Monday 10/02 Report - West Side

7 posts in this topic

I had the pleasure of spending a night of trolling with fellow Pro Staffers Mark Stanley and Joel Nelson. We fished the west side Monday night/Tuesday morning, while not exactly setting the world on fire, we did manage some nice slot fish, a couple of larger fish and 2 personal bests for Joel Nelson. I will let him tell you about them smile.gif

Water temp was 55 degrees, fish were caught on the inside of the weedline, trolling speed was 1.6 to 1.87 mph and color preference was clown. HJ14's. 99% of our fish came off of rocks, with only one coming out of the weeds.

Funny thing is Joel was asking if we ever caught muskies trolling at night on Mille Lacs. We told him it happened now and again and less than 5 minutes later he tagged the muskie in the photo.

Has anyone heard anything as far as a day bite going, and where?? I would like to get up sometime next week and fish the afternoon and then stay out late and crank.

Please stop posing pictures of those rough fish! grin.gif I keep telling ya, running #14 is nothing but trouble. Sure they catch lots of walleyes, but they catch too many rough fish too!

      It's been dredged to 4'. The lake still has a sandbar. He did not dredge past the creek mouth

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes
