In one of your posts you mentioned you live on Kelly/Dudley, With the pike regulation (release all under 30") for quite a few years now. You would think that the lake would be loaded with decent ones, I don't find this to be true at all, just a few small ones. This goes for the bass too. Do you know if there are any number of decent fish & they are more elusive because of the clarity, depth & massive amounts of cover? I experieced this on Reeds too (also regulated) fish here & there but not what you would expect with regs in place, providing people abide by them.

Input from anyone else?

Thanks, L2f

They are in here wink.gif I pulled a 33"er a few weeks ago jigging for crappies.

I personally have had better luck on the Kelly side (boat launch) with a big ole sucker minnow and a bobber, off the deep hole where the weeds come up to the south, in about 8 to 14 FOW. I have also caught a few large bass this way...which kinda of surprised me.

On the Dudley side, left of the channel, I have 2 favorite spots, and have done very well for pike n bass. Next time you come out to this lake, give me a shout, I'd be happy to show you a few things about these lakes.

I wanted to thank you for you're reply & invite, we did get over there before I read you're reply & did have some fun. Got a really nice bass a short distance from the access & as I landed it I heard a noise & it was some people sitting on their deck watching the fight clapping. I showed the fish & let i swim. In the course of the evening we caught two more bass & 3 pike nothing big, but fun. I did have one on that felt very respectable, but it got off, ah well, another day. I'll post when we come again.

Thanks again, L2f

My son & I went to Roberds a few weeks ago & I couldn't believe there was no sign if the grass island there!! No old stubble or new emerging sticking up at all. Nothing going on that day there. So what were you having a blast with? L2f

Bass in the docks like no other! Average was around 16". Had 3 about 19". A few on a chatterbait. Lost the biggest bass of my life in a tree. frown.gif We had 1 dock that produced 8 fish! Close to a 30 fish day. Amazing day overall. smile.gif except the sunburn...

      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.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      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!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
