Frozen Goldeye Works Great for Cats!

Recommended Posts

Guest

ATA Boy Bruce!

We were on the same wavelength today, frozen goldeye and some frosty frogs.

My clients from today seen you on the River yesterday. They didn't do as well in that area yesterday but we made up for it today. A lot of peckers but the nicer cats hit the bait well.

Catch ya on the river Bruce!

My son and I fished north of the Johnson Park landing yesterday. The catfishing was great. We caught at least one catfih at every spot we anchored the boat to fish.

We used frozen goldeye cutbait, fresh sucker cutbait, and shrimp for bait. The frozen goldeye seemed to be the best of the three.

I had never tried frozen goldeye cutbait before, but was very impressed with how well it worked.

I used a "Food Saver" system to vacuum seal the goldeye for freezing. It also helps to have a folded over paper towel section about 4 layers thick and 3 inches wide above the fish in the bag . By doing this, any moisture that is sucked from the fish during the vacuum sealing process will lodge in the paper towel rather being sucked to the end of the bag making it hard to get a good seal on the bag. I froze the goldeye whole and then steaked them into pieces one inch wide while stll frozen. These strips stayed on the #6 gamakatsu circle hooks well and the cats seemed to like it too!

Get out there and catch some cats, they are hungry and ready to eat!!! Bruce

The cats had a bad case of "lockjaw" yesterday! I fished all my good spots south of town from the Convent Landing to the Wild Rice River and only ended up catching 4 cats. We got a lot of nibbles but the cats didn't seem very interested in helping us activate the clickers on our reels! We need some more nice days to warm the water to get those cats in the feeding mode.

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
