Fishing report 10/06/06

10 posts in this topic

Well the plans to hit Mille Lacs Friday night after work fell appart due to the howling wind. Instead I went to the ROCORI footbal game and headed to Koronis afterwards. The wind was much more manageable there. We found water temps to be very consistent at around 55.7 degrees. We had steady fishing throughout the night. Lots of 15-22" walleyes and several pike as well. For those looking for shore fish opportunuties they eyes are up shallow in current areas. We saw lots of them with the floodlight in less than a foot of water.

Good Luck!

Borch, you are to quiet. That can only mean one thing, your hitting the walleyes on Koronis hard. So, are you getting them before dark or chasing them up shallow at night?

Well I'm getting some fishing in. But after a house fire this summer my time has been pretty limited.

Like most the area lakes there's a good but not spectacular bite on Koronis. If you put your time in you'll catch some fish. wink.gif

Come on guys!

I had some company out on the lake last night so I know I'm not the only one getting out to fish in the past few days. Fish are going good on several central mn bodies of water right now. For me last night fishing was pretty good. Caught my biggest eye so far this year. A very fat 28 1/2" piggy. Man, the fish pack on the weight this time of year. All catch and release last night as the bigger fish were up putting on the feedbag. I only caught two keepable fish in the 15-20" range. Water temps were around 54.5 degrees.

I also noticed a few large rafts of divers on the local lakes. It should just continue to get better both with a rod or a gun in hand.

How are other folks doing?

Borch, what are you using? Are guys working the rocks around the islands? Will be out on Koronis Sunday the 15th. It could be the last open water trip of the year. I want to make it a good one.

Thanks

I was out Friday for a couple of hours and fished the islands. That was about the roughest water I've been on. Major rollers out there. I did manage to catch a decent nothern trolling. The wind was so strong I couldn't tell if it was the wind blowing my rod or a hit when live baiting.

Guys are working the center flats, windmill point, stonegate point, the islands and just about every shoreline.

Good Luck Sunday. It's a duck hunting and housework weekend for me. I'm heading up north for a fishing trip over MEA. I'll definitely make a few more trips though around St. Cloud before ice up.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
