Two-day carp bounty offered

Attention carp hunters - here's a profitable opportunity - rather than a carp tournament, a carp bounty will be offered.

For two nights only: Friday, May 28 and Saturday, June 5, a carp bounty will be offered for each fish you haul in from Lake Minnewaska or Pelican Lake in Pope County.

What a diffent twist - hope this catches on in the rest of the state !!!!

Calendar wise, it's a bit early for the carp spawn, but with temps in the 80's and 90's, what are the thoughts on when the carp will be rolling around in the shorelines? Isn't it typically when the water nears 70 degrees? I think it will be an early season.

depends on the lake, but it seems everything is 1-2 weeks ahead of schedule. buffalo have been starting to spawn on one of the lakes we shoot.

Great morning with just a little breeze. Supposed to get up to 90F today with winds out of the south. DNR Landing or Glenwood Beach would both be good landings for this morning...but Glenwood Beach might be better later on in the day with more windy conditions out of the south.

Getting some really good reports on crappies in Torgy's Bay again. Sounds like they are catching them shallow off shore as well.

Still a lot of great reports on walleyes off school point...sounds like they are doing really well.

Pike and Bass everywhere...no problems catching fish on Waska! Should be a great weekend for everyone and no one should starve to death.

Many people going out after sunfish but I have not had anyone come back with reports as of yet. But Waska is full of great sunnies so I would assume they are doing well. Jig and panfish leach is always a great way to fish them since you can even pick up a walleye that way.

We have some extra trees from spring planting at the store as well if anyone wants to check those out...plum, chokecherry, lilac, dogwood, etc.

Have a great weekend!

Fish On!

Sounds like they had 32 teams register for the "carp festival" on Minnewaska last night. Should be interesting what comes in. Had one team stop by and they had 10. Nice!

any word on the fish totals for the carp bounty? we decided to shoot a different lake, as it was easier for those of us to meet up, but we still did well, 86 fish. could have used that bounty money though...there are parts of a mercury skeg and prop at the bottom of the lake we were shooting on.... eek

First trip to Minnewaska is next week (Weds-Fri). Grew up 1/2 hour away, and sadly never fished it. We are camping at Glacier and will be fishing out of the Starbuck end. I have no idea where to start on this lake, but feel better about fishing here than I did on my first trip ever to Mille Lacs last year. That felt like a needle in a haystack. At least I can see the other side of the lake on Minnewaska.

I've been following the other thread on fishing the lake, but I guess if anyone is willing to give me a starting point or advice, I'd sure appreciate it. Live bait or crank baits? Hoping to find a walleye or two. I'm bringing a friend with, so I need to at least look like I know what the hell I'm doing.

Launch in the Marina. At dusk exit the marina and take a left. Pull a SSR5 Shad Rap in 6-9 feet of water. Daytime head east to the first point on the north shore. That is Priest's Point. Jig or live bait rig. Shcool house bar is anothe mile or so east also good live bait spot. Directly acroos from the Marina is Kermy's Point. Also nice live bait area. Good luck and have fun.

Good options from Waskawood. I would throw in a Floating Rapala F11 Vampire between Peters Resort and Baycrest in 4 to 6 fow as another option...shinners are probably still around the milfoil and walleyes will not be far away. Also good pike and bass in that area.

You can pull Reef Runners (200 series)just about anywhere on the lake in 12 to 14 fow as well with good luck.

Yes...have fun!

Fish On!

Thanks for the advice waska!! From the sandbaggers down south!! Hope to get into a boat once or twice this summer. Try not to make all the Walleyes mouths sore so maybe they will bite by the time ice fishing rolls around.

Heya James. Don't worry about me. The boat still sits in the driveway!!! I only wish I farmed or sold real estate so I had the time and money to fish. laugh

Thanks Waska for the help. I also think that it might be worth my while to stop in the local bait shop in Glenwood on our way though.

What is the cost to dock at the marina for a couple days? Also, is stuff safe there (not rod/reels or tackle, but batteries and trolling motors).

My dad caught a small muskie on Sunday...very strange! The DNR stocked hybrids back in the 80's so I am not sure where they are coming from. This one didn't look like a hybrid to me. The hybrids are sterile from what I understand. I wish I had taken a picture of it! I think Landdr said he caught one a few weeks back as well. Has anyone else seen some?

saw a small one maybe 18" pulled in on a tip-up 2 winters ago, and also had a buddy catch one out of Emily that went a hair over 24" about 4 years ago. they are lurking.

Went out last night around 10pm and got into some walleyes on Waska. Ended up with 5 nice fish...biggest 17.5. Threw a couple smaller ones back and also missed over a dozen. Great night on the lake with a slight chop and a sprinkle now and then. Five feet of water with an F11 Vampire.

We had our annual BVBR (Bon Val Bass Ralley) on Waska Saturday...good fishing and a shore lunch at the beach park. Can't beat that! The group only picked up three walleyes but a lot of bass and pike. We had plenty to eat.

