  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot. Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...
  4. Yesterday
  5. Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough. Dick
  6. Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

    And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
  8. I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs. It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.
  9. Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook. It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch! Unfortunately I know what those are like. Both getting them out of myself and helping others! You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though. Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better. There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
  10. I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....
  11. Last week
  12. The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container. The one in the picture is from the alive container. Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
  13. Gulp crawler. In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers. Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
  14. When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory. To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed. Not catching muskies though. Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
  15. Vermilion might be down a little, but not much. Your lakes might be different.
  16. Is that a gulp worm? I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.
  17. My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.
  18. i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/
  19. Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!
  20. Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

    I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more. Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!
  22. The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

    If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky. And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade. Night time might actually be a better option.
  24. below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
  25. Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
