Weekend Report

6 posts in this topic

Well, it was opening weekend for waterfowl. Personally we saw a lot of ducks and geese early but when the season opened they had mysteriously disappeared. We ended up with one goose and a couple other opportunities for the weekend.

Saturday evening I went over to Koronis to give the walleyes a try for a few hours. I ended up catching 3 eater eyes and a couple of pike. One of the pike was a very nice one measuring 38 inches. All fish are still there as I already have a couple meals in the freezer. There were lots of boats out with the nice day. The fish seemed to start to turn on about the time I had to leave as I had an early morning appointment at the local duck slough. There were lots of shore fisherman and a few I talked to had been having some success.

So how was everyone else's weekend?

had a great time out at the cabin in the Belgrade area...my bro and I shot our limit of ducks on Saturday--mixed bag of BWT, GWT, Woodies, and Mallards

Sunday we ended up with 4 birds--a nice drake ringer, a young drake woodie, and 2 mallards (one of which had the full green head and was a giant).

Overall a great weekend to start the season. Can't wait for next weekend! Plan to get out around here once or twice this week also.

I finally made it to Koronis on Saturday. My son and I managed to catch 7 keeper walleyes, about 14-15". No big fish, just the nice keepers.

There were alot of boats out there, just a great day to be on the water.

Water temps were 57-58 degrees.

Went home about 1:00, fried up some fish for myself and Mrs. Musk.

Hit the Mississipe from about 2:30 untill sunset. Caught some smallies and a pike. Water temp was 65.5.

I was out on Lake Sarah on Saturday morning/early afternoon bass fishing. Pretty darn slow! Between my buddy and I we caught 10 largies in 4 hours. Biggest was a 4.5# pig my buddy got. Otherwise the bass were 1-1.5# average.

Beautiful day to be out!

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.
