"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!!

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
