The 2007 season so far!

Recommended Posts

ricbak

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.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
