Just got Back/LOW

Recommended Posts

Just got back this evening from 3 days at Monument Bay. The weather wasnt the best - very windy and a strange continuous South/Southeast wind the whole time. We ended up getting many nice walleyes on various presentations. Not really a small one in the bunch - average size was 18 inches with quite a few over 21. Saw a lot of fish being brought in to the resort too over 21. The best action was in a shallow grassy inlet in 8 feet of water fishing right next to the rock wall - about 1 to 2 boat lengths out. We bounced a chartruese jig and twister tail tipped with a leach. The last day the smallies started to finally move in and we caught 5 while just fishing for walleyes. We were casting in the same small grassy inlet for Northerns during the afternoon - and I had a 48 to 50 inch Muskie totally clear up and out of the water and miss my lure. ( Muskie doesnt open until next weekend - but it was fun to see it crash up and out of the water!) Lastly , the best times for the walleye bite was from 6 to 8 in the morning and 6 to 8 in the evening.

My dad was up this weekend out of the Rainy River, and they didn't have any luck at all. They really didn't get to fish. I guess it was a southwest wind running right down Pine Island from West to East. He turned around and went back in on Sunday morning after looking out through the gap. <P>I'm watching the weather for this weekend hoping it will be nice with favorable winds.<P>Ryan

Just got back from the Long Point area. We had mixed results with the best luck over on "the fields" and by Twin Islands. We caught fish from 12 feet to 30 feet. Mostly small 10-14 inchers but we managed a few in the 20's and my biggest just over 27 inches. The weather was terrible most of the week and we could not find that magic 60 degree water temp anywhere. Minnows and spinners were the best for us.

Hoffer,<BR>Good to hear you guys did well. My report about mirrors yours. The weather wasn't the greatest but the fishing was great. Our biggest was only 24 1/2" but the 20 - 23 inchers were coming quite easily. We had a couple flurries in the evenings that were incredible. Caught all my fish on lindy's & leech or gold jig & leech. Would like to say thanks to the gang at Flag Island Resort. Great bunch of helpful folks.<BR>Tully

We had three boats out between Springsteel, and River access on Sunday, and we all did quite, we were actually just shy of twelve people limiting out. The morning, when the wind was pretty strong and steady, most of the fish were in 13-15 of water. When the wind died a bit in the afternoon, we could get a bite any deeper than 5-6 fett, with the great majority in 2-4 feet of water. Gold spinners with minnows or leeches out performed nightcrawlers at least 3 to 1.<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

Fished out of the Zippel Bay area yesterday and caught 8 in three hours before the rain forced us to leave. All fish were caught in 10-12 feet of water with leeches on spinners or a plain hook. Could not get a bite on minnows or nightcrawlers. Spinner color did not seem to matter.

I am going to be up this weekend with my wife and kids. Looking for any updated fishing reports and/or suggestions about where to put in. In the past, I fished out of Zippel Bay Resort. Wondering where the best public access is between Zippel Bay and Wheeler's Point. Thanks. Jim

Zarkohl (Jim)<BR> Check the LOW Get Together Thread. You are certainly welcome to join us over by Warroad on Saturday, I can pretty much guarantee you put quality fish in the boat, with the added bonus of meeting some fellow FMers. Just a thought, but the West side should be as good a place as any. <BR> BTW, I'll be staying at a cabin near Zippel Bay if you want to follow me over Saturday morning.<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

WalleyeJon: I will be staying near Upper Red for Friday and Saturday night. Plan on taking my two boys (9yrs & 6yrs)fishing for crappies on Friday and then a day trip to LOW on Saturday for some walleyes. (First time to LOW for them). I had planned on fishing around the Zipple Bay area. Given that I have only one day and am bringing the wife and kids, I am thinking that an FM get together and/or traveling to Warroad may be a bit much. Sounds like the fishing has been good in the area, so I think I will stay with my intial plan. But thanks for the invite. If you have any suggestion on landings in the area and/or where to fish, you can e-mail me at [email protected] Thanks, Jim

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
