Minnetonka Pannie Report

Recommended Posts

blackdog1101

Fished Phelps Bay from about 6:30 - 9:30 last night. Had a blast. Perfect night, nice temps, no wind. We drilled 2 holes in 30 feet and immediately marked fish. We were marking fish consistently for all 3 hours, never needed to drill more holes.

Son used the flasher, and had a small Swedish Pimple on his line tipped with a waxie. I was fishing blind with a 1/32 black Ratso.

I had "one of those nights" where my line got tangled, and another time broke, and a third time lost a jig, so it seemed I spent half my time re-rigging. Son quietly caught a number of fish while I was fixing my messes. Once I got my tangles undone I managed to catch a few fish, but he cleaned my clock. Overall we caught about 20 fish, kept 7 for beakfast today, but he caught more fish and bigger fish than I did tonight. But I was fishing with my son, so who's complaining? \:\)

Here's a picture of him with a nice 10"er, biggest fish of the night.

That smile says it all Blackdog!! My son is 11yr and is deffinetly my fishing buddy. Love going out and getting the kids some action. Sounds like my reports when I take him out, they usually out fish the old guys but thats the way I like it. I think I am heading out to Tonka tomorrow with some buddies and I'm sure my son will be right there with us. Nice report

Nice Report, Great pic!, Good to see the kids getting out, I can't wait till my son is a little older and can sit still long enough to cross some eyes.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update

      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
