...yee ole jig and minnow...

2 posts in this topic

..canoes, packs and poles in tow, we made are way into entry point #30 and up the chain of lakes that harbor the tasty 'eyes' we were bent on harvesting.....

...we air packed a pile of minnows with us and set up a base camp well into the b.w.w.c.a.... the three days of fishin that followed was spectacular! Yellow or green hair jigs tipped with a minnow provided non-stop action...12 fow seemed to be the magic depth....enjoyed a few meals of fresh fish and tossed more than we can count back into the drink to be caught another time....the weather was unusual; rain, drizzle, misty followed by more rain all in a warm weather pattern...never saw the convinced global warming a reality....hooked a few big ones, but nearly all the fish were in that 15" to 19" range...If one could reach these area's with boat and motor, it would not be long before they would be fished it is, it is pure joy to experience a walleye feeding frenzy that many claim can only be had in canada...we generally go through an outfitter, but this time brought our own canoes and parked at the public lot...thanks to the yo-ho who siphoned off our gas while we were out( and every other vehicle there) it confirms that we will not be judged by what we have, but by what we have given...and we hope our gas gets you to where you are going...(:

Thanks for the report.

Ya a lot of low lifes stealing and whatever else in them areas now. Seeing more and more kids from these areas at work for just what your talking about and stealing from cabins. If anyone has a cabin take anything of worth or that you care about home when you lock up for winter!

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.
