My week on the lake 11/2-11/8 was a great week

14 posts in this topic

Ok guys here how it went on my yearly trip up in the fall for night trolling. First night out did really well on jointed raps in the perch color along with firetiger not fast but man some nice fish caught 12 but was out all night long biggest was 29. 11/2 did about the same area as the night befor weeds inside outside over the middle of them and wasnt going so good till about 11pm only had 2 fish up till then all the sudden not sure what caused it but in the next 2 and a half hours 21 fish between 2 of us again all big fish with the biggest at 28 same 2 colors as the night befor. Sunday and monday night we didnt make it out the ladys wanted to gamble and have some fun so of course we went and the wind was to much to handle for me. The rest of my time on the pond was great caught fish every night some big some small and even a few northern and muskies throwin in the mix.We only fished the west side and up north to around red door but most of are time was out in front of the casino since we were staying there.Like mentioned befor all most every fish we caught was on jointed raps in the 2 colors mentioned but had luck on others but not near as much. Out of the whole trip biggest walleye was a fat 32inch yes i said 32inch 10.2 eye wich i will get that picture up as soon as i can figure how to do it. No sorry wasnt me who caught it was my buddy and yes folks he kept it took it in and is havin it mounted great looking fish.So yes there are fish to be caught but i will say this if you go out there you best have warm clothes and some good boots or be cold in less the 2 hours and headin in. Was a great trip and ill see you on the ice this winter. Oh by the way we went to the Neil Young concert on the way back thursday night and to tell you the truth he sucked big time he would be better off not touring no more .

Awesome report! Sounds like matching the hatch was getting it done. The stick baits have been off for us the last week. Cograts on that 32 inch monster.

Rodmaker we used mainly #7 #5 and #4 shallow raps jointed are average speed wich seem to be the ticket this trip was from 0.7 - 1.3 anything faster or slower didnt seem to work at all. We did get some nice fish over the time we fished wich was mostly from about 8pm - 3or4 in the morning could say we are die hards LOL. Any ways great trip was had by us and the ladys.

Where is he going to get the fish mounted. Matt up at Artistic Anglers does skin mounts as well. As far as I'm concerned, he's the best.

Thanks for the nice replys guys and i do believe that he is havin the fish mounted by Pat Mason he is really good at skin mounts he is out of Northfield i do believe. I had my 12.6 walleye 33 inches that was caught on lake of the woods done by him in 98 looks great . Till this day nothing over 10 lbs since for me.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!

      maybe he didn't see the question yet? google is your friend. this one sounds like its for vets that are at the VA.  not sure. Check out Take a Vet Fishing online.  couple events coming up. not by Duluth tho.
