Anybody doing any good at Lac Que Parle?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody been to LQP and did any good? I have tried to get over there but had to finish my fall chores around the house. Let me know if anything is going on. Fishhead, is the dam by Granite Falls the one east of the old NSP plant?
Thanks, Ode

Yes that is the one,along CR 40.I did not walk down to take a good look at it,but it looked good from the road.Any dam this time of year I would think would be pretty good.Have you fished it and did you do any good?
I did fish LQP last weekend,lots of little ones still.I did not have to play bumper boats though.at noon there were only2 boats out there.I think Dark 30 and I may head out there again this weekend.At least there is some action unlike near the cities right now.

I have heard things haven't got hot over at LQP yet. Sometimes it is quite late in the year before that happens. Yes I have fished that stretch of river by Granite. There used to be a resort down there called Pete's Point. There may be fishing down there yet, but I haven't been there in many years. I grew up in Sacred Heart, east of Granite. I hope to get up to LQP again. I have been fixing deer stands lately. The flood really raised hell with them. Have a great day!!!!!

Saw a lot of boats today at the Milan bridge while Dark and I were checking out the entire LQP area.We didn't bother to stop and see if they were getting any decent fish.Talked to a guy yesterday at the Marsh Lake dam who said they were still small.I think the rest of the area is a little slow.Got some fish at Marsh lake dam on friday,16 to 19" with a 24" in the mix.

Fishhead,

Hi Ode
Yes we were fishing from shore.We thought about taking the boat up there but I thought if there were a few people there the daredevils would come out and start "accidentally" hitting the boat.I fished both sides over the two days that I went out there and noticed that if you want larger fish try the North east side(at the park)if you want more fish but eater size fish the other side.There were maybee a half dozen to a dozen people there on both sides.but it seems they come and go so if you stick it out a while you can get a decent spot.Also most fish were coming from the channels along both sides where the cemented in rocks end and along the spillway edge.All my fish came from my old faithful"yellow/orange jig with a 4"power grub and no bait",but I didn't do any better or worse than any one else using jigs.
If you head over there good luck and let us know how you do.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏
