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.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.  
    • eyeguy 54
      yep, lotta lead on the sippi from this guy. LOL  sometimes I do a simple drop shot setup. tie a #4 hook on and leave about a foot or less of line. then just pinch the split shot on bottom and jig away. didnt have to tie on so many hooks.  
    • MinnowBuckets
      Nice report! Glad to see there are others still getting out on the river too. I need to get simpler in my presentation and use the fathead/split shot technique more often. I can’t afford to lose 3 swimbaits or rapalas each time out. 😭
    • eyeguy 54
      dont talk yourself out of it. might hit a couple spots again this coming week for fun. Over the years I have had off and on luck till thanksgiving time. Couple pics from this fall.  I just like a fathead on 1/8 oz jig or a plain hook with a split shot. Quite the battle when the 28 inch northern tried to eat the bass. It got stuck on the jig so reeled them both in. Ran into the current two times. Fight city. LOL 
    • MinnowBuckets
      Yeah, I’ve thought of ice fishing below some of the dams in the area, but I always end up talking myself out of it. 
    • Stick in Mud
      I've been doing OK, too.  I dunno how long the bite last. In the old days when we had real, manly winters, we'd whack 'em through the ice down below the Sartell dam, so I imagine they'll keep biting as long as we're willing to tough it out. 
    • MinnowBuckets
      Thanks guys! I wonder how much longer the bite will last with the cold temps this fall. The water is already extremely cold for this time of year. Anyone else have any reports?
    • eyeguy 54
      nice job!  gotta love the fall bite on the sippi.

      Awesome catch MinnowBuckets!!😎

      So Gimruis has a problem with meat hunters on the lake.  Then he should be promoting the use of cameras instead of guns when out hunting birds or animals.  If you want to fish for sport and look down on those that fish for food then go get a hand held fishing game and sit on the shore.  Believing something is the truth doesn't mean that it is.  You can say the lake isn't mismanaged all you want and that the surveys work because the people using them have advanced degrees.  I work for people in construction that have degrees but don't know crap about what actually happens on a construction site.  The worst thing to happen to electricians is schools putting out project management courses.  Now instead of people with practical knowledge running jobs we have people schooled in theory with big ideas and egos to match.  You Gimruis seem to be the same.  Saying that people shouldn't fish for food and saying they are the problem is insanity.  You have no place in this conversation.
