Fishing Lately?

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

Has anyone gone out lately -- during the rain period? I am going to go out tonight if it does not storm. Any thoughts on where we will find fish tonight -- as far as depth.

Thanks

marc

Nope not been out since just before the tornado. I am saving myself for the walleye slaugter that is going on on Mille Lacs. My Brother, Father and myself are going to Mille Lacs next weekend for 3 days. That should be a good time. The gal at the resort told us that she could not remeber when the walleyes were biting as hot and heavy as they are now. I cant wait.

Well I went out to Pelican and it was one of the few times I was shut out. Nothing was biting. I tried deep and I tried shallow -- no luck.

Not a rockbass, perch or northern -- much less an Eye. I thought the weather might mess us up and it did.

We got off the lake at 9 p.m. due to the weather looking really nasty.

Yeah, Mille Lacs is definitely tempting right now... We found a bonanza out there for the opener as well this year! We had 40 fish in two days that averaged 23 inches... No kidding. That lake will be my favorite lake to fish very soon I have a feeling... smile.gif

I have been out everyweekend since opener and it was great up until the last two weekends (talk about the dead sea). Just like you said... it got to be where I was marking BITES on the ol gps. I tried everything and nothing seemed to work, so I tried fishing areas I have NEVER fished before and managed to catch a decent number of walleyes (outside of the slot) but they were definitely not where they usually are (I found them along the weedlines in "non-structured" areas? Then, I was out all day and caught three (questionable) keepers last weekend only to come in at dark to watch a group of guys landing endless 16'' walleyes off the dock IN 3 FOW! I have all but gave up on the ol' walleye holes. Man it was fun the first couple of weekends though!

Well it sounds like the fishing is a little difficult right now. We are heading to Lida next week for our annual family vacation and it sounds like the usual spots aren't producing right now. We will just need to work a little harder I guess. I will share our results with you. Thanks for your posts guys it makes me think about fishinbg Lida even when I can't get there to fish it myself.

I fished Lida 2 weeks ago. From the Public Landing head out and turn left around the corner. 15-40 fow trolling deep raps wokred for me. If you go a little further there is a little bar there were it comes from 30 fow to 15 fow. I saw some people hanging jigs off the bar and the seemed to be having luck. Be careful of the slot limit though. A lot of nice fish being caught in the protected slot. 17-26" think.

Thanks Paul. That spot usually produces well for us this time of year, we will definately give it a try. I can't wait, we have a lot of fond memories at that lake. I will let you know how we did next week. Thanks again.

I have fished Lida every weekend and last night for that matter. Clay point (where you are talking about) has officially died. I will keep you posted if it picks back up. I did catch one walleye there last night that was about 10 inches, but that was the only bite I got. I didn't try pulling deep runners? But, jigging, spinners, lindy rigs...etc. don't work as well as they did a few weeks ago. The fish did seem to move a little deeper?

Was out on Pelican tonight. Tried several spots. varied depth between 23 and 14 feet. Caught several Rockbass, a couple of snakes and 1 nice 17" Walleye.

Caught on a yellow/green lindy rig with a leech at about 1 MPH in 19 FOW.

Beautiful night on the water.

I think bobber fishing may be successful as areas up to 17 FOW have weeds to the surface.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
