After Sunset bites ?

Recommended Posts

perch_destroyer

Any lakes near Moorhead (on the Minnesota side) that have good fishing after the sun drops. I am looking to get some evening fishing in sometime.

Perch --

It has been pretty slow, overall. After dark seems to be just as slow as mid afternoon.

You can get some pannies to bite past dark, but that is tough to say. Not great help, but I would try some panfish lakes like Big Detroit for bite after sunset.

Actually, in the past, Labelle north of Lake Park gave up some pannies after dark. I don;t know if it still does, but I know it did.

Hey perch, Obviously the bite varies from lake to lake and day to day for that matter ....BUT we have had a heck of a time catching anything during the usual awesome bite twilight periods but the couple times we spent a little more time in the fish house we had better luck. Heck man my brother caught a waldo just shy of 27 inches at midnight. And the crappies have been biting pretty consistently after dark. Nothing spectacular but it seems we pick one or two off every 1/2 hour or so. Just some info I thought I'd share

I know exactly what you mean....but she doesn't want anything to do with that either. That's another way to get out of the house to go fishing cool.gif

Yeah -- clean up after yourself and do some extra work around the house -- Chicks dig that.

That and get her a bottle of wine and record her when she says, "you can go fishing anytime." Then keep it in your most stinky hunting stuff -- next to the doe wizzz.

Looks like we sparked some convo hear over Pike Pickler's comment. To be truthful, I'd say I got it made when it comes to hunting and fishing. Yes it is important to keep her happy at home. It helps to to stuff around the house and do nice things. She even went to the store last week to pick me up some frozen smelt, wow!, what a girl.

I think the Pickler wants to believe things wont change, we've all been there, but still wouldnt change it for anything. She hates the smell of earth scents and doe p, so I like to think she wants me out of house during deer season. So..... anyway.... I will be getting out sometime to do some sunset bites real soon.

Any other tips to help the Pickler out, keep them coming, we all know he'll need them someday.... yours truely, the Perch

yeah another tip is no matter if you are right on something, if she thinks you are wrong, you are wrong. no ifs ands or buts. All the ladies I have ever had to live with (mom, sisters, wife, etc.) they like to hold grudges and can remember what you did wrong to the "T" from 10 years back. They won't let you forget it. Don't make them mad, and don't use something from the past against them, or you'll be sleeping out on the ice for good.

You need to know when to pick your battles and determine if it's worth the effort of the fight.

PS, no matter how many "points" you get for doing nice things, they are almost never redeemable. If somebody out there figured out how to work the system here, let me know.

All these 'perks' and I would have what you consider a "good" wife... crazy.gif

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.   
    • Getanet
      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      pink and white usually rocks as does white.   yesturday I took the grandkids out and the gulp alive emerald shiner made lots of smiles.

      Nope...   320er...   Thanks for the info.. 
    • fish_time
      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.
