I fished Calhoun twice in the last week, nothing. One blow-up on a buzzbait, after dark. Might have been a very large bass but I have a feeling it was a smaller ski. Some other guys were fishing and they said it was dead too

I tried getting out there with my boat on Wednesday night, parking was such a nightmare I gave up....

i would imagine that the only way you can park with a trailer right on Calhoun is to get there before 8 AM, even if its a weekday. It is always packed down there. Helpful hint - try parking over by Lake of the Isles, there is usually more parking over there, you have to walk 2 or 3 blocks. Probably why there is parking since people are lazy!

Howdy,

I was on Calhoun yesterday morning fishing for bass. I caught about a 6lb ski on a black buzz bait while it was still dark, before predawn. Then later in the morning I had a very large (40"?) ski on for a few minutes, til it finally jumped, and threw my 7-1/2" jig worm back at me. It hit in about 16' of water near the bottom, as I was swimming my jig back to the boat. Boy, that was a kick! Bassin was kind of slow, but did manage 5 descent fish by the end of the day.

Hey goblue,

Sorry I didn't see your post, i would have been interested. Even catting on the croix would have been fun. I haven't done that in a couple years. This weekend I'm going camping but otherwise midweek or whenever, let me know.

Ended up on Harriet sat morning and had one small fish hit a jackpot. Talked to another boat and they had a small fish follow a prop. There were a lot of smaller fish shallow that looked to be recovering from spanning so the lake might not be ready to go just yet

No problem zelms, another buddy ended up calling me and we went out on the croix. not many fish but a nice night. i'll be up in Ely this weekend, then on a work retreat next week then back up to Ely for the 4th, so after that maybe. One of these days smile

I have spent alot of time on calhoun this year(fishing from shore) and have seen alot of smaller muskies swimming in the shallows. Only managed one 11 pounder. Saw a guy catch a 25 pounder off of the dock using a sucker minnow and a bobber. Also managed two nice northerns one 10 pounder and a 7 1/2 pounder. All caught on the east side either on the dock or in close proximity of it.

Anyone been doing any good on calhoun or harriet lately? I have been fishing some of the smaller with less pressure than calhoun and harriet with only a small northern and bass to show for it.
