Anyone been making it out?

It's been unusually quiet here in the St. Cloud forum as of late. I know the weather hasn't been the best, but I still have been seeing alot of boats on the area lakes. So, either everyone is doing good, or they are having a tough time. How has your open water season been so far?

As long as the indians keep destroying mille lacs and they have slot limits I will stay away. Not my kind of fun.

Went out today and checked my top 5 panfish areas on the chain and only 2 were holding fish. Those 2 looked very promising and I will have to try them soon.

I will be heading out to the chain this evening to see if I can't connect with a few eyes. Any idea what depths have been working? If nothing else I am sure I can find some current areas and play with the kitties.

5-10ft for the walleyes, shallower if you can find a place with wind causing waves to crash into a shoreline.

South Central area lakes seem to be doing very well at least for me. Fished 6 of the last 8 days and most days, boated 40 plus gills, numerous crappies and plenty of eyes.

I have kept a few meals but the majority are still roaming the water.

Gills all in close to the shoreline but not quite spawning yet or at least the majority.

Eyes have been from 2fow -15fow for the best action.

Water temps are still in the 61 degree range.

That was my plan, but when I finally made it to the lake the wind had pretty much died down. So I started at the 22 bridge and never left, caught a few eyes nothing to write home about, a nice northern that I did take home, and only one catfish. So I was pleased since I only spent 3hrs on the water.

      Any new hot jigs coming out yet?

      for some reason my replies got deleted? but yes, you guys are right, the startup on the ac unit is double the running watts; also coleman mach got back to me about the thermostats, he said they're all compatible to run off of thermstats, you would need to install a control box in he unit so it can communicate with the thermostat

      Cliff thanks for the updates.  Do you think the hatch will be done by next weekend?

      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think.
