Sunday Action

Recommended Posts

Iceman73

The action was pretty good yesterday. We caught a handfull of nice fish (22", 2-25" and a 27 1/2"), and saw lots of other big ones being pulled out by other boats. It was definitely as advertised, the mudflats had good action, but they were all big ones, no keepers that I saw. Leech was the ticket for us. Thanks for the info on the previous posts fellas about the chart bead and red hook. That's what produced for us.

My thoughts exactly Rodmaker! Buddy and I had a blast, even though we didn't catch a ton of fish, every fish we did catch was a beauty and over the slot, perfect! That's why I fish Mille Lacs, for the big ones. Kudos to the DNR for their management of that lake, nothing like pulling up 5+ pound walleyes all day long (assuming you can find them).

NO GO. I spent the weekend buying a crib. Let me tell you, I would have rather been fishing. The little guy is going to be living better than me. But its like the wedding, you just bring the credit card and keep your mouth shut. That or I will never fish again.

Your'e right. I remember those days. Just enjoy them!!! They grow up fast. We have a Senior graduating form Gustavus next year , and our youngest is going to be a Freshman at Irondale HS.

Maybe, and if your wife gives you an"you deserve a break and go fishing", give me a call.

I'll Post my Fri results Mon. I have photos from my 6/13 trip that should be showing up in the next day or so.

She does no my alias, but I she thinks that we are all mentally ill for talking about fishing this much so she never checks up on me. She is a psychologist so she might be right. I call it passionate, she calls me obsessed. Oh well. Here is the kicker though. I got an invitation to come up on Thursday, however I was told No because I have to save my vacation days for the baby.

Sounds like our home. They say the same. I think I'm both passionate & Obsessed for sure. Seems like everytime I'm driving home from a day there, I'm thinking how soon I can get up there again. grin.gif

It's all worth it once the little one is here. Of course that is easy for me to say since I made it out this past Sunday and has similiar results. Between 3 of us we had over a dozen fish in 4 hours, and only 2 keepers. It wasn't fast and furious but those big ones are fun to catch. Not many lakes you can catch big walleyes in the middle of the day in 90 degree heat without a cloud in the sky. grin.gif

I wish I had the same luck as you. We went to about 8 different flats and managed 1 23 incher, then headed in to garrison reef and got a 21 and 25 right away. No keepers.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
