      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Powerbait help needed

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

I'm heading up to Lac Seul on Sunday and need some help. If anyone has any 3" or 4" Powerbait Grubs in colors White or Pearl and you'd be interested in selling them let me know. Everywhere in town is out of stock for the past couple weeks. I'd order from Berkley directly, but don't want to chance they not come in on time as I don't know how they ship. I may need to make a trip over to Cabelas if need be.

Shoot me an email at wilhorn@charter.net if you can help.

Thanks.

The grubs have a minnow head with a twister tail.. right? or are you talking about the Powerbait power minnows? or something different.

FYI: From my experiences, plastics work best in colder water. As the water temp gets above 50+ degrees, I like to hang some live meat out there.

Sent you an email. If that falls through let me know I may have some other ideas for you too.

You should do quite well on plastics up there. I far outfished crawlers and frozen minnows on 2 July fly-ins to NW Ontario.

Uffda,

ever get info on the border for me?

I too am hitting LAc Seul on a fly-in, but not until next Spring. I'll have to pick your brain on plastics as well.

Tyler,

I don't think they necessarily have a minnow head. It's just their standard PowerGrub.

Uffdapete,

Read your email this morning. I'll check and see what the travel schedule is. I also checked with my dad and sounds like he had been able to pick some up as well.

I did stock up with some Lindy Muchie Grubs as I have seen people fish them with good success up on Lac Seul. I got a couple other things to try as well. Really looking forward to the trip as I've never fished Lac Seul before, but everyone I've told that I'm going up there for a week say I won't be disappointed. Less than a week away. Can't wait.

Andy

I have a ton of Gulp bait in the 3 inch minnow including an unopened pearl white pack of 20. Not sure if that is close enough or if you need the exact thing.

Its white 3 inch berkley gulp minnows that you want. The last two years I have been to Lac Suel the white gulp minnow outfished live bait and are much easier to deal with. Try stopping somewhere in the cities on the way up if you can't find any in Roch.

Jim - I emailed you the info/phone no. after you reminded me. Just emailed you some more info - reply to let me know you received it. I was having intermitent cable trouble for a couple months so the original could have ended up in cyberspace.

Exactly!!

They imitate the smelt that walleyes feed on up here in the Canadian shield lakes. Don't overlook the X-10 Raps in "glass ghost" also.

If you are driving up there the Gander in Lakeville usually has a ton of them. The Mills Fleet farm right across the road has all the exude products you'll want as well. Both are right off the hwy 50 exit and a little north up the frontage roads. Also the Gander Mtn store has (had?) a ton of stuff on clearance as well.

You can't ask for a better group! you guys would give the shirt off your back if one of us asked for it. kudos to you all! smile.gif

Yep, FM is a great place to be. I've talked to my dad as well, and it sounds like he was able to find plenty, so we should be well stocked to combat the Lac Seul walleyes. Pretty much a trip of a lifetime for me, especially since I wouldn't consider myself a diehard walleye guy. Leaving on Sunday and won't be back for a week. I'll let you guys know how we did upon return.

P.S. Don't catch all the White Bass out of Zumbro while I'm gone. laugh.gif

Jim,

If I knew I'd tell you right now. I've glanced at the general area on a map the last time I was over to Wisconsin about a month and a half ago, but that has been about it. I'm not familiar with the area at all. We are heading up with a group of guys from my dad's church. I'll be able to give better details of everything upon my return.

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.
