Fishing Report - 6/4 - 6/5

7 posts in this topic

Fished Winnie all day both days.

Water temp: 62-63 Degrees

Marked quite a few on the "big bar line" both days...

On 6/4, went to a lot of places on bars and did well - a catch and release day...

On 6/5, got creative in an area on the West side and it was "like taking candy from a baby..." Nailed them. Limited out in short order - all 15 to 15.5 inch Walleyes.

The Shiner fishermen were pulling up just small Perch.

The Launch came through where I was and they caught nothing but Perch, lucky it was a short period of time I did not catch one when the Launch was passing through or they would have been all over me. I hooked one shortly after he trolled by, so I turned my boat away from them and scooped it up without him seeing it.

Kept catching Walleyes on Leeches only.

Even though I am back here in Iowa and just have to read how you all are doing on Winnie, the memories are still fresh and its like being there!!! lol

Nice job of concealing yourself from the launch FFL. I know that feeling of being the first to start the action going and then everyone joins in. Most of the time its not bad and everyone can get their share, but there is always one or two that spoil the party!!!

Welllll... I better not say. It's kinda of a small area and Walleyes congregate there. It can be a feast...

Us old timers (yikes!) (I've fished Winnie A LOT since 1965...) know about it. Sorry, nice try though... wink.gif

I looked for your boat, but didn't see a red pro-v.

That's great! Sometimes they bite one one bait in an area and another bait a ways away.

The Shiner run has about started, so the Walleyes came in for them.

How 'bout the Fish Fly Hatch on Wednesday morning....

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
