Past weekend report

Recommended Posts

Well, those hogs have seemed to started to fill up on tullibees. Friday night we fished from 9pm until 5am and only caught 4 fish. The biggest being a 28incher and the smallest a 20incher. Saturday night wasnt much better. We did get a few but they were small.Surface water temp was 43 degrees.The wind had us trailering the boat by 10pm. It looks like the next full moon on November 30th might be your last chance for a trophy.

Even if the hogs are full, do you think there may still be a good bite this weekend late afternoon and early evening? From the forecast the water temp may even move back up a bit. I'd be fishing the garrison area.

If the weather is good its always worth a try. Its not over until the fat lady sings and cant put the boat in anymore. Even after ice-up those fish are still there biting. If your headed out during the day look for the deepest edges off Garrison reef. Hit the shoreline after dark.

D-man that's exactly how we did. We fished around Agate Bay on Sat. evening from 5-10 and only got three fish, one small and 2-21". I couldn't believe it was that slow.

Tried the north side on Sat. I was on shallow rocks casting for musky. Other boats looking for walleye's deeper in the day, marking them but no catches. I pulled up in shallower in about 8 ft and had a real nice musky fallow in about five casts. Any ideas about where they will be this weekend?

Bob, Dman, I have had good fishing on the west side, on rocks in 6 to 10 ft. pulling the largest sized floting rapala they make, silver with a red head and yellow back on 120 ft of 10 pound fireline. I actually had the best action ofter sunrise. A week before, when the moon was brighter, we did better at night. Me and a buddy got 15 eyes, the biggest being 29 inches. The best bait was the biggest tail dancer ( they need to make a bigger one) color didn't matter. 100 ft behind the boat, 10 lb fireline.

hope this helps! I am planning to be out there this Saturday smile.gif

Maniac, there have been a few big ones caught on the west side. Two I heard of were 48 and 53 inchers! I tried pulling a super-shad a while but no takers. pulled a jumbo sized floating rap, but only got a bunch of big walleyes (boohoo) wink.gif
I caught a couple of tulibees too, and I thought about rigging one up on a quick-strike rig, but wasn't sure it was legal, hahaha. I may try a big Jake bait this weekend, I think the muskys are looking for a big meal now. even some of the walleyes I caught had big tulibees sticking out of their gullets.

Best Fishes!

Cyber/ most of the big fish we caught had those tulibee tails sticking out as well. What size taildancer where you using? The biggest is a 9. If you were running that 100 feet out on 10 fireline that bait will go down 12 feet. They are making a 5 for next year(great spring bait).

I was using a 9 then, I was fishing 8 to 10 ft,bumping off lots of rocks, so I could have used less line, but I like to keep the lure away from the boat as much as possible on a calm night. did lose some lures to the rocks though.

I really had much better success on the jumbo floating rap though. I started using that last Saturday when I realized they were feeding on the bigger tulibees. I also wanted to use a lure that would tempt a big musky or pike too, but found it better for numbers of big eyes too, plus no snags! grin.gif

Sounds like everything is hitting on big muskie lures huh? I'm definatly headed up Sat , maybe Fri. and thinking I'll have to hit the shallow rocks hard. Has anyone been on east side? I tried Wed. but the fog was to thick and my GPS batteries were dead :-( but did notice green weeds in Isle bay.On the topic of walleyes hitting muskie lures, we had nice 'eyes hitting in 8 ft. over weeds in the middle of the summer fishing for muskies, one day we caught more walleyes in shallow weeds than anything else. This happen to any of you this summer?

I stopped by Thorne Bros today and picked up a cisco pattern Phantom jerkbait. I think both the Big Musky and walleye will not be able to resist it, though I don't think I will get much sport from a walleye on my jerkbait rod LOL!

70 degrees tomorrow! woohooo!

Best fishes!

First, As Cyberfishes partner I will say that he mostly does not lie. Except for maybe the part about how great the fishing is. See the last two times out he has out fished me something like 28 to 14 and he has always gotten the biggest fish. Not that I should complain. I have caught 3 or 4 that were my personal best comming into this year. My biggest now is 27" that was just shy of 8lb's. By the way that 9lber was a fish just shy of 27". It was the most grotesquely fat fish I have ever seen. It puked a half digested tulibe into the net. That belly was amazing it literally looked like it had something slightly smaller than a volleyball in it's belly. I am sure no picture we took will do it justice. We shold have taken a picure of it's underside. Just like a pregnant cow.

