Hows the bite?

Recommended Posts

CrookedHook

I have heard the bite is a bit slower up there this year due to the walleye population coming back. Is this true. I ma staying near Winnie for a few days and have been thinking about making a run to URL. This rumor has been spread by a guy I know down here. Any truth?

Two of us were there from monday afternoon until wednesday morning. Stayed on the ice the whole time other than a quick trip into the westwind tuesday night. We caught 11 crappies, smallest one 11 inches, biggest 13.5, easily our limit of walleyes, one 37 inch northern and a few pesky perch that were just a tad too small. Hope this helps.

Gun, is it true that you are not able to harvest walleye from URL. Understand that there is a moritorium on walleye. Can you tell I am from Wisconsin. Don't have the rules for MN yet. Qusetion is can you take walleye from URL? Sorry to be so inquisitive but if I am going to spend the day I would like to make the most of it.
Thanks

All walleyes caught on Red must be immediately released. No exceptions. They are still fun to catch.

I knew I should have put in the disclaimer that I am sure we caught our limit of walleyes but we kept NONE! It was very hard letting all those beautiful fish go back down the holes. The coloring on those fish was very pretty. I am excited to be able to one day take a few of them home and cook them up.

      About the Rusties... I thought I posted this but it must have gone away with the server glitch.  Rusties have made it through oak narrows and are marching west. To the best of my knowledge they haven't gotten as far as Wakemup so Norwegian and HeadOlakes are still free of them.  When they get to us, I have my crab boil, trap, and old bay ready.  I figured trapping them east and importing them west might get me in trouble.   I can wait.

      Me too, going up for the week of July 4th for cabin projects and fishing and maybe some trail riding on the SxS. Oh, maybe some R&R and Coors Light too.

      I also have a ICIH, with a loud ac unit, would like to see a thermostat for it but most of time time I have house plugged into 120 volt outlet.

      Wow - 7 days of posts gone.  Seems like more than that.  Oh-well.  My next trip is a week and a half away.

      Per Rick on HSO they switched to a new server. Had a glitch in the database that lost a couple days of posts on HSO and FM

      Good luck fishing. It's a great way to spend retirement!

      Does anyone know where the more recent posts have gone? There were some posts from earlier in the week. BTW, not seeing any more floating dead minnows.....

      I had my last official guide trip Monday and Tuesday and we fished for Smallmouth bass. It was one of my regulars that I have fished with for over 10 years. George and I have caught 100's of Smallies over the years and this year was no different. We boated around 65 bass in two days in less than perfect conditions. Most were on topwater baits of one kind or another and the rest were taken on crank baits. I wasn't able to fish to much so George caught most of the fish. I know I will miss guiding and the friends I have made over the years. I guess I'll just have to fish more to get over all the time spent guiding.   Have a great season everybody.
