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.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
