Anyone Still Out Fishing??

20 posts in this topic

I was on the lake all by myself this afternoon and the weather was fantastic to be out. Water level is up after the rain we had last week which makes it much nicer to load/unload the rig. I probably backed in 6' less than I did just two weeks ago to load the boat. I was surprised that the docks are still in but I'm guessing it won't be long before they're pulled. I didn't have any luck and the lake appears to have turned over as it's very dirty now.

Today was the last run for the boat and it's time to winterize and put it away for the season. frown.gif It'll be a long wait for the hard water but I'm looking forward to it again. cool.gif

You weren't on Swan, were you? We seen a fella with a white Ford P.U. only truck in the lot besides ours.

We went down and looked at the dam in Hutch...looks like it took a couple of direct hits from the big naval guns!

Then we went over and fought the crowd at the bridge on Otter, not my type of deal, but one of the crew wanted to try it.

We wound up further down the Crow and got a bunch of crappies, but no walleyes.

Are these fish biting at the lakes, or the ones from the Crow River that glow in the dark and have a specific gravity of 13.6?

Yes! I know carverfishmn and have been fishing some of his spots. Last night I caught several walleyes with 18 being the biggest. Lots of "fat" crappies also. Water temp was 37.5 last night. I personally am longer getting them on Raps, but jigs are still producing. 1 more week of the aggressive bite with the warm weather coming up.

LPCRF...We were out for the last open water trip yesterday. We fished the Crow in a couple of spots with no success. The ice covered some of our go to spots and the spots we tried were just ho hum....nada.

We hit the Mississippi and tried a variety of stuff and wound up with one little rockbass that didn't even put up a fight...came in like a wet leaf....that was it, no runs, no hits, no errors!

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
