17 posts in this topic

F-Dog --

Yes we should have a small get together. What are you thinking? When and where? Like we did this winter? A little fishing and a little BS-ing?

Guys -- what do you think?

I'm new to all this but I'd give it a try? Perhaps a boater non-boater thing! I have enough room for 2. I'd trade spots on my boat for some advice on the lake and technique. Anyone willing to "dance" with a muskie lure is okay with me! Just yell "fore" on the backcast! I'm free in the evening most days. Reply or PM, StM

Don't know, I'm up for anything. I'd prefer chasing crappies, but I'm sure everyone would rather chase waldo's. Let's get some more ideas from others before we make a choice.

This season started fishing walleye tounaments which got me obsessed with the dad-blame fish. smile.gifcrazy.gif Got to admit that I'm having the best year in a long time chasing and catching 'em though.

I took a little time with the fly and spinning rods chasing 'gills and bass which was a lot of fun but for some reason the challenge of old marble eyes keep drawing me in. Why is that? confused.gif Crappies, 'gills and bass are more fun to catch smile.gif

Sept. 2nd - 6th we'll be at Maplewood State Park Lida Campgrounds chasing whatever on Lida/Beers/Bass/21/Fladmark/Star and the 16th - 23rd prefishing/fishing the Cormorant classic tournament. Other then that I'm ready for any fishing/anytime/just about anywhere grin.gif if I'm not working or on-call frown.gif

You bought a musky pole, eh? Well, I hear it happens to all of us eventually. The lure of the big fish after your 2,146th cast -- I can see it. It would be fun but I don't know if I can sit that long and not catch anything.

Minnow-man -- let me know how you do.

BTW -- it is almost hunting season -- a guy only has so much time for Hunting, eyes and Night Rider. wink.gif

Yeah I got a boat, but it gets kind of lonely by yourself all the time.

Not many fishermen here in the park and the ones that do only fish Sunnies, which I like to fish, but also like to chase a Walter once in a while and I got a lot of Muskie tackle getting old here. confused.gifgrin.gifcrazy.gif

Hit, next time you decide to hit Big C at night, give me a jingle. I'll take you out in the new boat laugh.gif. It's a 19' Triton tiller with lots of goodies. Where's the get together gonna be? How about Sallie again, those crappies should be on the breaks around the humps.

Fisherdog.

      I hope this weekend is better than last!!  I know there is a  lot of ducks around but they have so many places to hide.

    • If you want to stay away from the crowd I would suggest Beacon Harbor I think after jan 1st they don't allow day passes its only beacon harbor and outdoor authority who have houses there. Then they allow only a limited amount of yearly passes.

      Now they don't have all the bells and whistles like a bar and food ect but John and Ann are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Not to mention I personally think it is some of the best.

       

      Now if you needed a bar and food and all that my choices would be Rogers or Westwind

      Today was the complete opposite of yesterday. The current coming out of light house gap made a pocket of clear water out in the lake overnight, fished right on the edge of the muddy water in 14 feet of water and went through 3 bags of frozen shiners and caught a bunch on plastics after the minnows were gone. Nothing fantastic for size, only 3 in the slot but nice limits of 14-17 inchers and a ton of smaller fish. Once that muddy water gets blown out or clears up the bite is going to be crazy good!

      I got 4 nice ones last Friday in about 8' to 9' of water in a channel off Wakemup Bay .  It was the last hour of daylight.  Tried a couple times during the day Saturday and right before dark and struck out.

      Zach-

      I have been making annual ice fishing trips with friends for about 12 years ago.  We have tried LOTW, Mille Lacs, Red and one other lake that happened to be where we could use a free cabin for a weekend.  With that one exception for the free cabin, we have also rented sleepers.

      We have never made it to Devils Lake, but it is on my personal bucket list just because of the possibility of those monster perch.

      Six years ago, we ended up back on Red and no longer consider any other option.  Here's why:

      • This fishing is good.
      • The Petrowske family are wonderful hosts.
      • No other resort that we have used has come close to being wonderful hosts.  They just didn't put any effort into it.

      Now, I don't know how that you translate to your running portables, but I have never been disappointed with our trips to URL.

      Hope that helps.

      You should definitely try Devils lake I went 3 years ago and had a blast. Not only did we get put on a good perch bite but they put us on an Insane walleye bite the guy said it was about an hour window from when the sun starting setting and boy was he right in that hour I caught walleye after walleye after walleye. As soon as I would start reeling one up another mark would take its place on my graph and I couldn't get my lure down fast enough.

      I am sure Johnny P is all booked up on weekends by now and for some reason some of the guys don't like sleeper houses all though I may push for it this year last year was such a hassle packing everything up for the night loading the trucks having to bring sleds and wheelers. I much rather bring my flasher couple rods and lots of beer. I go fishing enough running and gunning its nice to have a break where you just show up and fish.

       

      I usually go to red 3-4 times a year and last year we did go to red for our work trip as well. Just weighing the options.

       

      Has anyone ever rented house from Arties bait on big stone?

      I don't know what to say, we crushed em jigging in 30 feet last Friday while getting knocked around in the waves. Anchored up and never moved. Lots of boats on the river already then and not good reports at that point. I was going to go back up for Saturday and if I did I would go straight out to 30 feet again.

      Gee, think things might be rigged?  Got to be there in person to bid.  Maybe they would get a better price if bidding were on line?  Of course that would inhibit the buddy system.  Make it inconvenient to bid, get lower bids, make the in crowd happy. 

    • Anyone sniffing any fall-pattern crappies??   Have they found the way to the basin-areas or nearby the basin areas ?   Thanks
