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.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
