Eel Pout ?

7 posts in this topic

Say a guy was crazy enough to go fish for these things, where would he go for a decent bite? I caught one up on LOW last weekend and one guy in our group cleaned and cooked it. Now he is crazy and want's to eat some more.

Help us try to cure him of this terrible desease and tell us a spot so we can get him over this.

Thanks.

no problem!!! wink.gif glad to help. when I'm in my perm up there, can't go a night without a rattle reel going off and having a slimer on the end. I'd love to learn how to clean them and try and cook 'em up, I've heard how good they are!! the secret will be to try and catch perch, then you'll get pout, if you try for pout, you're likely to catch eyes!!

Hey mnfishinguy,

I already posted this question. Check my post "where to catch eel pout". You'll see that Ryan V responded with the same comment but a couple of others posted with a few spots to try. We'll see you up there next weekend. Looking forward to watching you and goin fishin put up the coffin. grin.gif

Ahh yes, the coffin. Great to fish out of but it sucks to put up in the wind.

I am going to try to get out of work early on friday. Maybe 2:30 or so. I will need to talk to goin fishin and work out the details. Have you talked to him yet about the plan of attack on Friday? Not sure when you would be able to get out there on Friday and what you would like to do.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
