Where was everyone this weekend? I had the smallish lake I fish to myself both days. After the quick limits on Saturday I couldn't believe it. Very nice, guess everyone stayed home.

BLB,
How was E. Battle..?

My dad and brother spent most of the time chasing crappies, with little to no success. they did mannage to catch two eye when chasing them.

I missed out due to a wedding I was in, but will be up there this weekend for sure.

If your out this weekend, I'll be in a smokercraft FAZER with a chocolate lab.

Was your place in the south basin, on the SE shore? I think you and I chatted several months ago.
Or are you the guy with a place where Woodland Park used to be?

We tried for crappies to start on E Battle.
We got one. Wow!
We ended up going after sunnies for a while, just to catch some fish, and we got some, but nothing worth writing home about. We kept 8 I think.

I am staying home this weekend. I gotta get some home stuff done, because bass opener will be taking up another 5 days of fishing.

C'mon Chuck you live up there now you should have it figured out. At least you should know better than to go to OT for opener. There is a better lake than that in your back yard. (or do you consider 210 your back yard)

A smallish lake you had to yourself in my back yard?? That could be hundreds of lakes! LOL I have an idea, but it's not that "small". You have relatives up here I can pump for info. LOL tongue.gif

Chuck, I don't tell my relatives anything, rarely my friends, so pump away. (I even lie to my own father about location) It is one of the lakes Josie loves to shoot her mouth off about at Ben's though.

That is correct, a guy can give information on types of lure, bait and depth. But if it is smaller than the Big O or West Battle the name of the lake is part of the code "Don't ask don't tell."


Myself I was out last night and the bite was ok, I boated 4 eyes all on a yellow jig with a fathead. The magic depth was 10', after the sun set the fish were in 6'.


My partner only boated a sunfish, he tried lindy, yellow jig and slip float. Bummer for him but is was absolutely great to be on the lake enjoying the fantastic whether and Men conversation. Why does my wife always ask what we (men) talked about. All men talk about is fishing this time of the year.


Good Luck and Be Safe

Yes, we did talk a few months ago, My dad lives on the SE shore... Comming south through the narrows go around the big point and head straight east and youd run into his house.

I guess the Crappies are slowly comming into the shallows, but nmost were cought in 8-12 feet. I'll let you know how it goes this weekend.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