      I haven’t seen many posts lately which means I’m not the only one struggling to find fish. I ventured out of Frazer into Big Bay today and fished 20 fow on a shore line pulling a spinner/crawler  at 1 mph and got a limit of nice fish in a half an hour. They hit almost as soon as I got the bait to the bottom. Just me and the lab- - otherwise, we would’ve put a lot more fish in the boat. It was the third place I tried. It’s good advice to fish where you see fish on the sonar.  RLG

      Sounds like a great time, Hoey. Keeping active with old friends is really important...……….as I have advanced well past "middle age", most of my friends I fished/hunted with have either died or quit the outdoors pursuits. Bummer. However, Thursday I head to Morson with one of my remaining partners to spend a few days at his place at Sportsmans Landing, always a good time. That part of LOW is really fun! Endless rock humps to fish, and little traffic. A couple years ago, I got my bud into jigging raps and similar lures. Big fun jig rappin the sand flats in that area. And usually, we catch a few crappies for a great meal. One observation  after many years of fishing LOW north and east of Big Traverse involves the rock humps.....anyone with thoughts on this, please weigh in. In big Traverse, the rock bite peaks in July and slowly peters out. There are still good days, but by late August, you have to run and gun to find fish on the rocks. However, in Sabaskong, Little Traverse and areas north and east of Big Traverse, the rock bite stays very strong. On Whitefish Bay, my best rock fishing was the last couple weeks of August. My thought is it is because of the pressure on  the US side and the lack thereof on the Canada side. Opinions? Good luck.

      I was fishing 18-25 fow.  I cruised several humps that topped out around 17-20 fow and found fish on about 1/2 of them.  I only fished spots I marked good numbers of fish on them.   By horizontal I mean either making long cast and snapping the jigging rap back sharply or trolling 1- 1.2 mph and having enough line out that there would be a little slack before my next snap of the rod at that speed/depth.  You don't feel the hit.  The fish is just there on the next snap that then turns into a hook set.   I've also fished them vertically but many times the more horizontal presentation works better.  At least for me.   I caught fish on both 7&9 sizes.  But the 7s are easier on my arm with repetitive snapping of the rod.  These fish heavy and I've fished them like this in more than 30 feet of water. Metallic perch was the best color for me this weekend followed by rainbow trout or chartreuse.   Even caught several pike and crappies doing this type of fishing.  Moonshine shiver minnows work well too.  They get the nod when there is most on the bottom.  They fish cleaner that the jigging raps.

      when was the most recent time it started normally?   You did start mixing oil in gas when you disconnected the injection system, right?    
    • opsirc
      I have a 1984 40hp evinrude, when to start this year after it has been sitting for 5yrs. It was drawing so much juice that it melted one one the terminals off. The only thing different is I disconnected the oil injection system because it was in constant alarm. Did this after talking to the service dept at a outboard motor dealership. Everything else is the same, when i parked it would turn over with no problem, now hard turning. Anyone have idea i am out of them.   Thanks

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of a zebra mussel in East Silent Lake in Otter Tail County.  A property owner contacted the DNR after finding a one-half inch zebra mussel attached to a native mussel near a dock in about two feet of water. DNR staff conducted follow-up searches of more than 1,500 objects in East Silent Lake and found no additional zebra mussels. The lake will be added to the infested waters list, because the DNR verified the initial report. The lake will be monitored for additional zebra mussels. “It’s helpful that lake users are being vigilant and are contacting us when they suspect they’ve found a zebra mussel,” DNR invasive species specialist Mark Ranweiler said. “We ask people to keep the specimen and send us a photo, to assist with identification and confirmation.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Zebra mussels can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species. More information is available at mndnr.gov/ais.

      Hey Borch, What do you mean by horizontal presentation for jigging raps?  How deep were the mid lake humps you were fishing?  I've been experimenting with jigging raps this year and have caught some on them, but not a lot.  One final question, I've been using size 7.  What were you using?  THANKS.
    • Borch
      The eyes I got from 11 - 11:45 am.  The gills and crappies from 2:30 - 4:30 pm.  We did a picnic lunch and a boat tour of the lake as it was Wanda's first time on Osakis.   The panfish bite was very good.   Enjoyed our time as well.   Was hoping to see you before I went to get Wanda and left active fish.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of zebra mussels in Eagle Lake in Kandiyohi County.  A property owner contacted the DNR after finding a one-half inch zebra mussel on the north side of Eagle Lake. DNR staff conducted a two-hour snorkel search and found one additional zebra mussel on a settlement plate attached to a dock. The lake will be monitored for additional zebra mussels. “It’s helpful when lake users contact the DNR if they think they’ve found a zebra mussel or any other invasive species,” said DNR invasive species specialist Eric Katzenmeyer. “We ask people to keep the specimen and send us a photo, to assist with identification and confirmation.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash.
