LOW report 2/11 - 2/12

1 post in this topic

Six of us fished out of Bayview. Very happy with the resort fish houses and cabin, friendly and helpful staff too. We had two fish houses for the six of us, but they let us jump to a few of their empty ones too, so that gave us some options without having to be real mobile or portable.

We kept 24 walleye/saguer and 4 jumbo perch. Threw back a few small ones, but most of what we caught were over 12". We did get a 17" sauger, and threw back a few slot walleye, the largest being 25.5". The typical LOW gold worked best for us, then pink/white. Bite was slow, and light. No bobbers or very light setup was best for us, a few fish were caught lightly jigging. Agressive jigging and the fish left the Vex screen. We were 10.5 miles out in 34' fow. Fish may turn on once the weather warms, mostly below zero for us with highs in the single digits. Sunny and little wind did help. Hope this helps.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      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
