Pearl Lake

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?

The tourney is on Saturday from 7am-12. Thanks guys so much for the help. I was kinda figuring the finesse approach for the bass but 5lbs....NICE! Hopefully we can pully up so big 'ol gators on Rapalas too!

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!

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
