22 hours straigh on Waconia..

Recommended Posts

So yea this is the official report going off 2 hours sleep in a 48 hour period.

Got out there about 9 pm last night and decided I wanted to pull an all nighter and try some night spots. Started out in 22 feet of water on Reds Reef and not so much as marked a fish. Left...

Drug the portable 5600 behind my jeep with my friend in the back hatch holding the rope, we drove all the wa across the lake with moderatly heavy snow falling and me almost pi$$ing myself laughin at my friend in the back cause hes haning out the hatch with a rope pulling my house and its all over the place. half way there he says "wow this just got wayy heavier" stop get out and one of the hole covers popped off and I had prolly 2 feet of snow packed in there. GGRRR shoveled it out and on our way we go to head for Christopher Quasts house..

Get there and I talk to him on the phone and LEt me tell ya Chris is a GREAT guy. Very generous and for the 2nd time in a week let us stay in his perm house and sleep and fish and he wasnt even there. What a great guy!

caught some very nice 11" crappies that night around 3am, slept 2 hours and caught some nice perch and crappies and some sunfish all morning. then we ventured out to unmarked spots and tried away from the crowd... no luck at all. Finally set up on the west side of lake and got some more nice crappies and nice panfish and the minute the sun set the fish turned off like a light bulb. NOTHING would even nibble no matter what we threw at em. Got to hang out with Buckkiller for a few minutes and MNFishtrapper who happen to DROP HIS PHONE down the hole. OOPPSSS. not to mentuion my scoop found the bottom of the lake as well.

All in all a good 22 hours of challenge and catching fish and we ended up with 15 crappies total 9 to 11" a few decent sunnis and 2 perch worth keeping.

IM GOING TO BED!!!

yeah no problem. HOWEVER some guy in the bait shop got a 17 1/2 crappie weighed at 2 lb 4 oz. That would go RIGHT to the wall.

lol You didn't tell me that mnfishtrapper dropped his phone down the whole... you could've called the fish and asked them to bite. He seemed like a nice guy, is he comimg to our GTG?

YEAH Man he dropped it down the hole!! I wonder how much valuable stuff you could fins scuba diving there in the summer. Wow all the stuff. jewelry, cameras, PHONEs all over im sure and tackle and rods and the possibilites are ENDLESS it was quite the exrordinary couple days out there. Im glad to be moving to bloomington next weekend the drive will be a little shorter at least. I intend on learning prior as well.

Thats the second phone I know of as of this year at the bottom of the lake LOL!!! I know it sucks I've been there before myself. Honda thanks for the compliments anytime man, anytime...

It was fun fishing with ya the other night and I hope we can get more people together for the GTG this coming Sunday, I think it would be fun to have a big cookout on the lake, maybe bring some venny dogs, and I am sure we could get plenty of other goodies together.

Hey Killa, how is the new spot paying off for ya? or did you move again, Me and Tim T's brother Mike fished Pillsbury last night and got some nice fish, but not many

Way to go, honda! Looks like you are marking some good spots.

BTW, you need some of that green indoor/outdoor carpet in your house so stuff doesn't slide around so much! I don't know if you noticed or if I mentioned it but the battery pack for my finder went down the hole too when I was fishin with you the other night. luckily the rest of the unit didnt and I was able to pull it back out with the power cable.

Hope to see you guys on the 18th.

Back in the good ole days not much people were on waconia "before muckies were introduced" and now the bay is like a bowl. thats one scary lake now. but as slow as it is might have to go there tommorow since the snow is getting deep today.

Dang i am old now!!!!

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.

      Up on mille lacs isle bay. 13.5 inches of ice and half ton trucks out here. Fishing is slow. 1 Walleye last night at 845. Moving the house deeper today. 
    • Cret Jigs
      Got to work the weekend ... good luck guys!!  Will be checking in to see what these fish look like 😉
    • monstermoose78
      I am going to check some local lakes today 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.
    • Sherman
      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      Fish went deeper durring the day today. Not easy cracking the code this year
    • brrrr
      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
