Feb. 22-24 Dead Sea Report

3 posts in this topic

I went out of Hunter Winfields and all I have to say is that I recommend these guys to anyone. Nice clean houses. Caught only two in the ice house and both were lost, a big fat muskie, and a big fat walleye. My group did end up with around 10 jumbos, but we had to work hard for them. I tried every jig in my tackle box, and all sorts of live bait. There was millions of little perches. It was still a fun weekend even though the fish did not cooperate. I recommend Hunter Winfields to anyone, first class resort .

I made it up to my with my friend this weekend to his shack out of the Red Door. I had to work until 10pm friday night so we didnt get up there until 2:30 am saturday. We got our lines in the water and we were woke up at sunrise by this beauty of a 23" eye.

My friend had done well last time up with jumbos and we were hopeful that they would be around again but we had nothing but 4"ers all on the camera. So we hit some north end mud for a couple hours in the afternoon and drilled a bunch of holes. Again we found nothing but 4"ers. Saturday evening, not a run on the rattle wheels. Put the camera down sunday am and there were more perch around. I put a jig down and instantly saw a jumbo. It was cloudy and it seemed the jumbos had slid up where we were. We also saw a dozen eyes on the camera from 8-12am. We were able to pick off a few of the jumbos sunday. We saw some real brutes. We missed a few real brutes. We stayed until 8pm and headed home. Heres a few of the perch we caught.

An 11"er.

Thanks for the report james, I was up on Saturday with similar luck, a 14 inch walleye, a ton of 8 inch perch with the biggest at 11". My buddy caught a 5 pound eel pout around 3 o'clock too.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
