Searching for marble eyes...

3 posts in this topic

I'm heading up the the Delano area this weekend and since the girlfriend has to work I'm going out fishing with her brother. He's a pretty experienced fisherman but hasn't been able to land any 'eyes this season. Of course, neither have I. I just want to match my total from last year's ice: 1. I know it's pretty sad, but I was hoping to get some tips of where (if anywhere!) there might be some 'eyes. We hit some of the lakes up around Wright county last weekend, only a few very small crappies, nothing on Waconia, one on Whaletail and a few on Dog. Should we goto Minnetonka? Wayzeta? Any advice would be appreciated, if you don't want to post: jwhawkridge @ gmail . com Thanks guys!!! By the way, the crappies have been biting decent around Mankato, and they've mostly been big, 10 inches +!!!

Since waconia isnt really doing much this year, from delano I would head to Buffalo if I was searching for eye's. Its a good walleye lake and shouldnt be too hard to get on an eye spot if you ask at the bait shop or maybe even on here.

jwhawkridge, check your email. It's an idea that worked for me in the past!

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
