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.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.

      Thanks for the reply.  Have had much time for research this year. Do you usually stay at pine tree cove?

      People who enjoy the North Shore and Lake Superior and want to help shape its future are encouraged to consider volunteering to serve on the Governor’s Council on Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.  This is a citizen advisory group that sets grant funding priorities, reviews grant applications and recommends projects to receive funding through the Coastal Program. All funded projects benefit Minnesota’s coastal area. The 15-member council is made up of three representatives each for Carlton, Cook, Lake and St Louis counties and three at-large positions that can be filled statewide. There are ten available seats on the council. The council meets about five times per year at various North Shore locations. Council members receive travel reimbursement and serve 60 to 70 hours per year while fulfilling a two or three year term. All adult Minnesotans are eligible to serve. Anyone interested can apply online at the Minnesota Secretary of State website or download a paper application. For more information about the Coastal Program’s work and service area, see the program webpage. Questions about the Coastal Program and application process can be directed to Amber Westerbur, Coastal Program manager, at 218-834-1445 or amber.westerbur@state.mn.us.
