nice size sunfish in 15 fow about 9 feet down with small jig and a piece of leech. Slibobbers work good try the edge of any weedline you mark consistent suspended fish then anchor you will catch plenty of pannies and im sure a few bass in the process. Walleye fishing is tough unless you get out after dark, even then spotty to say the least

Out on Minnewaska today and ouch...any hints or help on the fall minnewaska bite would be well appreciated! Lots of bass, along with a couple crappies and big sunnies. Do walleyes exist in this lake?

I was out on Sunday fishing for smallies. I was in 2.5 to 3 feet on the edge of the weed rock transition and caught 3 walleyes on a rattle trap. This was in the middle of the day. Also caught a ton of bass and a 6 and 7 pound pike. I wasn't fishing for walleyes but I would say that in the evening if you go really shallow and cast some shallow running cranks ripping them through the isolated weed clumps you should find some walleyes.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
