Minnewaska is very busy during Waterama. Be especially careful if you're out on the lake at night after the fireworks show. Boats and pontoons are going every which way and I always come across plenty with poor/improper lighting, and in some case none at all.

we were out there today, fishinG was okay, ran into a total [PoorWordUsage] at the access. we put the boat in, before we could even park the truck the retard and his bud were backing the boat in to the point where their motor almost backed in to our boat, and his little retared chick friends were giggling the whole time like they thought the boys were being cool, but they just made us very madd.. hey moron, do that again and ill jump over my boat and make sure you NEVER do that again. am i the only one that has to deal with [PoorWordUsage] holes on waska?

I wasn't fishing with him and I didn't take the photo...but he did show me the photo on his phone. It was laying from nose to fin on the ruler and that was good enough for me to report.

I will see if he can email me the photo and will post for your own satisfaction. Still not sure why you just have to give me heat all the time...but whatever paddles your boat.

10 to 10.5 inch sunnies don't seem to be so uncommon right now. I have had several different independant reports in of gills 10 to 10.5 inches...most being caught with panfish leaches (not shrimp smile )

Fish On!

Hey Landdr

Heading to the wonderful waska tommorrow am with my wife and kids for the weekend, I would appreciate the latest hot spot update on where to catch what if you wouldn't mind !!!!

Thanks for the info in advance !

Most people have been going after the sunnies. Still good reports on big sunnies...both shallow 6 to 8 fow and out deeper in 16 to 18 fow. I would probably target the 12 to 14 ft weed line but there are many many spots to try. Priests Pt, Peter's down to Baycrest, Swenson Pt. and Bay, Minnewaska House pencil weeds, Lakeside Ballroom bar, etc., etc.

You can slip bobber with a panfish leach, crawler, waxie, etc. or even pull spinners for them and maybe pick up a walleye along the way. You can even pull small crankbaits...again maybe pick up a walleye or even a crappie.

Bass and pike pretty much everywhere and very aggressive...shallow to deep.

If you want to catch a lot of fish and several different kinds, Waska is a great lake to go to.

Fish On!

Got out for some night eyes last night. Been itching to do so and finally got to it.

Once again the lake turned flat on me. Hard to fish eyes shallow with that flat of water.

We did manage to catch 8 eyes, 1 smallie and a pike. Kept 3 eyes that measured 15, 16.5 and 17.5. Four to six fow with a F11 Vampire. There were a couple boats on the lake when we started but had the lake to ourselves by eleven. People always leave right when the fishing gets the best!

Might try it again if I can find some time.

Fish On!

I haven't been on waska yet this year--last year was very good for the panfish--are there any reports or how is the sunfish bite??

thanks

I was at Game Fair thru the weekend with booth and seminars...vbut need to get out for some fishing this week. Gotta catch up on work first tho.

The panfish bite has been very good and steady. I occassionally hear a poor report or two but the majority are really getting into some nice sunnies and some crappies as well. There are some more productive spots but for the most part just work the 12 to 14 ft weed lines all around the lake and you should have good success. Good sunnies are being found in the 16 to 20 fow water areas as well...off School Point, Priests Point and other areas off the breaks.

Bass and pike everywhere.

Walleyes are out there but there is also a good supply of forage for them so they are a tougher bite since they have so much else to eat. Best walleye bite has been at night but we usually pick up a few during the day as well.

Fish On!

Barsness Park (call city hall for reservations or stop at park) or maybe even Hunts Resort for the Glenwood Side. Hobo Park possibly for the Starbuck side. Glacial State Park south of Staruck also has camping.

Barsness Park is pretty open with kid play stuff and right by the lake.

Sunfish are really biting well as well as bass...kids should have a great time!

Landdr a 10.5" bluegill?? can I see that picture? with the ruler

10.5" gills on Waska are as plentiful as old ladies at the VFW playing bingo.

They are literally everywhere.

When fishing Waska I only keep 9.5 to 10.5 inch gills.

Hey...I just said my cousin caught "one" that was 10.5 inches.

That's not so unreasonable since many people catch 8 to 10 inch sunnies on the lake both summer and winter.

My dad and I got into some big ones last year that might have been 10 to 10.5 inchers but that was just a chance one and we did not measure them. Those were some very big gills tho!

Might try some night fishing tonight...I think I seen a growing moon!

