Fishing Report 1/13-14

4 posts in this topic

The river was moving pretty fast to clear 3 1/2 inches

of rain that fell last week so it was tougher there, lots

of grass and junk but some fish too.

The Gaps were ok but not what they had been before the

rains. We cruised the Morris Point Gap and never marked

a school of bait fish, the water in the gaps was pretty

muddy. Again, still some fish but it slowed way down from

the 100 fish days the week before.

The weather was great so we went to some mid lake spots and

while still no great numbers we caught several BIG fish on

the upper end of the slot so the weekend was still a very

good one. It was amazing how much CatMan knows

when it comes to fishing in general.

He showed me some new ways to fish that put more

walleye in the boat, he's awsome.

The fall bite is still picking up steam, when all this

excess water flushes through, you can bet the fish will

be back on the feed big time. I can just barely wait for

this coming weekend

We had what must have been 3/4 ounce that still swung back

pretty far. contact with the bottom was not a problem but

it wasnt close to verticle.

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
