Choices...so many choices

3 posts in this topic

My group is wondering where to fish June 12-16th. We are staying on Big Jessie with Tim and Rita. Should we concentrate on Jessie, Bowstring and Sand or make a few trips to Big Winnie? We will have 3 1/2 days to fish. It has been years since I have open water fished this area. Any suggestions on which lakes to hit this time of year would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Having those choices is a good problem. Some vacationing people are not so fortunate to be able to access such good/great fishing lakes with in a 20 minute radius.

I am assuming you are trying to target walleyes, if so, all of those mentioned lakes should be good choices during mid-June. Tim will help point you in the right direction on Big Jessie. If things are slow, don't hestite in moving to a new lake during the same day. Bowstring and Sand Lake are with in 10 minutes of drive time from Big Jessie.

I would definately target at least one day on Winnie and/or Cut Foot Sioux. Choose the less windy day (need some chop) so you don't get blow off the lake.

Another favorite choice of mine, for early June, would be Moose Lake, north of Deer River. Good luck and let us know how your group faired.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
