Thanks to WOODMAN SCOTT HANSON

4 posts in this topic

This post is mainly to thank SCOTT HANSON (woodman) He went completely out of his way to show us some spots up in Bemidji for the SPECIAL YOUTH HUNT. He was even nice enough to show me to his own stand and allowed me to hunt it. I ended up setting up somewhere else so i wouldnt burn out his spot. He showed us exactly where to set up, showed us where the trails were and was an over all nice person.

We did not end up harvesting anything, but we did see a bunch of deer. Again my Brother, Father and I are extremely grateful that there are still people out there that would go out of their way to help someone out. We enjoyed the drive, the scenery, the land , the wildlife. Overall it was a great great great time.

Some other people from the forum also offered to help and i want to thank them too. I forget their screen names off the top of my head but they know who they are.

thanks,

david

`I had a class at Bemidji state in which Woodman was also a student. Although I only knew him for a short time, it was obvious that he is a very special person that will leave us with more than he has taken.

Are you guys for real, I worked with "Woodman" for 2 years and he was/still is an absolute...Great guy!! Hard pressed to find a much nicer guy that will go out of his way to help people, in any manner, not just the outdoors! So to say I wasn't surprised when reading this post is an understatement...Keep it up Scott and I'll still get up to fish with ya this winter!!

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

      Blue_Healer (Shouldn't that be heeler, not healer? http://www.dogster.com/dog-breeds/Blue_Heeler ) "Thanks for the advice. Nobody else would help."   Me: "You're welcome. Did you check the websites I referenced? Did you stop at any boat dealers? "

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
