I was up there yesterday out of hunters point on the boot flat and didn't even get a bite the fish where there they just wouldn't take anything, I tried everything from eurolarve to fatheads to shiners and they just looked at it. You could pull them three to four feet off the bottom but then they would just go back down.

Jeep Guy - Appreciate the feedback. Will do our best. Maybe watching them on the cameras/flashers will keep the kids occupied. If anything else develops, please let me know. Thanks,

i was up there saturday overnight off of shaws, SE side. Fished sunday til dark. Got a few perch out deep, and caught 4 jumbos that we kept. No other fish to speak of. Very tough bite, they would come in and just look... or else come in and attack. I hope to get back up there again soon and try my luck again. Good luck

We were marking fish all day sunday as well, threw the entire tackle box at them without much luck. They would follow everything from microsized jigs with waxies to large chubby darters up about 5-6 feet and then retreat back to the bottom.

A buddy and I went out of hunters point Sunday...took the road to the flat...we were on atv and trailer in tow...we made it but there was some slush pockets to go thru. There appeared (didn't measure) to be about 10" of ice in our holes. But the plow truck came out and went around and didn't fall thru. I would still only drive atv or sled out there...but the cold weather we will be getting should help. Fishing was terrible...caught two small eyes. Appeared to be a lot of little stuff on the bottom. We went into two mile and fished the afternoon. Saw some nice marks but tuff to get bites. Both my buddy and I lost decent fish that we had on. To be honest...I'll probably wait for better fishing reports before I hit the big pond again this winter. But I did have a fun time trying on Sunday!

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
