Last Tuesday we fished a mile or two out over rocks in 22' of water. We caught numerous 'eyes between 8:00 and 9:30 in the evening including a 28" a 27" and several 26." You don't need to go out that far to find big fish. smile.gif

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the night ban doesn't come off until Monday the 11th at 12:01 a.m.

Night closure: No one may fish for any species or possess fishing gear on the lake from 10 p.m. through 6 a.m. starting at 10 p.m. May 14 and ending at 12:01 a.m. June 11.

This means you can start fishing Monday morning June 11th, at 12:01AM

Hey, Geeksquad may have had another type of "fishing" he was referring to and he did clearly state his girlfriend was going to be on board. He likely isn't planning on having fishing gear on board. blush.gifwink.gif

That's another funny part of the regs...

You have to come in by 10pm Sunday night to get off the lake, and then wait 2 hours to go back out and night fish again after midnight. I suppose they have to make it a black and white line in the regs, but just thought that was a little funny as we will be staying up there during this time frame and probably fishing.... cool.gif

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
