized and put away, maybe if it isn't sitting in the middle of the driveway hooked to the truck I wouldn't think about it so much. confused.gif

Seems like it was just a couple of weeks ago that I posted this thread. Now here I am, just as planned, struggling to finish up the winter projects before opener. I am already thinking about the boat and getting the lake place opened up. Already watching the pine air web cam once a day. never did get out on the kab ice to fish though...only snowmobiling.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
