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.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
