Walleye,Crappie by day, Big Pike by night!

Recommended Posts

Traxxx

Fishing the last few days has been very good. With all the snow, we have been seeing quite the day bite. A couple days ago we had a good bite from 11am-2pm on Gull and they ended up with six eater walleyes and a dozen perch. Crappie minnows and rainbows were the ticket. These all came off the weedline in 15 fow. The crappie/sunfish bite has been very good during the day, with small jigging spoons producing alot of fast action. The last two nights have produced a couple monster pike, after dark. Last night was a 36" on a 1/8 ounce jiggin spoon around 6:30pm and tonight was a pig 40" that hit a big spearing sucker decoy on a tip-up inside the house,around the same time. grin

Eastman,

I typically use a 1/8oz Lindy Rattlin Flyer tipped with a shiner head or a buckshot spoon with a minnowhead. On the second line, I will use a plain or glow hook under a bobber,with a whole minnow. I usually fish next to the weedlines in the mornings or evenings. During the day I will move out deeper depending on the conditions. Look for hard bottom areas,humps,points,inside turns, weedbeds..ect. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Haven't seen much vehicle traffic yet. I've pulled a house out with my truck, not too far from shore though. I think a sled would be the best option right now. You should be able find a few over by the access there.

Nice pics. Probably had something similar on last night, the battle only lasted a minute though, line broke.

      I do it because I enjoy it.  I used to do it more to harvest and eat them, but as I got older I realized that keeping fish has very little to do with it anymore.  So now I pretty much release almost everything.  I also do it for the challenge of it, especially muskie fishing.

      CigarGuy, I couldn't help but notice that the boat you're using appears to have the junk Merc fuel line that has cost boat owners a boat load of money by disintegrating the rubber liner inside and sending it downstream into your filters and carbs. The Merc is the right vintage and the line is the right (wrong) color. If you can find a speck of red or orange printing on it or if it feels soft when you squeeze it, you should cut it into pieces and toss it in the trash. If you are original owner and know 100% that non oxy 91 octane is the only type of gas ever used, maybe it will be fine. I wouldn't risk it though. Check my 'mercury fuel hose causes issues' thread on equipment and expert information forum for pics from this spring.

      Got 4 more slot fish tonight from 8 till 9:30. All between 21" and 26-1/4". had a nice one on within a minute of getting out there, but I was waiting for a boat to pass before I grabbed the net and lost it.  Sorry if it sounds like I'm bragging, I'm not, this uncharted territory for me up here 😀. Like I've said before, this lake has humbled me. This is the best wknd fishing in the 6 years we've been up here... gotta enjoy it while it lasts. Heading back to the rat race tomorrow.

      Why do I fish??!!?? It's simple. Because I NEED TO FISH!!  I mean, what else is there?? Fishing is my church. Fishing is my therapy. Fishing is my home. Fishing is my vacation. Fishing is my best friend. FISHING IS MY LIFE!! C & R IS MY FUTURE! Please let me be fishing in my final moments, or let me fish forever.

      Had a great couple of days in the middle of the lake. Plenty of 15-18”fish and too many little ones to count. Leeches mostly but fish also were active on smaller rainbows later in the day.

      Had some luck fishing walleyes in 10-20 ft in current using jigs tipped with chubs a week ago. Water was pretty cold still...upper 50s on the main lake.

      Growing up in South Dakota I learned to enjoy the fishing I got to do in the Watertown area with great grandpa and the Missouri River and Black Hills fishing with Grandpa. It's a little different than what I see here in Minnesota but the basics are the same. Seems to be more emphasis on fish size than fishery quality or maybe I was just raised different.  Either way it was always about the beauty of nature and learning a valuable skill from 2 knowledgeable individuals. Now I just try to pass those skills on to the next generation and hope they learn how to protect our resources as well as I was taught.

      same here!!! doesn't hurt to have lived close to the horseshoe chain and having a cabin in Itasca county!!!!!!   nuttin better then a meal of fish straight from the lake to the fish cleaning shack to the plate either!!!!!!
