Basswood (June)

2 posts in this topic

B-Dubbers-

Anyone fish Pipestone/Jackfish in early June?? We typically go up over the fourth but this year do to a couple of little fishermen on the way in our fishing part, we are moving our annual trip to the beginning of June. I am guessing the walleyes will be relating to the current still and the mouths of some of the bays?

Do you think the smallies will be up on their beds?

How about Northerns?

Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

It would be hard to answer your questions because of many factors. It looks like the ice will be out within 10-14 days, maybe sooner (barring a cold snap)on small lakes. The water temp will rise faster this year unless we get some rain, since the water levels are very low. If conditions remain the same (low water) the walleyes will most likely be heading out to the reefs, and the bass should be on the beds. With rain and higher water, the opposite may well be true, as the water temp will be quite a bit cooler. I know these are vague answers, but it's the best that I can do at the present time!!confused.gif

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      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!
