fishing report 2/6 - 2/10

3 posts in this topic

We stayed at nodaks, They have some good roads for the south end of the lake. Roger did get a road out to Ravens. We fished the center bar area and found some great jumbos. We used buckshots and pimples with minnow heads. We also set out a tip up set at three feet off the bottom with the biggest fat head you could find and caught most of the 11+ inchers off that. Fish were in all depths but most jumbos were caught in 28 to 32 fow. We caught 6 perch shy of our possesion limit for two guys. All perch kept were 10+ inchers. At 4:00 we would set up on top of a little hump about one mile north of center bar for walleye. The bite went from 5 to 6. We fished it thur and fri night and caught around 15 per night. Alot little 11 to 13 inchers. But we did get a good limit of 15 to 16.5 inchers. No big ones. The best thing about it was there wasnt anybody within at least one mile from us at both spots and there were no holes drilled were we fished. Did not fish sat or sun because of the weather but didnt really need to. Got one off those lake chips for the gps, simply awesome.

Welcome to FM and thanks for the report. I'm in a group of guys that goes out of Nodak every year, it's about 2 weeks to go until our trip this year. It's always a trip we look forward to!

Glad to hear you guys did good. I was up there on the 25/26th, and it was about the worst I did in the last 10 years. I couldn't buy a bite, but there was no one around to pay anyway. The road out of Nodaks had just been plowed to Center Bar, and I tried that and a few other spur roads he plowed. Nothing at anyplace I tried. I am heading up again this weekend 15-17, and will be trying both URL and Winnie. Hopefully the weather will co-operate.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
