Any recent reports?

4 posts in this topic

I noticed the weekend bite was slow to most. Im heading up Thursday and was seeing if anyone here has fished red at all this week? Will probably be heading out of Hillmas but any reports would be appreciated.

Yes the bite has been slow although anglers working for it are still picking up a few crappies and limits of walleye. Once this cold front, pressure who knows what hit these fish it has been a tough bite. I myself have been skunked three nights in a row on scouting missions. Way I look at it it has to only get better.

Fishing here on the South shore has been slow for most with a few crappies here and there, what I see here is way to many fishermen are heading out to the middle of the lake and passing up a lot of good fishing opportunities. There still are quite a few walleyes left unmolested in water just 10 feet or less here on the south shore, we just need a few individuals to break away from the mob mentality and start searching closer to shore.

Just My Opinion…

Spent two days in a house from John and Kelly. 1st day was tough but second day provided about 18 walleye with most out of the slot. I could mark some fish about 1 ft off the bottom but when you tried to move to them they would scare off. I caught my personal best Gator and will try to post pic. Fish were there, just tight lipped!!

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
