Where to fish this weekend

7 posts in this topic

Where would you recommend going this weekend? Depths? Colors?

I did pretty good for perch and eyes on Bemidji last weekend...

I'm trying Bemidji tonight and probably Upper Red tommorrow on into the evening. Depending on how it goes up there I may come back and fish the late night on Bemidji.

will do. Did okay on Bemidji tonight, bite started at 5:15pm and went pretty good for about an half hour. Couple decent eye's and a couple really nice jumbos. Caught some smaller walleyes that got put back to grow up, 12" range. Packed up at 6:45pm and headed home, my 4 year old was looking pretty tired out. Looking forward to Red tomorrow.

Went out of Aggasiz, 10 miles west and a mile north. Very few people out there, had a decent bite between 5:30pm to 6pm then it shut down. Couple wally's, one nice crappie, and a decent perch. Left at 8pm.

Tried Bemidji this morning, not much moving. Marked a couple and pulled up a couple perch between two guys.

Buck- Did you move around drilling holes finding fish or more of staying and waiting game? Thanks for the reports. I may be up on Red this weekend.

we moved around a little bit, less then 20 holes. I've had tough luck on Red this season, but the bite is starting to pick up. Next time up I think I'm going to focus on areas a little closer to the shoreline as the crappies should start moving in within a couple weeks. Good luck and let me know how you do.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
