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

Recommended Posts

Rookie_4_Ever

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!

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.

      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
