One last day of fishing before deployment.

4 posts in this topic

I have a friend who is a marine and will be deploying to Iraq in a week. I am going to get him out on a lake one more time before he leaves. The problem is that I have not had a chance to get out on any of the metro lakes beacuse I am so buisy with work. Id realy like to get into some fish. Id like to have him catch some nice crappies, bluegills. Maybe have a shot at a walleye or two. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to go, within perhaps 15 miles of plymouth. I had heard that pelican was a good lake but I have no clue where to begin.I have also heard about beebee.

you can email me at chad0050@d.umn.edu so that you dont have to put it here for all eyes to see.

thanks, I realy appreciate any help I can get, and Im sure my friend would too.

Tonka is always a good bet. I dont know about the panfish out there lately, but i have yet to be skunked for walleye. just follow the houses in known walleye water and you will probably get one. make sure your out there for the dusk bite. I usually try to get out by 3pm at the latest. if you do get out earlier bring some suckers for a few northerns, otherwise mostly shiners and some fathead bites

could always try medicine. i think your location said something about plymouth and that should be close for you.

Tonka is always a good bet. Follow the crowds and you will usually be on fish. Tell your buddy thanks and we are all very thankful for him serving our great country. Good luck.

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!

      Friday night until about 9:00 they were aggressive as heck, and jigging worked very well.  It seemed like after that they didn't want much to do with jigging, and the set lines were key.
