Saturday

Recommended Posts

mlb

Fished saturday afternoon for about 4 hours. Very very hot, and not the fishing. Started out with 2 crappies in our first 2 minutes in the water then a small sauger and then all we could manange was sheepies. Water temp was reading 88 degrees. I have to believe the fish must move deeper, and or to cooler water, just not sure where to look for these areas near lake city. Any ideas would be great.

We fished the Maiden Rock area Saturday late morning / early afternoon as well with about the same results (VERY hot and very few fish). I did talk to some guys that said the bite was decent in the morning in that area with some real pigs caught. We went out Sunday morning in the same general area and with the wind picking up a bit picked up 14 walleye from 15-23" in about 4-5 hours with several smaller fish mixed in. With the breeze the surface temp was down to about 83 degrees (had 90 degrees Friday afternoon). Ours came on Shad Raps running about 14' of water (on the bottom) while I heard others were fishing 15-16' but only running baits about 10' deep..

Thanks for the reports Smitty and mlb. Sound like it can be a hit or miss thing latley.

I gotta get back down to Pepin again soon! Anybody got an extra seat in the boat? I would like to go trolling crank baits sometime.

Dan you could come along with us sometime if you'd like? But it will be a bit before we can get to pepin, We're going to MIlle Lacs for a few days Wed. Then probably have to combine small grain. We have two sets of planer boards, so could run six lines.

Hi Rick, Thanks for the generous offer. Combining some oats? Ours are ready now. Just waiting for some bailer parts.

I went down Sunday and did VERY well. We had a 2 man limit of nice walleyes in the livewell by 9am.

Then we went pike hunting and boated a bunch of quality pike. Called it a day by 2pm........

Big G congrats on a great day. Without giving me the spot on the spot, can you give me a general area and presentation for wallaees that worked for you last Sunday. Heck, even the pike too. I need a fun day. Looking to head out tomorrow.

Won't say where for the pike, other than we launched out of Evert's and we were using spinnerbaits.

As for walleyes........Well..........Can't really say much there either, without spilling the can of beans. Again, launched out of Evert's. We were using cranks......

Talk to Dean down there, out of Evert's. They are catching quality fish and if you launch out of there, he will tell you where to go and what to do.

      Is there a public access on the lake? I see it is stocked so Im guessing it must be a public lake. Would like to try and fish for lakers through the ice..

      Here's another issue can't play this video: 23 minutes ago, curt quesnell said: Mid January rolls in and fishing remains pretty good on LOTW.  Shot this video Monday. Last round of snow added a million pillow drifts of a foot or two tall.  Off road travel is possible but not like it was last week .NCOR MLK Day Report.mp4     Sorry, there is a problem We could not locate the item you are trying to view.

      I would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.
