Atta boy! You maybe could post your pic over in the panfish forum under the weather related post from earlier today.It might give the folks the idea that cold weather conditions are not a lost cause situation, for catching the fish.I usually don't visit here too often,but the reason I was in this forum was I was looking for anything recent on Big Stone Lake.

TOO COLD?!?!? I ended up with 3 eyes and 2 cats just before dark. Catfish are a hoot to catch through the ice, gotta love those whiskers!

These must have come from a SD lake because our limit of crappies in MN is 10. Nice batch of fish. What's the length of the largest crappie?

Perchpounder is the master of pannies down here. He has so many spots people think he is a leopard. Chris, I figured with the cold and the swap meet in SF you would have stayed home this weekend. guess I was wrong. nice catch.

Nice fish Perchpounder!!!

Too cold?? No way. I just got back from URL. It was a bit chilly, but never too cold.

By the way Chris, I have your sign and bait puck. Next time we hook up on the ice I'll return them.

When did the limit drop to 10? jk. Yeah they were caught in IA but the IGL maybe not? those are just the ones I kept we had 43 total the biggest one kept was 13.5. It bit so high in the column it hit the ice when I set the hook. Who said the fish move deeper in the middle of winter? those were caught in less than 6' of water and no live bait was needed. Im not too worried BG I know where it's at I forgot about it until friday when I was getting my stuff ready. It was a little slower today we only ended up with around 30 in about 3 hours I think, but man did they get picky. Sorry no camera today maybe next week.

BG I could have used you there saturday that crappie would have made another nice avatar no? Oh well maybe next time.

Perchpounder, you're a confusing guy. Your location shows SD and MN and you go to IA to catch your fish. Evidentally, you know what you're doing.

Trust me im no master but I can get it done on occaision. the guys I fish with down there will make me look silly about 70% of the time. I really like the new camera I just wish I would have had more gas in my auger so I could have stayed ahead of the fish I could see on it.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
    • curt quesnell
      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
    • curt quesnell
      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos
    • certified jumbo
      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.
