Wheres All The Pout!

Recommended Posts

Guest

Was fishing all weekend from Thursday eve through Saturday eve looking for a few pout for a first ever pout boil and broil! Between 15 of us that were fishing we only got 3 keeper size pout and 3 little tiny ones.Now I know some would think we are nuts but we have the walleyes down but we wanted to try something different Sunday evening after the Packer game?

Ok, what does a guy use to catch Pout? I can say I have never actually fished for them. But, when we had this discussion a couple weeks back no one could tell me a bait that really works good for pout. Since you actually went and fished for them I would be interested in hearing what you use.ScottS

Big ol juicy fat head on a gem eye jig, under a slip bobber. Bobber fishing is the only way to go. Try fishing out by liberty island late into the night.

BigPointer53, try fishing the southeast corner of the lake near Mac's Twin Bay. I was there two weekends ago and caught more pout than I wanted to catch. 18 feet of water. Use a flutter spoon tipped with a fathead. I had a rattle reels set up in the house and they went off all night long. Average pout weighed 4 pounds with two that pushed 7 pounds. Best time was 2am. Good Fishing, Matt.

Many of the lake trout lakes I've fished have pout in them and often, when it gets dark i'll stay out a little longer and try for them. One thing I have found to work is using large laketrout jigs with a smashed fathead or 2 and pound the bottom with it. My favorite is a 3/4 oz. Bucktail jig by Northland. I mash 2 fatheads in my hand and put bouth of them on. Then I'll drop it down and pound the bottom of the lake with it. I've tried it on Mille Lacs and it works well there too. Of course cut bait laying on the bottom works well too.

I don't really know why you want to catch pout, but if you do chum the holes with all of your dead minnows. Then put on something big that glows and you'll have all the pooters that you want!!

      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!😓

      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.
