Recommended Posts

Heading upto Appledorns this Friday-Sunday and wondering where we can get some bait? What seems to work best for tipups or rattle reels at night, in case Walldoe wants a change of pace on the last weekend?? Thanks in advance Tracey

Look for the big muskie on the east side of the road. You can't miss it.

Prince Bait in Milaca. 3 miles North of Milaca on HWY 169. For your rattle reels at night put on a shiner with a red hook. If you can't find shiners just use a fathead.

Princes had some shiners left but they went very big. i had to have tony do some digging to get me a couple dozen 3-5". They are what we got all our walleyes on this weekend. We got some really nice fish.

Start checking early because most people in this area are out of shiners.

I would also plan on bringing up your own Euro larvae if you plan on using them for the perch. Seems the farther north ones goes the harder they are to find. Plenty of shops have the waxies but not the smaller version.

Thanks for help on the bait needs. We learned two things this weekend the guy at Lundeens dosn't have to worry about ever selling us bait again. On the otherhand Johnson's gets big credit for being very sociable and willing to help 4 guys who haven't fished the lake very much. Just wish we would have bought all our bait there. I will drive out of my way to buy bait there again............Tracey..

P.S.- The fishing was beyond bad but the weather was nice and it wasn't from lack of effort......

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏
