Input appreciated for North of Pine and Adrian's Road

Recommended Posts

tbirath

We will be heading up this Thursday to fish North of Pine out of Adrian's road with our portables and would appreciate any input as to where to fish, should we head west or east of Adrian's road and your thoughts on how far out. Snow depth, are we restricted to the plowed roads with our truck? Appreciate any input, thanks for the help.

a group of us just came back this evening, we were up friday thru noon today. Adrians roads are in good shape, even with four wheel drive it will be near impossible to get off the plowed roads. there are some places you might be able to, but still tuff. the bite was very slow we spent most of the time in 28-32 feet of water, 2-3 miles out. we parked on the main road then pulled our portables off the road a few yards. no one color seems to do better than any other, stay near the bottom with short jigging motion. hope you have better weather than we did cold with 10-15 mph winds.

We were there from the 1st to the 4th.

There was no consistency in lures or colors except the hot lure was a chubby darter every day.

We caught the most fish in 27 feet but on other days had better luck in at 21-25 feet deep. We didnt catch anyfish in 33 feet of water.

We also didnt catch many fish in the eater size range maybe 8 for four days of fishing. We caught hundreds of small ones. In my opinion it was a pretty slow fishing or at least not exciting.

Was out yesterday on adrians road, the road itself is great, but as mentioned above getting off the road is the problem, if you have access to a snowmobile i would definitely bring it, otherwise you are going to be fishing off or very close to the road. fishing was real slow, but with the nasty wind/cold we weren't able to fish as long as we wanted. Also there was a ton of water coming up the holes, had three inches of standing water in the portable which doesn't make for a fun time. Oh well, always next weekend.

Thanks for the info, are there any side roads us portable guys can use to get away from the main road?

Yes there are alot of side roads but they are still major arteries to houses. A snowmobile would be nice to have if you have one.

You should have no problem getting off the "main" road. However, just as everyone has said you'll prolly need to use roads going east/west towards resort/lodge houses. I do this fairly often when the snow gets a little deeper...just try to stay a little ways away from the ones in use and you should be fine. Typically, not every house on their road will be in use....also a good way to tell where the resorts think fish will be....they'll try to put ppl on top of them.

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Fishing with my father and my son on Father's Day hasn't happened in a long time...so this was fun.  Helped that the storms stayed south. 1/4-1/2 mile off the border straight out from the gap in 29-ish feet of water jigging worked for us.  Limits of 17+" walleyes by lunch both days, with a handful of slots for good measure.  Hardly any sauger, though.  Jig color rotated, so if something isn't working, change it up.  Black, gold, orange, pink, white, green, chartreuse all produced at one point or another.  Not everyone was catching, and moving 1/4 mile or even a couple hundred feet made a big difference at times. We didn't try it, but heard of spinners and crawlers working up shallow (6-10 feet) along Pine Island. Mayflies are starting to hatch.  Dad saw some floaters on the Rainy on Saturday, and I saw some in town at the gas station when I left Monday morning.

      Any current reports, crappies still biting? Going to give it a go Friday morning.

      Don’t forgot the requirement for non-resident anglers to wear blaze pink any time they’re on the water! 😆 My serious advice would be to visit the nearest bait shop. My experience is that they are always helpful in helping navigate the license requirements AND get you on some fish.

      Well the weather was a bit rough here until yesterday in Cass Lake.   Lots of storms and unsettled weather.   Still finding walleyes either in 8-12 fow or 17-21 fow during the day.  Leaches or shiners have been catching fish.  At night you'll find walleyes in 4-8 fow and willing to hit various crankbaits in various colors.  Lots of smaller eyes still being caught but nice ones too

      We just got back from a week primarily fishing the east/south side.  I won't lie it was super tough, we didn't even mark fish for hours some days driving around the humps/shoreline breaks.  Usually its pretty good this time of year but this year it was brutal.  Few days we'd end up with 2 or 3 fish for half a day of fishing.  The tank at camp probably counted 35 walleyes cleaned for the week for 40 anglers.  Few slots but just not biting down that way.  Lots of pike came in and panfish.

      Tough bite for decent fish the past few days! Went out by myself this morning and switched tactics again. Trolled spinners/1/2 crawler and #4 gold Shad Raps on a 3-way rig in 24' to 30'. Had my limit of 4, 15" to 16" walleyes and a jumbo in the first hour! Released 5 other smaller walleyes also during the 2-1/2 hours that I was out. Cliff

      Went out yesterday for a little while, thought I’d just go close with the kayak given the time slot I had. Just planned on small gills and and bass, ( the normal catch in this place), but 2 18” walleyes supprised me.  A couple of loons were the only company I had while I was there. Lots of gills and bass as I expected just small in size.

      @Mike89 if I still had my traps I'd do a Crawfish Boil. Need some Cajuns to help me.
