Empty trapline

11 posts in this topic

Checked the trapline again this morning and still nothing. Traps have been out for a week now. Triggers were all adjusted perfect, bait was fresh, locations are ideal, the weather is cold. My only conclusion: the mice at work are getting smarter over the years!!

I should start doing that also, this darn warm weather is a SIN. below freezing for the first time in a few days again today, however we are suppose to get 6 inches of snow tomorrow and then warm up to mid 30's for a few days again. I may never get to the yukon if this crap keeps up.

I think the magnetic fields up there close to the north pole have affected your reasoning ability Fish. You have been gone so long your becoming irrational. Maybe you need to come back to MN and have a few pheasant and wild rice dinners, and watch a football game. 15 below just means more work, trying to keep the house warm. I burn lots of firewood when we get below zero. No, I'm just spoofin ya, I hope you get what you wish for, then maybe we'll get the weather we are supposed to get.

Last year I ended up with about a dozen mice, nothing so far this year despite the cold weather. Always fun to watch the ladies at work squirm when I bring a dead one into the office! Funny, they hate them and a single mouse turd in the building drives them nuts but they still don't like to see them dead.

I had a major invasion this fall at our house, I think I finished up at 5..........found a gap outside in the garage where I think they were getting in. needless to say, my pregnant wife was not happy.........caught most of them while I was out of town hunting on the weekends grin.gif

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip. Cliff & Casey are regular contributors here and members of the Lake Vermilion Guides League.  https://lakevermilionguidesleague.com/.    Good Luck!

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
