FNG wanting to say hello!

10 posts in this topic

I wanted to say Hello to everybody. I have been lurking for awhile and decided I would finally introduce myself.

I am from Rochester,MN and the inlaws have a cabin on Big Sandy, where I will be spending alot of my time this summer, chasing after walleye, when I am not a the race track. I am just recently getting back into fishing and I thank all of you for the tips and info. Keep them coming.

Thanks

If I remember right it is fishermans bay. I am not too familiar with the entire lake and locations yet, but I am hoping this summer will give me enough time to learn it some more.

The fishing this week up at BS was a little slow. All we could seem to catch were slimers and some rock bass. Are the walleyes going deeper? We stuck to the dock most of the days and only got out on the boat a few times.

I am on the point of the pennisula (off of bridge road).

FYI it is motorcycle racing that I love. Up to now I have only been able to do trackdays, but hopefully everything will comes together and I will become a first time racer this weekend coming up.

Which penninsula off Bridge Road?

The In-laws are off Bridge Road as well. Just before the bridge.

You take the first left off of bridge road (where all the signs are on the tree) and it is back in there.

Are your inlaws back there? Where?

Nope. Keep going. They are right on Bridge Road just before you come to the bridge.

2 places west of the bridge on the south side of the road.

I think I know where you are talking about. Do they have a little red jet boat and a 3 wheeler?

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
