Paul, do you think I will be able to drive out with the yellow banana Friday?

There is know way we are going to let the banana out. With the lack of snow cover that yellow glob will be absolutely blinding. laugh

As things currently stand we should be open to vehicle traffic this weekend.

The Sasquatch isn't completely done, but it really needs to make it's maiden voyage. Will be bringing the hubby and my sweet little Lola (my great dane) this should be an adventure. I wonder which one will annoy me the most. laugh

I'll be in the 22h "premiere" house this weekend with nine others. Not planning on catching ANY fish, so anything more than that is a bonus! Under-promise and over-deliver!

I didn't plan our trip, and it was origionally planned to be out of the wharf. I changed the planners mind solely because of this thread, and because of others confidence in you paul. Your doing a lot of networking here without even knowing it (or maybe you do wink ) I'll be calling tonight to discuss ice conditions, parking, etc.

Another Kudos to Paul and the gang for a great weekend.

The 3 of us that stayed in FH11 had a great time.

We brought home 4 Walleyes in the slot, had to release many more and like bassfishng said, we also had the largest around 27", also was able to connect with a few Perch.

Thanks BF24 for the spot out near the flat. Very nice to meet you and your group.

Very nice to meet you too Rippinlip. Was hoping those perch would have bit a little better. Was marking them all over but wouldn't bite. Oh well...still a great time.

Well our group partied way too hard...so while they were sleeping i pulled in 90% of the fish our house caught. Had to wake the group up for this pig though.

Fun trip. Thanks Appledorns!

FLAG!!

Paul- hoping to head up Friday if I can figure out how to get the day off. What time are you open and available in the am to fill us in on ice conditions?

A couple weeks ago we were going to walk out from Hunter Winfields but were met with a post it note on the door saying "don't knock or ring the doorbell until 8am".. not the greatest thing to see at 645/7am when you're hoping to fish the sunrise.

How much ice do you got up there? This cold snap should help all the resorts up on Mille Lacs!

Thanks for the info

ALL IN

I fished all day sat. I started at Appledorns about 8 and eventually drove all the way to Isle bay. Never found less than 16in. of ice and I drilled in about 20 different places. Marked ALOT of fish and caught a few. had a few spots just stacked with fish and could only coax a few to bite. Went home with 1 slot eye (caught 6) and 10 jumbos, but for all the fish I marked it was a rough day. Driled close to 100 holes from 10ft to 34ft.

Paul, can we drive a 1/2 ton to the mudflats in your area yet? If not, how much longer do you think it will be?

Thanks.

Midcoast,

Not even close to travel to the mud from our end of the lake yet. I don't believe that you can currently access any of the flats from any side of the lake yet.

      Nice walleye, I have caught several walleyes while fishing crappies. If there are smaller 4-6 inch crappies around there will be Walleyes not far away.  Lately several guys I have chatted with claim they see crappies on the Vex's but they won't bite.  I wonder if those are really shiners?  As there are lots of shiners in Buffalo lake, and several other lakes here in central Mn, have large amount of shiners roaming the lakes.  I use minnows in several different areas,  and sizes can make a difference as well.  If the crappies are biting good, even fatheads will work and take the bigger ones at that. if it's slow smaller minnows, down to a size 16 trout bug on a drop shot.

      been there a time or 2 Cret!  hope your back is feeling better!!
    • jigginjim
      I had a cheaper unit I would leave out to save time fishing, not like it cost me a lot of money. Once it was banked up, it was well worth leaving it on the lake, saved about 30 minutes banking time and drilling holes.
    • jigginjim
      Sounds good, going up on Wednesday, fishing through Saturday. Would like to get a good mixed bag of fish.  May bring some 7-up & butter, for the pout.  bring lots of Jigs, spoons and other baits.  It has been a fews years since my last trip to LOTW,  been hitting lots of other lakes.
    • jigginjim
      Just all depends on your choice of area, which access you go out from?  Been a while since I was out there chasing the fish around.  Although the tullies, do sound like lots of fun.    
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Here’s part two of this post I guess! Got out with my older brother this morning.  Headed north to a area neither of us have really been to before. To our surprise we both limited on some dandy pike (spearing) in a couple hours! Was a great time and ended with some good eats! Great weather as well other than the front moving through. Over all we seen a very good amount of fish but they weren’t super aggressive today with the cold front rolling through. Ooh yeah if anyone was wondering area.... BLA. 
    • monstermoose78
      I release all gills over 8 inches and I release most fish i catch. The photo was of one of a few nice ones released today. I was able to chat with some young guys who were impressed with the number of fish I was catching. They all asked why I was not keeping all of the gills and I said I only keep them when I am going to eat them as they are best fresh. I also explained the importance of release bug bluegills and to eat those 7-8 inchers. Both you guys said that make sense and both said they would release the big gills from now on.

      Fished several NE Wright county lakes got on some really nice bass with panfish jigs the smaller the better. Had a flurry for about half hour many largemouth caught. Then did a night bite for the crappies It really pays to move around. Also learned from some on the MInnow or not to minnow thread to upsize I used a small forage minnow spoon with 3-4 spikes that really was the ticket. Thanks all for the help everyone. The fish seem to me to be just starting to move a bit shallower with the warmer weather coming this weekend it should just get better. Most of the fish were in 12-17 feet of water.
    • Jasopete
      Yes we made one trip into Little Johnson, planned on spending the day up there and had a thunderstorm move in around 3pm, got out of there pretty quick as it was a 45 minute boat ride back. Caught a bunch of Smallies up there but no Walleye.  We will hit Little Johnson harder this May when we go.
    • Dan85
      I fished Dog many years ago. All it had at the time were small crappies. But population seemed pretty good. Always caught fish.
