10/25 update

4 posts in this topic

Just arrived at Borderview Lodge. Heading out for the afternoon bite. Heard the morning bite was tough. Will be trying to get out to the gap this afternoon and will report on any success, or lack there of. Any similar types of updates would be appreciated. Good Luck.

try the church or up by the airport by Baudette. Reports of bigger fish are coming from further upstream.

ccmonsr, thanks for that tip. We fished just outside the gap from 2:30 to 5:00 with virtually no action (couple of bites). Moved to off wheelers point in 28 fow and picked up a few until dark. green jigs seemed to be the ticket. we'll try up the river near the church sometime tomorrow.

Any other reports out there?

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
