Awful quiet over here

4 posts in this topic

It's been pretty quiet over here in the Rapids forum, so I thought I would give you a shout! Has anybody been having any luck lately? I have been out some in the past 2 weeks, but I have been busy with projects around home. Iced a few nice late season walleyes last night-was a blast! Most people had their houses off the lake already-I was about the only one out there. Last weekend, had a successful Crappie day on Sunday with a nice limit of 11-12"ers with a few walleye and a 9" Bluegill in there also. The week before I iced a 22 lb Lake Trout-I really feel like the bite is picking up now with the warmer weather and hopefully, we will have good ice until the end of March. I am going to try to make it down to Pengilly before season end to fish for crappies-I don't think I am going to make it back to Red this season. Hope you have a good remainder of the season!

It's been slow for lake trout up here and all of the fish I have been hearing about have been pretty small. There have been a handful of fish over 10 lbs, but not too many. I think when the weather makes a big change, things will pick up. I might go out this weekend for lakers, but I am not totally sure- I have some new spots to try.

Later,

Justin

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
