Sunday - 2nd Day Open, 2nd S-L-O-W Day...

5 posts in this topic

Spent 10 hours yesterday and 7 hours today on the Croix. Today was worse then yesterday. At least I saw "ONE" Walleye caught yesterday out of a Ton of boats, luckily I got 2.

Today, I saw "Zero" caught, luckily I caught one 17". That's it. Hmph!

Most all fish marked were in 14-17 feet, nothing shallower, not much deeper.

Could be the "Nice" weather, but who knows for sure.

I'll hit it again in the Monday morning.

I'd say give it a week and things will take off. My guess is there is a bit of post spawn blues going on. I caught a sauger last week that was milting yet while fishing for white bass so we may have the tail end of the pawn going with a bit of a lag before the bite picks up.

How was the crowd today? Did you fish in the spots as yesterday? Not sure if I am glad I stayed home and finished the yard or not. confused.gif

It was a smaller, later arriving crowd. I fished the same places, plus another couple spots. There are probably several factors why it's slow, but they gotta be biting somewhere! smile.gif

I'll hit it again and take off to some other places shortly after if it's slow.

See ya all out on the water...

Tim, sorry I wasn't able to meet up with you guys on Saturday. I did have my phone on the boat but it was in the glove compartment and I didn't notice you had called until I had the boat on the trailer. I spent most of my day below Prescott on the Mississippi withour a whole lot of success. I did manage a nice fat sauger (still swimming) and about a 5 pound sheepshead (also still swimming). Other than smashing my finger in the tiller as I was lowering it the day could not have been better.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
