Who is in for Saturday!

Recommended Posts

tunrevir

I'll be headed out in the early a.m. Saturday morning for a little walleye action and if that slows will work some whitebass and crappies to pass the time. Who all is going out this weekend? Walleyes should be post spawn for the most part from the fish I saw earlier last week but there will be a few stragglers shallow yet and around the spawning areas. I plan on casting cranks to the shoreline early then troll a few cranks and if the box is looking sparse then I'll switch to the jig and minnow and some plastics action. Remember to pick up your AIS sticker and put it on your trailer and have the sticker in your boat somewhere(You can pick them up at the local liscense bureau). Might get you past an early season stop from the DNR. Make sure the boat lights work, the batteries are topped off and charged and your trailer lights are working. Make sure there are enough PFD's for the people in your boat and check and make sure your electronics are working, along with the trolling motor. Give a quick squirt of grease to the zerts on the motor and the wheelbearings of the trailer. Make sure the landing net is in the boat and you have all the current liscs. needed for yourself and the boat and trailer. Don't forget the tackle box:) Have a safe and fishy outing this weekend! Tightlines!

I will add a little to this remember its only fishing not worth getting into a hurry out there. And not worth the hassel of argueing with the others when they are in your way some are more experienced than others. so just calm down. Good luck guys and gals!!! Lets see some pictures of the beauties you catch this weekend......

Good stuff Tunrevir!

Good luck this weekend guys!

I'm headed out of Franconia to try my luck. Been out a few times with no luck for whites and cats. Got a few pesky eyes during the search....guess a guy can't complain. But they need to get a little bigger if I want to have a meal this weekend wink

Gonna be out at 12:01 am Saturday morning. I'll try to limit out before the crowd gets out. Hope the rains stay away, awfully chilly if temps are in the 40s overnight and rainy. Oh wells maybe that'll keep some people away.

I'll have my little jon boat on the river Saturday morning chasing the walleyes too. Should at least be a little warmer than it was a few weeks back. Looks like the river levels have come up a bit in the past couple weeks too so we'll be working the edges and trolling cranks.

Gonna be out there this Sat... Not sure if on foot or by boat, but I'll be there. I've finally decided on joining the droves in the Hudson area.

How do you guys think the weather will affect the fishing? I just checked and it said rain/snow showers and 49 degrees. Sunday will be decent though - it's just too bad I have to work.

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
