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.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
