The daily report on Bronson Dec. 3


Recommended Posts

Bronson was a little slow this morning. The only thing I came across was a 3 pound walleye. A good buddy of mine caught a 53" pike this morning. He's having me mount it for him. I've been mounting fish and deer for about 20 years now. My good buddy and I are in the process of building a 12X24 foot ice shanty. She's gonna be great for all of are relatives to come up on the christmas break to fish. Well ole fellers i'll keep you posted about the fishing on Bronson. Until tomorrow have a goody.

Hate to say it, but with out a picture, I an d no one esle will believe your 53 inch pike story.
There has been a many a tale told here. So for those of you new to this site, most of us have adorned our waders in the past and are very adept at spotting BS.

Keep the info informative and if you do indeed catch a monster we all would love to see it! Especially a 53 incher!!!!!

By the way,
it's:
Keep the rods bendin'!!!

I would love to see a picture of this alleged 53 inch Pike, I'm sure the rest of us would also. Send photo to Rick and I'm sure he would post it on the the home or reports page.

We are all waiting for the pictures. Did you get a weight on it or girth measurement? That's a heck of a fish especially because the lake is only about 54 inches long. Ha. Keep us posted on any weight information

With some creative measuring I'm sure a 53" is possible... but not too likely... I tried a while back to see what the largest pike that was caught in Minnesota was for the last Decade... funny they dont seem to keep real good records of this unless its a "record"...

I have a picture of a 49 7/8" that I caught on Lake Vermillion a few years ago... but I'm not going to say it was 53" That thing would be huge!

Howdy fellers once again. How are yuh? I dont have a picture of this 45" pike. It was just news that I heard at the bait shop. I'm headin out to the bait shop in about 25 mins. I'll give you a update on the hole event in a while. I'm starting to believe this isn't true my self.

Bronson kid, First you say its a good buddy of yours and you are mounting it for him. Then i see you said 2 local guys fell through the ice. Then you say as you can see these guys are not locals. Well you know what happens when you cry wolf to many times. At least it made for a good day of conversation. Tales Tales Tales. Ice fishing is here guys. Is there a forum just for fishing tales?????????

Howdy, the feller that told me my good buddy caught the beast said that I should get ready to mount cause he's got a big one on the way. So that's what I meant when I said I was gonna mount it for him.
And the squirrel your **** right it is ice fishin time.

I get the feeling these bronson boys are a couple of teenagers that sneaked on the internet during study hall yesterday. Maybe they were working on a creative writing assignment or something. Anyway, it sure got the regulars fired up for a day!
Am I the only TRF guy heading down to the ice fishing show?

make the trip to the show.

Instead I will have to fish LOW and possibly
Red Lake this weekend.....Darn

Bronson Boy and Bronson Kid, three days have passed and no updates from either of you, what's up?Are you still in detention or just grounded from the puter? Good stories for awhile but looks the the regs caught up to the two of you. Let me guess, were you out fishing with Uncle George and Uncle Wayne? Is that the John Deere we hear idling in the back ground? I'll keep an eye out for the big house on the lake. Stop back when detention is over. wink.gif <((((>< tnt

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.
    • SkunkedAgain
      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.

      i cant speak for out that way but check the st cloud thread.......Rick gavee a pretty decent report on the ice around the area. he fishes a ton in the winter and is thinking of calling it quits............that tells me something!!!!
    • Mike89
      be careful!!  
    • mulefarm
      Thinking about one last outing, any information on the ice?
    • Brianf.
      There's not much snow left from what I can see on our Ring cam.  This is facing North across Niles Bay.  Also, the temp is 44 at this moment so what snow might be left is going fast.  
    • rundrave
      @Rick G   have you changed your approach or how you are fishing with no snow cover this year? It seems to really have changed things. Fish are spooky to  any movement above the ice.  Even just jigging a rod with your hand etc. spooks fish. Weed lines are not dying off etc., fish are staying up shallower etc.   I have had a lot more luck just dead sticking and bobber fishing and being away from holes or intentionally drilling holes in slush pockets or drifts to eliminate shadows etc.
    • smurfy
      Awesome cause Rick!!👍👍👌
    • Rick G
      Fishing has been pretty good for the most part with the exception of a slow day mixed in here and there. Been on a few different lakes in the last week. Ice conditions continue to fluctuate depending on warm and cold spells.  Right now there is 7-8 inches on the lakes I have been on. Snow cover is just about gone again, and with the warm days coming I think our ice season might be coming to an end locally.  Today I fished with a good buddy and we were on a mission... To find enough fresh fish to feed the folks at a local veterans home Friday dinner.  Mission accomplished!!!   Found a good mix of perfect eater size fish😁.
