Saturday

11 posts in this topic

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.

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.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
