landr, i was talking about beach docks and towers, not the silver docks at the landing or the t-dock at the city park, it does not cost any more to leave those in a little longer

I hit Minnewaska last week and what a week it was. First morning out, limit of eyes, gills and crappie. Talk about largemouth, must have boated a dozen from 3-5.5 punds, never caught bass like this be

called my cuz yesturday and they put the permanent out saturday not too far from Glenwood on favorite spot.  zippo on the action but hopefully it will go after this snap. welcome to FM JD ! 

Curious on this also heading up there Sat on a gill hunt hopefully wont have to swiss cheese the lake to bad  Guessing there's some truck traffic but would like a little more info if possible.

tired Any fishing reports??

Walleyes weren't in full swing (for me) last time there, but did get into some nice pickling pike. Out of 70+ pike caught, I'd dare say only 2 or 3 were over 24"s. Hope this is just a cycle 'waska is going through. Lots of little pike are not indicative of a healthy fishery. The LM's were a couple of ticks bigger than normal, so it aint all bad.

Spent last Friday/Saturday fishing Waska with little results. Water temp down to 46F and the weather was decent. Lots of fish in 20-22 feet off of drop-offs but even redtails didn't help. Been a beautiful Fall though.

Good amount of ice on the Glenwood end this morning. Temp reads 7 F so ice is being made. If this keeps up, the lake should be froze over in short time. A few calmer nights and she will really be making ice.

Fish On!

What's a good amount?? I was hoping it would stay open til after this storm. A blanket of snow might slow things down a bit. Stay safe all.

Not referencing thickness...there is ice a hundred yards or so out and then water with heat escaping from it quickly. Waska is a shallow lake so it does not take long for it to go.

With the forcasted temps thru the week...I don't think there is much of a chance it will stay open. I think Thursday it is a high of 14F and a low of 2F...no way the open is going to make it thru that.

Fish On!

The forcasted winds might help. Even if it does cap over before / during the snow, the winds should help keep the "blanket" thin. An inch or two of ice with a "good" blanket of snow could make for slow going for a while. I hope that's doesn't come to fruition.

Thought this might be good Minnewaska thread info as well. Thanks for the forcast, Landdr.

Good amount of ice on the Glenwood end this morning. Temp is reading 7 F so making ice. My truck wasn't so happy this morning however.

Could be a great winter on Waska this year. Summer fishing was down due to the bad weather on the weekends...should be a lot of panfish to be caught. Spear and pike guys should have a hayday with the pike. Not a lot of walleye fishing this summer or not many caught so there should be a good population of eyes as well. Some of the best walleye fishing on Waska is early ice.

Fish On!

We have two threads going on the samething...just move into the Waska thread.

_____________________________________________________________

Hey...thanks! City Commission should be interesting!

Truck is plugged in and will get the charger on it shortly. Was out with the oldest son delivering cub scout popcorn last night and I don't think he shut his door tight so it left some lights on. Just jumped in the other car so no biggy.

I just didn't see the usual fishing pressure this summer...there were very few Fridays and Saturdays with descent weather...windy or rainy or windy and rainy. There were several nice Sundays but then everyone was winding down for the week to start. We also had a late bite on Waska last year for ice fishing which allowed a lot of panfish to make it thru ice fishing...probably a large spawn and hatch?

Waska has an abundance of food due to the vegetation and water clarity, so I am expecting a large spawn/hatch with reduced summer harvest to turn into a well feed well sized panfish population. Plus, it looks like we had our normal August/September which should allow for an earlier algae bloom (last year it was late) which would allow for the zooplankton to be spike earlier which would allow for the panfish to start eating them down earlier...which means the panfish will be hungry in late December thru January...unlike last year where they did not run out of zooplankton food until mid-January which resulted in the late bite.

This is speculation but seems the direction the lake is going. I hope so cuz we don't need another HUGE sunfish population making it into spring spawn again or it may really be out of balance. Another huge number of little tiny sunfish forage will result in even more small pike and even less hungry walleyes.

Just my initial thought is that we need a lot of 7 to 9 inch sunfish put in the fry pan this year "if" the population is as high as I think it might be. Once we can get the cameras down to look around and see what the bite and size is like, we will know more then.

Fish On!

I cautiously see where you are coming from. Lotta speculation though, IMO. Conservation from the bottom up (controlling the sunnies) seems tougher than from the top down.

