"Easy" bite?

10 posts in this topic

Anyone know of a spot for an easy bite? I'm taking my brother out tomorrow and we're just doing some C&R and want to know what has been pretty "hot." Duck has been decent in the past, is that still the case? Just looking for some pannies to keep us busy for a few hours before the enevitable return to hormonal women \:\) Any help would be appreciated!!

I wish there were such a thing as an easy bite! \:\/

In all seriousness, if you had decent success on Duck, I'd go back there. We're kind of going through the "mid-winter duldrums" right now IMO and any decent bite would be worth staying after.

Good luck!

The SE end of Clear Lake in Waseca is worth a look.

I agree on the Duck recommendation - the bite was still good on Saturday. Caught quite a few crappie in 17 feet of water by dropping a crappie minnow on a glow jig down about three or feet under the ice. Plenty of sunnies right on the bottom as well.

Right under the ice? Imagine that. Way to go!

East bay on Madison lake is always worth checking,with all those weeds back there dead or alive. Might be a bit early yet, but when they are there its HOT!!

Went out to Duck last night, we were quite a ways from the "village" and had pretty slow bites- my brother outfished me with black 20# test... it was like fishing with a clothesline!! Ended up catching 8 total, a tiny perch, 2 sunnies and the rest crappies, considering heading out there again and fishing a little deeper, but Madison crossed my mind too- thanks for the suggestions!!

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
