Thinking about going out to Bald Eagle this Saturday. Anybody been out towards Rocky Ridge yet?

Was there Tuesday and caught a lot of eyes but none more than 12 inches.

You may want to repost this in the Metro forum. There should be a couple recent Bald Eagle reports in the Metro forum.

Yeps, I was there very early this morning. I caught a lot of dinger eyes... No size to them, but the bite was consistent.

What part of the lake is rocky ridge, I've never heard of that? I can't even find it on the map.

rocky ridge is north of the island where the lake starts to narrow. there is a small bay behind it. in the summer there are bouys that extend from the point. thats rocky ridge.

Bald Eagle only has two good areas for walleyes, out of that WHOLE ENTIRE lake... Rocky Ridge is one of them..

Hope people don't keep them little eyes. That is a good chunk of the future fishery. Predation alone will wipe out a sizeable percent of them and when people start keeping a limit of them that certainly doesn't help. NOT SAYING everyone out there is keeping them, but i'm sure some are.

Iknow there easy to catch but also just as easy to put back down the hole!

Only a complete dink would be keeping 8-10 inch walleys. Then again there are more horses arses than there are horses in the world.

Thats odd I rarely catch dink 'eyes on Bald Eagle. I dont fish the shanty towns or traditional spots though.

Yeah I usually do pretty well on Bald Eagle also. I don't fish with the crowds but the three times I have been there this year so far the biggest I have caught is about 14 inches.

Hey guys, I don't assume everyone keeps the dinks but some do i'm sure. Personally i'd rather leave the crowds and find a nice quiet spot out there. Any recent info on ice?

Probably gonna slow down a bit after this nasty weather.

Good Luck, ole

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
