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.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
