Recommended Posts

weasel069

I caught this toothy critter while crappy fishing on knife lake saturday the 29th. 38" 15 lb on 4 lb line. I was hopping for a nice walleye at the end of my line but when I got the first look at him down my hole I really got excited cuz this is my largest slimer Ive ever gotten!!!

Nice fish. You did let her go? Anything else biting? Anyone driving out? We are heading up Sunday.

weasel: nice gator especially on 4# line. From the backdrop in your picture I would say you are standing out in front of my cabin. Perhaps see you there soon. Bill

Bill, better be careful dangling your toes in the water off your dock! The 24"-36" release slot on northerns is starting to pay off. I've noticed the average size has increased.

If you're on the ice this weekend Bill swing over for a report.

WaveyDavey: You got that right on the Norts, nice to see those big girls around. Not sure if I'm going up this weekend headed to LOW on Tuesday so have some things to do prior to the trip. Sounds like some cooler weather headed in, should firm things up again real nice.

Was on Mille Lacs last weekend, finally got the perm out, not where we want to be but at least its on the ice.

How's the hand? Was the last surgery a success? Also how did you do on your Sept LOW trip, haven't talked to you since then. Bill

If you want to shoot any info my way use my email wjt917@live.com

Bill, I'll fill you in on things next time I see you rather than hijack this post. Was on Knife this past weekend. Ice conditions have improved greatly. Slush is now frozen solid making travel and set up a lot easier. 13" of ice where I was. Normally I would fish the contest on the 19th but the deep freeze heading our way may keep me away this year.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
