Recommended Posts

Plan on coming up several times this coming February, (2nd & 22nd was looking/ hoping for a little advice. Been staying on the west side out of Garrison the last few years. Haven't been too impressed with the results. Any other general area of lake worth considering at that time?

Where did you fish out of garrison last year? There is a lot of good water over there.

You are going to have your work cut out for you in February. That's always been a tough month for me. I would concentrate on deep water flats though, a lot of the "dead zones" have produced some decent fish for me on large suckers under tipups or dead stick set-ups. Suspend your baits 5-20 feet off bottom. I like to fish areas far away from others this time of year. Those fish get educated by february and run for the trenches......

Don't be afraid to look back shallow near the end of the eye season. There is some movement back onto the near shore reefs, humps and shoreline structure that time of year, plus there are some fish there all year long. Fish shallow, be quiet, keep your lights dim during prime times and you should do okay.

Thanks for the help guys! I ended up going outta Dickies/Isle. Give that a try. I was trying some rock piles outta the access south of Garrison a mile or so, about 2 miles out

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
