Saturday June 9th FM LOW Get together

14 posts in this topic

The date is set. We will fish out of Warroad this year.

Mark it on your calendar and clear the weekend. A

discussion on who brings what will follow as the big day

gets closer.

Timing is good, the fish should be biting. I hope we get

a big crowd.

Curt, have it cleared with the boss, where would you recommend staying for the weekend? First time going out of Warroad and need some help. Would like to make it a long weekend and stay at a cabin versus motel if possible. Thanks!

Springsteel would be the closet resort that rents cabins. After that you would have to go East to Rocky Point, Long Point, and Zipple. You would be looking at about a 15 minute car ride to Warroad. If you stayed at Rocky, you actually wouldn't be to far from the areas that you most likely would be fishing.

C'mon up. Worst case scenario I can tow you around behind mine on the tube. Just remember you're not bass fishing, so when you catch one, be careful for the teeth and fins, or you'll end up having to use the skis. J/K, we'll have room for ya.

My fishing buddy and I plan on heading up for our first FM event ever. Don't know if I can get any work done next week thinking about it. Hope to make some new friends and listen to a few fishing yarns to boot!

Curt, Lumppy and I will be there. I'm going to try a new recipe for baked beans. Will bring chips and dip also.

Saw the picture of the new addition. Sweet!

Can't wait to get out of town. Looking forward to putting a face with the names. Can we get an FM banner from someone?

Steve (et al)

1. Let's have the radioes tuned to 8.

2. The two fish fry plan will only work if we have enough fish for the first one by one o'clock at the latest, and we're confident we will have enough for round two. Personally I don't see this being a problem. That being said we should plan on being back from the afternoon shift by 8 pm at the latest.

3. The public access is located just past the casino. When you get to the stop light at Riverside Bait, which is right on the Warroad River, turn north. Just follow that street, and you'll drive right to it. Directly across from the ramps in the river is a sand bar that you'll want to watch out for. You can see it, so you won't have to guess where I'm talking about. On the way out of the channel to the lake, point your boat(s) right at the blinker (red marker), and don't turn left or right until you reach it. There is shallow water on both sides. You can start fishing right there if you're so inclined. The fishing was quite good there this past weekend. I've been drifting or slow trolling spinner rigs with crawlers, minnows and leeches. They've all caught fish in different areas where the other two wouldn't, so you'll want all three. Just work back and forth from about 8 feet out to 13 or 14 until you find where they're at. Crankbaits will probablly catch fish too, I just like to use live bait as long as possible. Another good spot lately has been up at the South Tip of Buffalo Point. When you get to the Blinker, look straight out and a little to your left. If you see cabins etc, you're looking too far west, that's Springsteel. South tip is further away to the northeast of Springsteel. Aim your boat at the east end (point) of the land, and hit the throttle. Once you get out a ways, you'll see a bunch of boats over there. There is a shelf that comes out from the point. The top is 6-8 feet, and it drops off to 12ish. Try working from the top down and off the edge a little ways, or visa versa. This was definately one of the hot spots this past weekend. There's a fair chance that the weeds will be holding a good number of fish by then too, but you have to take it real slow, and be very careful not to bottom out if you're going to try this. Getting in some of those spots with this low water can be a little tricky. Weather permitting, I plan on trying a couple of these areas right away in the morning if you want to follow us in. I was out on Friday night and found some promising spots, that I know how to get to. If there are some bigger waves, we'll be heading up to South Tip.

4. I am in Lot 85, which is behind the campground office. When you are leaving the boat landing parking lot, turn right toward the shower/bathroom. The temporary fish cleaning station will be on your right where the pool was located, you can't miss it. When you stop there to clean fish, it will easier if you just leave your boats parked between there and the stop sign, and walk over. I'm about a block and half straight through the stop sign on your left. There will be a red Suburban parked in the driveway. A person would be able to park out back if you enter through the alley.

5. If any of you don't have my or Curt's cell number, please email me at mneyecatcher at yahoo.

      if this is the lake I,m thinking about isn't the only access thru a farmers yard that owns a little meat processing plant??????

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      locke lake by hasty off 94 was 90% open tonight!!!!!!
    • eyeguy 54
      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.   
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
