Reports were good last night. Fish the shoreline rocks or garrison reef with crankbaits. Longline with floating rapalas.

D-Man,
Thinking of hitting the lake for the first time on friday, coming from duluth area. Would like to spend the day learning an area/plotting GPS points so I can catch the first part of the night bite. Would you recommend going out of Malmo or down by Mac's for a first-timer? Do not want to bite off more than I can chew for 1 day. Looks like the wind should die down by friday anyway (predicted 30-40 tomorrow day)
Thanks for any tips you can pass on.

xplorer/ The sand in Malmo has been good the past few nights from what my partner has said. The sand can also put out a great day bite on leeches if you can still find some. But if you get a strong west wind tommorow like they are saying you might do very well out of Macs fishing the shoreline rocks and humps like Flamingo. Without actually fishing those area's myself in awhile, I would suggest stopping at fisher's and talking to those guy's to see what has been going. Then head south and stop in at Mac's and get some info. If it were me i guess i would hit that east shoreline out of Mac's if we get that wind tomorow. I would also call Mac's tomorow and ask if the wind is blowing in or another resort that is on that east shoreline. Start with cranks working the 8-10 depths at sundown. As the night goes on have a few rods ready with floating raps and get into the 4-6 foot shorline area with an electric if you have one,let out lots of line. Last weekend we caught fish a stones throw from shore, so dont be shy to get close. The bite does get better the later it gets this time of year so dont get discouraged right away. Another tip,there is a feeder creek(cedar creek) next to the cedar creek public access that puts out some monsters trolling in front of the mouth if the main lake is too windy fri night. Let me know how you do or where you ended up. iam headed back up Fri as well. Good Luck to ya

I'm hoping to pull some crankbaits in the Garrison area on Fri or Sat evening. Anyone have some results or suggestions for location, lures, time period, depth, etc?
Thanks.

D-man,
Thanks for the quick reply. Watching the weather today, winds only around 15 sw and only predicting 5-10 for tomorrow. Really hoping to be able to get off work tomorrow. I've got my last 1/4 lb of leeches left that need to be abused so I may try to hit the sand for the morning and then pull and head down towards cedar creek landing and spend the afternoon trolling and marking gps runs for after dark. Will try running a planer board up shallow with raps and the elecric. Have you ever tried trolling with lil' rippers up shallow? I used them on the St Louis river this spring with good success over 4-5' gravel bars, might be too small a bait for this time of year tho.

Gotta go, I think I'm starting to feel kinda sick, ya that its, not well at all!!
Will let you know how i do if I get to go.
Thanks for the help and good luck out there this weekend.

If you're going by Cedar don't forget to get on Big Point in 8'-10' of water and troll shad raps, #11 raps(for 8') or #18 raps (for 10'). 3 mile reef and The reef that runs north off Hennepin are prime for big pigs as well. I troll #11 raps on the edges of the 3' to 6' reef and #18 raps in the 10' rocks off the reef on the west side of it when the reef trollers get too thick.

You're on the edge of prime time for full moon fishing the above spots, which in my calculations starts to end on the 3rd.

Let us know how it goes.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
