Farm Island...Hot Bite!

Recommended Posts

Jeff S

The rock bass are on fire on Farm Island! There BIG too! And there everywhere!

Be prepared if fishing walleyes. Used 4 dozen redtails way to fast especially at 8 bucks a dozen. They loved my leeches even more.

Did you get any Walleye. I am going to a Cabin on that lake in two weeks, and was woundering what to expect for walleyes. Can a guy troll plugs and stay away from the bass? Any info would be greatly appreciated never been there before.

I talked to the owner of Sunset View in the spring about getting an RV into a spot there. It didn't work out for us but found out the guy was really nice. He and his family are relocated from New Jersey. I have yet to stop in and talk with them. We have a cabin on a nearby lake. I think we are gonna go out there this weekend and try forthe night bite.

They seem like good folks. She cut us a great deal on a nicer cabin and said she wouldnt charge us for using boat landing or docking bost. Which doesnt seem like much but hey, a buck is a buck. We may get one for the rest of the season if the weekend goes well. *fingers crossed*

my girlfriends parents have a trailer they own in there, great place, every august they have a tournament for all sorts of species, great place to be, you will like it, i plan on being up there at about 11pm on saturday night after work. I will be in a red lund rebel, as you go in the trailer is the log sided one right before the playground, red s10 is my truck, hope to chase the eyes in the evenings but bass are the priorities, swing in I can show you a spot that is catching nice eyes while fishing bass on a drop shot rig, the spot is only about 15 x 20, pretty small area but a ton of fun!

Another thing, if for some reason Im not the only red lund rebel out there, like lunds are not popular up there, I am either wearing Signature tackle pro shirt and hat in red white and blue, or I am decked out in clothing from my work,(sportsmens wharehouse)

gr & dadshamp....The walleyes have been hit or miss for me with most of the fish caught in the 16"-19" release slot. Keep about 3 for every 10 you catch. The eye's are getting deeper but some can still be caught on the weed edges. It has been a below average bite for me this year but there are still a few to be had.

Good luck!

Thanks Chris. I'll be stopping in this week some time and loading up. Maybe have you point out a few spots on the lake map book for me.

Side note, THESE FORUMS ROCK!...LOL

My Suburban has been in the shop getting a new transmission and I have not been able to do much fishing due to a shoulder, neck and back injury combined with my small boat makes things a bit uncomfortable after a short amount of time. After settling my personal injury case, I figured, "Screw it. I deserve a new boat and gear!!" Mama agrees smile.gif She loves to fish too! lucky me. Anyway, thanks everyone for a great forum and excellent advice. It's got he blood boiling again and am really looking forward to using the advise that ya'll have given me.

See ya on the water!

Jim

Well here is my report, saturday morning woke up and fished bass on topwaters for two hours caught six, pretty slow only hits were in 6 to 8 feet of water, lost one that was probably 5 pounds boatside, nice little tail dance on the water and 3/8oz terminator buzz bait coming back at me. few northerns, pretty slow, did a couple of parties and pig roasts, then went for a boat ride in the little red speed boat if any of you are familiar with seeing that, which was fun, went back out and girlfriend wanted to fish sunnies, so we went behind johnson point and she caught enough sunnies to eat her heart out, 9 or ten bass, all nice ones, caught on senkos and white terminator, same as the morning ones. and one huge dogfish. Went in for a while putzed, went back out to ruby's for a little over an hour until we got chased out by the rain. caught 8 bass in the "slop" which wasnt much of slop on wiggle wogs, which worked excellent.
sunday morning went out with the whole family to chase some eyes out by the island, very windy and rough, but in 42 minutes we boated 5 fish four in the slot an one keeper, a couple of northerns.
Went out after dinner then by ruby's fishing an nice break, three hours we caught six walleyes one 23,21,18,17,16 and one 15.5 more northerns. so it was a fun night. all of our fish were caught in atleast 26 feet of water except the 23 and 21 which were caught on the top of the bar.
here is my email, drop me a line if you have any questions or need to be shown a few spots for any species. huskiesplayer15 at yahoo.com.

I have a guy interested in it but Im not sure how serious he is. It's just a V16 Alumacraft with a 20hp Chrysler. Runs great, just not real functional for me due to my injury.

I'll be either on the Farm or on Pelican this weekend, or maybe Mille Lacs muskie fishing this weekend but I'm leaning toward the Farm.

I haven't caught a walleye shallower than 20' in three weeks.

Hey guys, where have youu been catching your eyes? You said 26 feet, cause I have been catching all mine in 16 feet. I've been up there fishing the last 4 or 5 weekends and the lake has been really nice fishing. The northerns are hitting non-stop. It seams like on anything white works well. Its been a great year. Ill be up the rest of the summer almost every weekend to my cabin. thanks

If anyone can give me some specifics I would greatly appreciate it. Im not a guy who is able to hit the lake every weekend, but would really like a decent weekend in my new boat. (gotta convince Mama that the new boat and sonar are worth the investment...lol) e-mail me at [email protected] with anything that would help.

This forum rocks, you guys rock. smile.gif

THANKS!!!

Jim

      I will try to make it Nick.  Should be a go unless a I have a grand kid birthday party to attend.

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.
    • Walleye Guy
      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄

      so anyone know whats up with snowfighter???????? he hasnt posted in a long long time?????? hope all is well with him. my parents bought the cabin from his dad!!!!!!
