Finally going to make it up there

12 posts in this topic

I can't believe how fast one's calendar can fill up during the summer.

I usually make it up there 4-5 times a summer to visit family, fish etc.

This will be the latest as I'll be up there 6/30-7/4, staying at the Bay.

I will have my small 14ft alum with me and mostly fishing alone in the early morning and evening. If anyone is interested getting together or also alone looking for some company let me know.

I'll fish for anything, but wouldn't mind targeting muskies for a while.

Just confirmed my room, can't wait to get away for a while.

I just don't know what I'm going to fish for....

What seems to be cooperating lately?

I'll probably just anchor in front of Muksy Tom's dock as I know there are NO fish there wink.gif

The bug hatch seems to have shut the walleyes down at least for me anyway. I would try for some smallies.

The last couple of days has been very slow for me too. tongue.gif

Just to many bugs for the walleyes to eat right now!

THere were very few bugs on the water this morning and I did not see many clouds of bugs on the bottom.

Maybe they are just about done! tongue.gif

Cliff -

What is, if any, the usual lag time between when you don't see anymore of the bugs and when the walleye fishing picks back up?

Hey Dtro if you see a couple giddy guys without wives and 2 year olds in a big red Skeeter swing by and we can compare notes...From the sounds of it we'll be fishing bass and maybe a little muskie fishing...If you see us WITH wives and 2 year olds maybe swing by and make sure we have enough beer left.. grin.gif We will be spending all our time on the East end..

I'll keep my eye open and try to do my best to keep you supplied if I can help wink.gif

It will be easy to spot me. I'm sure I'll have the only boat that says "Catcraft" on the side grin.gif

Casey. Shoot me an email if you want to go fishing sometime this summer. Mayflies were still hatching last night but not as many. Some midges starting. Eyeballs should pick up soon. smile.gif

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
