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

      Spent past 4 days (and nights till 2am) on Ottertail one wheelhouse and 4 portables. Bite was next to (0). 5 guys 4 day got 5 eye 14" to 17" and 6 perch 7 to 10". Friday -21 on the lake at 3pm. Pressure at 30.90. Did not move a lot but did some moving 30' to 9'. Saturday bit warmer day made it to 11 deg. Same result moved a lot humps, breaks valleys, 40' to 9'. Marked lots of fish in deeper water and some at 9 to 16'. Resort owner talked to half dozen other villages on west end, All having no success. Pressure never got below 30.28 but temps warmed to upper 20' on Sunday. Not a banner weekend but sometimes "that's fishing" Took a fall on slick icy parking lot week ago, found out today I have 3 fractured ribs. No wonder my right side hurt a bit.

      I've had issues with my Eskimo Z-51 reopening holes, getting caught at different parts along the hole ON occasion. Other times it ripped right though. So my answer pretty much sucks but from experience they aren't the best at opening holes.

      Very nice weather to be out chasing Walleyes/Saugers. Some extra special good news in this video wrap up
