Schuster’s Report? / Walleyejon

Recommended Posts

FisherDan

Well our annual trip to LOW has finally came. We will be heading up on this Wednesday. Will be on the ice Thursday morning till Sunday. Staying in Schuster’s sleeper. Does anyone have any recent reports and or tips out of Schuster’s sleepers from this past weekend? We plan on having dinner and throwing a few brews down Wednesday evening at the wigwam. If any FM’s are there stop by and say hi. The four of us have the whole night to kill. Anyone happen to know what time Log Cabin Bait opens? We got to get our supply of shiners.

Walleyejon, If you happen to read this post I don’t think we will be able to pull off having that cold one this trip. The little woman and I may be coming back up on the weekend of the 29th with a couple of big groups of guys. I think they are staying at Birch View. I’m thinking that would be about a 10-mile ATV drive to the pond. I don’t think the little woman would handle that long of a cold ride. I was thinking about staying at Morris point. I read a post on here that it is only about 1to 2 miles from shore to the fishing from there. I know you are in that general area and if your up we just might be able to have it then.

wmn luv me walleye fearme

5 of us were out there from friday until sunday in schusters sleeper. Best bite seemed to be about 10-12:30 at least for us. No set pattern, I seemed to do better when not jigging and just leaving it alone with a bobber and a glow jig. We probably caught about 50 between us (almost all on saturday ) kept 20 largest was I caught a 21 incher that was a pig. Largest keeper though about 16 inches. Fat heads /shiners did the same. A lot of times I was marking them but could notget them to bite when I was jigging, only when I set it down

good luck to you

Hey Dan. The road at Morris is in good shape, and it is only a mile or so out to where people are fishing. There are houses spread out all over up there, so access in different directions off the main roads should not be a problem. Keep in touch, as I am there every weekend.

      South Shore.  A good bite was reported for last week with the warmer temperatures in 24-32'. In addition to traditional daytime bite, some anglers getting into some good fish after dark on structure which is not typical. Morning evening bite in 15-17' for walleyes continues to be good.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape as warm weather moving around ice. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink UV.  Small rippin raps in bright and gold colors. Auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained hot. Good walleyes in 18-28' with saugers and perch in deeper water. Set dead stick a bit higher than jigging line.  Resorts guiding for crappies on the Ontario side of lake, best bite in 30' or deeper, morning best. Crappie mortality rate high when releasing in 25' or deeper thus move on to walleyes or another species when you have your fish.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Jerkin, you are absolutely onto something. Back when I used to put a permanent out in the south metro, I made sure to fish as many weekdays as possible. Weekends were always worthless, no matter the conditions. Luckily vermilion is big enough to get away from it all!

      Clifford, how is the slush out there? I have slush in front of my home and looking at sled tracks they are turning color also.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.
