The Gap, the River, the grouse?

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any good intel on the Rainy River bite, or anything on how the fish are going in the Gap? I've heard the shiners are definately in the river, which means the walleyes should follow. I'm just curious about what people are catching?

Also, has anyone been chasing grouse out around Birchdale, Pine Island Nat'l forest? Lots of birds, few birds, leaves mostly down? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I'm just about crawling out of my skin in anticipation for my trip up there next weekend! grin.gif

With the BIG Wigwam fall classic tourney going on this weekend good intel may be tough to get till the weekends festivities are over eh! I am sworn to secrecy! People are catching Walleye, Sauger, Sturgeon, Pike, and Crappie here and there though.

Come next week folks won't be so tightlipped I'd reckon.

Enjoy your trip Sam.....fiskyknut

Can't help you on the fishing end, but in the Fourtown area the grouse hunting has been great.

GOOD LUCK

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
