Whitefish

3 posts in this topic

Just wanted to know if anyone else fished Whitefish on Sunday. I normally don't fish on Sunday, and I wish I would have stuck with my plan. I think it will be the last. The people I had out were very nice and enjoyable to spend the day with. But, we worked our tails off and did not produce worth squat!! I ran and I ran and I looked and I looked and we only caught two walleyes, 3 or 4 northerns and missed a few fish. Gull on the other hand has produced some pretty awesome catches for us lately. The most recent was on Saturday when a guy boated an awesome 29 incher.

Go ahead, tell me how well you did yesterday on Whitefish. By the way, did anyone see the guys with the 6 marker bouys out? Temp. was 49.9.

I fished whitefish on saterday. Tried all the spots that have produced for me in past octobers. Tried from 10 feet to 75 feet(I was marking fish that deep.). Tried jigging, lindy rigging with redtails and some huge creek chubs. Picked up 4 or 5 smaller northerns and one bass. Any ideas why whitefish is so tough this fall?

Maybe it will get good in another week, did we hit it at turnover? I thought Upper had turned weeks ago though. I didn't spend much time on Upper, maybe I should have. Sorry, but glad to hear it wasn't just me.

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
