Washington?

4 posts in this topic

It's been quite some time since I've seen any reports for fishing on Washington. I'm planning to hit it on Saturday afternoon targeting pannies in the early afternoon and walleyes late in the day.

Anyone been there lately and have any info to offer?

Look between Grassy Island and the Boy Scout Camp in 15 - 20' of water for both 'eyes and crappies.

I would really look for the crappies on Washington.The eyes from this lake were pretty lame this past summer.I would look where you usually start your first ice fishing and you should do well.

Matt and I and a few others did very well on those crappies this past year and I am sure that the majority are still swimming. smile.gif

Thanks guys. I'll give those spots a try, although I'm not entirely certain where Boy Scout Camp is, but have a rough guess at what/where it might be.

My guess is the crappies might be suspended over deeper water right now, but there are a couple spots somewhat shallower that I'm going to look at also. Fishin' for pannies from 2 - 4pm, then going after the walleyes for the last couple hours. Regardless if I catch fish or not, it'll be a fun outing and with the deer season this weekend, I'd expect the lake to be pretty void of boats. smirk.gif

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
