Early June trip

2 posts in this topic

I am coming up to LOW the 1st week of June and staying at Ballards resort. Being it will be our 1st trip there,what kind of tackle will we need to bring? How far will we need to venture to get on Walleyes? We usually do the same trip to Lac Seul, but we want to stay in Minnesota and give this a try. Any help or suggestions would be great! We are bringing our own boats and we do have a couple older guys with us so we dont want to have to run a long ways to get some fish for them. Any Crappies in that area that time of year? Thanks again!

The Gap or along the edge of the channel in the Four Mile Bay would be a good bet on that side of the lake around then. Just anchor and jig, jig, jig. You might also want to try REAL shallow along the edge of any weeds you can see anywhere along the shore from 4 Mile Bay out past Morris Point and westward. If you try this, you can try a ton of presentations like: slow trolling or drifting Lindy Rigs, trolling shallow running cranks, or anchoring and pitching a small jig/minnow, or slip bobber. Weather permitting, it shouldn't be too hard to find fish without having to travel far at all. Good luck.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
