Saturday Night

I agree with Minnesota Stuff....a great night to be on the water with the wind calming and it not being too cold. We started out the evening going ok with a few northerns and walleyes including a 27" walleye and then the bite all but died at about 10:00. I think we caught four fish after 10, but ended the night with two fat 26" fish in our last 15 minutes of fishing. We ended the night with 15 fish all caught on HJ Purple perch and Tennessee shad and three on a #10 gold HJ. I think all of our fish were caught at below 1.1 mph and most probably at less than 1.0 mph. Water temp. was 44 and the boat traffic was pretty light.

great report dhenry! i wonder if we passed each other fishing? i think we were going too fast at 1.0 to 1.3. wish i was independently wealthy so i could fish all the time...yeah right, me and everyone else on here...haha. ive got to revert to things i learned when i was a kid, before gps, locators and all the highpower boats, when most people fished from a wooden fishing boat w/a 7-1/2hp or 10 if you were lucky. ive got to see the baits action before i start trolling and adjust speed by sight and feel, instead of trying different speeds by the gps. i havent been doing that, but next time i will. when i was a kid, when i caught a northern i was going too fast. ive caught a northern each trip on the last two.

last night i saw a boat trolling some time perpendicular to shore, and later concentrating tight to shore but a little north of where i was. was that you?

thanks again for your report.

regards,

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
