How was Saturday night?

Recommended Posts

Fishing was tough in the SE corner of the lake. Three guys, 5.5 hours, 2 fish boated, 1 missed. How was the fishing on the weed line on the west side? Does anyone think it had to do with the water level being up?

We caught a dozen walleyes on husky jerks on the west side. There were fish in the weeds if you could keep the crap off your bait. Biggest fish was 25" most others were 15-19's. A week earlier we missed a bunch of fish, this week none came loose. Is anybody else getting Full Moon Fever? Is this going to be a smaller fish year?

Seems the West Side was the better bet this weekend. Fished on Sunday eve and the wind was out of the southeast. I'm a big fan of fishing on the windward side and it has paid off well this year. Fished 6 hours and boated 10, the biggest 20". Half were caught with slip bobber/leech and half pulling cranks in 6 FOW. Also caught a bonus 18" smallie at night and a gill net. Must have been a tribal net, I certainly wasn't expecting one.

We found 3 nets on the tip of Sherman's and into wigwam bay. We ended up not seeing one in time and yes it had several eyes in it. I assume it was a DNR nets as I've heard they are surveying the lake right not and it was a higher quality gill net with flagged marker bouys. I've also heard there are nets on Indian point as well although I didn't personally see them while I was there.

As of last night there was still one net in Wigwam bay. It was a DNR net and we didn't go over and check it for fish.

None off of Indian Point that I could see

It was a little slower on the west end for us, but we still got a bunch of fish.

It looks like I will have to abandon the SE and East sides and head for the west this weekend.

The net I hit was on the North side of Indian Point, about mid way about 10' from shore. Couldn't tell if it was a tribal net or a DNR one. It was marked with 2 red colored bleach jugs. I snagged it in the middle and yes, there was a number of 'eyes in it. Was able to get my lure out of it and just left it. I assumed it was a tribal net because I had read that they were still netting because they had not reached their quota.

Fished Sat. night: 2 guys, 4 hrs of fishing, 3 eyes from 18"-20" all in 5'-6' water on shad raps. We were fishing the west side on shoreline rocks. Caught 2 on the calm side of the point (much warmer there) and one on the windward side.

Beautiful night, but I wish there would've been more moon.

You guys who have been hitting 'em good: how fast have you been trolling? We tried slow (1mph) to pretty fast (2.5mph) and caught all 3 at different speeds?!? Any pattern that you guys have noticed?

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
