Another Successful trip with Jonny and Kelly P

Recommended Posts

00rowe

Another trip with the Waskish Minnow Station brought on the same results as previous years with a few twists. We arrived at the six man sleeper on Thursday around 1 p.m., via a secret route with countless twists and turns to one of Grandpa P's old secret spots, Thank God for a compass or we wouldn't have known which way was up. We were catching fish within the hour we arrived, enough to have a big fish fry yet that night. On Friday afternoon the Pike action heated up, with 2 35" and a 38". We didn't catch any crappies, but the abundant walleye's in the 14-20" range more than made up for it, around 70 in all, and a few bonus 11" perch, in under 2 days of fishing. Pink glow seemed the most consistant, shiners outfished the fatheads, and deadsticks more productive than jigging. Pike ate 2 big shiners and 1 fathead, nothing on the suckers. There were a few walleyes each night caught on the rattle reels. Thanks again to Jonny, Kelly, and Patsy for an awesome trip, I'll send some pics as soon as I can.

Nice report. I can't wait to be up fishing in one of their 2 man sleepers next weekend. Was there a particular time of day / night that saw the best action?

The action was pretty steady, there were a couple of "runs" in the morning and again late afternoon, the bites at night were bunched together, a couple around midnight, maybe 1 am, never looked at the watch, just caught the fish, rebaited and back to sleep. Pike were all after 2:30 p.m. but before dark. The bite was a little slower this morning with the east winds, hopefully some steadier weather will get the bite going again. Good luck.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
