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.

      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.
