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

      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

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
