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 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!
