LQP Update

Recommended Posts

outfishedagain

Was on LQP last night. The bite has slowed way down. We only had one 15"er and snagged about a 20 lb. carp. Water very dirty, thanks to the wind. We fished north of the Milan bridge, did see two other walleyes caught off the bridge.

hows the water level on lqp? two weeks ago when i drove through big stone refuge it looked like there was a lot of water still needing to make its way on through.

WALLEYEDUDE2001

Heard about 22+ lbs won, some zero'd, 1 - 4 fish for some, with some teams coming in w/6. Biggest fish I believe was about 9 lbs. Was out there this week end trying to stay out of their way & fishing area where no tourney boats were. Took pictures of a 29 1/2" that any of the boats would have liked but not another boat within a mile. Did see a couple nice 4-5 lber's caught on the north end.

The twin bridges area looked like a boat dealership. Pretty close hand to hand combat with only the "lucky" ones getting fish.

Sunday morning was cold & breezy.

Wow i haven't fished LQP for 4 years now due to the fishing pressure it receives. How has it been hitting? Last time I came around there it was freezing cold with 20 mph winds, no fish were present I just thought that fish were never in there anymore due to fishing pressure. Looks like some of you guys have been catching a few but it's still been slow eh? Thinking about coming back this year and giving it a shot. Been fishing around in the Central MN area for eyes on the Rum and Sauk River doing fairly well. Did manage to catch a MONSTER Eye about 29-30 inches on Sauk but it got away no net hehe its okay that thing would have been on the wall if i decided to keep it. But yes let me know how the fishing has been for the past couple of years. The Lake itself and the dam thanks guys!

I see you said you had been fishing the Rum River... How did you do as far as getting some walleyes goes?? I try the Rum all the time for walleyes, but it seems that its few and far between, still enjoy it though, not many people target eyes' in the Rum!!

Eh the walleyes on the Rum are very slow. For some odd reason maybe I'm not using the right bait. But everytime i've gone out there maybe just 3-4 Walleyes a day, they are in there just dont really know what they are hitting on. Been throwing out mimic minnows (firetiger, perch, bluegill, minnow, goldenshiners), Gum drops tipped with leeches and minnows, etc..... they all produce but its once in a while the eyes will hit it. I'm kind of stumped on the eyes on the Rum but everywhere else seems kind of less hard you can say. And yeah, there isn't a lot of fishing pressure on the Rum for walleyes which i find is odd. As for LQP looks like no one is giving feedback? the fish must be below normal levels this time around too eh? gaaaah fishing pressure sucks anyways yup.

Yeah thats my experience on the Rum... Never a consistant walleye bite on anything... As far as LQP, no one really ever talks on here about it, got my 'eyes out there last weekend for opener and hit the rocks the day after and gotta a few, I know the Milan bridge is slowing down, but I'm thinking I'll be out there over Memorial so I'll see how it goes!

Fished sunday 10 till 8:30 and picked up a few walleyes and a couple of white bass but couldn't find any crappies on the bars and was wondering with the high water they might be going into the brush to spawn, wonder if the water is warm enough yet to spawn?

Ahhh so how high is the water level? I mean we've been getting some pretty odd weather raining, cold, warm, cold, rain... etc.... This is all making the fish act weird lately. And im sure with the rain that has come through the water level stayed the same probably? Hmmm if all goes well maybe i'll come there over this weekend and give it a shot. Wiether i catch any fish or not.... hey oh well im enjoying it.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.
    • IceHawk

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