Went out on Sunday just for a short while and picked up two 18" walleyes out from Torgy's using a 200 Reef Runner. Windy on the lake!

Found some nice sunnies along Crappie Town using panfish leaches.

TIGER MUSKY? Caught this on Saturday...what do you think? Defined strips and spots and slightly pointed tail?

It still holds true that fish always bite better when you are about to do something!

Any thoughts from anyone on the "Tiger Musky"? What do you think...is it?

The one we caught a couple weeks prior, and did not take a photo of, had very defined "bars" and no spots. This one had pretty obvious bars and some spots.

I don't know...just asking what others think.

Landdr,

Looks like a small northern to me. Many of the juvenile northern have similar markings. I still would like to know how they got in there. The one I caught was a pure strain. I also wonder how many, if any, are still left.

When are you guys going to be up in the area? Sorry i never got back to you when you emailed me. Somehow your email got deleted on my school email. Did you ever decide on somewhere to go up in Canada?

      On the south end...  Some good walleye fishing this week.  As many summer weeks, it was helpful to be versatile.  On the big lake, sometimes you have to play the wind, meaning, you have to be flexible where you fish.  
      The fish were there and some great catches this week.  Most fishing in 25-33 feet.  Some are still jigging.  Frozen shiners and leeches were both good this week.  With water temps in the mid to upper 60's, leeches and crawlers will heat up.  
      Spinners (otherwise called harnesses) with minnows, leeches or crawlers were all effective this week.  It is good to mix up colors and bait until you find the right mix.  Gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of them are good colors in stained water. 
      More and more anglers trolling crankbaits with success.  Some have been trolling cranks since the opener but it seems most anglers wait till the water warms.  A great method to cover water and find cooperative fish.  
      On the Rainy River...   Some good summer fishing reports from the river.  Walleyes being caught jigging, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits.  Current breaks and holes holding most fish.  
      Smallmouth bass in rocky areas, current breaks, bridge embankments and weed edges.  Lots of bass in the river.  Crankbaits, spinnerbaits and tube jigs are good lures to start with.  
      Pike are adjacent to weedlines, in slack water areas and in bays.  Working shorelines whether trolling or casting will normally produce nice fish.
      Sturgeon anglers, mark your calendars, sturgeon season opens again July 1st.  
      Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing continues to be strong up at the Angle.  Fish coming from literally 5-33' of water.  Not every walleye is keying on the same food sources.  With structure, rocks, and mud, lots of variety at the Angle.  Jigging, spinners and cranks all producing. 
      Muskie season opens Saturday, June 19th.  Lots of nice fish already caught unintentionally as these predators like to eat.  Muskie anglers were forced to fish MN waters last year with the border closure were happily surprised with the size and quantity of fish on the MN side.  This year should be good.
      Pike hanging out in weedy bays.  Smallmouth relating to rocky points and reefs.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      Hey guys, going up to nine mile lake camping and noticed that Echo lake next door has Atlantic Salmon. Any tips on catching one? Is it even possible this time of year? Any help would make me and the little one super happy. 
      Thanks,

      Just got back from our annual Grand Marais trip! I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting old and cranky, but over the last several times I’ve been up there, I’ve been liking the town less and less. Getting too artsy, hippy, liberal for me 🤷🏻‍♂️ Also sad to see the northshore getting absolutely “loved to death”! Has totally lost it’s up north feel.
       
      Anyway, enough ranting. Fishing was terrible! Numbers and quality were way down. Aside from 2 smallies that barely scratched 17 inches (both were skinny), not even any medium bass were caught. Only caught a few small pike, and 1 walleye. As always, kids had fun catching sunnies from the dock at hungry jack lodge. By the way, we ate at their restaurant for the first time…AMAZING! Also fell in love with castle danger cream ale. Had fun on greenwood lake watching bass jump out of the water and catching dragonflies. There must have been a hatch going on, because they were everywhere! And every bass had fat little belly’s. The rainbow trout on kimball lake has fat belly’s too. They were gorging on mosquito larvae. Casting from shore on superior was actually productive…on the way up I caught a long nose sucker on a daredevil spoon. In front of our motel, I finally caught my first lake trout from superior! Anyway, overall it was still a fun trip. Did some hiking, mini golf, alpine slide. Didn’t see any moose, but we did see a bear and a wolf. 
       
      As always, the people at Hungry Jack Lodge were great! I think we’re going to start staying there from now on.

