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!

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.

      Great review Rick G! I've always been all for Gas augers but it seems seems electric is better than I think it is. I could defiantly see myself making the move in the near future.
