North Center

2 posts in this topic

I was out at North Center today from about 10 til 2 looking for walleyes or crappies. Probably not the best part of the day to be out, but there were quite a few other boats out there. Any FM'ers out there this morning and have any luck? I got 1 8" dink walleye on a jig and fathead in about 18 FOW on a moderate break. Also had some shiners I tried with no luck. I mostly was vertical jigging along the breaks (like 16 to 23 feet) and tried very slow trolling with a lindy rig a little too. After the sun came out more, I tried a bit shallower (up to 10 feet or so) looking for crappies thinking the the sun might bring them a little shallower and probably cause the eyes to dissapear, but nothing happening there either.

I guess I'm pretty new to fall fishing, but I'm trying to learn, thanks to everyone on the forum. What else should've I tried? Maybe I just got there too late?

Try to find some remaining green weeds and work the edges, or even in them. You should find a nice mixed bag of fish wink.gif

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
