Saturday Report (Pics)

13 posts in this topic

Went out of Hunters Point around noon Saturday. Wanted to go in the morning but the -20 kept me in bed awhile longer. My buddy and I took a sled to Lakeside Reef and where fishing around 1pm. Fished from 1pm to 5:30pm and iced 12 walleyes and missed about 4 others. Took home 6 fish from 14"-19". Largest being 26". Two at 22" and three were under 12". Ice was 7"-9" and the snowmobile was the way to go. Here are the pics:

19"

26"

All fish were caught jigging with gold spoons and the 26" was caught dead sticking with plain hook and minnow.

Nice Fish! I can't wait to put the permanent out in a couple weeks! If I had a snomobile I would be out already, not gonna pull the sled that far in the snow. Excellent pics.

I knew I should have gone out of the East shore like I usually do. I picked up a couple nice fat fish off of Malone island saturday but not near as many as you guys did. The rest of my fishing will be done out of Appledorns and Hunter's Point this year. I may invest in a snowmobile soon also, dragging through that snow is grueling. Nice fish guys.

We were just off of Lakeside Reef in 21ft. I had on a gold buckshot rattle spoon with a minnow head and my buddy had a gold forage minnow with minnow head. We were jigging about 6 inches to a foot off bottom, fish would not smack it, you had to jig them up about a foot to get them to bite. For our dead stick I had a red hook and fathead which produced nothing and my buddy had plain hook and fathead which got one fish, the 26". Both were a foot off the bottom. Would have used golden shiners but from the time I got my bait at Prince to the time we were fishing the bag was frozen solid and all were dead. shocked.gif Might be heading up again during the week, we will see.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
