Deer Lake report...

3 posts in this topic

I was out on Deer last night from about 6:30 to 11:30. I rigged leeches the first 3 hours and couldn't keep the largies, rocky's, perch, and bluegill off the hook. I started crankin' about 9:30 and caught a 22" 'eye in about 7-8' of water on a #7 shallow shad rap black/chrome. No other bites that felt like walleye, caught a few rockies as always. When trolling raps, do you usually catch one here, one there, or do you catch them in close proximity to eachother? I've always caught one here, one there.

Brian,

A little off the topic, but I promised to tell you how we did on Turtle. Biggest smallie I caught was 4 lbs. As Ken said, there is a slot on them. Caught as many LM as SM. Only one Northern (5 lbs.). Not one eye all week. Kids had a great time catching sunnies.

Great structure on the lake! Can't wait to go back!

Titans,

Thanks for the report. I still have to get up to Turtle this summer yet, maybe Tuesday? Any size to the sunnies? I always heard about the smallies on Turtle and never largies, but it's nice to know they're both in there. I've heard about the big gators in Turtle and plan on trying it this winter at first ice, either spearing or angling. Thanks for the report!

Brian

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
