Past weekend report

Recommended Posts

Guest

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.

      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.
    • ANYFISH2
      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!
    • monstermoose78
      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.
    • Rick
      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.
