Fish are starting...

I was up at Hillman's today and went out with Shorty on the lake. We drove a minivan out 5.4 miles, no problem. There is 12-14" inches in the road, and nearby. But,any rough ice may have as little as 3"inches,so all is not well yet.BE CAREFUL!Two nights ago they had two guys go out about 4 miles and get 22 crappies.There were some guys out there today that had gotten a couple nice crappies and a nice northern during the day today. So things are starting to get going.We need a few more cold nights.

Hey Matt those new hooks I got from you didn't work that good. I sat there for an hour without a bite. But maybe tomorrow I'll move the house out on the lake and try them in water. grin.gif
Really your Glo Spoon is one of my favorite hooks, I love it and I think your Glow Tubes will a winner also.

Fished out of Rogers about a mile and a half out and caught 0 crappies. We did catch many many walleyes though. Most are close to 20 inches too. We never went more than a half hour without a walleye. Wish we could have caught a crappie though. Did catch one 7lb northern and lost something huge on another tipup, assuming it was a northern, we never actually saw it. Overall it was very fun. Can't wait for the walleyes to be legal up there!! On another note, we didn't catch many perch. Last year we would catch hundreds of perch all day long. Yesterday we only caught maybe 10 perch max. Kind of strange.

The fishing picked up a little over the weekend, a few reports of 20 or so crappies by a couple groups. Bill T. was out on Saturday and caught 5 crappies between 5 and 6PM and before that he caught around 40 walleyes or so with the biggest being around six pounds. It looks like the future is getting a little brighter. 3 reports of 40+ inch northerns caught on Sunday. it looks like the fishing is picking up and with a little cold weather we should be driving all trucks by the weekend.

Yes, I am the Phelps with the lures. We are the creators of the Phelps Floater and the first Stand Up Jig,along with many other new products. Chris whom? I will have many leeches in the spring. Clue me in. All I need is a clue. Although, I will only have Supers.

Happy Holidays To All!

Those stand up jigs of yours are great. I caught some nice bass on them this summer tossing them in the weed pockets tipped with shiners. Great weedless lures!!

Are you clueless in your last post? (sorry - I couldn't resist)

All kidding aside, the Phelps are a class act!! If you haven't tried their tackle, pick some up. And when buying leeches in the Bemidji area ask if they are Phelps, they have the biggest and best!! A little background on the leech story, Matt was going to get me a pound of leeches just before a big tournament. Things got busy with checking traps , delivering tackle and going to captains meeting and they were forgotten. He made arrangements with another fisherman to ensure I had bait. The Phelps will take care of you!!!

Now that I have some time I was looking at coming up in the next couple weeks. Is it a good time to come or is it a good idea to wait until later in the year. Would also love to fish the northerns I hear about. Have never been to URL. Anybody have any advice?

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒
    • osok
      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.
    • Borch
      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
