Whitefish or Tulibee?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard any reports of whitefish or tulibee being caught recently?

There are many tulibee mixed in with the walleye and sauger.  Deeper water and mud are the places to search out a good school of them.

I know where to look but I'm just curious how the bite has been for them.

In my experience, they aren't showing up as often as they were only a year or two back.  Couple winters back they were prolific.  Couldn't go anywhere without getting into at least a half dozen of these buggers.

I caught one on Monday, in 32 feet of water, but it was a dandy!  At least 3, maybe 3 1/2 lbs.?  As usual, this fish was suspended about 12-14 feet off bottom, and as soon as I reeled up to it, it quickly turned and hammered my bait.  It'll be a dandy for the smoker!

I don't know very much about these deep water, pelagic fish.  They must go in population cycles...kinda like crappies?  Fast growing, short life cycle???  Maybe just me, but I'm just not seeing nearly as many as we did a couple winters ago, and I'm primarily fishing the same areas.

This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.

      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
