Hanska report

10 posts in this topic

Got to Giegers point today about 4:30 and fished till 6:15. Walked out about 40-50 yards and fished in 10.5 feet of water. Caught one 11 inch walleye at 5 pm and a medium sized crappie at 6. That was all. Talked to 2 other parties leaving the same time I did and they didn't get anything. Maybe the bite started after I left ?

I'm gonna go try it sometime this week wensday or thrusday. I usually try to find right where it drops off. Have had pretty good luck in the past. As for time About an hour after dark i have had the best fishing. Also found that a pink jig has worked best for me. I let you know how I did.

Tried Hanska again tonight (Wednesday). Fished 25 yards from the end of the fishing pier from 4:30 to 6:15 with no luck. Didn't even get a bite. I think the only things showing on the flasher were bullheads. Tried the camera but the water is so dirty visibility was less than one foot even with the LEDs on. Think I gonna give up on Hanska for a week and maybe try Clear next time out.

Fished Godahl landing on Thurs afternoon and evening and caught 1 bullhead. We saw alot of fish on the vex, but none were willing to bite. I'm not going to give up on Hanska quiet yet, but I might wait till it warms up a bit. That should turn them on, I hope.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
