Saturday Night Wind

13 posts in this topic

the weather reports show west winds at about 5mph starting just before sunset. with it blowing as hard as it has the last couple of days, the baitfish have got to be collected with the walleyes eating...

im writing this in hopes it will motivate me to get up there tomorrow.

i have put in at eddy's the last few times and fished that area. however, in years past i have gotten in on some great bites on the east and northeast side. its been a while though. with circumstances working out the way it looks like it is going to, i would save some travel time by putting in somewhere along the east side... ive got a 1890 warrior and with the low water im more cautious than ever. does anyone know if there is a really good access on the east side with deep enough water for an ol'foughy to navigate into the lake?

so, i know im not putting the boat up. hopefully it will be a few weeks yet for that. but, im still hoping for that little spark to ignite the eternal engine deep down inside.

regards,

Mnstuff, I'm heading up also tomorrow night to the east side. I'm going to try Hunters shocked.gif I hope it's deep enough. Agate resort is Ok I stayed there last weekend, but I just called there to book a room and they might be closed. We'll see if they call me back. Other than that it's slim pickens. I have a 2050 Skeeter brand new and I'm nervous also. Nothing like the sound of a rock on the bottom of that glass boat mad.gif There has to be fish just stacked on the East shore after all this west wind.

Good Luck

Guys,I put in out of hunters last week.Its shallow as you head out past the rock barrier,but not impassable.Stay close to the barrier as you pass it and head straight out,it drops off pretty quick.Also,I did see several 2050 skeeters and ranger 620s going out there ,just trim that motor way up for the first 100 yards .youll be fine......Good luck.....

Rodmaker, I went up wtih intentions of putting in at Hunters. Waited for the wind that was suppose to die down Sat night. Never happened so we went and landed at Eddys since the weekend before the wind took allot of out of me. Trolled for a few hours at Indian Point and nothing. Had one of the worst outings of the year with getting to close to the rocks. frown.gif I'll leave it at that.

Talked to a few guys at the landing who bobber fished in 28' of water south of Eddys and did well. We tried that first but never had a bite so we went out to Indian Point.

The people I had talked to at Hunters said they have been doing well trolling.

If the wind is ok I'll try again maybe on Friday night.

Skeetman,

Thanks for the report. I can't find anyone with any results on the East Side. I'll watch your new post. I would like to head up Thurs for the day bite.

Agate, Is closed till winter, talked to the owner last night when we put in. There is a pay box, there were 3 trucks there and he checked the box? No one put the $10 in there. He was so mad.

Very sad that they can use his access but not pay especially when the situation is what it is with very few good spots to land. Hunters is ok but with a west wind blowing in it can be tricky not hitting a rock when you go down between the wave. I wish on Sat night I would have known that he still lets you use the landing even though it's closed I would have landed there.

Skeetman.

so its still ok to use agate as long as you pay? i really am trying hard to make it up there on friday or saturday. ill have to wait to see what the weather situation is going to be for the best place to put in. skeetman, i hope you didnt bottom out that new boat. it sounds like the weeds might be the place to try now. 3 weeks ago they were still tall and not much action. thanks 18 for the pic of your crawdad...similar thinking, sometimes similar luck. as long as the roads arent salty, im not putting the boat up.

Yes Mnstuff you can land at Agate. And yes I did bottom out a little bit. blush.gif Small gouge in bottom however there was scratches from factory that they will have to fix this winter so they will fix this with with it for free. Could have been worse. My kicker prop to the most of it. I'm heading up Thur nite you should try to head up then the wind is suppose to be the calm for the only time this weekend it sounds like. Also snow crazy.gif Who knows with the weatherman. Last weekend was suppose to be calm to! mad.gif

skeetman,

its good news your boat will get fixed by the dealer.

i just checked all the weather and wind sites i have. tomorrow night looks pretty good, but i think friday might be better. thats what im shooting for. ill try to get there and be fishing by 4 or sooner, and stay until midnight or later...you know it just depends...haha.

the temps are cool this time of year, but its not hard to think ahead a couple of months, then realize, its still pretty nice! gotta dress for anything.

good luck to you. im sure we'll run into each other sometime on the lake.

regards,

minnesotatuff

      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

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc

      In northwest Wisconsin 26 hunting dogs have already been killed this late summer.   Already breaking the record of 23.  Be careful in the northland.

      I guess if you want it bad enough, you'll be there.

      "Oral" auction might be the law when it comes to this type of sale.

      At least one has most of the month of October to shop for recreational land.  Not like there's anything else going on this time of year! :grin:

      Thanks for posting, Rick.  It might be worth looking at that list.

      Thanks for the info!!! Will be up there on 10/5-10/8, have been looking at the weather and I hope they are wrong because looks like rain... Have you ever tried fishing out on pike island area? Brother inlaw drove down there this summer and said there were quiet a few people fishing there.

    • Minnesota motorists can support conservation with a new critical habitat plate featuring a wild turkey.
      The new plate displays a colorful tom turkey and is the ninth critical habitat plate offered. Other plates display a moose, loon, pheasant, chickadee, showy lady’s slipper, a fishing scene and two with white-tailed deer. There is also a specialty license plate for state parks and trails.

      “Wild turkey restoration in Minnesota is one of our great conservation success stories,” said Kim Hennings, wildlife land acquisition coordinator. “The critical habitat plates are a great way for motorists to show their interest and support for Minnesota’s fish and wildlife resources.”

      Wild turkeys are native to southeastern Minnesota, but disappeared by 1880 because of habitat loss and unregulated hunting. Successful reintroduction efforts starting in the 1970s led to turkeys now living over a wide range of Minnesota.

      “The wild turkey critical habitat plate has been long awaited for by our membership in Minnesota and turkey hunting enthusiasts,” said Tom Glines, National Wild Turkey Federation regional director. “We love the wild turkey resource and want to do everything we can do to keep wild turkey populations healthy and thriving.”

      The Minnesota Legislature created the critical habitat license plate program in 1995 to provide additional opportunity for Minnesotans to contribute toward conservation. Motorists who purchase a critical habitat plate pay a $10 initial fee, plus a minimum annual contribution of $30 to the Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM) program. Every dollar generated through the sale of the license plate is matched with private donations of cash or land. The annual $30 contribution is not tax deductible.

      Critical habitat license plate revenue has generated more than $59 million to acquire or improve 22,000 acres of critical habitat and helped fund non-game wildlife research and surveys, habitat enhancement and educational programs. Information about the program and details about how to order plates are available on the DNR website at www.mndnr.gov/plates.

      The new license plates are now available at deputy registrar offices statewide. For questions about ordering critical habitat license plates, call the Department of Public Safety-Driver and Vehicle Services at 612-297-3166.
