Eden Lake

Recommended Posts

Guest

I went over to Eden today, and gave it my best for a couple of hours. The bite was light, slow and just plain tough.The crappies were laying on the bottom in 25 feet, but you really had to finesse them to get bit.Minnows seemed to get ignored, but nailed a couple decent ones on eurolarvae.Is the dusk bite a better time to go after them, or is it just a matter of it being the mid-winter slump time? Seems slow everywhere the last couple of days.

BigGuage- You are noticing what most have been noticing lately, It is tought to get those fish to bite. I have been having fair success yet, but it has taken some work. Those crappies you mention laying on the bottom are doing that indeed. The only way I can get those to bite is to get them to come up off the bottom. I have also been having better success later in the night. After dark, the fish are coming through suspended, and unlike summer, they are more willing to bite. I have been focusing on these suspended fish after dark. One, because they are a lot more willing to bite and two, because they are much nicer than the ones laying on the bottom. Pretty soon this full moon will be gone and we will have some dark nights, that is a good thing in my book.ScottS

BigGauge- If you are fishing to the right of the access where the big group of houses are, here is something to try. Auger some holes outside of the pack and look for active fish. Most of the fish in the group have been fished. I have found that alot of these fish that you see on your locator already have been caught and released. This system has worked for me all year on the Horseshoe-chain. Fish the fish you see rise off the bottom also try maggots before dark.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
