West end report

2 posts in this topic

Just got back from a week on the West end... All I heard for catching Walleye was "Lindy & crawler". Well, we tried variations on that (Lindy's, jigs, spinners, crawlers, minnows, leeches) without success. However, we caught several nice 'eyes on deep-diving Rapalas. Also, the night fishing was abyssmal.

Bass also were near impossible to remove from the water. Everyone was commenting that it was a slow week for fishing. It didn't help that a nasty storm washed through Tuesday night that killed the bite for 24 hours.

Good luck all!

Steve

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
