What happened to the FISHING reports?

Recommended Posts

Kingfisher

Would like to see some fishing reports for LOW, good-poor or anywhere in between.<BR>Fisky; looks like the fish had you hooked at an early age. Same with me.

Kingfisher,<P>As soon as the weather straightens out<BR>fishing should take off everywhere. It<BR>has been real rainy and real windy and<BR>real cold since the opener. The fish <BR>need a couple of days to reconoider and<BR>they will begin to bite.<P>Late last week there was a good report<BR>or two from South Bufflo to Elm (there<BR>were many bad reports from the same area).<P>Zipple Bay has had pretty good fishing<BR>for those anchoring up near the green <BR>bouy right out of the jetty. Easy to get<BR>to and biting fish, sounds perfect. Over<BR>the weekend the bite improved while the<BR>weather worsened and those drifting with<BR>spinners caught some fish.<P>Morris Gap and Lighthouse Gap are good then<BR>bad. The wind has made it difficult to <BR>even be out there.<P>I have no idea how Long Point or Arnesons<BR>has been. Not many people fishing in the<BR>crappy weather.<P>The forcast for this week is sun and a little<BR>warmer. Could be a good weekend on LOW<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio

Thanks Curt, we are having the same problems in the small lakes around here. We were told two weeks ago at a local bait shop to fish deep 20-30' because the shiner minnows had not started running yet. We tried two good walleye lakes that day and got skunked. Some of the guys living on these lakes have not done anything yet either. Looks like we need some warm steady weather to get'em going.

Kingfisher, I agree--not many reports. Mine is a bit tardy but it was unavoidable. Fished last Friday mostly in the Morris Pt area. There was a fair sized pack of boats working the washout-we made one drift thru from 9 to 21 feet and saw one small fish caught. Changed to bouncers with spinner rigs and caught some decent fish. They were scattered and quite deep, but the action was decent. There was hardly any radio traffic--mostly charters changing spots and comparing notes. Mostly poor, at that. The water temp was 49 Friday morning. Sure been a strange year. There appeared to be a sizable bunch of boats in front of Lighthouse gap but quite a few boats came to the Morris Pt area from that direction.<BR>Good luck to all.

Fished for about 4 hours on Friday afternoon/evening and 3 hours on Saturday morning in the Warroad area. 2 boats caught 3 walleyes (1-25", 1-16" and 1-12") also a handful of perch. Never saw a net wave from any of the other 2 or 3 dozen boats near the Warroad blinker. Tried Elm for about an hour on Friday evening and never had a bite. Too windy to fish the rest of the weekend. Sounds like things have been really poor in the Warroad area since opener.

Hey Curt hope your forecast is right for this weekend. Heading up saturday to fish until wednesday from Iowa so I hope the weather cooperates. Down here we been getting hammered with a lot of rain. About 9" the last two weeks. Looking forward to getting back up to LOW again. We proabaly be fishing around morris & lighthouse gap mostly. Please keep the reports coming the rest of the week so I have something to look forward too.

Kingfisher, I had an abbreviated report from fri and sat on that post by 'the kidd'. Anyways fished for a bit on friday over near Pine and did suprizingly well, 3 of us got limits. I said suprizingly cause the bite so far this year has been pretty slow! Saturday spent about 2.5 hours rocking and rolling in the boat north of Springsteel....3 smallish walters.<P>One of these days they will be a turning on in a grand way!<P>fiskyknut

Paully, as wise man once told you to head north to the promise land (water)... too bad the fishing wasn't better. Later.

I did a little river fishing today instead of the big pond, and had a lot of action. I went with a husky jerk, ended up boating five 20"-30" northerns and 1 being over 30", did a little slip bobbering after that catching numerous perch and rockbass. Not a bad 2 1/2 hours of fishing. I also caught a few bullheads after dark, anyone know if those guys running in full steam yet? It would be fun to target those for a change.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
