I got the boat out!

8 posts in this topic

Today I was out on Union Lake in Polk county to check out some hot spots for Ice Fishing and came across a nice 3lb Walleye. It's sure going to taste good for dinner! Caught it on a perch colored rapala in 17 feet of water. I couldn't check out my hot spots because of to much ice on the lake but it was fun! Bruce Mosher

Yes, while my dad and I were trying to work our way north around all of the ice their were quite a few ducks sitting out in the middle of the lake on top of the ice.

It was fun to get out with the boat, burn some Sea Foam thru the gas and properly put the boat away for winter. Now I need ICE!!!!!

Well, I didn't get the boat out, but we are still river fishing. We were out Sunday afternoon and got a bunch of fish. Quite a mixture to, walleyes, pike, bullheads, crappie and catfish.

The thing is, most of the fish were small. A couple of 3-4 pound pike and the cat probably weighed about the same, but the walleyes were in the 10-12 and 14 inch range...we'er gonna have another shot at them tomorrow and I think that will about do it for the season....time to think ice fishing!

      From the fall Pelican Lakes Association newsletter - DNR Fisheries Update:

      You may have heard about the 454 adult cormorantsthat were removed from Gooseberrry Island this May by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Unit under a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  DNR staff looked at the stomach contents of 30 birds. Eleven of those birds had stomach contents including: 38 perch (mostly 4- inchers), 7 spot-tail shiners, 7 bluegills, 6 crappies, 1 rock bass, 1 pike, and zero walleyes.

      Thanks for the Update.  Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :):)

      They were really slow today. I fished hard all day and didn't manage much. Went over tons of fish and they weren't active at all. Should get better as the weekend gets closer...I hope

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.

      Dennis Anderson, Outdoor writer for the Minneapolis Tribune had a nice write up on the duck opener at Pelican. In addition there were some locals quoted on duck hunting there. Sounds like the ducks are back, and they have the water levels well under control.

    • Thanks Don! its a good time of year to be on the water!! :)
