Crane, Sandpoint, East Namakan results

1 post in this topic

Did anyone fish Crane, SandPoint or Namakan (east) for the opener? If so, how did you do.

I/m the self appointed scout for the Skinny Minnows fishing group. We are coming up memorial weekend. We are the guys who play music at the voyaguer houseboat lodge every year memorial weekend friday. Was the fishing good? fair? poor? shallow? deep? We would really appreciate any tips and/or direction to produce at least one shore lunch. I'm the trip cook (thus the nickname hopsing)and the guys are getting pretty darn tired of beans and weenies. not that there is anything wrong with beans and weenied but have you ever been in a houseboat with 8 guys who have eaten beans for a few days. so....any and all fishing news is welcome.

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.

      Rented a sleeper out on Garrison Bay Sunday night with some friends. Fishing was slow but we managed a few walleyes. Best went 23" on the rattle reel. Was a lot of fun though, wish the bite could have been better. How is everyone else doing out there? Any good bites or has it pretty much slowed down for everyone.     Here is a video of the trip:
