On to the Lake

5 posts in this topic

I am out of here!!! I was told to take the rest of the week off, could sure use another another days works for the bank account... but opener preperation aint bad either. Gonna leave hastings about noon for the cabin N. of garrison. We'll be in that general vicinity for most of the weekend. Probably try some local pan fish lakes up tonight and maybe tomorrow, maybe hit up the Blue Goose, once or twice. I hope all have a safe and succesful Opener!! Say hi if you see me, most likely will be in my little T-14XL alumacraft w/ 20 horse johnson if weather permits. Other wise will have to talk buddy out of the wood shop to take out the yar-craft! Yee haw it's almost go time!!!!! grin.gifwink.gifgrin.gif

A little bird flew by and said that some of the north western lakes areas of Mille Lakes is getting some darn nice crappies.

I promised that lttle bird that I wouldn't tell what lake.

Fish On!!!

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
