Recommended Posts

I have been out a few times and had decent luck on an area lake, has anyone been having any luck on lakes or rivers in the area?

I was on Sarah yesterday afternoon and into the night. It was tough. I chatted it up a little with a few other fellas out there and they were in the same boat, pun intended.

It seems Sarah is either smokin hot, or stone cold. I've had a couple absolutely wonderful days out there, and I've had my share of skunk-er-oos. Water temp was 58. My gut tells me it's gonna turn on soon.

To the fella I met yesterday at Pete's Corner. Sorry I couldn't stick around and chat it up a bit with ya. I had the itch to get on the water. You know how it is. How'd you do where you were?? Depending on what my Mrs has planned for me today I'm thinking aboot spending the afternoon on a different lake.

Im still finding it to be a little slower than I had hoped for. Lots of 1 or 2 fish evenings with nothing notable caught. If anything, my GPS is getting a few more spots for the hardwater season! I think my fising trip to Bemidji this weekend will cure all of this though! smile

I understand....I did immediately recognized you from FM. I spend alot of time around Dovray.

Caught 3...one nice keeper. Gave to my aunt....she loves fish.

I will be back the 13th for a week, hopefully casting and blasting again.

Maybe see you on Lake X

I have been catching a few little walleyes per night down here, that is when I can get off of work before it is dark - dark. I pulled in a 17.5" earlier this week. Using a small jig head and a minnow in about 6 to 7 FOW. Hopefully next week I will get into a mess of them.

I met my uncle over at Watson Dam yesterday and all we did was fry in the hot sun and get bitten up by tiny black bugs (noseeums?). My uncle did catch a large sunnie and a bunch of bullheads but all I caught was a white bass. The river was very high and if we weren't in the current, we were fishing in an eddy. While still fishing, first the line would head downstream and then after a bit, it would start heading upstream. It was pretty weird. I also tried cranks and jigs until I got tired of feeding the rocks. There were very few people fishing there, which is another indication that the fishing has been slow, no matter what Steve at Mitlyings Bait says. wink

Got a few Eyes and one nicer bass trolling Raps tonight. Of course the bite was best right at dusk. Still looking for some size though! Caught almost everything in about 6 FOW but lots of hits came pulling the Rap from the shallow water out over deeper water.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
