Where to go this weekend

Recommended Posts

mrklean

Im coming up to the St cloud area this weekend and am taking my g/f out fishing, since graduating i havent fished up there since last winter. What a decent lake to at least keep her entertained for a few hours. I always fished pearl, grand, little rock and a little bit of pleasant when i was up there. I dont think i would go to the chain though.

Something against the chain? Heck of a multi species destination. Not that there is anything wrong with grand , pearl, and pleasant if you like catching tater chip size panfish and tiny northerns lol. Just kidding they can be good lakes. They are getting a few fish on pleasant down in the second group of houses farthest from the access.

I guess I just Jim'd ya, check out the thread in this forum about Camp Lake! I was waiting for a HA HA pink. Although the jury is still out on it. Also, if you are fishing around St. Cloud, from what I read elsewhere, it is mountain lion area so be alert wink

If you looking for action Rice is hard to beat right now for crappies. Size is tough to come by but she'll be setting the hook alot.

I have to agree with you Borch. LOTS of little fish so if you want action, it's a pretty good bet. Lots of traffic out there though. Was out Sat night overnight and pulled in some (all under 10" one that was 12"). Eyes were quiet. Rattle wheels didn't ring at all. Fishing in 20 fow. Their were a lot of guys moving their houses the next morning.

I read the post for camp lake and it sounded like I shouldn't even waist my time. And then I talked to my buddy and he had said that they do pretty well when they go there. Nice size crappies and eyes when there biting.

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's
    • delcecchi
      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck

      Thanks Hoey.

      Good luck.  There are a gazillion of those corner caps online.
