The 2007 season so far!

14 posts in this topic

So how has your 2007 fishing been so far? I am not asking you to give up your favorite lakes or hot spots just wondering how you have been doing with this very windy and unstable weather changes daily that has been kickin our butts. We have actually only had 3 good days of fishing luck around these prairie pot holes of SW Minnesota so far and am hoping for a more stable weather pattern to help us out. Live baits on spinners has been our best bet so far.

Mine started on big Stone. Had a good time. Fishing was tough but we caught a few. I've had a few good days on Sarah, Shetek, and Bloody. I agree, the weather, more like the wind, has been tough to deal with. I have time to let the wind die down, however. I melted a piston on my boat motor Saturday night. Soooooo, I'll be doing an overhaul soon. frown.gif

I have had a great year to date. I have the luxury to fish just about anytime I choose, sooo, the wind doesnt bother me that much.

To date, I have a 11.5# walleye and I also caught my biggest sturgeon at 55.5 inches. my crappie fishing has been a little slow to date but, my cat fishing for channels and flatheads on the river has been good too. The wind doesnt really affect me on the river.

I hope others are having a good start. smile.gif

I've been picking up a few nice walleyes on Lake Okabena in Worthington. Trolling shad raps or casting raps into shorelines. Did real well on spirit lake a few weeks ago. All in all a good start to the season! I wish the wind would stop blowing!

Don't fear Bill, the wind will die down next weekend when the windsurfers get to town, never fails.

I havent been online for awhile but I have been out fishing. Went to Hanska on opener to run the boat for the first time after getting the carbs cleaned. Me and my son caught a few eyes and sunnies.Found out later the eyes were in the creak. Went up to Ottertail the next weekend and did good on Friday,then things went down hill from there. Major rain Friday night,winds kicked up Saturday morning into 30 mph sustained by late afternoon. 4to5 ft rollers put us on the boat lift for the night.Next morning I had to pump out the boat because the winds shifted to our side of the lake during the night to make 7ft rollers. My motor wouldnt start because water came into the tank through the vent on the side of the boat.Ended up towing boat to landing. End of trip.

I didn't know there were any fish left in Okabena, except catfish.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
