Thanks

Latest walleye reports from Minnewaska has been a night bite. Best bet has been after dark on the edges of the rock piles on the east side in 14-20 feet with leeches and crawlers on spinner rigs.

If the 'eyes don't cooperate, try fishin the smallies. small jigs and tubes in the same areas just before dark.

good luck and good fishing...

Mr. Ghotierman,

I'm going to be in Glenwood that weekend and in to the next week too. I'm wondering if there is any point to going to Emily. The bite must have died or people aren't talking.

Maybe I'll stop in to the store and say howdy.
Thanks.

Mrmom...

Haven't hear any new info for Emily. We've had some hot muggy weather of late, that may have tightened the lips on those 'eyes. Getting some cooler nights now, though. Some lake temps have dropped almost 10 degrees. So you might hit it just right. Give it a go and see how you do...

good luck and good fishing!

Hey Ghotierman!

Was staying on Pelican lake by Glenwood. I did get out on that lake and did catch a 17 inch walleye in 19 feet of water trolling a storm thunderstick in perch color. I was planning on hitting Minnewaska tuesday night. Unfortunately, my son had a medical emergency tuesday afternoon and he and I ended up at Gillette hospital in St. Paul. He's fine now.

So I still haven't hit Emily. Next chance is mid-September. I'll keep you posted...Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I had to leave the boat behind at the in-laws in Brooten. If it were June I would be crying!

I know what you mean about the weeds. There are these old guys on a pontoon who are out on Goose Lake (over by Rush City, E central MN) just about every day all summer. We call them "the slip bobber boys". They slip bobber walleyes in the weeds and everybody who has never talked to them thinks they are sunfishing. They do get sunnies too and they run big in that lake.

Anyway, thanks for the info. I'll check in with you next time I go out west. I think it will be soon. I can hear my boat calling me.

mistermom

ps Just curious: Do you know about lake ------- ? It is real near my in-laws, has no developement on it, the dnr just put in a decent ramp a few years ago, and there probably is a state record largemouth swimming in it. The dnr just started stocking walleyes about 5 years ago and the max depth is about 13 feet. Just wondering if you are familiar with this lake. I don't want to say the name because it already is a lot less of a secret then it was 10 years ago.

I think I know which lake you are talking aobut...Isn't the landing still really bad there? If it is the one I am thinking about though, you are right...I think the state record is in there!!!

DNR reports aren't always accurate. Max depth is at least 13' right now and the lake is/was down.

Mister Mom ,
I don't know if you fish this lake or not but I know I wouldn't be posting info about it. This is a nice lake but it has gotten to muck attention in the past few years.

This lake cant support people taking big fish out of there.

I think if you look back through the thread you will see that mistermom did not mention the name of the lake. Skeets did. Mistermom was just asking Ghotierman if he was familiar with lake *******. Then others started piecing it together. Mistermom should have not said anything. But he tried to be discreet.

I apologize. My bad. I was just trying to give a heads-up to Ghotierman because he had been helpful to me with questions. Smallie is right. This lake is a definet catch and release lake....Now lets all stop posting and this topic will fade away.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?
    • Hoey
      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.  
    • Hoey
      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.  
    • Hoey
      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.
    • Jarrid Houston
      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH

      Anybody know if there is a pressure ridge/ice heave out in front of the Warroad Access? I know ice conditions will change throughout the coming weeks. Looking forward to getting after some pike.  The last few years there has been a pressure ridge there, last year it went from Springsteel over to Swift. And we've been up there plenty of times when there hasn't been one at all. Just curious to find out what conditions are like in that bay. Thanks!
    • Hoyt4
      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.
