LOW -- a good and bad trip

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

We had a great time the first day of fishing.

It was beautiful outside and the fishing was great.

The two of us managed 47 fish -- 21 eyes 26 saugers and one fat perch.

The biggest was 18.5. Had two saugers that were 17 inches.

Had so much fun.

all but three were on the buckshot spoon. Bobbers were worthless.

The bad part was that I got sick in the morning and we could not go out on the 1.5 hour bommer ride. Having the flu and riding in one of those did not work.

Stopped in every town on the way home, but had a good time. Could have made it out at 10 am -- but they wouldn't take us out since the big rigs were there already.

I can understand.

Still had a great time and wish I was still up there.

Yeah --

We stayed at Wigwam and had a good time. They have cable tv in the cabin and we were so worn out that we were just up to the bar for a couple and went back and relaxed.

I think you will have an awesome time.

I am thinking about sneaking back up there for the Northern Run -- maybe in two weeks. Never done that but heard it is a BLAST>

It was like 23 miles.

Wish they had a couple of houses closer -- they should have maybe had a couple closer for people that come in at a half-day time?

Just a thought.

Were were out about 18 miles on sunday morning, took the snowmobiles and just rented a house for the morning. However we did not have good luck at all. We kept five decent ones until noon when we left.

As for late fishing up there, we are still going to go a couple more times. once by Pine island, and then like last year we will go to Long Point in April with four wheelers and portables. We did very well there at that time last year. cheap cabins and it slept about ten darn people. That was big enough for the two of us. Tried to call you hitman but no answer, I suppose you were puking when I rang !!!!!

ATV -- yeah as long as you don;t try to go out as far as we did -- sled would work better. If you stay on the MAIN road you will be fine.

If you could -- you should go out to whyyere we were -- like 22 miles out -- you could follow the bombadier trail -- when you get the the ice heave you are half way there.

You will know when you get to all of the houses. -- it was about 28 FOW.

Anything else -- let me know.

HIt and Deer-n-eyes

From where Hit stayed I assume he went out on the ADRIANS access byt he Wigwam, so from long point the roads are obviously different. I believe Hit means the Bombadier trail from Adrians Access and then out 22 miles. We took that very trial last sunday and its easy and fast on a sled. Just thought i would help if I could so you werent talking about two different places.

      I took a couple of guys from church out last night. They fish about once every couple years. I didn't think they would have the patience for walleye fishing so we went after pannies. Caught a couple of sunnies right away. For me they were small but these guys were just pumped to catch 7-8 inch sunnies! Fished for them a bit until we had about 15 in the live well. They wanted to clean them so I was fine with that. I then took them to one of my crappie spots. Not sure if they have ever caught a crappie before, right away I caught a small 9 inch one and of the guys was kind of upset I through it back. A minute later he hooks into a 13". Pretty sure most of North Becker county heard him hooting, hollering! I was laughing so hard! It is always blast taking out folks that love fish but don't fish very often. That to me is just strange. Especially around here with tons of lakes and great fishing. It wasn't fast and furious but still a solid  bite. Took about an hour to catch our 30 fish limit of great eaters. Most in the 11-12" range. I found them scattered along the weeds in 9-12', simple plastic with a twister tail or a paddle tail. It always super fun taking out fishing newbies. Pretty sure FB was full of their pictures last night!

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
