Labor day weekend!!

I think the limit for walleyes should be 3, my reasoning behind this is that I always seem to get that number, redtails 0 crawlers 3 eyes plus a mixed bag, hard to believe nothing would take a redtail, O well thats fishing, fish came from around bait pods, found the bait and worked the areas around it, lindy riggen as usual cool.gif

Was it busy out there Walli? With the nice weather there had to be a bunch of boats out there.

I was wondering if it was just me,cause I blanked on eyes using redtails last weekend.I wonder if the water is a tad to warm for them to turn on to the redtails yet?Im living on your fishing stories this weekend guys lets hear more smile.gif.Walli1 did you try any trolling today?

The river was busy as ever today specially as the morning went on, I did try bottom bouncing for awhile, pulling gold spinner on one rod and silver blue on the other just a sheep and a rocky, man is there bait fish again this year, I still think last year had to be the most I've seen in years but then again my memory isn't what it once was. Really looking forward to next weekend, boat traffic will be cut in half I bet, next saturday I may go out of my comfort zone and fish above the Kinni, I did say may, will see smile.gif

Took I guy to the river today but sad to say it was not the croix, it was close to the head of the apple river some where around 17 miles from taylors falls, I guess its good for muskies, we caught alot of perch and two snot rockets one of which was pushing 33" cool.gif, fish for a couple of hours and socialized, tomorrow its back to the croix I'll be heading out the door around 3am, picked up some fatties at blue ribbon and a couple more dozen crawlers, can never have enough bait smile.gif I'm going to be jiggen most of the morning, Ok jigging and a dead stick with a crawler on! cool.gif

Gold jig and a fatty worked good before the sun came up, managed to put 4 decent ones in the box before 6am and added one more around 7:30 and that was it, stayed till 11 trying everything possible to put one more in the boat but nothing, all five fish came from the same area in 12 fow, all on fatties cool.gif

I guess I am going to have to wake my kids up earlier. We dealt with the boat traffic and fished the sunsets on Sunday and Monday with only one smallmouth to count for our efforts. I tried south of prescott, but traffice was just too crazy for my first time there so went where I knew the river. First time I didn't pull up at least one walleye or sauger.

Walli, glad to hear you might try north a little in preparation for the beanies tournament. Your posts are always good reading. I've been out mostly between Lakeland and Afton this summer weekdays with mixed results, generally bottom bouncers with spinners. Thanks for the heads up on the jigs, been waiting for that!

Looks like this saturday morning I'll be heading up by the hudson area to do some fishing, I think its around 17 miles from hubs to the 94 bridge, should be a nice boat ride, hopefully I can find some areas holding fish, I only have one gps spot above the kinni and thats around the black bass bar area, I have over 20 gps areas below the kinni but thats my comfort zone but its time to expand my range and find some new areas,should be fun scouting out a new area of river, so if you see a old red lund going all over the place it just me looking for spots that hold fish or could hold fish at different times, actually bottom bouncing is a good way to find fish and locate structure, one eye on the rods and one eye on the graph looking for gems along the way! cool.gif

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
