Hail the 10 incher ! (Hitman, you'll like :) )

7 posts in this topic

Hey all, I went to Pelican last night and the fish were really biting! Problem is, they were all shorts (like in the picture below). I got about 5 of these guys to the boat and literally missed 10 others due to short hits. The minnow tail would be all mangled on the short hits... 19 ft. of water on the edges with a green and chartreuse jig and a fairly small fathead. All hail the ten incher (as you can see in my new avatar, my specialty is the tiny fish nowadays!!)!!

Oh yeah, forgot to mention - it was a beautiful night all while I was fishing from about 6PM to 9:30PM. Then at about 9:30 that stiff Northwesterly picked up and it was Big Bad Pelican again! My old friend! It was so wavy at the boat launch, I barely was able to load er up and high tail it back to Fargo! Oh well, fun times... crazy.gifconfused.gifgrin.gif

Hey, 10 inchers, or ten pounds, you can't beat catchin walleyes in the Fall! That's what Fall is about: eatin candy, playing/watching a little football and catchin eyes!!

My wife does that to me all of the time. She actually puts things "away" and does not tell me where she put them. Now don't get me wrong I like the help and she is a sweetie -- but tell me where you put my dog collar zapper so I can go pheasant hunting!

lol.

      Sorry, been offline for a while. Yes you can STILL drive out there if you're brave. I've seen people do it last night and they are probably still driving out there today. I'm going to go check in a bit, fishing has been pretty stellar as of late.

      2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast. On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase. Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
