second trip to the lake

6 posts in this topic

Hello all

This will be my second trip up to this lake. the first trip didnt go so good due to boat issues on the opener week end

Will be up this week end for sure and was wondering if a few folks can give me a little info or insight on fishing for eyes

What presentation has been working so far?

Looking at the map, I will be fishing around the moose island area to start. Any other good spots a guy can try?

Way Points?!?

A friend of mine mentioned a "Lost" lake close by but i cant seem to find it. Any info on that

Thanks in advance

way points? I doubt that you'll get anything that specific...

As far as presentation, etc... jig & minnow works well this time of year, you'll have to experiment with color, as some work better in some areas than others, but firetiger is normally a pretty good choice.

There's plenty of good fishing in Big Bay.. check a map and look for structure. there's an area near Birch Island that can be productive if the wind is right...otherwise, slip bobber a reef in the evening.

cldboater,

You really do not need to ask for waypoints. Finding the fish on your own is more fun than driving up to a spot dropping anchor and getting your limit. This lake is filled with good sized eaters. Look at your locator till you spot them and have at it. smirk.gif

well thanks to all that replied. Had a blast out there this week end.. caught a lot of nice fish but had to let them go due to the slot limit

in which i don't really understand , but that a whole other discussion

Did great fishing around moose island there.. right at the end of birch point.

As far as presentation. a simple 1/8 oz fuzzy grub tipped with a rainbow minnow was the ticket. Limit out every day. Even on sat. Preppy crappy out but still had fun

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
