My girls find the eye's!

12 posts in this topic

Good night out for a dad and his girls. Mine are 10 (Kennedy) and 5 3/4 (Madison). And since they love to eat walleye, I love to teach them how to catch them. Well they succeded tonight! We got lines wet at 6:05pm and by 6:27 had two in the bucket! We stayed until 8:53, that is when we put the 6th keeper in the pail! They took plenty of pictures and already said that we get to eat them tomrrow night!!! So we will chow tomorrow! Got some cute pics so I thought I would share, plus they think it's cool to see themselves on the puter!

So here they are!

CC, would those be from the same spot we fished a couple weeks ago????

It's awesome having kiddos that want "Quality Time." Translation- time spent with dad in the fish house.

Thanks guy's for the comments, the girls will love them this evening when I show them!

Same place Boiler, just different spot. Did the old moveruski a couple days ago and found them again!!!

What's your plan for the weekend Boiler? I am thinking I have a hunger for some perchy perch... I have a feeling I am going to try to find some.

Or maybe Perchpounder would be so kind as to getting us on some gobblin gills!!!!

TO, have a hunger for some 6foot mud bottom eyes? Let me treat you some day to the fun of "no structure" pothole walleyes of the DEEP SOUTH... Minnesota that is.

You know I do but not sure when I can make the time. I'm traveling up north for about a week Friday morning and then I'll be scouting and guiding around Le Sueur until after the first of the year. And then it's Otter Run time!

Thanks for thinking of me.

Nice eyes! It looks like those fish came from the same place we went last friday night we ended up +9 all from 16-18" with several smaller fish released. I can put you on gills and perch for the up coming weekend but I cant make them bite when you get there. With the up coming 4 day weekend im hoping to make a perch run somewhere but its really hard leaving some of the most aggressive and abundant gills ive ever fished.

The last I heard Louisa was pretty slow but there were still some fish biting which is somewhat puzzling considering the pounding it took last winter.

Yup, it's hit and miss. A dude can go there, spend all day, and catch a skunk or 15 nice perch. Luck of the draw kind of thing. Yes, it took a real whollopin last winter.

I can't go too far from home or work so it's either that or maybe I'll try Timber lake or Cottonwood. I don't know yet.

      Thank you very much Outy22!

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.
