The Slabs and the suns.

21 posts in this topic

I just got back from a two day fishing bender and my party of four landed 50 crappies and 115 suns. Now I can't tell you the lakes. I wouldn't want the two lakes swaped with people.

So where the perch and the crappies biting around the Fergus Falls area? I just bought a new fish house so plan on breaking it in this week.

If you guys really want to know. It was called Murphy. We were in about 8fow. We slayed the sunnies, then we moved to a spot a little deeper about 18fow, then we hammered the crappies. None were huge, but good size eaters. It was pretty fun action. We got out there around 11pm and didn't stay past 2am. We filled out two limits within that time slot.

There you go. I just had to hold out on you guys. haha. Take it easy now. Later!

Actually it's OK to brag as long as you don't over do it and report your fishing properly. It's not just a fishing forum only afterall. But people on here are gonna get you for doing it if it sounds like bragging. Which is also wrong. And then it didn't help that you asked for help afterwards to that.

You didn't have to reveal your exact location, probably the general area would been more than enough. Your not obligated to tell anyone anything but if your want to be helpful post information about your catch & presentation, not just about how you slammed all them fish.

I wasn't bragging. I knew that if I were to tell the info, there would be tons of people out there. I know that some of the local people would hate that. I suppose it's not a big deal anymore. Now that the houses are off the lake. I know I would hate it, if there were tons of people buzzing around the lake. Wouldn't you?

Markin...that is the way the ball bounces..guys don't want to give out a hot bite..there are thousands of people on this site daily, if a guy was to say they were killin the craps on WBL on the south side in 10ft, that post would recieve 1000 hits and you would have a new village set up on saturday. This site a guy has to be kind of selective with info. There shouldn't be lies out there like one person stated, just to throw a guy off.. We all need a little help thats why we are on this site, I think.

Hot bite reports, especially on small lakes, tend to get held to the pretty close to the vest here. That's fine, IMO. The local bait shops will be quick to point you to some good lakes to try, and that is what they are in business to do.

A few years ago, a small local lake was touted here as having a hot tulibee bite. The next weekend, it was swamped with people.

The Fergus Journal did a spread on West Battle this winter. Now that is a known community spot going back for decades, but this winter is was even bigger due to that article.

When I lived in Fargo, I would always get bait in Hawley, same gas station everytime, I would ask for the report, How about middle cormorant??His Reply "ahh Hit or miss"?? How bout the northerns out there?? his reply, "Some"..This guy must have liked his bait or something!! Same guy told my buddy where to set-up on a lake?? Where did I do wrong?? I guess I should have got gas too!!

Its all hit or miss alot of guys build up their reputation. no matter how weird that sounds. you have to give alittle information to get some. I know the local bait stores around alexandria where its the same way.

Uh-huh. Adrian is one of the meat men there. I worked with him in Bismarck and in Pelican Rapids. Great guy, he'll take you right to the walleyes and northerns in the store.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.
