Walleye #1

What do you think the cold weather will do to the fishing this weekend??

Coming up on Saturday, hope to catch some eyes or whatever wants to bite.

I've been watching the weather for the past week, and praying to Paul Douglas for good weather this weekend! Up until yesterday they were forecasting temps in the 20's... now I see that the high is -4 on saturday. Bummer... hopefully the bite doesn't completely shut off!

Cold is one thing, but maybe more important what are the wind speeds suppose to be like this weekend? Don't want my portable to become a sail boat with me in it. I'm getting to old to take those kind of joy rides.

Pray for stable or falling pressure also.

If you are depending on Paul you are in trouble. Do you know of anyone who can be right 50% of the time or less and still have a job?? I have had fishing success during cold front conditions and poor success during ideal conditions but I have never had a bad trip - it's what you make of it. It all depends if the crappie gods are smiling on you or not.

Looks like -15 with a 25mph wind Sat. night. So what does that make the wind chill. I've had a sleeper planned out for 2 mths now for the wife 2 small boys and myself. I've fished in that weather before but my wife says I'm nuts if I think I'm bringing them onto the ice Sat. I've got to convince her quick or I'm going to be fishing alone.

I was up three weeks ago with my wife and two boys it was her first trip and we had -20 to -24 at night with -44 wind chills managed to catch some fish and it was nice and warm in the sleeper. She is already talking about next year. If you cant convince her I bet you wouldnt have too much trouble finding some buddys to go fishing alone in solitude doesnt sound all that bad either good luck.

You can still catch fish in that weather. I did it 3 times last year on red and never moved from the sleeper to do it. The sleepers are always nice and warm.

      Starting a new thread for 2018 Pike River Hatchery progress. No new news today. Cliff

      Don't mean to pick a scab here, but the mods have asked for more engagement from members, so I'm trying. I've never been up to VNP, but am looking at camping on KAB in early June. Would be heading up from the Twin Cities. Neither my buddy or I have been up there before, and we would not be going if we didn't know ahead of time we had a campsite reserved.  Without that assurance we would just stay at one of our families cabins in the Brainerd Lakes area instead.

      The Pike River is almost wide open today! It will not be long now before they start the walleye netting! Cliff

      If I were you I’d run only what the manufacturer recommends. If it’s a Suzuki brand lube I’d only use that. For peace of mind and if anything were to happen you can say your were running the recomnded fluids. Also your local dealer should have everything you would need and can help you out if you have any questions. Not sure about the other fluids you mentioned but that’s what I would do if I were you. Good luck

      I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?

      Hi Guys - believe it or not I just realized there are all these great boat-in camping opportunities on Kab and other lakes. My buddy and I are looking at reserving a site in early June, and since we're so late to the game our options are fairly limited. I've read through this thread to get a little idea of what's what on Kab, and none of the ones mentioned are currently available the weekends we're looking at going . But it's good to know Moxie island is about 2 miles from the Visitor Center, which gives me a frame of reference for how far some of the other sites are. The ones that are available tend to be open a lot - and I'm not sure if it's because of their location or quality of the site. For what it's worth it would be 2 guys, using my buddies 17 ft boat, and ideally going after walleye. Are any of these sites ones you wouldn't send your worst enemy to? Cutover Island South K6
      Northland K24 - (this one is hardly ever booked)
      Windigo K35
      LaBounty's PT K14
      Grassy Island K9
      Peterson PT K25 (realize it would be better to use the Ash River launch for this location)

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run
    • Rick G
      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris. 
    • gunner55
      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow
