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.

      So the weeks betwixt point and click and smoke pole deer hunting always have my ire up to get that last Musky Missile into my hands.  Gotta scrub that slime into my glove until next year.  Going to give the Mississippi below Falls a try here in a few hours.   Might find it frozen, might find a spot to get in.   I'll bring my boat because I'm an optimist,  but I'll bet the kayak is where i end up.    Wish me luck, otherwise I have a scheme on my mind for my favorite frozen central mn musky lake.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!
