I'm on call so I can't stray too far from home. With that said, I'm thinking about trying Bloody for some crappies.

I honestly don't know. Last weekend I was on URL. The weekend before that was the Sarah Saturday get together. The weekend before that was the Lake Francis get together. Sooooooooo, I haven't been around much.

I've heard walleyes are biting on the north side of Shetek. However, not a day goes by that I don't hear walleyes are biting on the north side of Shetek so take it for what it's worth. I'm only guessing there are about a zillion fish houses out there.

Yeah I have fished Shetek alot this winter the north end the south end and loon. All the spots I have fished have produced the same for the most part, with Loon probably the best so far.

I will give bloody a try though, Is everyone driving on bloody?

Dude, I've learned there's a rope tied to the end of my otter. That particular rope loops real well around the trailer hitch.

Saturday I think I'm on bloody. Sunday I have no clue.

I wasn't serious, I was trying to stay vertical. long story.

You guys going where I think you're going? I have a old childhood friend of mine coming down that weekend for fishing. However, it's perm house cuz wife is coming with. If it's where I thing you are going it's a looooooong drive with my not road worthy fish house.

Iffin it's somewhere closer to my place, shetek, sarah, bloody, fox, grahm, lime........count me in. If it's where we went that one place that one time, TO's gonna have to live without Klan Boilerguy. Sorry TO, I know you'll miss me. Get over it dude. grin.gif

Too bad you're on call this weekend there are rumors floating around that the gills are on bite! and I may just have to go alone.

Can we make that the 2nd? I've got a super bowl party/poker tournament that starts @ 1 in Sioux Falls?

While we're commenting avatars Muc why are you wearing shorts in January? don't you know its cold outside?

Chad,

Let me know if this is an option:

Come down early Saturday, February 2, fish, stay over at your place (or somewhere) and then fish a half-day on Sunday, February 3 and then I'll head home.

Thanks.

Let me check the boss's schedule, but sounds ok with me. I also have to check on my new fish house done date, I may need to pick it up on the weekend if Friday doesn't work for them. Regardless, we can make it work I am sure.

Well, you let me know what works and we'll go from there. I just need to be back to Le Sueur by 4:00 pm on that Sunday, so I thought it'd be easiest to come down and fish Saturday and at least the morning on Sunday.

Chris, once again you did a ton better than I did.

Besides having stuff to do around the house, having the flu, and just life..I still managed to get out a bit today. I went to Lime Lake right by my place. A couple perch and a couple crappie, that's it.

You da man.

Too bad you were on call this weekend. Today would have been a good learning day. They were on fire first thing this morning. I had six of those in the first 20 minutes. and missed four others not too long after that. I am really liking not having anything to keep me off the ice this year thats for sure.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

    • Walleye #1
        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.  
    • Walleye #1
      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
