Pine Island report 03-12 to 03-15

Recommended Posts

kais24

Got back last night from fishing in the Pine Island area. Went out on Adrian's road and boy did they point us in the right direction. We fished 18 ft of water and caught some nice ones. Within an hour and 1/2 we caught a 28 1/2, 29 1/2 and a 31 incher! We fished out deeper during the day but didn't do that well. We caught our limit of and put back a lot of nice eater sized walleye but came up four short of saugers. We probably caught 50 fish for the trip (which isn't really fast and furious for LOW) but those biggins sure made it worth the drive.

Adrian's road was OK. Quite a bit of water our first and second day but then the cold weather came and really helped out. Pulling a retractable wheel shack was SLOW GOING! It was pretty bumpy. I'm sure the roads are much better now with the snow they got and the colder weather. Adrian's was out there constantly working on the bad spots and re-directing around the giant puddles. Off road travel was pretty much anywhere you want to go with 4 wheel drive.

I'd post the pictures, but I'm not very computer literate and I've tried before with no success. I could e-mail someone them if they can do it for me...

Shiners worked better than fatheads and as far as color...keep changing. Every color seemed to work but only for a little while.

For those headed up I'd call Adrian's and check on conditions (roads that is.) The fishing conditions I'm sure will be awesome.

My wife and I are heading up for the 22th, 23rd, 24th. Are looking forward to a get away. 1st trip up there this year.

What does Adrians charge for access fee for truck and wheel house? Sounds like you had a good time pulling line against the nice walleyes.

Thanks for the good report!! smirk.gif

Wingnut: We will be at Riverbend Resort which is right next to Adrians. We will arrive on Wed night and fish Thursday and Friday, possibly Saturday. I will also be on the hand held radio channel 3. Looks like we're headed to Knight and Bridges Island on Thursday, and Friday is open for bids from the fish at this time. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Shadyzr: Sounds like lake travel cross country improved quite a lot since the big snow, so you should be able to get off the beaten path to set up. Adrians will certainly have an idea of how deep to might need to fish. We're headed to the islands on Thursday, not sure yet about Friday. good luck on your trip and hang on. Bill

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
    • eyeguy 54

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2017 expire Wednesday, Feb. 28, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Licenses for 2018 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2018 fishing licenses become effective Thursday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2017 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. This year license fees increase by $3 for a resident individual angling license, and fees also increase for other license types including deer hunting licenses, sports licenses and lifetime licenses. License fees support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. “Thank you to all who purchase a license. License fees pay for the work we do and the dollars go directly toward improving fishing and hunting opportunities in Minnesota,” said Steve Michaels, DNR licensing program director. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. Customers are encouraged to update their customer record online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. Adding an email, while not required, allows the DNR to send important hunting and fishing information, and gather input through surveys. More information about how the DNR spends license dollars can be found at mndnr.gov/LicenseDollarsAtWork. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      A youth paired with an adult can join other youth-adult pairs to learn the basics of fly fishing from experienced instructors from evening on Friday, April 27, to afternoon on Sunday, April 29, near Lanesboro.  “Youth and adults in these classes are both beginners so they can learn to fly fish together,” said Deb Groebner, a regional specialist with MinnAqua, an educational program of the Department of Natural Resources. “When they finish the weekend, they’ll be ready to take on more fishing adventures for a variety of species.” To participate, youth must be 11 to 17 years old as of April 27, and adult and youth must each have less than 5 hours of fly-fishing experience. The registration fee is $130 per pair and includes meals, lodging, guiding services, equipment and additional materials. Sponsorships to offset registration fees may be available from angling and conservation organizations. This event is limited to 20 youth-adult pairs. Apply online. For more information, contact Groebner at 507-359-6049 or deborah.groebner@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