I'd like to somehow help the northern size average increase. I've mentioned the possiblitly of getting size limits on pike Dean w/ the DNR there. Seems like too much opposition around the lake to make anything like that happen. The "voluntary" slot, like for waska's walleyes, might be our only option / suggestion for pike. Apex predators, in healthy fisheries, keep things in check much better than we do.

Please don't encourage us to bring the 15 pounders in to the shop this year. They are out there, but need to stay out there, IMO. I did keep a bunch of little pickling sized pike this fall, but threw back anything over 24"s, which weren't many. Kept some "smaller than I'd usually keep" sunnies as well, while throwing back the 9"ers, with hopes of having a few 10"ers in the future. Not sure how comfotable I am saying we need to thin out the healthy breading stock to keep them in check. Good luck.

the best way to re-balance the average pike size in the lake would be to re-educate those that think only walleye and panfish are fit for a frying pan. There are many many many people that fish waska with the mentality that pike are no better than rough fish. many of those are the same ones that like to pound their chests over a bucket full of 12" walleyes.

not a lake biologist, but for the gills would say let the 8's and 9's go and pound the 5 1/2's to 6 1/2's....similarly with the pike....... keep your limits of low 20's fish, quit being nancy's about the slime, and clean some up....while you are not going to get a crazy amount of meat, they taste great and your helping the lake.

+1. I agree with Selectively Harvesting the sunnies & crappies "if" we need to thin them out. The bigger ones are big because of genetics and time. Ya, there might always be enough to successfully spawn, but why not give ourselves and kids a chance at some 10-11 sunnies and 14-15" crappies in years to come. Pipedream, I know....A guy can dream.......

Pickling pike is great as well. Search the recipes section here on FM (Pickled Northern - BD110's recipe). I used his recipe this fall nad it turned out great, IMO. Bones are dissolved in the process, and it was kinda fun. And yes, I'd bet most os us couldn't pick out a piece of fried pike (smaller ones with bones removed) out of a pile of walleyes. Thanks for adding the vid.

Man can that guy clean fish! I thought I was pretty handy with a knife...but that is an art to watch him work that fish. Excellent video.

He's got a couple moves that I don't do...gonna give them a try next victim I can get out of Waska. smile

My fishing partner and I always pickle a bunch of pike year round...actually I catch most of them and he pickles them, and then we share the jars. Great out in the boat when we are fishing open water...went thru some during the Fall Walleye Classic in fact...and we always have some for the fish house. Can't beat it!

My wife and I always manage to catch some 36 to 40 inchers each year in Waska but those always go back. Can't beat the fight they put up and nice to have them back in the lake to catch another time. Too big to fry and not what I am looking for to pickle either...but a hoot to catch.

I also agree on the pike fillets versus other fish. I actually find walleye to be too tasteless...great texture...but just not a lot of the flavor I like. Sunnies are number one, small bass and pike are excellent too and then crappie and perch are great as well.

Wow...I'm getting hungry just thinking about it and watching that video...BRING ON THE ICE!!!

Ice as far as I can see across Waska this morning...I would expect it is froze over completely based on what I seen from top the hill yesterday.

There is on open spot out from Dairyland that has some coots or ducks in it keeping it open...not a big spot but that is something to watch for as it might be a problem thru early ice. This spot is about where a group of houses always form for early ice eyes. I would expec there will be some guys fishing this weekend...not me!...I like a good 8 inches before I drill a hole. Be careful!

yep, yah, ya know folks ya can't just use any knife out of the kitchen!

goose 89, i should not have said "pound" the smaller panfish...do not know "if' there is a problem with the size structure on waska...it was a weird year with many larger fertile lakes this year as far as baitfish outbreaks, most lakes i fished had a huge explosion of perch, sunnies, and forage in general. it made the fishing more difficult, and why some people are saying their lake is "shot". many people, including myself, fish off memories and what worked the last 4 years might not have this year.

landdr, just came across that vid yesterday. i have always went straight down in the "line" and made a u shape cut coming back towards it, pulling the strip out. you will most certainly catch a pike before me and if you could post your results that would be great. also completely agree with you as far as the walleye taste test, before everyone gets excited...yes they do taste good and their texture when traditional cooking is superior to a lot of other fish.....but hopefully people will not just limit themselves to just eating a few species of fish. smaller bass taken out of cooler water do taste good, same with pike, catfish, bullhead, and even sheepshead. in many cases, these "roughfish" do not harbor a lot of the toxins that that larger eyes do. chuckle if you want, but i guarantee if you would come to my annual "roughfish fry/smoke" you would hardly be able to tell what you are eating and enjoy everything being served. just some food for thought smile

pushbutton, I understand what you're saying, and I agree with you. Keeping / "pounding" the "middle of the road" fish makes much more sense, in more ways than one, than taking all the bigger ones we can. I'm with you, even though my "keepers" slot might be a "tick" bigger than yours.

