post-front fishing

Recommended Posts

CALVINIST

I am fishing\camping out on Kab for the first time-Wolf island area. I am looking ahead to the weather and opener looks like it will be cool side (post frontal?). Any ideas on how the eyes will be biting under these conditions, where to find them, and presentation to use would be be helpful.

Thanks

That is a great area, although there may be a front, in the post spawn time period it should not have any detrimental effect. If the front has an effect, it would tend to send the eyes a little deeper.
The backside of Wolf Island has a nice sandbar that can be great, work the breaklines, near there is Cuculus Island, between the Island and the mainland is a shallow bar thats often good early spring. Heading into Lost Bay fish the inside of Yoder Island.

Be sure to keep the wind in mind, and try to fish the windward side if possible, the Wolf Island shallows would not be affected normally be the wind. Good luck, guts.

calvinist,, With the fronts, keep fishing deeper. Sometimes, you may be in the 30 to 40 foot depths. Also, with the weather here, cold and wet, the water temps haven't warmed much, the fish will have a tendency to be in deep water. Get out the jigs, 3/8 or 1/2 oz and go slow. Many times this time of year, you will still have some bigger fish shallower and the smaller ones deep. Good Luck Fishkab

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
