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.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
