I'll be on minnetonka on saturday, where I'm sure I'll have the lake all to myself (note the sarcasm). Sunday I'll be on big marine...in hopes of finally catching something on my tip up this year.

Unfortunately my pike quest has ended for this year as I'll be unable to get out this weekend. I too had poor luck with my tip-ups this year, but I did pull in a few. Most of my pike came on small jigs when I was targeting crappies, and I did have one break the line on my tip-up.

I thought it was just me. I've had several flags this year & haven't caught one pike! Everything I've caught has come on the rods. Two years ago I couldn't buy a fish on the rod everything on tip-ups. Maybe when I'm 90 I'll understand fishing.

I'll either be on Mille Lacs or Shamineau near Motley. If I'm on Shamineau we'll have a bunch of people so we'll be flagging a huge area.

      any  reports from today? we pounded through the washing machine waves all day and got nothing! Lead core,jigging, spinners haha! Ended up getting all our keepers within a mile of home when it was all over! Who else was out there? Am I the only one that did poor today?

      Cool nights and only a few warming hours each day have water temps coming down into the 50s this week.  This is actually pretty normal for the last week of September so there is nothing to odd here. 
       
      The catfish have slowed down over the past few days with this cool off.  They are still around to catch.  They are hanging near structure, usually on the drop off to the channel right next to it.  They are also on the softer side of the current in holes.  It seems that longer sit times are in order this week to allow the fish to come out, find and decide to eat the bait.
       

      Sucker seems to be the bait of choice right now.  Frogs just have not been getting any attention.

      From the fall Pelican Lakes Association newsletter - DNR Fisheries Update:

      You may have heard about the 454 adult cormorantsthat were removed from Gooseberrry Island this May by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Unit under a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  DNR staff looked at the stomach contents of 30 birds. Eleven of those birds had stomach contents including: 38 perch (mostly 4- inchers), 7 spot-tail shiners, 7 bluegills, 6 crappies, 1 rock bass, 1 pike, and zero walleyes.

      Thanks for the Update.  Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :):)

      They were really slow today. I fished hard all day and didn't manage much. Went over tons of fish and they weren't active at all. Should get better as the weekend gets closer...I hope

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.

      Dennis Anderson, Outdoor writer for the Minneapolis Tribune had a nice write up on the duck opener at Pelican. In addition there were some locals quoted on duck hunting there. Sounds like the ducks are back, and they have the water levels well under control.

    • Thanks Don! its a good time of year to be on the water!! :)
