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.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
