South Lindstrom Lake - Sat. Opener

12 posts in this topic

My husband caught this 29" Norwegian Walleye today....just kidding.... My wife and I were fishing South Lindstrom today and I caught this Bowfin (Dogfish). What a blast to catch! It measured 29 inches and was caught in 7 feet of water using a slip bobber, hook and minnow.

Nice fish, jighead! I usually just shake those things loose with a pliers. You're a real man for picking up that prehistoric beast. Thanks for the pic.

You should cut-em open and let them go for the turtles. They eat eggs right out of the nests.

I have to admit, we forgot the net so my wife had to land it with her bare hands...she thought the thing was going to paralyze her arms if she touched it!

You didn't mention the rows of little barbwire-like teeth to her, did you?

This may be just a silly rumor but...

I heard that they sort of "bark" or make some kind of noise with their lungs...Do they?

I have heard them make some pretty awful noises when out of the water. I hooked into one that was about 5 lbs on Chisago one time and they put up a really good fight. But thats about all they are good for.

I caught about a 4 pounder on an UL panfish rod, that was fun. I landed it with a net and wouldn't even lift it into my boat. I had just given it the spring cleaning and no way was a slimy dog fish gonna ruin it.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
