This is the last week!! Were is the hot spot?

11 posts in this topic

Just wondering where everyone is heading and what the "word" is on the street. I have heard mixed reports on Benton (tried it last night without a bite), some perch and walleye coming off of Sarah (weather permitting), and lake Shetek. One other lake with some reports is West Graham with some 18-22 inch walleyes being caught. Lets here what others have to say. Give up your hot spot, theres only a few days left! laugh.gif

I'm going to slabfest so I will not be around. However, if I were to be in the area my house would be on Bloody.

I was on Winnie last weekend so a couple friends of mine took my perm house to West Grahm. They caught a few but no braggers.

With the local fishing I've been doing for a while, I'd definately be on Bloody, but then again what do I know?? Hint hint. grin.gif

Fished Louisa today from 7-1 and caught about 20-25 perch. Most fish ranged from 6-10 inches. We never caught any jumbos but did see a few from the "neighbors". Then we went over to Round lake and fished the sun down bite. Caught 15 walleyes and missed 5. All walleyes were smaller and averaged the 12-13 inch range. Overall it was a great day to get out and enjoy the nice weather.

A note to all of the FM members from SW Minn. heading to Upper Red. You guys picked a perfect weekend to head up North. I am sure many phone calls to the Mrs. will include details about being stranded up north will the storm and no way of making it home! cool.gif

Dude, unfortunately the roads were good enough to drive on to get home. frown.gif

It really would NOT have sucked to be stranded a day on URL.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