Baitfish / panfish "explosions" are part of natures cycle. We can't control that, and we're gonna have up and down "catching" years. That's understood. I do believe these "explosions" are balanced out again more quickly / safely by a healthy apex predator population (which Minnewaska is without right now, IMO). I'd rather have them balance it out, than us. Is Minnewaska "shot"?? I don't think so. But I don't think we're helping the fishery out in any way with "promotions" to keep the largest of any species, whether pike or panfish.

Went by the Starbuck side of the lake today. The lake must have froze over, broke up, then blew towards Waters Edge. Lots of wicked points sticking up on that end. Out a ways, it was steaming pretty good.

was going to fish by the beach in glenwood today but ice was barely over 2" thick and seemed to vary. Then we went to reno, off the east access had roughly 3 1/2" also semmed to vary. We fished in 13FOW 3-6:30pm one nice crappie and lots of pesky perch.

Waska looks pretty black this morning with the warmer temps and a little precipitation. Light sleet to snowing now. Looks like there might be some open water way out there but now sure.

There were a couple portables out from the beach this weekend but I have no report on ice conditions. Supposed to get really cold this week so I am sure things will firm up really fast and make a lot of ice...as long as we don't get a lot of snow.

Looks like a good day to go deer hunting! smile

Tonight and tomorrow's wind might make things interesting if, in fact, there's some open water out there. We don't need any wet, heavy snow either. Still hoping to be 4 wheeling this coming w/e. Fingers crossed.

I was very suprised to see an ATV on Waska west of the Meat-Hole on sunday night. I havent found over 4" of ice out there.

Link to post
Share on other sites

Ya...I would say the ATV was taking a very big chance.

Got probably 4 to 6 inches of snow but still coming down. Waska looks really clean however with the wind moving the snow off the lake. Even though the wind is nasty, it is probably reducing any early heavy snow issues. Could be a saver. With the cold temps thru the week and Friday coming up close to 30F, it could really be a great weekend to try some early walleyes and panfish on Waska. Hope to have some ice reports later this week as we close in on the weekend.

Thanks landdr. Keep us informed on the status! Wouldn't mind getting out for some gills and eyes this weekend.

Waska is looking really good. Most people I talk to think there's probably 4 inches out there now with the cold clear nights we have been having and little snow on the ice. Forcast is for low temps and lower winds so I expect there might be 5 or 6 inches by the weekend (not out in the middle of course)...but if I have any more updates I will post them.

I have not had any reports on ice by the school...but there were some portables and ATVs out in The Hole or just off School Point. I would guess there are 4 to 5 inches out there but maybe more with the cold temps overnight.

Several portables out from The Beach and a few other houses scattered around the lake. Most people think there is 5 to 6 inches closer in and I would expect to see ATVs and some permenants out this weekend with the continued colder weather.

My guess is that we have gotten 2 to 3 inches of very fluffy snow so far. With the ice we have, I don't think the snow is going to be an issue...in fact it might be what we needed to give a little banking on the houses.

No fishing reports yet...a lot of people in today but no one reporting back. Since most are after walleyes I wouldn't expect a whole lot of reports. smile

5 to 6 inches of very fluffy snow.

A local fisherman reported 7 to 8 inches of ice on Waska around the perimeter.

Good luck fishing today!

