Hittin' the water Wednesday

4 posts in this topic

Any word on the bite so far? I'm putting in at the bluffs. Walli1, if you see this, do you think the spots we fished will be good tomorrow around 9 or so? I don't have time to run up and get some redtails. We are going out with minners and probably grab some suckers. Just plan on jiggin'. I'll give a report when I get back tomorrow night. If the bites slow I will probably pull out and hit a metro lake.

Hey Sandmannd, You know that area I took you to and caught those fish, find that tip and work that steep drop, I sent a friend down that way yesterday with the gps spot and he did really well using gold jigs tipped with a fathead, if you see a red skeeter with a WI in the front, say hi to Jim he lives in hudson, he usually fishes around the 94 bridge area, we trade spots and info. I'm hooking up with him this saturday morning for fun and fishing, can't wait! grin.gif

Went out on the bluffs launch at 11AM. No luck, didn't even track any fish. Saw some bait fish but that's it. I couldn't find the steep drop, trolled looking though. Good news is my new boat is waaaaaay better than the last one. I now have a 16.5 foot Alumagraft Navigater with a 75hp Merc on the back. The other good news is Blue Ribbon bait has Redtails!!! Tried redtail on a snell and also jiggin fatheads. Couple of small bites, but no fish. We were out for 4 hours. Maybe wrong time of day. Anyway, I'll just have to try again.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
