How's the fishing down there?

Recommended Posts

Matt Johnson

It's been a couple years since I finished college down there and haven't had a chance to hit my old stomping grounds lately. How's the bite down there? I'm going to try and make a weekend trip down during the next month or so...

Ken? Tom? Jamison? Jason? Brandon? redrocket? Anyone have any cool reports... (ok, I know Jamison is catching fish ;\)grin.gif ) But is anyone else?

Matt:

I cannot speak for anyone else, but I've only managed to get out once so far, but I'm looking forward to getting out more often now that my son is older (2.5) and more independent. They've got a get together on Tetonka set for next weekend, that might be a consideration. I am sorry last winter didn't work out with the ice, but I am still interested in getting a guide trip together. I'm headed to Gull lake @ the end of the month, and wouldn't mind having a head start on finding fish if we run into a slow bite up there.

Lastly, I enjoyed the Mod. gathering @ Thorne Bros. and really got some useful info. from the talks.

well we are all not "pro's" but yeah the fish are biting it seems you have to coax them into biting alot of the time and panfish have been smaller then in years past \:\)

Matt,

Good to hear from you! I know where we can catch crappies with the majority over 10 inches. If you want to join me sometime, just let me know.

Matt, The sunnies and a few crappies have been caught in a area you may know on washington. The crappies that have been caught were better sized than anyother part of the lake ive fished. It has been a short window for the crappies but the sunnies would come and go. Ive only fished that area once this weekend while i was home. Pretty decent fish and action.

fishing has been fairlly well, we have been out in kens back yard and doing good. Have to be moblie I had the camara down today and seen alot of fish moving around the area. They are biting very lite the smaller the jig the better chance that you had, live bait has been the best tried plastics and it just wasen't working out, but all in all its been good.

I'll let you know when I head down and we'll all have to plan a trip somewhere. Maybe an informal FM gathering \:\)

Matt,

All I can say is there are a lot of good reports coming in from all the area lakes. Sizes vary, but the fish are generally cooperating.

Why dont you just pop in at the teTonka gathering this weekend.

As far as my fish report goes, have been hammering many specie in the last month but, its been all in the northern 1/3 of the state.

It would be good to see you again.

I would love to join up for the Tetonka gathering, but I already committed to helping out with the StrikeMaster clinics up here in the cities. I'll be sitting outside on a below zero day trying to help someone catch a 5-inch sunfish \:\)

I'm thinking sometime in February would be best. Make a weekend trip out of it and hit two different lakes...

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
    • Borch
      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
