Little rock 2-28-08

9 posts in this topic

Got out on the ice about 12:00 this afternoon. Ended up getting into a mess of Crappies ranging from 6-8" in about 15 fow. All were caught on glow jigs with fresh waters shrimps. We also hit 1 sunny at 11", thing was a tank.. wish i got a picture but something about ice holes eating electronics sits in the back of my head.

Didnt keep anything because the crappie were to small and that lake has a sketchy past. You can still see the blue/green bloom in the water once you punch a hole.

Ya right, not in that lake, did you release it or keep it for the wall?

Yup on Little Rock. I released it. If i were to get a mount it would be a replica. Hit 2 others last sunday one at 10" and another at 9".

I have yet to make up fish stories, no need to start now.

Those are some tanks Canoe. Way to go! Never really hear of sunnies out of the Rock, no reason to call you a liar though.

Backwaters of the Mississippi can produce some monster panfish! LR isn't the best backwater with the alge bloom/fishing pressure but you can still find some nice panfish if you know where to look....

ASMOLEY just wonder if some of the backwaters you are talking about would be like a bigger bay that has about 5 foot max depth and has weed growth there in the summer. Would you fish these in the late ice period because I have a spot in mind that I duck hunt and always wondered if there were pannies in the area.

      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'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.
