The Excursion- Year 3

5 posts in this topic

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.

Great job on the nice fish. I too like to travel to remote locations and try new waters. ;\) Will be making a trip there soon myself and your report got me even more excited...

Curious what kind of depths worked well for ya?

      Leech, my experience exactly, I hated the thing! I'm a Mister Twister Piranha guy, it's a little heavier duty than the green ones but never had trouble with the green ones either over the many years I've used them. I can use a filet knife on those rare occasions we do a shore lunch somewhere.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.