      On the south end...  Strong summer walleye patterns continue, which is a good thing for catching LOW walleyes. The two primary techniques are drifting or trolling spinners with live bait and trolling crankbaits.
      Schools of walleyes obviously move around based on forage, wind, current and a variety of other factors.  This past week, a couple of patterns emerged.  First and very consistent, targeting walleyes in 30-34' of water over deep mud in Big Traverse Bay.  Fish of all sizes being caught.  
      The second pattern was off of Pine Island.  With a south wind, a nice bite set up in 16 - 22 feet.  Other patterns such as walleyes relating to structure are also in play.  
      Hammered gold, pink, yellow, orange and red / white are colors doing well.  It is a good idea to use something different from your fishing partner until the walleyes tell you what they want that day.
      On the Rainy River...   A mixed bag on the Rainy River this week.  Most walleye anglers focus on the lake this time of year but nice pockets of "local" walleyes are in the river year round.  Holes, current breaks, rock piles and weed edges can all hold fish.  Pull spinners or troll cranks to find scattered fish.
      Pike adjacent to weeds and current breaks.  Smallmouth bass in great numbers and they don't get much attention.  
      The sturgeon "keep" season continues through Sep. 30.  Catch and release Oct 1 - April 23, 2022.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing up at the Angle this week.  Much like the south end, one area to consider is the deep mud of Little Traverse Bay.  Walleyes are set up over mud in 28 - 33 feet.  Spinners and crankbaits are effective in covering water and catching these fish.  
      There is so much fun structure to fish where pods of walleyes are hanging out.  Underwater points, sunken islands, and neck down areas are just a few also holding walleyes.    
      Pike are usually willing to play and continue to be active in weedy bays.  Spinnerbaits, spoons, crankbaits and bucktails are good choices.  
      Smallmouth bass are relating to deeper rocks.  Some nice muskies caught and released again this week.
      Canada announced driving over the border will be possible August 9th for fully vaccinated Americans who have a negative PCR COVID test less than 72 hours old. Other ways 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 from the south end of the lake.

      On the south end...  We are in the heart of a great summer walleye pattern on LOW. This means good fishing is taking place with two primary methods, pulling spinners with live bait and trolling crankbaits.
      Most anglers are targeting walleyes in 30-34' of water over deep mud. Lots of big fish being caught.  The scattered reefs are holding fish as well.  Spinners and crawlers have been very effective.  Hammered gold, pink, orange and red / white spinners doing well.
      Trolling crankbaits and covering water over deep mud has also been effective.  Anglers getting cranks deep in a number of ways.  Leadcore line, a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with a 6' leader, snap weights or downriggers are all viable options.
      On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River is a great option on windy days, small boats, kayaks or for a change of pace.  Fishing the river producing walleyes, saugers, smallmouth, pike and sturgeon.  
      If targeting walleyes, holes, current breaks, rock piles and weed edges can all hold fish.  Pull spinners or troll cranks to find fish.
      The sturgeon "keep" season continues through Sep. 30.  Catch and release Oct 1 - April 23, 2022.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great summer walleye fishing this week.  Fish in various areas including  the mud, structure such as sunken islands and underwater points and rocky areas.
      Most anglers drifting spinners with crawlers or minnows and trolling crankbaits.  
      Pike continue to be active in weedy bays using crankbaits and bucktails.

      Curious how the depth is in river from Wolf lake to Andrusia and Cass. Is it navigateable.  Was  up there last September and went through there. Kind of scenic and nice slow ride on the mighty Mississippi.  Did get a few fish as well.  Hopefully going there again this year.  Staying at my brother's cabin with his son and my dad near Becida. With dad in his early 80s hoping to keep this 3 year tradition going for a while.

      Heard from an island neighbor (Church Island) next to ours that a bear killed a small dog yesterday around 8:00 pm on an island in Frazer Bay. Also, my other island neighbor to the east (Juniper Island) reported three bears yesterday and one chased after their labrador retriever.  
       
      Watch your pets friends, some of these bears are very aggressive!

      On the south end...  A lot of summer walleyes are being caught and fishing has been good.  
      Not all walleyes are targeting the same forage consequently walleyes are being caught shallow to deep.   Many of the shallow fish are eating crayfish or schools of baitfish.  Deep fish feeding on baitfish, mayfly larvae, blood worms, tullibees and the list goes on!
      Most anglers are targeting walleyes in 30-34' of water over deep mud.  The scattered reefs can always hold fish as well.  Spinners and crawlers have been very effective.  Hammered gold, orange and red / white spinners doing well.
      Trolling crankbaits has also been effective.  This technique puts your lure in front of a lot of fish and will get those "reaction" bites even when fish aren't actively feeding.  Pink UV Firetiger, chrome/blue and shiny golds are good colors to start with. 
      On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River producing a variety of fish.  Walleyes, saugers, smallmouth, pike and sturgeon are in the mix.    
      If targeting walleyes, holes, current breaks, rock piles and weed edges can all hold fish.  Pull spinners or troll cranks to find fish.
      The river is a great change of pace, is beautiful and doesn't receive a lot of traffic during the summer months.
      The sturgeon "keep" season opened July 1st and is open through Sep. 30.  Catch and release Oct 1 - April 23, 2022.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes being caught.  Some fish over the mud, others hanging around structure and a few in shallow rocks eating crayfish.  
      Anchoring up with jigs and minnows or leeches on the spot on the spot can be effective.  If fish aren't there, move and find them.  Most anglers drifting spinners and crawlers and trolling crankbaits over deep mud areas.  
      Pike are active in weedy bays using crankbaits and bucktails.  
      With the Canada border still closed, there are a few 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 from the south end of the lake.

