Fly Fishing Ideas

Recommended Posts

buzbunni

My buddy and I are gonna hit the Upper for awhile on Sunday morning for smallies. He's a fly angler; I'm not. As he is looking for suggestions on flys,etc. to bring, I thought I would see if anybody had any ideas.

Thanks. Good luck out there.

A white wooly bugger is good or a small (14) dark nymph fished very slow on the bottom---you want almost everything to bounce on the bottom. Don't tell but we have been doing well with a #2 hook and plastic curly tail. I use a 9 wt.

You don't say if your buddy is fishing wet or Dry? I am assuming he is going after Smallies? Tell him to head over to Thorne Brothers in Fridley. Their Fly Fishing shop can set him right as to what is working this time of year? I personally like a Muddler Minnow fished top water, myself but then I have also caught plenty of Bronzebacks with a white streamer? Best bet is to either go to Thorne Brothers or cal them. They will know what is going on.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
