Report from Wednesday 6/13

Had a good day yesterday. Put the boat in at Cedar Creek and fished by Hennepin Island. That access is VERY shallow. Picked up a small one there, and then it got too windy for the boat we were fishing out of. We took the boat out and trailered down to Isle, and I was glad we did. The wind was coming from the southeast. We found a good drift just outside the Isle access and to the west, maybe 20 yards or so off the bouy markers that are along that shoreline. 17 - 19 feet deep was the ticket, dragging a leech with a 6 foot snell and red hook. Ended up with a limit of slot fish from 16-19", a couple that were over (around 22"), and one little dink. It was a great day to be out.

Awesome!!!!!

I probably had my best day ever for big fish yesterday grin.gif

Fished the mud. Leeches.

Caught one 28 1/4", (released and personal best). one 27", five between 26 & 26 1/2", Two of us caught 19. (I was on fire catching 15). Only kept two 18 inchers. The other 6 fish I caught were between 22 & 25".

Used my G. Loomis 9ft med action Steelhead IMX spinning rod an an 11 ft snell. Plain red hook and a chart bead grin.gif.

I'll post photos next week. It was a blast!!!! grin.gif We had the camera ready all the time. We kept the fish in the net, removed the hook, took the photos measured and released.

I was like a little kid at Christmas time!!!!

Probably will never have another day like that as far as large fish goes.

Fished the mud tues and wed with my two little nephews, man what a blast. Caught roughly 60 eyes with the majority around 24-25 inches. My nephews couldnt believe it. Also had a muskie on for an hour and twenty minutes finally broke off. Just really nice getting little ones on fish. They had a ton of fun. gl

Thanks for the report. Myself and two buddy's are heading out on the pond for the first time in a long time. It is a bachelor party of sorts. He didn't want to go out to the bars said he would rather go fishing so we are heading out tomarrow morning about about 3:30am should be fishing by 5:30am or so. I bringing them to the flats, is that the best place for that early in the morning? or should we hit up some gravel? at about 9:30am or so if we are of rocks or a reef I think we will head to the flats. Not sure which one as I have never fished them before. I have a GPS with lakemaster chip so finding them won't be hard.

Do I fish on the flat it self or on the edge of them?

I have been heading right for the mud as soon as I get there. Most fish I have found are along the break, top or bottom. Good luck and bring lots of bait.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
