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.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
