bmc (Can we change our plans to Thursday?)

8 posts in this topic

Hey Brian,

I was wondering if we could change are plans from Wednesday to Thursday. I could even come up your way Wednesday night so we could get out first thing in the morning.

Post a reply or give me a call later. What ever works for you. I'm at work today if my cell doesn't pick up your call.

Hey Tom,

I may have to head to Cities Thurs. or Friday for work. I should know Monday and will give you a call when I know for sure. Still haven't had a chance to get out yet. Tuesday will be my first day on the ice. How much snow did you get, I'd say 6-8" here in D.R.

Brian,

I'll be at the Fire hall on Monday. I'm not sure if I gave you that number. If you have it you can call me there anytime before 9:00pm. If not leave a message on my cell and I'll get back to you.

I'll talk to you about what happened with Wednesday then. As far a snow goes I'm guessing we got about 12 inches or so.

I'll talk to you soon!!

I'll post up a report Lisa as "poor" BD110 is probably trying to catch a few winks as he's fished at least 5 days this week! Poor guy! grin.gif We hit the SW side of the lake, out in front of where the Miss. comes in. We set up in about 8 fow around 9:30 am and fished till about 4 pm. We ended up with our 6 northerns 2 just under 30" and 4 in the 25" range give or take an inch. All caught on tipups with dead smelt and 1 on a live golden shiner. We also caught some perch in the area, but nothing worth bringing home. The DNR creel survey guy said we had the best luck out of anybody that was in that area. About 8" of ice and a little slush where we drilled our holes. About 8-10" of snow on top so going was tough w/ an ATV pulling a trailer, but we just pulled Tom's Otter house out and didn't have a problem. Also there was a pressure ridge forming about 100-200 yds out from shore, running north and south.

As always Tom, it was a great trip and thank god we got our pizza at Blueberry Bowl before they ran out of gas!!! grin.gif

Brian,

That was a great report and you are correct I'm heading out the door in 30 min. for day number 5 on the ice. It's a tough job but someone has to do it. I'll be looking forward to taking the day off tomorrow.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
