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.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
