Couple Vids....

23 posts in this topic

I've been having a little fun with some eater size fish the last few days. Moving a lure slowly just off the bottom and getting that "bink" as the fish grabs is great!...Just like a little electrical shock coming up your rod and into your fingers. I'll never get enough grin.gif

I thought I had that spot pegged, till you panned on the creek coming in.

Upstream or downstream of Belle Plaine? wink.gif

I was out Fri and Sat and found a bunch of hungry sauger and eyes.

Tried down by Shakopee this morning and caught just about everything but a golden one.

31" channel sure is fun on walleye gear though wink.gif

I do like that rock! Went down there again yesterday...a little windy but they were hungry. I wish I could have made it tonight but it wasn't to be. Now its gonna be "beat the clock" after work from now on. There's been some action near the bridge in Le Sueur too and I get off at 3 o'clock (hopefully)

Some more teasers Jim grin.gif.....

Jim, If I remember right, last time we took a walk I (Did) suck! You outfished me three to one easy!.... Course that was trout and smallmouth. Neither one of us got that really big brown that took a look at both our lures for just a second then disappeared back into the dark water. I can still see that fish coming out to take a look......Next year for sure!.

Hey Bumble we're not far apart grin.gif

I got the chance to go perch on my rock this afternoon. Fished for about an hour before it got dark. Got two more nice saugers, one little wally and missed three or four. The bait is still there but the fish aren't feeding like they were (at that spot anyway) Took a little trip last week with da Fishhead and we did real well out of the boat.

I don't think we'll get much more casting weather now

Dude, this is fun video! You catch around Belle Plaine? (Bad luck, I'm thinking, for that little walleye, as the sauger swims away.)

Hi Larry! Unreal 1 is way cool. Unreal 2 is OK...I beat them both (without cheats) Playing your buddies online is hilarious. On UT 04, enter DARK30 in your "buddies" area and you can follow me to any server I'm on. Rob is "buzzbomb". I'll be on tonight off and on. You can e-mail me (in profile) and we can hook up.

Lock n Load!!

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
    • proguide
      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work.

Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul.
