Well I can tell you where the fish aren't. They deffinatly aint out bittn' on Cedar. My dad and I fished for 4 hours with only one sunny to show for it. It probable didn't help our cause that the cold front came threw just before we got in the water but I was expecting a few to throw in. That's why they call it fishing not catching.

Anyone else have a report for this weekend?

(Not) Good Fishing

Well, We went out on Buffalo fri. night @ 8pm til midnight and yes we found the eyes, and 11" was the biggest and no we didn't keep any. The wind was something of a challenge.

Tried to go to SCHMIDT Sat morning but I see the posts are in the ground again. I would like to know if this is a lawful access or not. Because I think i helped pay for the eyes stocked in the lake w/ my license fees! Sorry just frustrated. We ended putting some time in on pulaski. Worked really hard for rockbass, yeah!

I believe the water line can't be closer than 51 feet from the center of the road. If it is, someone needs to call the sherriff's office or contact Rick Reller at the DNR.

Good luck with that one! Perhaps we should pump some water in it from Green Mountain! smile.gif

Schmidt, does not have a legal public access. This came up last summer also about, if it was legal for the posts and a fence. Check DNR for stocking. It may have been used for a rearing pond?

Schmidt Lake is not stocked by the DNR and is has not been used as a rearing pond. It is stocked by the private landowner who gets a permit (most recent in 2006 (1,000 fingerlings).

There is no public access to the lake. Survey maps show that the right of way at that point is 100' (50' from the center). The landowner has the fence placed correctly on the right of way boundary and has the legal right to keep it fenced and posted preventing access across his property. Therefore, anglers are not entitled access to Schmidt Lake.

This seems to be an issue every year. Hopefully, this clears up that subject and saves some people some tickets.

Thanks for the info. I was thinking it would be a nice lake to take my 3 yr. old. it looks protected from the wind. we will find another, no big deal.

No problem for the info. I understand wanting to keep a 3 yr old busy otherwise they lose interest fast. My nieces are the same way. Good luck getting your kid hooked on fishing. We need to recruit more youngsters into the sport.

Happy Fishing!!!

From what I have heard, the schmidt boys don't pay much attention to posted signs when it's hunting season. I know for a fact that they took a deer on posted land 2 years ago. I have no problem with them posting their land, just stay off others posted land!

Fishhawk,

I agree with you. I'm just stating the legal facts about what they can do.

It sure would be nice, if we all would just obey the laws. grin.gif

happy fishing!!!

The birds must be transfering fish from buffalo to pulaski. The last week only little walleyes 10 to 12 inches. I'm going to give the smallies some sore lips this weekend.

Jim - are you saying that birds are catching walleyes out of Buffalo, carrying them to Pulaski, and letting them go?? And the fish are staying alive during this process??

Mo Gator, I'm kidding about the birds. confused.gif Just that lately, I have been small walleyes alot like what has been coming from Buffalo. May have to start keeping the snot rocket pike. (17-21) inch pike just to help thin the population. MMMMMM pickled fish, crackers, beers and a evening fire.

Less then 2 hours for smallie fishing, on Green lake.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
