Last week report...

6 posts in this topic

Headed up to LOTW Mar 2 3 4, and was wondering what's been happening up there. Heard some reports of the week before last, but was wondering if anyone has been up there more recent. Has the snow played a role in the bite?

Still able to find fish around that 20' mark?

Are the pike starting to go again...not just in key locations?

Any imput would be great.

Thought about going out of Morris Point.

Thanx smirk.gif

Fished over Pine Island yesterday in 28-29'. In between plowing out 2 houses, getting stuck 6 times, moving 1 house, banking, & fixing a broken hyd. fitting on the plow I caught a 17 & 16" eye, lost another heavy one, 8 or 10 keeper sauger up to 15", & 2 nice 12" perch from 8-4:30. Twice that many dinks & some ciscos thrown in to irritate me.

Had a Marcum set up on either side of the house & looked like I was at a Kornakova/Sharapova match. Had something working on one or the other most of the time. Don't think I had 1 fish show up to active jigging but would still lift or pound bottom every few minutes.

Many fish just showed up and then would have to be teased up 2-6 feet, sometimes 3 or 4 times before biting. Lots of them just appeared as a disturbance on the bottom signal & had to be teased up. Had 2 large marks that followed but wouldn't close.

Had on a small red glow rattle jig and a small green glow rattle varmit & shiner head. The green may have had a slight edge during the day but everything after 3PM came on the red.

Thought things would slow down when the wind kicked up but didn't seem to matter.

Thanks for the report...as I thought though things have been slow eh. No matter, the rest of the crew backed out due to weather, probabally for the best.

God luck to all you hardcore locals this weekend, I'm envious!

Thanx Dutchman for info... maybe I'll be back up around the 16th when the snow has blown off and melted?? LOL!

Thanx again smirk.gif

RoyalDutchman: Sounds like an intersting day for you all the way around. Sounds like a fish fry in the making though. We're getting hit pretty good down here right now, they're talking 12-21" possible. We're not far away from that. Stay safe this weekend, and good luck. Bill

Hey Terry,

I think you were more help to him than I was! I believe he was able to drill the next day but definately needed some factory support later. Hard to keep everyone staight but I think he is an FM'er.

Max, How'd it go with the auger?

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
