Little Boy - Wabedo Reports?

32 posts in this topic

I'm not big on the opening day circus, so I spent the weekend primarily getting chores out of the way so I can get on the water after the circus pulls out of town. That doesn't mean I'm not curious about hearing reports on what went on or is going on out there! Thanks in advance for your postings.......

yeah, I was on little boy and just about everywhere on the lake. I live in muskie bay so I get to spend lots of time fishing it.

Things are still the same. I fished Wednesday night and Thursday. Caught 11 walleyes but only 4 were over 14 inches and they were just over. The rest were around 12. Seems that the females have not put on the feed bag yet after the spawn. Seems a bit strange with the warm weather. You would think that they would be going by now. I did have one nicer fish on Thursday afternoon but she threw the hook. (yeah, I know the big ones always get away...)

The muskies are moving. Had one around 24 inches chase my crankbait when I was casting off a dock. Actually boated a 28 incher that hit a rainbow on a spinner.

Plan on making my 7th trip to the lakes on june 15,16,17 my friends and i go every year its about a week later then normal but i cant think the lake could change that much we are staying at little ponda resort this year. Any info on the resort or lake for that time of year would be great. We fish for everything and don't keep any except panfish and not to many of them

I had some decent luck tonight. Boated 10 walleye, 8 13-14", one 19" and one spawned out 25" female, all of which were released. Big shiners on an orange and yellow jig took them all.

Fishing should be pretty good when you get there. Ray and his wife are very nice people and Ray really knows Wabedo, so squeeze him for current conditions and suggestions. Have a great trip. I live accross they bay from them.

A neighbor and I ventured out to LB for about an hour on Saturday night to find gale force winds blowing straight down the lake and upper 30's to low 40's temps. I think the windchill must have been in the 20's. We drift fished (probably too fast) the 17-10 foot range and caught 2 and missed a number of fish that were tail taggers in the fast drift. I would have set a drift sock out, but hate to do it that shallow and with our trip being short and with the cold temps..... Well you know..

Last weekend the water was 59.5 just about everywhere on LB and there was no problems going between Wab and LB thru the channel. All size boats were going back and forth. Also, fishing was great!

Seen several musky there isn't any walleye in either lake smallies and sunnies were on there bed. saturday was perfect for being on the lake. Largemouth were all over on the points going into musky bay. Largest smallie was 4.10lb biggest musky was about 40" (seen not caught)

wondering how you did over the weekend. This BB has been pretty dead. Had some panfish luck near the weeds and some walleye on Lindy Rigs and crawlers nothing on leeches. Don't fish for northern but caught a few on the spinner action in front of crawlers. Anyone else? Or is it so good you won't report? Keep you knot tight and your line fresh.

Spent the past 7 days up there and didn't do very well at all. Some small northern. Didn't see a muskie. 2 walleye. Also fished Wabedo, Boy & Mule w/ very little luck. Must be bad fishing as there is no chance it is my fault grin.gif

Has anyone been out and if so, any reports? I don't care what it is with the exception of those over abundant rock bass..... I just need something pullin' on my line!

I'm going to be in the area for a week (My Bachelor Party is the weekend of August 18th) I was thinking about hitting Wabedo the Day before... Does/can anyone give me any tips...

I'd like to get into a Musky or some Walleye if I could... But Smallie action would also be fun...

As I understand it... From where I'm coming from the I'll be launching out of the South Landing on Wabedo.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Considering going back to Wab/LB in late September for muskies. How was the fall muskie bite last year?

We hit it the weekend after the big coldfront in mid-October and only raised one fish. Didn't feel like we got to see what Wab/LB is capable of so we're debating a return trip or heading elsewhere. Thanks in advance.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
