Labshack on private waters!

20 posts in this topic

Labs4me is always whining about "to many poeple", "poeple are crowding me", I don't "want to pay the road fee" so on and so forth so we moved the Labshack to a PRIVATE little lake today so he could have the peace and quite he desires. It was a small investment on Labs part for his own lake with his own access and his own massive school of river chubs to fish but as the selling party I feel he will be very happy on this "cozy" lake. Trouble is he will need a bridge to get to it...I'm thinking the golden gate deal will fit into his budget. grin.gif

He must feel pretty lucky to have friends like you guys, I mean to give him his own lake, set the house up, drill holes and you must have turned the heat on right????

If there's pheasants in those cattails he'll be in paradise. He'll never come back.

You can put an ice shack anywhere and people will think its on fish. Watch out! Masses of fisherman with portables will be surrounding the LabShack now! smile.gif

Looks like PARADISE to me! Boy I can't wait to get back up there and POST the perimeter of my 'new hotspot'!!! No crowding then...

And all the river chubs I could want? I guess I'm opening a new bait stand to boot... HMMM... I wonder what chubs bite on? I say Kelly should make sure all the welds are tight on the skids and they can double as pontoons and I'll have a houseboat to boot for the summer! grin.gif Good thing you didn't try it with the wheel house... I don't know if it would've ever made it back out, and I don't see parts laying on the ice! grin.gif

You guys crack me up!

Last time we were on Petrowske waters this time of the year, it was to 'fish out' an ATV and an overserved buddy... 'course that was Petrowske Creek and not Lake Petrowske...

With friends like you guys............. well it just brings tears to my eyes!!! tongue.gif

Good Luck!

What is really frightening is that Jon is so much like Kelly.

Hows the access getting on that lake? Is it o.k. for a full size 4x4 or should I bring my snowmobile and portable so I can be a little more mobile??? Oh and what depths are you catching fish? Lure colors, time of day fish are biting, etc all appreciated.

Sheepeople! Now that's funny... grin.gif

Jon, when you put the labshack on that lake, did you drill the holes out??

Just wondering if you needed an extension?? grin.gif

"A" extension? We had to put three together to get through the thick stuff over the deep hole!

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
