5 posts in this topic

Anyone been out to Pearl Lake recently for Bass or Northern? Have a fishing tourney out next week for bass and toothers and was wondering if anyone had any pointers. Never been to the lake and plan to prefish it this upcoming week.

I havent been out there this year yet fishing except for sunnies, however I have had good luck trolling rapalas for northerns. We trolled deep divers in about 12-18 fow and caught a decent number of northerns. The colors we usually used were neon green and blues. Good luck

Was out this weekend and hammered the bass. Fishing in the weeds using black plastic worms carolina rigged. Was out both Sat and Sun mornings. Between two guys we caught 30 plus bass - largest being 5 lbs. Tried spinner baits but couldn't keep the northerns off. Bass wanted it worms fished slow. How did you do in your tournament?

Tourney went quite well besides the super thick fog that didn't let up till around 9:00. We ended up taking 3rd. We thought we had a good chance at it with a nice Largemouth that was near 18" and two others that were 14 and 16 but ended up getting smoked by a boat with a young boy around 9-9 yrs old that brought in a 18 3/4" Largemouth! So it was really fun to see him win it. He won a guided bass fishing trip with a guide from St. Cloud as well as 2 tickets to see the Twins vs. Detroit this weekend in the 4th row behind 3rd base. All the entry fees went to Habitat for Hummanity and we ended up raising $440.00 for a super cause! Feel free to come join the tourney next year. It was put on by Celebraton Lutheran out of Sartell and are hoping to make it much larger next year!

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
