The Excursion- Year 3

Recommended Posts

KJB

I posted a lenghthy message earlier this week that dissappeared after the update- but here are pictures from the trip.

To summarize, these three were the largest, 10#, 7# and 6#- we fished from 12/29 till 1/2 our of Warroad and snowmobiled to many out of the way places- trips ranges from 12 miles to 25 one way so we covered some group. Two days were excellent and two so so, but we explored some new areas- one of which was Knight's reef area and I would like to have a general discussion with some, offline is fine, on this area. Not your spots, just general questions on the area. We did get the 7#'er there. Lures changed each day but go devils in red glow and gold were the standard fare. The Widetrack special spoon did well and also the 7# was on a chubby darter, the 6# on the soft plastic jigging lure, like a rapala, from Storm- caught a lot on that one day when all they would hit was a deadstick. Weather was not pleasant as we had -9 and -13 on consecutive mornings, so outside fishing was limited, but as I stated, the fishing was still good. Hope this works on the pictures.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
