Pouting about the Pout

2 posts in this topic

Well after a long sick weekend (missed the pout fest)I finally made it out. I managed one 34" sturgeon, and no pout. I am wondering if the water level has something to do with the pout not coming up too far. The deepest water I could find was 11 ft. I don't think it's safe down by the oliver area, but if I had to bet I would say thats where the pout are. Anyone have any idea when we should stop trying?

Last couple years has been slow. Maybe just a downword cycle.

Its gotten worse as we have gone along. I think maybe they are on their way back down to the lake.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

      Anyone going out for the opener this weekend? I'll be too busy trout fishing, but I'm all booked up for the month of May on the Croix

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
