Back waters paid off

Recommended Posts

Tipup101

Me and a buds went to an old fishing hole in the back waters and caught well over 50 crappies in that 9.5 t0 12 inch range and a handful of gills. My best day of the year. Here the 15 we kept.

It was a steady all day bite. The murky water seems to keep them biting all day. The fish fry was everything I hope it to be. Tasty and filling.

I saw them before they got taken down, they were dandies!! I am sure that it violated forum policy about photos of dead fish.

I didn't get a chance to see them, but it's likely what crazyice or tipup said.

I'm not allowed to say. It is one of the few lost spots still in the back waters. Its a old boy secret. The only reason Me and my bud know about it is cause we helped an old boy out. he sliped and hurt his back. so we lugged his stuff off lake winnona. So he told us of a secret hole. Plus how to get to it so you will never be seen. It sounds like bull but it is true.. All the times we fished it I have never seen more than four people back there. So sorry guys I can't tell ya where sworn to keep my mouth shut. I will say its closer to wisconsin than minnesota.

I'd keep it under wraps too. General location (such as backwaters or lake name (maybe)), bait, presentation, water depth, time of day, etc are nice to see in a report. Giving directions, GPS Coords, etc is not doing that spot any good. In fact, it will ruin it. One even has to watch it if there are any known landmarks in the backdrop of the picture.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      59 crossing Daisy Bay Friday night. 67 in Big Bay this afternoon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.
