friend needs a little help

Recommended Posts

My friend is hauling his wheel house up for a couple of days and he wants to know if he can arrange for someone to plow out a little trail and spot for him. Is there anyone that does this and if so who should he calland what can he expect to pay?

Thanks.

I went out of rogers on wen. On my way out on to the lake Jerry was plowing. He stopped me and asked if i need a spot plowed out. Also asked if i had a spot i wanted to go and i told him i had no special spot. He told me to flow him and he would put me on fish. And did he. We caught 60 plus fish a day and 2 northerns. Tell you freind to give rogers a call but i dont think he will have problem plowing you a spot.

Was up on 12-26 to 12-28 and then up again on 12-30 to 1-2 and had real good luck. Jerry plowed me a spot both times and put us on fish. The first trip caught alot of 16 to 17 inchers. The last trip we had a tough time getting limit of twelve because the fish we caught were to big!!!!! What a problem to have. Caught 3 20 plus inchers and alot of 18 to 19 inchers. There is alot of snow and we had a little water up around the house also. Will be back up as soon as I eat some fish. And can break free again, hopefully in a few days. Just ask jerry to plow a spot or find another outfitter with a blade. 20 bucks will get you in and out.

Hope you know that the walleye limit on Red is 3. See Johnny's post at the top of this forum if you are confused,

If your talking to me about the limit I do know the limit is three there was four of us in the house. The bite was steady no real set times of bite had action all day and all night Fri night was a fish or two evry hour and on wed one every cuople of hours. Like I said nothing hot and heavy just steady action. Glow jigs seemed to be the best. Jigging only produced one fish. The rattles seemed to be the best.

There are numerous guides working out of Roger's Resort on south side who will plow out a spot for you, put you on fish, check on you, and plow you out when you're ready to go home at a very resonable price. We used Joe last week and caught fish.

Just jumping into the thread. Does anyone know how to contact Jerry? My dad knows him well and I think I'll head to Rogers on Friday AM. I'd like to find him and say Hi.

I'll also look for someone to plow me a spot for my wheel house.

Someone with a plow who knows where the fish are is an absolutely wonderful thought!!

      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.

      Gotta be careful to keep the holier than thou attitude under control whatever you decide to do. After all not much difference between bass, northern (looking at you harpooners), walleye, even gills.

      I have eaten quite a few small mouth bass from Vermilion and a few large mouth bass from other lakes. The smaller small mouth are not bad table fare! The larger fish taste like mud to me! All large mouth taste like mud to me!!😛 If you were to suggest to these fishermen that eating the smaller fish will make a much tastier meal, not to mention a much safer meal because of the contaminant level in larger fish, that may make a difference in what they decide to keep.????  But as you said, they can legally keep them of all sizes. The DNR approach of a size limit would be best! Cliff

      a sign that ASKS people to selective harvest, releasing the bigger fish to keep those better fish genes in the population if you keep fish eat smaller fish...the old bill dance quote "limit your kill not kill your limit.... catch what you can use and release the rest to fight another day"
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Nice walleye Reid! How big? Cliff
    • Wanderer
      I respect your conservation minded approach but trying to TELL people not to keep those fish will just get you more of the same response you already got.  I also agree <15 inch bass are better keepers.  I keep a few myself each year and rarely keep anything over 16, preferring 12’s for the table. I’ve been a bass tournament angler in the past and have also promoted staunch C&R, much like the modern muskie culture, but have grown wiser with age.  I still target bass quite a bit just because they’re fun! On a 300 acre lake I agree a small group of anglers can and will have an impact with constant return visits to harvest large fish but the only two things you can do about it is, 1) As mentioned, lobby the DNR for protected slots, and 2) When people are happy to show you their catch, congratulate them and mention you like bass too but find the smaller sized fish much better table fare.  And maybe that you also fell releasing the mature fish keeps reproduction up to sustain a quality fishery.  And be nice about it.  Once you turn people off they’ll stop hearing you. That’s about all I have for ya.  Good luck.

      Bite was OK for us this weekend. Marked tons of fish but they only seemed to bite in small feeding windows due to abundance of mayfly larva down there. When they decided bite, they were inhaling our leeches though.  Rocks next to mud was best for us. Highlight of the weekend was walleye pictured below.
