i was out on it 3 times now and have caught a total of 5 of them for about 6 hours out there. i dont know what happened to them. i fished in the main 15 ft hole. last year i would catch them just as fast as i could rebait. i did however catch a ton of perch. all little but it kept me entertained for a while. anyone else been out there or have any ideas what the deal is?

maybe winterkill?

i guess thats possible but i would almost doubt it because its not THAT shallow of a lake and last winter wasnt that bad....but i dont know much about it. its deffinatly a possibility.

it wasn't winterkill at all, it was later in the spring, june I think. I contacted the DNR and they said it was a combination of the spawn and a gill parasite. in my opinion, its probally what this lake needed, as there were far to many small crappies in there. maybe now we can grow some slabs.

Heres what i know about fleming lake this winter, i hit the ice during halftime of the vikes poor showing against the bears on sunday and got off the ice just as the game was gettin done. During this time i had drilled 4 holes, all of which showed fish in them, i had landed about 3 limits of crappies, some odd sizes of perch, and one nice bluegill. Maybe i hit it on a good day but i think that if you move around and find the fish most others can do well also.

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too. 
    • delcecchi
      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
