Weeks Report (several pics)

1 post in this topic

Nick and I made it out to Chester Woods earlier this week for a quick couple hours in the morning. The fishing was tough before light, but picked up nicely about an hour after sunrise. A glow white Gill Pill (#12) took most of my fish. We never found any of the nicer crappies, but caught several smaller ones. We did manage some very nice bluegills and got a few decent bass too.

Largemouth caught on a Demon Jigging spoon & a nuggie

Last Friday Andy (crazyice) and I could be found out perch fishing on a lake in our area. Got'em up to 11.25". Waxies, minnow heads, and minnows (both fathead and crappie) took fish for us.

Did a combo trip at Lake Zumbro on Saturday with Cattin in the morning and pannies during the day. Lost one cat after about a 10 second drag peelin' run. Around 9:00 we unveiled the panfish arsenal for the remainder of the day. Eric and I put over 20 crappies on the ice that were over 10" along with a couple dozen nice gills. Many smaller fish to, with a few perch and bass in the mix. Grilled up some cheese brats for lunch. Good fun group of guys fishing together too. Ratso and Gill Pill w/waxie did the damage.

12" White Crappie

5 of us got skunked on Wed night searching for cats on the Zumbro. Got a little redemption on Thursday icing 2 cats, both @ 25". Nick had another one on for a 10 second battle. Caught a few pannies too.

1st cat through the ice this season!

I know I didn't provide many exact details on this particular report, but the bottom line is that the fish are really snappin' right now, so get out after'em.

Every fish mentioned above was CPR'd (Caught, Photographed, and Released).

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
