Stupid Question

7 posts in this topic

Decided a last minute trip to the pond is in order. Are ANY of the resorts open tomorrow (X-mas). Looking for an access and maybe a place to stay right on the lake. Was thinking maybe Fishermans Wharf??

Pier,

Thanks for the info. I will call them on my way up tomorrow a.m. Hopefully on Tues they will be pulling out my 8 x 24 as I want to get it out exactly where I want it and be the first on the spot laugh.gif

Paul,

Along with Darrin at The Wharf,Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay is open too. And have a couple of cabins available if Darrin doesn't have anything available for you.

Fishing has been really spotty the past two days. I have been all over from Hennipin too 3 Mile. I am going to try the deep rocks today.

Fish are not active at all. Seeing alot of fish. But are very finicky. Dead sticks are being more productive than jiggin, but not by much. It seems the smaller the jig the better.

I did have some success late yesterday with a new technique.

I have a guided trip X-mas afternoon and this evening. Look for me out in the Wilcrafts.

Stop by, it would be great to meet you.

Merry X-mas!!!

Fish On!!!

Deadminnow,

I believe you will be you will be fine in the bay which would be just fine for a base camp with the possibility of alot of perch action and some late night walleye action.

We have a crack stretching from Doe Island to Breakers that is slowly healing up. It got cold last night 13 degrees. I haven't been out yet today but just be careful going across the pressure ridges.

I was all over yesterday from three mile to hennepin and seen ice conditions from 10 inches to 12 inches. But again there are some pressure ridges out there.

There are some smaller houses being pulled out by other resorts. We are going to take a look at getting our smaller houses out tommorrow.

Fish On!!!

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