      Day 3 of using nothing but drop shots, wacky rigs, and jig and craw took me to Wisconsin to see if I could continue my newfound favorite lures. I went to Church Pine Lake, just east of Osceola. Never been here before, so had no clue what to expect. Turns out to be a nice little lake for a small boat such as mine. Lots of potential here, but fishing was tough today. Most fish came on the drop shot on the deep weed edges. 6 bass and 1 little pike. Highlight came at the very end of the day, where I caught a 21 inch bass right in front of the access. Best way to end the day 😁

      On the south end...  Another really good week of summer walleye fishing.  Walleyes are being found in many areas but most are targeting deep mud in 30 - 34' of water.
      A nice mix of eaters, slots and quite a few trophy walleyes over 28 inches caught this week.  Spinners with crawlers / leeches or trolling crankbaits have been the most effective techniques.  
      Good spinner blade colors to start with are hammered gold, red / white, gold / glow, pink, orange or chartreuse.
      Crankbait colors, pink UV firetiger, chrome / blue, firetiger.  It is good to start with different colors / shapes / action of cranks when fishing with other anglers and let the walleyes tell you that day what they want.    
      On the Rainy River...   The river produces a mixed bag of fish during the summer months.  Walleyes, saugers, smallmouth, pike and sturgeon are all available.

      So I'm fairly new to the area my boys love fishing as do I . We have been attempting for the past couple of weeks to find a place we can fish without a boat. In between Brainerd and Little Falls. Also times of day to go. We love fishing I'm a newbie as well so just looking for ideas please and thank you.

      Going up to GM 16th through the 21st bringing my 14fter was looking at Ball club and east west twin for walleyes. Anybody fish these before or am I just better off smallie fishing on Two Island or trout in Kimball. I know JB and Moose will have some feedback so what say you ? going up with the wife and 8 yr old grandson they will be kayaking me fishing. Although grandson will probably want to be fishing with me. Appreciate any feedback from you guys thanks.

      Counting the days, and looking for cooler weather also. As always, your  pictures are excellent !  How is the fire situation, and what is the lake level ? I'm worried BIDEN is going for another lock down, which isn't going to play out well here. Pray for the best, prepare for the worst. Thanks as always for the pictures !!!

      My wife and I were out on Tuesday from noon to 3pm. Light east south east wind using jig and minnow. We caught over 30 walleyes with quite a few double headers. The biggest was 23” and another 7 in the 18”-21” range. 10 were in the 14”-17” slot range but did not keep any with the rest being 12”-13”. Water temperature was at 73.5 degrees. Air temperature was at 86 degrees.

      Been awhile since any reports so here goes.  A tough summer this has been. Never saw so many weeds yet there is very little wild rice. Fishing has been tough to say the least.  No real pattern, nor walleyes are not in there usual summer haunts it seems. Been so slow we headed up to Leech last week for a Musky trip.   Non caught but four follows,   one on Pelican reef that was in the mid 40" range.  Then back to Whitefish for a few more hours of no activity.  Even the panfish are slow.  Anybody with any better reports lets here them.  Lord send some rain.

      I bought an old fashioned tv antenna and mounted it on my deck. I get CBS, NBC and my network. I’m on the north side of Pine

      Not up there but camper in Nisswa, mn. I bought a really big like 12' foot long antennae on about a 15' pole.  I was only getting about 3 channels in but I bought one of these powered pre-amp's at Fleet Farm and now get about 12 channels and can watch the Viks again! 👍 It helps to keep turning your antennae and running a channel search until you find the right spot.  Good Luck.
