Kingfisher

Box Car, We were up last Wed. and Sat., Wed we fished out of Arnesen's, since we heard they were biting out on the reefs. We fished Arnesen's reef among several other reefs without a bite. We moved south of Twin Rocks and picked up some smaller walleye in 8-11 fow, we tried west of Rocky Point and found more walleye in the 6'-8' break. The fish were small, we kept 11, 13"-17", put back a 20".<BR>Sat. we went out from Warroad and fished the south shore east about 4 miles, picked up only one from 8:15 AM to noon, went out to 5 mile and picked up 2 keepers and one return. The surface temp Sat started out at 59 degrees and went up to 64 degrees. We fished Buffalo a couple weeks ago with the same results, weird. We have done much better on the local lakes, returned a 30" plus walleye 2 weeks ago.

Old Guide

Boxcar, I was out fri. pm on the so. shore. The grandson "caught" about 8. We kept 3. Sat. we fished just west of willow in deeper water 14-15 ft. got 3 nice walleyes. Broke for lunch then went north to elm. Pulled plugs from elm to just west of so. buff. We got two. The lake went flat and so did the fishing (for us). Everyone in our trailer had commitments for Sun. so we pulled the pin. I did hear of some nice ones being caught on the rocks and yup people are starting to downrig. When are you comming up? Tomorrow the downriggers are going on the boat!

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
