01-11-09 report Adrians Road...

6 of us fished yesterday about 8 miles out from Pine Island. We rented through Bayview Lodge. Fishing was pretty slow, we caught 20-25 and kept 8 or 9. The walleyes were nice 15-18" and the saugers were small. We were in about 34' of water. The best bite seemed to be from noon to 2pm. A plain white glow hook and a chub worked the best. I lost a monster walleye at the hole. Even though fishing was slow, we still had a great time with my wife's son's and their fiances. I'm hoping to make it up in late March for a walleye/northern trip.

We drove out on Adrian's road and rented fishhouses from Bayview. Their houses are nice and we've never had any issues renting from them. The cabins are nice too by the way.

I am heading to Bayview Thur Morn. I have been there a few times and the shacks and cabins are very nice. Others I go with have been going for many years and like the accomodations. The prices are reasonable. We rent 2 cabins and 3 shacks. Last year we had one person his a ice ridge and pop a tire. They were very helpful on getting him help and on his way.

It seems that everytime we go it is cold!

      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.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      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.

      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.

      I just got a report from nextdoor that we have 8-10 inches.