      On the south end...  Walleyes were active this week.  Some warm weather hit the north country and the fish responded nicely.  Jigging with a live fathead minnow or frozen shiner vertically jigged or drifting spinners with a minnow or crawler in 15-29 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Snelled spinners or harnesses work well all summer into the fall and also is a really good way to cover water.  They are also versatile as they can be fished shallow to deep.  1.0 - 1.25 mph is a good speed, as long as the spinner is spinning.
      Colors to start out with... hammered gold by itself or with another color, pink, glow red, orange and chartreuse.  All good colors in the stained waters.
      Trolling crankbaits is gaining steam with very good results.  A great way to cover water.  Get the lure where walleyes are living and hang on!
      On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye fishing on the river.  Most anglers fishing the river are locals or folks with smaller boats or on windy days.  Although many walleyes head back to the lake after the spawn, not all do!   There is 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from the mouth at Wheeler's Point to Birchdale which is 26 miles east of Baudette.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow with spinners and crankbaits starting to perform well.  
      Multispecies in the river.  Smallmouth bass in rocky or slack water areas.  Pike in bays.  Sturgeon season opens again July 1st.  
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing continues around the Angle.  Fish coming from 14-25 feet of water.  A lot of fish being caught in the mud, but plenty around structure as well.
      Jigging with a minnow and drifting with spinners the go to methods.  Not as many anglers pulling crankbaits but they are working.  Much like the south end, Gold or gold mixed with another color has been effective this week.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      Finally got out Thursday morning to wet a line. Pretty slow. Got 1 bass, 1 northern and a big catfish.  First time getting a cat there. Pulled like crazy and for some reason my dragged decided not to work properly. Luckily I didn’t break the line.  Lots of weeds floating at access. Had to do a lot of cleaning when I loaded up. Big thank you to the young lady checking for AIS. She helped get the weeds off, then I power washed it at home.  Good luck everyone.

      On the south end...  Some excellent walleye fishing this week.  Guides did a nice job of being versatile a couple of days when the wind really blew.  Jigging with a live fathead minnow or frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-29 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Never discount trolling.  Some good reports of trolling crankbaits with very good results.  A great way to cover water where walleyes are living.  Mix up cranks with different shapes, sizes, wobbles and colors until you get dialed in.  Good to have everyone in the boat with a different lure to start out.
      Some popular crankbait colors to start out with...  pink UV Firetiger, Firetiger, chrome / blue, gold / orange.
      More big pike surprised unsuspecting walleye anglers this week.  When you get hooked up, hang on!
      On the Rainy River...   Some nice walleyes are being caught up and down the river in 8-15 feet of water.  A nice alternative to the lake for smaller boats and big blow days.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Spinners with crawlers and crankbaits are also a good option to cover water.  The river offers many species of fish in a setting second to none. 
      Sturgeon season opens again July 1st.  Summer sturgeon fishing doesn't get attention due to walleyes but it is productive and fun.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing continues around the Angle.  Fish coming from 13-20 feet of water.  Anchored around neck down areas with a bit of current, points and around shoreline structure producing nice fish.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Gold / chartreuse is a good color this week.  Gold, glow colors and brighter colors in the stained waters are a solid choice.

      I only had a very short amount of time to fish this morning, so I went to the Apple River. Even though it’s pretty close, I never go here for the simple fact, the fishing is no good! I’m just amazed at the lack of fish holding structure this particular stretch has (Star Prairie). There’s no riffles, pools, boulders, undercut banks, nothing! It’s just fast water! I did catch 1 little rainbow, and lost 2 others. So it was nice to see at least a little sign of life in Apple.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing.  Jigging with a frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-25 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Some anglers locating fish shallow, especially in current areas or on a wind blown shoreline.  There are also good numbers of fish being caught anchored up in deeper water.  Different schools of walleyes are often tuned in to different bait, hence, not all walleyes are doing the same thing.  It is good to trust your electronics, try an area and if no luck, move on.  
      Jig colors, gold, orange, glow, pink, chartreuse or a mix of these colors on the same jig.
      Some good reports of trolling crankbaits where walleyes are roaming.  Crankbaits allow you to cover water and put your lure in front of a lot of walleyes.  Trolling shorelines, even if nobody else is, can produce good results.
      As is the case in a strong pike fishery, some big pike being caught but unsuspecting walleye anglers.  Many pike over 40 inches boated this week.
      On the Rainy River...   There is always a resident population of walleyes that live in the river even after the annual spawning run is over.  Some nice walleyes are being caught up and down the river.  
      Most are still jigging with a minnow.  Try current breaks or holes in the stretch of river you are fishing.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from the mouth to Birchdale 30 miles east of Baudette.  The river offers many species of fish in a setting second to none. 
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing this past week around the Angle.  Fish coming from 5 - 25 feet of water.  A big variance but fish the goto spots.  Neck down areas with a bit of current, points and deep edges of bays producing nice fish.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Gold and brighter colors in the stained waters have worked well.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      I think 3500 lbs is too much.  Trailer your boat and head to a large open parking lot to practice accelerating, coming to a complete stop, making turns, and backing up. So if you are perfect in it then you should trailer it yourself otherwise there are some hauling company for boat. The more you practice handling your vehicle with your boat in tow, the more comfortable you will feel on the open road.

      There haven’t been Atlantic Salmon in Echo Lake in over 40 years. It’s managed for rainbows and splake. While there is lots of shoreline to fish, a boat is better.
