A weekend went by, and not to many reports? The fishing must be really good or really bad? confused.gif

Was up this afternoon for the maiden voyage of the season with my 9 year old son, we headed out near Hennepin Island.

We were on a sled and didn't see or run across any slush thank god. We had 10-11" of great solid ice.

Fished from 1-5 and caught 3 nice perch, tons of lookers and not much for takers, threw everything but the kitchen sink at them.

Not much action up there today that I could see.

Next time try fishing lures. I have never had too much luck with kitchen appliances. Caught one on a fork once, the waiter said it was sushi.

When you have a 9 year old who is always on the go with you, you will learn to be creative and do whatever it takes to try and get them to bite!

Seems to be the concensus on the fishing lately, lots of lookers and few takers.

I also fished the SE corner. I did throw the kitchen sink at them - no 'eyes, but a few perch.

I fished north end of grassy- nothin.

Fished near Malone - a few perch, no eaters.

Fished north end of Popes reef - more small perch.

And finally, the graveyard - Nothin.

There were people sorting through a lot of small perch and catching some keepers right in front of Anglers Paradise. About 10-1.

Se corner real slow IMO.

Good Luck!

I was out on the flats today, had a total of 2 bites. Luckily pulled both up. 26" and 22.5" eyes. Really slow, but those fish made it worth it. Hope to get up again in the coming days to try and catch them again. Good luck this weekend.

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
