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?

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

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
