Walleyedan's Guide Report

3 posts in this topic

Good evening,

Today was a rough bugger. I was over on Mille Lacs. We did not hammer them, but did catch some nice fish. We had 3 that were so close to the 20 mark that we had to send them back, can't believe how borderline they were, not about ready to even chance that idea. We also had some big mommas that went back as well. Too rough to run to the way out stuff. But let me tell you the Wave Wacker boats were taking a serious pounding. We had a group of 9 guides out on Gull yesterday and we all had successful trips, the fish were biting quite well on a number of areas. Lindy Rigs and spot tail shiners were the answer. The biggest fish were 18 inches, but the action was pretty much non-stop. One of our guides boated a 27 incher on Gull the other day and we also had a 36 in pike yesterday, both were caught on spot tail shiners in 14-19 feet. The bass are going pretty strong right now too. Water temp is probably falling with this weather, but it was about 67 last night. Mille Lacs was 63.7 today when I looked.

Have a nice weekend,

Walleyedan

Thanks for the report Dan.

We are planning on having a little outing tomorrow night with a few guys on Gull, but if the weather cooperates we might get to settle for martinis in the Hot Tub with the Chicas.

Come on Rain!

Crumpler,

Either way you win, those are good choices. Maybe if you move to the lake someday you can watch your lighted bobbers from your tub.

Have a good day,

Dan

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".

      What are the slop conditions looking like on area lakes?
