Adrians 2/24 - 2/25

3 posts in this topic

We fished all day Saturday and Sunday morning until 12:30. We ended up with 15 Walleye's and Saugers. Nothing big but good eaters. We did okay I guess considering the weather.

The highlight of the trip was someone from the resort caught a 14+ pound Walleye while we were there. I think they said it was 14lb 4 oz but I am not sure on the ounces. The person working at the resort showed us the picture. It had a huge belly.

Wayne, were heading up this weekend, out of Adrians. Do you care to share any more info, like how far past the island, depth, any magic lure, river shiners or fatheads?

Thanks

I am not sure how far past the island but we rented one of their houses and it appeared most of them were in a row. The Walleyes seemed to like the fat heads better than the shiners. I do not think the sauger cared one way or the other. We caught most of the fish Friday morning I think because of the weather.

I used everything in the box but they liked best a round glow jig. I had one of these on a pole at all times. I do not know what they are called but they are simple round jigs about 1/4 ounce. I would not call the color white it is kind of a very light yellow/green.

We used the shiners from the resort. They give you about four dozen for 7 or 8 dollars. They were on the smaller side but seemed to work okay.

We were in 28 feet of water.

Hope this helps.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
