Minnetonka Pannie Report

3 posts in this topic

Fished Phelps Bay from about 6:30 - 9:30 last night. Had a blast. Perfect night, nice temps, no wind. We drilled 2 holes in 30 feet and immediately marked fish. We were marking fish consistently for all 3 hours, never needed to drill more holes.

Son used the flasher, and had a small Swedish Pimple on his line tipped with a waxie. I was fishing blind with a 1/32 black Ratso.

I had "one of those nights" where my line got tangled, and another time broke, and a third time lost a jig, so it seemed I spent half my time re-rigging. Son quietly caught a number of fish while I was fixing my messes. Once I got my tangles undone I managed to catch a few fish, but he cleaned my clock. Overall we caught about 20 fish, kept 7 for beakfast today, but he caught more fish and bigger fish than I did tonight. But I was fishing with my son, so who's complaining? \:\)

Here's a picture of him with a nice 10"er, biggest fish of the night.

That smile says it all Blackdog!! My son is 11yr and is deffinetly my fishing buddy. Love going out and getting the kids some action. Sounds like my reports when I take him out, they usually out fish the old guys but thats the way I like it. I think I am heading out to Tonka tomorrow with some buddies and I'm sure my son will be right there with us. Nice report

Nice Report, Great pic!, Good to see the kids getting out, I can't wait till my son is a little older and can sit still long enough to cross some eyes.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
