I need some last minute stuff.

Personally, I'm going with a 1/8 oz. jighead with a emrald shiner on my jigging rod. A 6 ft snelled LBR with either a leech or a big lake shiner on my LBR rod. My standard blue-chrome suspending shad rap on the trusty crankbait rod. Also, I'm gonna be going with some soft plastics and medium sized husky jerks for throwing up on smaller shallow shelves after dark on my other rods. I might throw a 1/16 oz. with a fathead on a ultralight, if things ghet really tough. It might be hard to do though, with the winds where supposed to have.

I think most fish will be shallow and stay shallow all weekend. It's gonna, be cloudy, windy and all around crappy. Low light. I love that kind of weather. I'll be 10 ft or less all weekend. Hopefully, the fish agree with me. I don't think OT is on my list of lakes though. I don't feel like fighting that lake with the wind we're gonna have.

I'm a little worried about the water temp.. It was only in the high 40's or low 50's last weekend, and I don't think this weather has really warmed it up. It might of came down a bit even.

Anyone got any last minute tips?

Good Luck. I'm outta here, Eden Prairie, about 9 pm tonight. It's gonna be good to catch some real fish. Finally!

There's a big rock point on Clitherall, if you're used to bobber fishing it's a good place to do something you're comfortable with. Use a slip bobber on the deep edge of that thing. Set it kid of deep 8 ft or so, and let it flow out. Or, live bait rigs and jigs will do just fine, and probably better. But, who knows? You just gotta try stuff, and see what happens.

Never fished Anna, but I love Clitherall. I fished it three time last year, mainly for bass, but we did very well on everything. I gotta 28 1/2 in walleye of that rock point last year. So , I know big fish live there.

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.
