Bite is SLOW

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

Even though Barek nailed a 20-incher last night in his house I think the bite has been slow.

I know Leech will not agree, but it has been pretty slow for most people. I am talking eyes here.

So far -- I have 2 keepers (16.5 and 17.5) and a couple of snot rockets.

Anyone else noticing this trend?

Well went out again today, second day i drove on the ice. i know stupid stupid but 13 inches of ice come on now, i think its good. anyways did fair tonight, first was situated about where i was last night and caught 1 nice perch in 2 hrs.--wondered what was up and why i did so well yesterday, so i took the aqua view around and sure-poop, found what i was looking for, one loan log in a hole in an area with no structure. that thing held fish like crazy, bunch of perch, LOTS OF Northerns, most were decent size, saw them come through on the aqua view. so all in all about 2 northern, 1 eye (threw back) and about 40 perch about 8 keepers, so i guess the bite wasnt ON but it was still there.

Jiggin --

Yeah, most people are driving -- I will join them soon.

The bite continues to be very slow for me on Pelican. I did hear about the neighbors getting a couple of nice ones, but that was about it.

Slow.

Hope it picks up.

Say -- are you all using shiners stillo or are you getting some on fatheads?

We used a little of both right away, but only caught them on shiners -- might need to go back to half and half.

Went to a small local that had zero fishouses on it. I was a little scared got the portable set up and caught some nice jumbo perch and big sunnies.

It was fun. Had one eye hit, I think, but I missed it.

all in all it was fun to have some action again.

Eyes on Pelican are still MIA.

Might have to get directions to that lake Hitman. Sounds like your night went alright after we talked on the phone. I release most of the fish I catch anyway so I will leave the perch and sunnies for you to catch again. Except maybe for one fryn pan full... I like catching perch and pannies that keep you busy all day long..... Sounds like a lot of fun.....

      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.
    • Borch
      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!
    • leech~~
      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.
