Well...from what I have experienced...there is no bite what so ever. My wife and I just spent the weekend in Spicer, and fished Green. The only thing I got, was a smally out of about 32 fow. That was for about 12 hrs on the water. I have tried Belle & Minnebelle too....I got the same thing there...nothing. Talk about bite...

I was out about 1.5 weeks ago and reported on my afternoon at Erie, but that's the last time I've fished in the Hutch area. Was on a lake near Mankato with some guys and we tied into a number of nice walleyes ranging from 18" - 22" with one boasting a very hefty 28.5". It was a crankbait and rattletrap bite trolling and retrieving around 1.5 - 2mph in 2' - 6' of water over gravel & rocks. Water temps were from 42 degrees on the south end of the lake to 49 degrees on the north end.

Not that the Mankato area is close to Hutch at all, but wanted to mention that crankbaits and rattletraps in shallow over gravel produced pretty well...and it was a daytime bite.

HutchBucks, I agree, no posts in the Hutch forum means no one is LOOKING for the bite, they've already found it. I havent even got out latley, too much hunting to do, especially with pheasants open now, I think this area is one of the best in the state for roosters this year. Couple that with a bunch of ducks being around and having to at least show up a few days a week at work, man there just isnt enough time in the fall to get it all covered.

I better plan on getting out before deer season or it might not be till early ice. We shot 8 roosters saturday so I guess we can afford to get out to Collinwood, since it is only about a mile away from my house.

If this is the best area in the state for pheasants than the rest of the state must be pretty bad! I may not even buy a license this year here as I have better stuff to hunt out west...way out west. I suppose it would be different if some private land is available to hunt.....that whole "who you know" thing is prevalent around here and the WMA's are laughable.

I hope to get the boat out this weekend if the weather cooperates but I'm not holding my breath. I haven't heard a thing about the 'bite' lately.

Combining corn, shot a deer sat. night, and building bunks in the new fish house dosen't leave too much time for fishing this last weekend.

Not to mention a person could be duck hunting, pheasant hunting, goose hunting, heading up north to hunt grouse - wow I love fishing as much as the next guy but I fish hard for 9 months and hunt hard for 3 - Ohhh when I bring down the lottery I will post a different story.

went to Jennie tonight, and guess what...I have got to be the worlds worst fisherman. I can't get a bite for nothing. Raps, lindy, big minnow, small minnow, worms, 3fow, 12fow, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. I have tried and tried...no fall bite for me this year. I think it's time to put it all away and get ready for ice fish'in.

P.S. I might be willing to let someone show me what the heck I am doing wrong. smile.gif

LIMITOUT-I didnt say THE best, I said ONE of the best, seems like there was a much better hatch around here than other places. I do pheasant hunt almost strictly private land though. We dont hit much public throughout the year, maybee after all the corn is out.

Dave, maybee try a different time of day??? I dont know.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
