Smallies

4 posts in this topic

Here it is for all you bass guys out there. We made it out yesterday afternoon for about five hours, not as long as I would have liked, but long enough to shake down a pattern. The smallies are starting the move up into the shallows. All of our fish were prespawn males starting to make the beds. Most of the fish came from fishing senkos over 6' of water. A nice slow presentation was all they needed yesterday. Look for this upcoming weekend to be a banner weekend if we get some nice weather. It seems that a few days of stability has helped the fishing alot.

Take Care Guys and Good Luck Fishing!

Here are some pics from the other day...

Irvdog, yeah we were wacky riggin' 'em most of the time. We're heading out again tomorrow with a friend that has only fished smallies once. Hopefully we'll be able to find some nice smallies for her. I will give you a report afterwards.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
