Longville area action?

9 posts in this topic

Going to head out this weekend with at least one brother in law. Normally we hit ML as it is central to where people live but the reports from there are so slow that we are looking else where.

Has there been any action on Little Boy or Woman for walleyes or perch? Maybe Wabado for crappies? We are not picky. My brother in law claims his wife caught him fishing in the toilet bowl so it is time to get out on the ice!

If the shacks are still on wabedo,thats were I would go.If not familiar with the area,do a drive by some of the lakes.Sometimes you can catch the same amount in the toilet.

As I started this topic I thought I should report back although it might not be best forum location.

We ended up stopping at Bay Lake instead of heading the rest of the way to Longville area. Fishing was very slow during the day with a couple of bass, tiny northerns and one perch. Mid afternoon we picked up one crappie in deep water so we all moved out there and watched our bobbers do nothing for a couple of hours. We spent a lot of time discussing a move to a different lake but could not come up with an option that motivated us. Moved back in shallower about 4pm, picked up a couple more northerns and 1 more bass. Then at about 5:30 the crappies suddenly appeared and action was very fast for about an hour and then done. We ended up with 20 crappies for three guys with good to very good sizes and only one too small. All in all alot better day than fishing in the toilet bowl!

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
