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.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