Glad to see you are getting some time to get the kids out camping and some fishing...hopefully the weather will work out as well.

The panfish slowed for awhile after the major rain events...added a lot of water to the lake and stired it up. Kinda shut things down for awhile but I have been starting to hear better reports again.

Work the 12 to 14 ft weedlines for panfish and you should do fine. Definately some nice sunfish out deep though too...even out to 20+.

Bass and pike have stayed pretty active and you shouldn't have too much of a problem catching them as well. Same spots as the sunnies.

Walleyes are tougher to come by during the day. You can work the weedlines or even try some deeper spots with jigs, rigs or cranks. I have not heard to many good reports and usually only get a couple when we go out during the day. I am going to try to get out tonight if the wind goes down...nice moon and it is calling!

I will be in Tuesday for awhile but then not sure what the day has in store for me. I still have some food plots to finish up so I might be out farming. smile

Fish On!

well got back from minneswaska--the campground was awesome and the kids had a blast. the fishing was extremely slow compared to last year fished weds for 6 hours with very lil to show for it tried for sunnies first and hole holed and tried some drifting as well. caught a few but all small tried trolling for pike any where from 7-15FOW not much to show at all but a nice day on the water weds. could have been the cold front pushing thru had higher expectations out of waska but that lake gets pounded hard every season each year so got to slow down sooner or later. might try for some eyes out there in a few weeks when the water cools

I had the family out there thursday. Chased sunnies for the better part of 6 hours. Only 4 keepers. Very slow compared to last time I was out there.

I would agree things are slow this summer. Been fishing Waska for the last 5 years, and this is the slowest I've seen. Not sure it's the water temp as I have seen it warmer. Have noticed that the perch population is improving. Seeing more and more 9 and 10 inch fish.

Actually, the walleyes are biting fairly good right now. Just have to find them. The heavier the wind the better the bite is.

Share on other sites

We have been finding a lot of sunnies on the south side...Peter's and west of there typically. We found them a little shallower this time...more in 10 to 12 fow rather than 14 fow. I think as the lake settles down from all the rain, the bite should get better and better.

Just try fishing for walleyes with a crawler and you will get plenty of sunnies!

Still an agressive bass and pike bite.

Fish On!

Hello fellow fishermen and outdoorsmen. I was just wanting some advice on spots where the bass and pike bits have been good. I have been coming to Minnewaska for the past 5 years over the labor day weekend and haven't had much luck with bass around the lake but have found spots with sunnies. It would be awesome if anybody could point out some spots for me for the weekend where the bass bite is good.

It's been very slow lately. Unless you talk to the bait shop guy...of course they are biting like crazy then : )

Try trolling just outside the weedlines (13-16 fow) with silver/blue raps. Halveson point to past Baycrest is good.

Sorry I missed the posts...had a trip to Canada and just got back. A lot of fun!

I personally have not had a problem catching a lot of bass and pike on Waska...my wife has definately outfished me on the bigger pike. I posted some photos on this.

But it is still "fishing" and not "catching", so I am sure everyone will have different results. Some know the lake better than others as well. But I don't think you will get too many rediculous reports from the good "bait shop guys" around Minnewaska. I think you will find the majority of them are very helpful and will do their best to get you on some fish...or at least a good time trying.

We have picked up a lot of bass and pike, and some really nice sized ones, pulling Reef Runners along the weed lines in 12 to 14 fow. I think if we slowed down and threw some spinnerbaits, jigs or plastics we would even catch more...but we like to troll and cover some ground for the fun of it.

I would agree with GoingFishin...I think that is right on. Maybe even slow down and try some casting, jigging or rigging as well. I have caught some of my biggest bass and pike out from Peter's and Baycrest.

Dilber007...how did you do? Do you have a report for us? I heard the weather was pretty tough over the weekend but I wasn't around to confirm.

Fish On!

      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.

      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.

      Does anyone have someone to recommend for mowing paths/lawn on an island (Frazer\Smarts Bay)?   I only have a DR Brush Mower system I am using right now (been through 2 old hand me down mowers (I'd love to get rid off, one is a John Deere).   Thanks for any insight   Andy

      Hi, I went fishing yesterday and realized that I didn't know how to determine the quality of crayfish. Some are very green. This is normal?  Jimmi  employee monitoring
