Any reports East of the Narrows

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anybody has been fishing the east end of the lake? We are coming up next week and usually camp down in that area. Not set on any area, just looking for reports. Thanks

HI N.P.S.,

I DON'T FISH THE EAST END THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, AS THE WEST END IS AWESOME RIGHT NOW. I TALKED TO A GUY ABOUT 15 MINUTES AGO, AND THEY HAMMERED THEM IN 17 FOOT OF WATER IN MILD CURRENT LOADED WITH BAIT FISH. ALOT OF FISH... 14" TO 20". I DON'T LIKE USING THE XTRA GAS WHEN THE FISHING IS GOOD ON THIS END.

SINCERELY,

Where do you find current other than the narrows. Not looking for specific spots, just general ideas of what to look for. Is current important in fall fishing on Rainy. We always searched for reefs that were holding fish and worked them. Any tips on fishing Rainy after a front has moved through this time of year. Last couple fall trips we have experienced the worst of what this lake can offer. And fishing was about as good as the weather. But I still love to come this time of year. My wife thinks I'm crazy to keep going back this time of year.

Thanks, Doug

HI DOUG,

MY POINT EXACTLY, YOU SAID YOUR FISHING EAST OF THE BRULE, I SAY THE BEST FISHING EAST OF THE BRULE IS JULY & AUGUST. MAY, JUNE, SEPT, OCT & NOV. I CHOOSE THIS END. THERE ISN'T ALOT OF CURRENT ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE WE LACK MOISTURE. PLACES WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF CURRENT, WATER NARROWS, RANIER, LIFT BRIDGES, AMERICAN NARROWS, AND THERE ARE MANY MANY MORE, LOOK FOR PLACES WELL YOU HAVE HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF SMELT & BAIT FISH & ACCESS TO DEEP WATER & YOU WILL FIND FISH, THEY WILL BE THERE PIGGING OUT & GETTING FAT AS FOOTBALLS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
