My week on the lake 11/2-11/8 was a great week

Ok guys here how it went on my yearly trip up in the fall for night trolling. First night out did really well on jointed raps in the perch color along with firetiger not fast but man some nice fish caught 12 but was out all night long biggest was 29. 11/2 did about the same area as the night befor weeds inside outside over the middle of them and wasnt going so good till about 11pm only had 2 fish up till then all the sudden not sure what caused it but in the next 2 and a half hours 21 fish between 2 of us again all big fish with the biggest at 28 same 2 colors as the night befor. Sunday and monday night we didnt make it out the ladys wanted to gamble and have some fun so of course we went and the wind was to much to handle for me. The rest of my time on the pond was great caught fish every night some big some small and even a few northern and muskies throwin in the mix.We only fished the west side and up north to around red door but most of are time was out in front of the casino since we were staying there.Like mentioned befor all most every fish we caught was on jointed raps in the 2 colors mentioned but had luck on others but not near as much. Out of the whole trip biggest walleye was a fat 32inch yes i said 32inch 10.2 eye wich i will get that picture up as soon as i can figure how to do it. No sorry wasnt me who caught it was my buddy and yes folks he kept it took it in and is havin it mounted great looking fish.So yes there are fish to be caught but i will say this if you go out there you best have warm clothes and some good boots or be cold in less the 2 hours and headin in. Was a great trip and ill see you on the ice this winter. Oh by the way we went to the Neil Young concert on the way back thursday night and to tell you the truth he sucked big time he would be better off not touring no more .

Awesome report! Sounds like matching the hatch was getting it done. The stick baits have been off for us the last week. Cograts on that 32 inch monster.

Rodmaker we used mainly #7 #5 and #4 shallow raps jointed are average speed wich seem to be the ticket this trip was from 0.7 - 1.3 anything faster or slower didnt seem to work at all. We did get some nice fish over the time we fished wich was mostly from about 8pm - 3or4 in the morning could say we are die hards LOL. Any ways great trip was had by us and the ladys.

Where is he going to get the fish mounted. Matt up at Artistic Anglers does skin mounts as well. As far as I'm concerned, he's the best.

      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.
    • JeremyCampbell
      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.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.
    • kelly-p
      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.
    • pikeandchester
      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.
