minnows

4 posts in this topic

went out friday nite up on the north end. tried trolling raps for a few hours over the rocks, in deeper water (22 ft) and then went in shallow ( 8-12 ft) and then tried even shallower (2-4 ft). nothing, however my buddy and i when we got back to the landing noticed the minnows in 1-2 ft. you couldn't see the bottom, there were millions of them. they looked like perch, but my buddy thought they were walleyes, they were greeen with vertical dark bars, and had whilt bellies. just wanted to let people know that if there were that many the eyes shud b in shallow after these guys. right?? i was just blown away by the sheer numbers of them. anyone else have any luck this weekend trolling?

They are small perch, the boat harbors and shallow areas are FULL of them this year.

I didn't fish Mille Lacs this weekend

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
