7/13 South Side Report

Recommended Posts

AaronM

Fishing has been very solid these past few weeks on the South Shore. Things are slowing down a bit, but there are still plenty of fish to be caught. Pulling cranks in the 6-9 foot range has been steady, but decent action is still to be found with spinners in 11-17 feet.<P>It was a beautiful evening out on the pond tonight despite the weather we had earlier.. The more active fish were definitely out in the deeper water. It took me a bit to find out that much, but it was fast fishing once I got into 'em. Raps were the ticket under 10 feet. How did everyone else do? <P>FF <p>[This message has been edited by fishingfrenzy (edited 07-13-2004).]

July 8 and 9 were good to me up by the angle and at garden. We never found anything shallower than 16ft and never found a big fish but no dinks either. Nice quality fish. We released a few 20" and up and kept a few 16-19". Saturday we fished the tourny and got skunked in the same spots. What a different day that was. All in all a great time.

I agree--the shore bite has really lasted this year. I ended up fishing alone on Saturday plus I got a late start so I stayed south. I caught a few off Pine running a #8 shadrap in 13 feet but as I have my RBCP and Ontario license I headed over to Sable. Lots of fish in the Ontario sand. Just before the storm I pulled a #9 in 20 feet in front of the washout and the bite was pretty good there too. Never got real shallow but will probably try that this weekend. There were still several charters fishing shallow in the gap and the radio chatter indicated good activity baitfishing but lots of little ones.

A little late info but we fished the south shore over the weekend of the 4th and it was spotty at best- mostly small fish. We fished Knights and Bridges area on the 1st and did real well, then pounded them on the sandbar on Friday and Saturday. Alot of nice fish in the 18-23" range. Figured we caught well over 150 fish on Saturday, in three boats, from 8:30 till 2:30. We just had enough for the day as they were still going at 2:30. Best fishing in the 5 years we have been doing the trip.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.

      I bought a used boat and I had the dealer install my Lowrance HDS on the dash. There was already two Lowrance units that came with the Boat. One mounted in the bow and the other in the dash. So when the dealer installed my HDS, the networked it to the older unit from the dash. My sonar on the HDS would only work if the dash unit was on. I really don’t know the advantages of doing this?  Anyways, this past weekend I landed the boat and the dash unit wouldn’t power up. I checked and I did have power going to the unit. Hence no sonar. I had to go old school and caught 10 eyes! Lol so my question is how do I bypass the network so I can just run the HDS? Thanks!

      Have you tried cleaning it? I have found more often than not when someone tells me their foot pedal isn't working right, I can take it apart, clean it up, lubricate it, and everything works again. If you try this, avoid grease or oil because dirt collects. I used WD-40 and it seemed to work well.
