Pool 2 report

Recommended Posts

GotOne

Had a good day on pool 2. Five hours on the water 11 walleyes/sauger, 1 crappie, 1 cat fish and a over 25 silvers. We had a great spot by Watergate catching a couple walleyes and a bunch of silvers. A group of 5 people saw us catching almost one right after another. First 2 of them ran around the bay and starting casting right in front of our boat. They started catching a few and one of them gets on a cell phone and the rest of the group comes running over. They chased an older guy out and just kept casting all around us when we would troll back and forth. Keeping every single one they caught. I was just waiting for them to catch and keep a walleye so I could have called TIP, but they never did. They just didn't have a clue. We moved up by the locks and pulled a few more Walleyes and then left. Even with the clueless, it was a great day on the water.

Wallabee,

I was out there this afternoon also. It almost sounds like we were in the same boat! Caught some walleyes, sauger, lots of whities, sheepshead, pike, a cat & a crappie. We vertical jigged Fireballs & fatheads most of the day. Threw some small jigs & cranks at the white bass too which was fun. I'm guessing that you saw the same people keeping the white bass that we did. Every fish went into the bucket. When I saw them wheel away the first bucket with a dolly we decided to call TIP. They kept every fish we saw them catch over 5-6 hours. How many fish do you need? I talked to a CO on the way out & he said that he'll go down & check on them.

We thought they had another bucket and didn't see it when we came back. I can't believe how they came running over and fished right next to this older guy, he left soon after. I not kidding, they were casting 5 feet away from our boat. My buddy finally starting casting toward them. I didn't have the reg's, so I didn't know if there was a limit on white bass. Two adults and my son in a blue Lund. Buddies boat, don't remember model, it was blue:) Sure was fun.

The limit is 30 which we confirmed with the CO at the park. It tics me off to see that kind of rudeness & greed. Anyway, I'm sure I saw you guys. We had 3 in a Crestliner Fishhawk. Can't wait to get back out. Lot's of great sight seeing yesterday including turkeys, pelicans, funny looking dogs & boats & a pair of deer that swam across the channel near Pike Island. There's always something interesting going on down there. See you on the river.

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      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.
