14 posts in this topic

Anyone know the ice status?

Jason? I'm looking in your general direction.

Hi JP, The general report that I've been hearing from Hubert is 9-11 inches. But you know how ice goes, I'm sure that there is more or less in some areas of the lake. Overall it sounds like it is in pretty good shape. Good Luck out there.

Careful of the pressure crack on the west side. Saw a wheeler go through last week.

Alrighty then. Stick to different lakes.......what is up with these lakes this year. I think they are just hungry and looking to swallow up people and things.

FYI! The pressure ridge is about 20 yards off the Access from what I could tell it is about 75 yards long. Saw a few cars out. I chose to walk. Didn't have a bite.

Thanks, It looks like the lows next week are going to be in the teens and below. How many inches are out there right now? If I have to bring the portable I guess I have to. I built a house on wheels and have not been able to get it out yet. The only problem with portables is when you want to spend time with more then 2 people, you have to fish in separate houses. Has anyone been catching any walleye's out there? I used to catch several when I was at home. Never limits, but when you got one it was larger then 3 pounds.

10-11 in. ice, but its not uniform everywhere. There are some ice ridges around the access. If you have ATV with a hitch and a house on a trailer a lot of people are pulling the larger houses out that way. Theres always a few wallys in Hubert. Heard some ar geting crappies but there elusive, have to look for them.

I weighed the house and it was 3100 #'s. I do not know what they typically weigh, but with that and a four wheeler it would probaby be as much as my suburban. Are they fishing the usual spot. I can remeber when I was a kid there used to be tons of houses out there now there isn't more then 20. Wish I lived up there, but you have to make a living or be retired.

Here is a thought. Make a living up here. Just a thought.

Sorry, I didn't mean to put down anybody. I see there talking below zero weather for lows at the end of the week. My dad went out there last night for the first time and caught a couple northerns and lost a walleye. He said there's only 6 houses. Has anybody tried on the bar towards the middle of the lake, straight out from the boy's camp? I caught 2 nice walleye's out there once.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
