Plantagenet and MEA

6 posts in this topic

Gonna be up this week during the MEA break to take my 10 yr old out fishing. Wondering what the eye's might me bitin', depths, etc.. You don't need to give me your secret spot, just a little direction for bait. I'll find out if your lyin to me because I'll get a report from Bluewater too cool.gif Thanks for the help. I've never fished in the fall and am afraid of the cold winds and my son wanting to quit early.

Well you should do good but beware the duck hunters...

I would start at the north end hump work your way around the from 15'-20' they should be there.

We netted a 19 and 24 pound Muskie last MEA, other than those two not much action but lots of guys were bringing in fish. That was then though. Good luck, have a feeling we'll try it again this weekend. Bundle Up!

Thanks for reminder on the duck hunters. I suppose wind will play a factor in where I go. Any advice on color? Minnow type?

Here's another question, what's with the minnows in a bag at the bait stores. I can't remember the name, but I think they have "grub" in the name. I look at them, but wonder why you wouldn't just use the real deal? Any insight would be appreciated.

15' - 20' is probably the ticket, but don't be afraid to go a little deeper or shallower regardless of the light and time of day. Found a nice school of them out their last fall in the shallows and a few times they were fairly deep. If it's not too windy, you may see a 16' johnboat out there getting pulled around by a fat creek chub.

kwiggy, don't know if you're a hunter, but you could do well walking together in the woods looking for grouse. If he's ten he's two years away from firearms safety, what a great way to get him excited to hunt! Plntagenet has some good grouse land around it; a friend of mine did really well a week ago.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
