Spring Break Pics!

6 posts in this topic

While almost everyone else I know was enjoying a sand beach or a nightclub in Mexico or the Caribbean. I ventured "up north" to spend some quality time with the family and of course on the ice. I figured I would post a few pics of our adventures. There will be more pictures coming as soon as I can scan my 35mm pics onto my flash drive. Also about 1/2 the pics turned out sideways...I edited them on photobucket so they were oriented properly, but they insisted on being sideways on the post confused.giffrown.gif So I guess you guys will just have to tilt your head or something confused.gif Enjoy!!

Day One, Crow Lake and my buddy with a nice 6 lb. laker

Here's one from the next day. We were on Lake of the Woods fishing out of Zippel Bay. Fishing was terrible during the day, but the evening bite was really good, with alot of nice 15"-17" fish.

Superblack, You could say that we got into a few fish. There were many days of catching and releasing, only a few did we bring fish back. If wanted to we could've brought back a limit on everyday, but its fun just to get up there, enjoy the scenery and spend quality time with friends and family.

Cedarnarrows guy.

Being stuck down here in Duluth going to school. I probably will not make it up there until open water, most likely in May/June. If the ice stays 'till Easter I will go then, but I am not sure with the gorgeous weather we are having...ice is going fast down here in Duluth. We'll have to meet up there this summer and chase some lakers/muskie/bass whatever, just as long as we are fishing!! grin.gif

Take Care All and Good Luck Fishing!!

Tearin', nice pics that really show the Rainy smorgasboard of fishing. You never know what's coming out of the hole.

Your picture of that pike didn't do it justice. I was just at a buddies place yesterday and hey got his new 41" pike mount back and it is huge (keep your hands inside the boat at all times).

Looking forward to more pics.

Hey great pics Tearin'. Looks like you had a blast!!! I'm not sure if I'm heading up this year but I always enjoy reading your posts. I'm heading the opposite direction tomorrow and going Largemouth and crappie fishing in Mississippi. Temps are suppose to be in the 80's so it should be good.

Take care and Keep the pics coming.

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
