Sugar Report 1/26

12 posts in this topic

Hit sugar today. Fished the drop offs of reed island. Started the day with a dead vexilar battery. So I punched a bunch of holes while waiting for my dad to show with his vex. Every one of my holes ended up being in 4' of water or less. Was a good way to kill time anyway. Finally started fishing about an hour after being on the ice. Couldn't catch anything but tiny perch. My guess is the small airplane that kept taking off and landing on the ice over and over again spooked the fish mad.gif. Will hit cedar tomorrow, hopefully I will do better there.

Sorry to hear about that. I heard the airplane flying overhead as well. That sucks when he buzzes over.

Can't condem a guy for enjoing his form of recreation as long as he's not violating any laws. There's a lot of interests out there and only one great outdoors. Lets all enjoy it and give something back to nature (the great outdoors) each year.

Very true. I do know a guy that has one, and he gave up fishing because he loves it so much!

Fished Sugar on Sunday. The plane's were out there. I know the guys. And NO, it does not scare the fish. Had a Muskie down the hole when he Buzzed the fishhouse. He didn't even flinch.

Anyways- seen alot of muskies on Grass Island during the day. Northerns were staying in deeper water, hitting sucker minnows in 30 FOW. Didn't seen any Muskies after 4 o'clock, then the pike moved up to the shallows just a little after 4. They were hitting sucker minnows.

Are reed and weed island the same location? As in the point around the corner from the north access?

Its not Reed Island or weed Island. "Grass island" separates the main lake from the north bay. It starts at Bell Point. The point with Bell on it, and it goes to the reed bed on the north end. Hope this helps.

I was out on one of the humps of the main lake on Sunday. Tons of 6" and smaller perch on the tops. Two tip up pike in 20 FOW. Gonna hit a different spot tomorrow for some bigger fish.

      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.

      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

      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.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
