area lake reports?

6 posts in this topic

Got a buddy coming up from Roch. and looking for some pointers. Watab/Big Fish? How has the bass/walleye been? I do mostly river fishin and the buddy is bringing the boat. Would be helpful to be steered in the right direction for the weekend. Any news on Suger/Clearwater area....Thinking that for Sunday? Maybe?

Was on Big Fish on the evening of the 5th with my 8 year old fishing for Bass. We mostly fished docks and inside weedlines because that is what he prefers. We caught over 15 bass but mostly on the small side using jig worms and wacky worms. I think we would have caught bigger fish if we had fished the deep weedlines.

Was on a smaller lake near St. Cloud last night and basically fished the same techniques and only caught 6.

In the thread labeled PEARL LAKE, looks like the bass were bitting well this last weekend. I was down by Willmar this last Sunday for a little bit visiting the 'rents on Nest Lake. The word is the bass are going ok there- with decent size smallies and largies being caught.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
