Early Ice Walleyes - Garrison Bay Report

Recommended Posts

Bryan P

Buddy and I went out of Garrison access on Saturday. Took the ATV out to the first break and setup in 20ft. Was a tough bite with the bright sun and clear ice. Lot of lookers and not many takers. Morning had most action. 7" of ice at the reef. I need to go back up there one day for a redemption. Might try the east side next time, heard its pretty good later in the season.  Good luck to those headed up! 

 

Here is a video of our day

I fished the SE corner of the lake for a couple hours Saturday evening 3-5 p.m.  Set up on top in 15' of water and caught 3 eyes between 3:30-4:15.  All three seemed to be from the same year class @ 15/16".  10" of really nice ice about a 1/2 mile offshore.  Fun evening!

      Imagine solving insect borne vectors. A problem that has haunted mankind since we crawled out of the primordial ooze or were dropped into the garden. I think it's a bit unfair to call the MN DNR's plan to fight west nile virus in grouse incompetent.  About all they can do is monitor the situation and possibly adjust limits to compensate. Trust me, if they new how to stop it, they would. And then end Malaria, Denge Fever, and on and on.

      Its even better for smallmouth bass.  Our rivers are loaded with them and there's very little pressure.

      Almost too nice if weather yesterday and today in this area.  If I were out today with the southern winds/gusts to 30, I’d spend most of the day on my feet.  Good day to still hunt.

      Although I moved away from the area over 10 years ago I can say without reservation that the rum river has fantastic walleye fishing. There's some pigs in there besides numbers. I've also had really good bluegill fishing there too!

      Any news after day one?

      i was told that the owner of the bait shop in deer river, george passed away earlier this week. story is they figure the  kids will just close the doors. i'll miss the guy. he may have been a bit more expensive, but his extended hours and honor system made it worth the stop there. one just doesnt see that no more. i'd call him if he wasnt going to be there he'd have what i wanted in his outside fridge and off i went.   and he always was willing to talk..........alot!!!!!!!!!!

      MRGC, Welcome to the forum.    Not to take this off topic but I have been going by your range there on the end of Monti for over 30 years.  I have always wondered how long do you think your going to be able to keep it open so close to the approaching town before they drive you guys out with safety and noise complaints?  It looks like you guys have done a lot of work with the back stop and other improvements.   Thinking long-term have you thought about looking for a piece of land for a new range before the Anti's try and get you out?   Just a question I have thought about all these years.  Good luck, hope you guys hang for another 30!   🙂

      Welcome to the area!  Blue Lake and Green Lake are panfish lakes close by with the occasional walleye to be had in either but with more consistently from Green.  Briggs Lake chain is another good option for both crappies and walleyes and with it being part of the river system some size can be had for both.  Go a little south from there and you can hit up the Annandale area lakes which have walleyes and crappies.  Good Luck and let us know how ya do!
