Anyone out on Byllesby yet?

5 posts in this topic

I was thinking of taking my son and the boat out on Byllesby to get some crappies or roughies if it ever dries out a bit. Anyone having any luck out there yet?

made it out there last weekend (4/6). Went out with a few friends. Everybody was bundled up and the wind was blowing pretty bad. Cruised around the lake some, and then stayed on the west side by the park. Didn't throw out any bait, guys were complaining too much. But i threw out a few lines to remove the memory out of the line.

Was more of an opportunity to get the boat out and open it up, now its already to go for this weekend. Hoping to hit up some faribault lakes or Bylesby again. Might go by myself, so i don't have to put up w/ all the complaining.

p.s. Should also note that they had the dam opened up on byllesby and and the current was flowing pretty good, but there wasn't as much deprise in the lake as i was expecting. *But still be careful.

I got out Mon 4/16 for a few hours in the evening. Water was around 45. I marked fish suspended at 6' in 8-9' of water but couldn't get them to bite. It was good to get out though, hopefully they'll get hungry as the water warms up.

Ventured out on Byllesby on 4/27. Made it out there at 4:30. Cruised around for a little bit, no one else was on the lake. Water levels were down some, west side was pretty shallow. Had lines rigged with 1/16oz yellow jigs with crappie minnows. Dropped the lines down 4' in 6-8fow. Tossed the lines towards some fallen logs and branches. 2 min of sitting, bobbers started to drop. Pulled out 15 crappies in a couple hours between two of us. Most were 11-12", but a few just under 10". Released them all. Highlight of the day, was unintentionally pulling in a 24" eye, which released immediatly.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
