Anyone get out the night of the storm?

Recommended Posts

MrSenarighi

Went out to fish lake the night of the storm and had the best night we've had all year. I don't know if it was the incoming front or what, but the walleyes were hitting hard. We kept 9 over 14" and missed about 4 or 5 more. I have only been getting a few each time out so this was much needed. Went out yesterday same spot and only managed two worth keeping. Had to downsize tremendously & even had hooked one with a power grub and tiny jig. Anyone else have any luck that night?

I was out on Fish the night of the storm. Finallay got a line wet right after sun down. Only had two small eyes and a rock bass. We stayed until 8 ish. Must not have been holding my mouth right. I thought for sure that the wind was going blow us across the lake. We were marking quite a few fish but couldn't get them figured out. Enough to drive a guy to drink....or maybe that was the problem....

We got on the lake at 7ish in the morning, fished till 6 pm, around 3 o'clock, the fish started to turn on, got into some real nice crappies and some huge bluegills and a walleye here and there with the occasional pike mixed in. So far for the season, it was the best day we had on FL all year, we were in about 14 f.o.w. The strangest thing was, the crappies would not bite above the bottom, you could watch on the Vex as they would drop down and take it towards the bottom foot or less, the bottom band on the Vex just light up! grin.gif

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.

      Brian, Under-bite = whitefish? I have not 'bled' my fish. What's your basic process? Thank you.
    • BrianF
      The size and color says 'whitefish', but the only way to tell for sure is if it had an under-bite to it's jaw - and that just isn't something this photo allows us to see very clearly.  In any case, nice fish!  Nice photo! Pat, question for you...ever 'bleed' your fish on the ice before bringing them in to fillet?  Make a world of difference in both the fillets you get and the mess the fish makes when cutting them up.  Maybe you bled this one in a different way from how I do it though.

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...
