Belated weekend report

Recommended Posts

WaveWacker

Sorry for the delay in the report. Stayed on the home lake (Ida) all weekend. To sum things up fishing for eye's was consistantly slow. It was consistant though. Every time I went out I was able to scrape up 1-3 fish. On average nice sized fish, around the 17-18" range. I did pull one 24" that I CPR'd. Marked a lot of fish suspended out deep (big gals??). Fish came from all over the board. One in 17' one in 33' and all in between. Was using shiners and leeches on live bait rigs. So nothing too consistant yet which means the best is yet to come!

WW, good to hear your report. I was also up over the long weekend on neighboring Miltona. I mainly stuck to the crappies during the day but the evening hours surrendered some nice walleye catches, largest being just shy of 25 in. (released). Interestly, while most boats were venturing out in deeper water I still found the eye's up very shallow after dark. Regarding your question about fish suspended out deep, check out the topic called "cool article, Toad!" on the Brainerd Area Forum, it may help answer the question - if nothing else it's some interesting reading.

I too found the eye's shallow after the fall of night. We trolled in 4-7' of water and scraped some up. No bass chasing this weekend. A buddy of mine is a big bass fisherman and I usually get out after them when he comes up. Too busy catching or swearing at the eye's and muskies. Plus after seeing some of the meat heads running around in bass rigs this weekend I don't know if I want to be tied to the sport for a while. The cabin is on the bayside of a point that has another point relatively close straight across from it. In other words a pinch down spot to get into the bay (Ghotierman I believe you know where I am at) and I witnessed a couple different rigs come flying between the two points. One time coming close to a guy in a small boat that was trolling the bay. If you are one of these guys I don't apologize one bit for my words. Slow the H*LL DOWN in situations like this. Wrecking your 30k, 40K+? boat and more so killing someone is not worth a fish no matter what size. There, now I vented. Only happy thoughts from here on out for in about 8 hrs I am on the road back up there. Any news on where the eye's are hanging out on larger bodies of water (i.e. Ida)? See you on the water

WW

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
