Roberds Report

7 posts in this topic

Was out from 3-6 today, measured 10-11 inches where we were. Didn't measure other areas but there were several cars and light trucks out. My buddy caught 1 9.5" crappie and a 16" eye. I came home empty handed. Marked quite a few fish early then tapered off fast around dark.

I was out in the new fish trap yukon, finally got set up about 4, kept 3 crappies & a 19" eye that came on a tip-up in 12' of water, with a JB-Gemneye, pink/glow. Crappies were on neon glow jigs, sweedish pimple, and a buckshot spoon with a minnow-head. Be back out early all day, come say hi, I'll have blue ice-armor in a fish trap yukon. Probly something on the grill 2 grin.gif

Just got home, shoulda brought the net 2day! Got out late & missed the morning rush, so we HAD 2 capitalize on the evening bite. Went serching 4 pannies during the mid-day, caught a few & 4sure got my exercise in! Set up WAY WAY WAY away from the main group in 9fow, & after chasing dogs that stole the "grill fair" for the day, we were set up. First bite was a tip-up on a Gemneye, and i missed it. Second was my buddy on a bobber which was an eye that he lost in the hole. Then down went my bobber, hooked it, then just like my buddies came off in the hole. Another eye. Then up went the flag again, 10ft of line & no minnow. So over all there are fish in the area, but I dont know what I have 2 do 2 get fish on the ice, frustrating day, espeacially when you know that your loosing an eater almost every time. Oh 4got 2 mention, had a BIG red bar move up on a Buckshot, and BANG! A 36" slimeball, which of course got my Buckshot in the hole mad.gifblush.gif

Sounds like you had a fun but tough to lose them at the hole like that.

Any luck out there lately, tried about a week ago, got one eye, but it was pretty slow. I think I might give it a try tomorrow.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.
