Final Weekend Gameplan?

8 posts in this topic

Whats everyones game plan for the final weekend? Shallow, Deep, Weeds, Rock, Sand, Mud? Not quite sure what my plan is yet, would like to pick up a few eyes, or some pike.... I may head to a spot with my perm where I did well on the panfish lastyear this time, also a good spot for the bigger fish if running some tip-ups.. Its a small hole 10-15 ft with weeds nearby.... That lake seems to have quieted down, not nearly as many people on it as there were when the crappies were biting real good. Hopefully theres a bite heating up for this weekend. grin.gif Either way its time on the ice!! Good Luck All!

I have family coming down for the final weekend to flag fish. I have heard reports of good piking on east Jeff - but have never fished it. Any tips on locations out there?

My gameplan is to catch as many walleyes as possible...although it is much easier said than done! lol

Icehouseaddict: I think I know the area and lake you are talking about and I was considering a move there as well, but I'm not sure. I say go for it though, if it is the same lake and area I'm thinking about the possibilities are endless as to what you may catch!

And Welcome to FM! I am fairly new here as well!

Jaspernuts: The weed bed on the south bay of the lake seems to be where all of the spearing guys go. Otherwise the front bay right by the landing has a small hump in it that seems to attract the darkhouse crew as well.... I haven't had much luck on the slimers this year so I can't be much more help than that...

Thanks icehouse. I had a lake going good for pike but had 0 flags last weekend. Looking at the net counts - this lake definitely has them in there. We have only pickled 1 batch this year, need to get some this weekend!

My gameplan: Work deep on the inside turns and tips of points at the base of the breaks for walleyes. If nothing, move shallower. Then if nothing, come home and have a cold one! grin.gif

With the ice how thick it is and having only a hand auger I might be better off sitting on the ice with a 6 pack and not even fishing. I think I might just stay home with a 6 pack and wait for the thaw so I can drill a hole.

I think I will take the kids to a movie, spend some time with the wife and rest. Going to URL next week for 5 days of beer, more beer and maybe some fishing mixed in there somewhere. Good luck to all this weekend.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      Is the Vermilion egg capture complete?

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go.

      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
