Anything happening this week?

Recommended Posts

<BR>Curt, et al... Has anyone been getting out this week? Making the annual LOW run tomorrow morning from SE MN, staying on the south shore. We really like fishing the reefs, but will go wherever the fish are. I've heard a little chatter about the south shore & the west side of the lake, but nothing too concrete as of late. Any info is greatly appreciated.<P>Thanks!

Pilot--One word---Shallow--The fish may be on the reefs too, but I haven't got there yet due to wind on the days I've fished. The FM crew that's getting together tomorrow will be on the West side, and we'll be conversing on channel 8. If you want to join us, we'll be at the public landing in Warroad around 8am. How far south are you coming from? Where are you staying? Good luck.<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON<p>[This message has been edited by walleyejon (edited 06-18-2004).]

<BR>Thanks Jon! We'll certainly tune into 8, but we won't be getting up there unil mid day. Coming from Rochester area, staying at Long Point through Weds. How will you be on the water tomorrow?<P>A friend of mine just returned from Rocky Point. His best day was out on 16 mile (until somebody got sea sick). Otherwise they nickeled and dimed the fish here and there - some on the rocks, some on the shoreline.<BR>

We plan on meeting at the park around five o'clock in the afternoon. It looks like another fairly windy day tomorrow (surprise, surprise), so take your dramamine if you're heading out to sixteen, and keep the life jackets handy. I think our group will be fairly close to Warroad. Maybe from Elm Point down through the Springsteel area, and east over to the Swift Ditch. With winds forecast up to 20 mph, I'm sure most of us won't venture too far. Hope we get a chance to meet ya.<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON<p>[This message has been edited by walleyejon (edited 06-18-2004).]

<BR>I seriously doubt we'll be venturing out to 16 tomorrow with the given forecast. More than likely we'll check out a close reef or two, or maybe head the other way towards Zippel. It's doubtful we will attend the get-together. But are you going to be on the water much after tomorrow? Maybe I can get you on the radio?<P>Thanks!

Weather and headache permitting, I'll be out on Sunday. The cabin I'm staying at is actually pretty close to where you'll be. Shoot me an email, so we can exchange some contact info.<BR>jpb4u_2000(at)yahoo(dot)com<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
