Nokomis- Biggest fish of the year (so far!)

6 posts in this topic

Hey all-

I caught a "big dog" 5-6 lbs.

Hadn't a clue as to what the hell it is, until i looked up dogfish. Man! Those things fight!

Those fish seem to jump alot around sundown.

Besides this We've caught tons of bullhead, tons of little walleye, a small 2-3 lb carp...

So- anyone have any tips for this lake?

I'm so close I just want to figure out what to fish for and where to do it.

Tip ... fish through the bullheads and baby walleyes and you will eventually catch a big one ?

It works, but there are easier ways .. although it is out of season.. Big Bait when the season comes around .. big enough to detour the bullheads, perch, and cigars.

Hey there Rookie...

When I lived in Minneapolis, I used to fish Nokomis quite a bit. Come opener, find the bottom transitions from sand to muck. There's one place specifically you'll find a bunch of sand... wink.gifwink.gif One morning, wading, casting a jig with a very large fathead, I C&R'd three eyes between 5 and 8+ pounds. Oh yes, they ARE in there!! And to think I was "bummed out" I had to work on opener... grin.gifgrin.gif

Sure you'll still run into your fair share of bully's and bait stealers, but if you put in the time and learn the lake... You will be rewarded!!

I caught a monster dogfish last year with my buddy out of centerville lake. It weighed at least 11 lbs. Just a monster and it took me about 10 minutes to real in cause i had about 4lb test with my panfish rod, what a blast!

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
