latest on the smallies

4 posts in this topic

Hows everyone else doing on the smallies? I've spent all day yesterday and only boated one and lost 3. I seen a bunch but couldn't get them to bite. Is it me or are they just not that aggresive lately.

I just got back from a smallie fishing trip up there and got skunked. Spent 2 days trying to catch one. Fished rocks on south side from 1-12 ft. Fished tubes, cranks, topwater,spinnerbaits... Finally switched to walleyes on the flats and salvaged my trip. I did catch some nice eyes but wish i would have went to Green lake. I hear all this hype about the bass fishing out there, but every time I fish it, I eat humble pie.....

The topwater bite has been out of this world for me. Use a rattle trap to find em. Once there located get em on top. Thats the only thing they would hit last week. They wouldn't touch a tube, but attacked a topwater plug aggresively. It hasn't been uncommon to get 30 to 70 fish off a spot once you find em.

Anything in particular you look for to find the them? I just have been hitting diffferent rock reefs.

      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

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      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

          Barry is retired. I bought his boat and fished her unitl I got the 38'er. Team Crush is still using the old Whitewater.   Barry does work on my boat occasionally as the first mate.
