A friend of mine caught 20 bees on l.o.w. 2 weekends ago. I hate the little stink bombs myself.
Don't tell me you eat those things.

Smoked tullibees are fantastic! Well worth that heavy smell thay have in the shack.

I took a grocery sack full into Fergus Locker a few years back. They were gilled and gutted. They brined and smoked them for seven bucks.

They were all gone in a few days.

ohh ya. tulibee's are great smoked. cut off their head and cut their guts out and brine em up over night!! get a batch outta the smoker and they dont last longer than an hour. if you like smoked fish- the tulibee is the BEST smoked fish. really oily so they stay moist and not dry. good flavor too.

Give Clitherall a shot. Right off the access on the north side is a good spot. The break there is very sharp, and you are in 50 feet of water very quickly. Watch your electronics, as they are usually suspended at several different depths.

I suggest being set up at 5am at this site, as the bite has tapered off for me after sun up.

The access on the south east lobe also has some good tullibee action in the deeper waters. Work the point coming out of the east shorline about mile and a half north of the access.

i went to clitheral today and was set up by about 7. got 3 crappies that all came in single and 3 tulibees that also all came in SINGLE!!! i dont know what to think. i didnt even read much more fish than that. i lost a couple bee's at the hole, but that was it. maybe ill go back tomorrow earlier and try a little farther out.

went to ottertail after that and fished hard to barely scrounge up maybe 15 perch, nothin to brag about, no big ones and one walleye. the wierd thing was that everyone was sayin you need to be in 35 feet of water, but i got away from the group and set up in 8 feet of water!! ever heard of an eelpout in 8 feet of water?? i also got a 9 pound northern on my NOODLE ROD!! that was a blast!


ohh ya- one quick question.. you say the bite tapered off after sunrise- but did you continue to read fish on your graph on Clitherall??

The bite would typically taper off after sun up, but there will still be a few that pass through. That 5am bite can be fantastic, but it does not happen every time. In the pre dawn, they seem to run along that breakline just off the north acess on Clitherall. Try them later on in Feb or March and they bite will probably pick up.

We were out on Ottertail on Saturday too. No tulibees, but we were chasing perch. 21 to 38 feet, it really did not seem to matter. We caught fish as fast as we could put the lines down, but not many were over 9 inches.

i fished all over ottertail, and i had a tough time finding the perch. i tried all over the north side, drilling holes with my HAND AUGER!! and finally after my arm was about to fall off, i just fished open holes. finally got off the lake and headed down to the south side and thats where i got all my action. about 2 miles out from graystone or grayrock or whatever the name of that restaurant is..

woulda liked to have a lake map and get out on some of those midlake humps and whatnot and get really by myself. next time i head up there im gonna have to get a lake map and try some new areas.

We were off one of those humps about a mile and a quarter out of Graystone. Not too many houses on that one. More perch than you could shake a stick at, but they just running smaller than I like for filleting purposes. That's ok, we had a ball and the weather was perfect.

There is a little lake right outside of dent that is dynamite for tulibees if you can hit it at the right time. Tentor lake straight out from the access in 50 feet of water can be some of the best tulibee fishing around. There not quite as big as Little Pines tulibees but we found alot better numbers out there last year. You might want to try deep, last year we caught them at all depths but many were running 10 feet off the bottom, its a rush to reel those fiesty critters up 40 feet. I havent been out there this year but its worth a try. Let me know how ya did. TC

Gogblon,
Where were you fishing on Clitherall on Sunday? North or south end? Any depth to those Tulibees or crappies?

ya i was out sunday morning. i started out on the north end by the landing and then went and tried the south end for a little while. on the north end is where i got the 3 bee's and 3 crappies, the crappies came in suspended at all depths, anywhere from about 8 feet to about 30 feet down. the few tulibees i saw on the flasher came in at about 10-15 feet down. on the south end i didnt mark any fish besides right on the bottom there in about 40 feet of water, and whatever they were they sure didnt like it when i dropped my jig down there- they would take off fast.

Thanks for the info, Gogblon. If I ever get into any tulibee action, I'll give you a holler.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
    • Hoey
      Not to mention that some of these boats had doubles on the biggies, so they could select the heaviest or caught another biggie after tagging one.  Our boat did not get a biggie.  We had over 24 slots for the day, our biggest was 25".

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register.
