Clearwater lake report & annandale are lakes


Recommended Posts

Man, the bass fishin' has been hot in the Annandale area. Last night I fished Clearwater from 7:00PM until 9:30PM and the bass were hitting hard! I moved around alot and caught fish at every spot but one. At the last spot, I managed to catch three notherns, all over 5 pounds and one that was 35" long. I would have stayed on the lake longer, but the bugs nearly carried me off.

The fish were all in less than 5 feet of water and in the thickest nastiest weeds I could find. Plugs and spinnerbaits were the lures of choice, fished fast. This pattern has worked in the last week on other area lakes such as: cedar, pleasant and sylvia.
Good luck!

OK I maybe I am just terrible, but we couldn't find a bass today for the life of us! We fished from 9am-3pm when the storms looked bad enough to scare us off.

What and where should a guy begin for bass, and also walleyes. Are the walleyes going to be really tough during peak day light hours? Should we concentrate on morning and night time?

Also the lake appears to be really tough for trolling spinner rigs...any suggestions. The depth was up and down so fast, I couldn't do much of anything to keep my rig in the strike zone and out of the weeds.

Any help would be great as I plan on heading out there again soon to try my luck again.

Clayton,
I agree (100%) about taking the time to learn a lake. Also, you can utilize successful methods of searching for fish on one lake and apply it to another lake. The key to any lake is to keep moving and changing presentations until you contact fish. Nav.

If you'll take a good hard look at a chart of the lower lake (east half of Clearwater) you'll see that a trolling run of almost two miles is easily undertaken. Naturally you will need a few tries if you're going to acquire the knack of staying in 15+ feet of water, but it's worth the effort.

Upper lake (west half) trolling is tougher, but still possible. The key is working with a good map and remembering the "surprises" you find that will be found on no map. No doubt about it, Clearwater is tough structure. However, that's what makes it both a challenge and a lot of fun.

As for bass, you'll find them off deep weedlines all over the upper lake. The north shoreline (weedline) is excellent, from Waterfront Restaurant all the way across to east shore south of Maple Hill.

Between Bungalow Island and the Maple Hill section, there's a passage way through the weeds that is used for boat traffic. On both sides of that passage there are small pockets of deeper water just off emergent weeds. They hold tons of panfish and lots of nice bass. Fish the edges.

No one will ever tell you Clearwater is "easy." However, it is a great fishing lake for anyone who takes a little time to learn some its incredible structure.

      Fished solo Sunday and Monday afternoon.  Began by targeting smallies, but couldn’t buy a fish which was odd because the conditions were juicy - calm, cool, cloudy, drizzly.   Frustrating to say the least!    Figured if I was gonna get skunked, then it might as well be swinging for the fence.  Switched to Muskies at 7:30 and got lucky as heck, putting three in the boat over the next two hours, including a porker 48”er.  Felt very content the rest of the evening.    Got back out on the water Monday afternoon under post-frontal high skies and was fortunate to trick this lonely blonde an hour into the day.  Missed another a short time later and had some follows before pulling the plug to head home.  Didn’t want to leave that’s for sure!  All East end fish caught casting btw and all released unharmed.   Water temp was 71.

      I recently found an interesting thomas king essay topic on this site. God, I'm so glad that now I shouldn't waste time surfing the web. By the way, the rest of the topics from the list were also very interesting.

      The main keywords of this essay “can virtue be taught essay”. Plato presents Socrates’ views on the question of virtue and knowledge. It can be taught in many dialogues, including Meno. Socrates offers many arguments regarding virtue in this dialogue. These arguments cover how virtue is defined, and whether people can attain it. He discusses how virtue can be achieved, including whether one is born virtuous and whether it can be taught. This essay will address the question of whether virtue is possible to teach. Plato answered that virtue can't be taught. This essay will argue that Plato could have asked the questions differently and given him a different response. Particularly, I argue that Plato could have asked whether virtue can be learned rather than asking whether virtue is taught.   Meno asks Socrates whether virtue is possible to teach. The argument is then shifted to another question: what is knowledge? Meno then proposed an interesting paradox. One cannot find anything new. Either one already knows the answer, in which case it is unnecessary to search for it, or one doesn't know it and can't recognize it once it is found (Plato 1997: 80d-e. To put it another way, if one doesn't know what virtue (arete) is, he cannot search for it. Because he will not be able to recognize it when he finds it. Socrates proposes a solution to this problem, which is based upon the Pythagorean view on the immortal soul. The idea that the soul can reincarnate and be destroyed after death of the body is an example of this. It is clear that one cannot acquire new knowledge, but it is also obvious that we are constantly learning new things. Therefore, learning must be a matter recollection of past lives experiences and knowledge. Also, remembering is more important than teaching.   He demonstrated the Meno with a young boy from slavery who didn't seem to have any geometry knowledge. He was able to prove that the boy knew certain mathematical theorems by asking him questions.   Meno again asks his original question. He wants to know if virtue can be taught or if one is born with virtue. Socrates agrees to continue, but says they need to find common ground because neither one of them can define virtue at this moment. Meno agrees that virtue cannot be taught if it is not knowledge. If it is knowledge, it can be taught. Meno points out that it is only possible to teach something if you know what it is. It is unlikely that someone who doesn't know how to drive a car can teach another. Meno and Socrates agree that no one knows what "virtue" means and can therefore not be taught.   Socrates claims that virtue can be taught if we are able to learn from those who teach it (Plato 1997: 96c). Socrates asserts that there are teachers who can teach horsemanship, medicine, and other skills. These teachers are recognized by everyone as legitimate, but people disagree on whether they actually teach virtue. Thucydides was the father of two sons. Neither of them were considered to be virtuous. It is claimed that Thucydides taught his children many disciplines. However, it seems that he couldn't find a teacher who could teach virtue, even though he had teachers for other areas of life that he valued. Even though he was virtuous, he could not even teach it. Virtue is not a form knowledge. To make something knowledge, one must be able teach it to others. Socrates concluded that virtue cannot and should not be taught, and that there are no methods or means by which one can acquire virtue. Refer to: Virtue is simply "shown that it will come to us whenever it comes" (reference).   Plato might have received a different answer if he had asked the questions differently, according to my opinion. Plato could have asked whether virtue could learn, rather than asking whether virtue can ever be taught. To put it another way, asking if one can be taught something implies that the relationship between a student or teacher is involved. However, asking if something can be learnt means that the student (or someone with similar life experiences) is asking if a teacher has taught you geometry. To ask whether I learned geometry, it is to simply ask whether it was taught to me by a teacher or if I learned it myself from a book or some other source.   There are many ways to learn. To learn something one doesn't need a teacher. Learning can be done by studying virtue-filled people, even though they may not know it. A man might be learning virtue and his "teachers" could be virtuous even though they may not be living. Experience is another form of learning. Experience can be a great way to learn virtue. This would mean that the "teacher" is a combination of life experiences and reflective nature. Another form of learning exists. Even if he can't explain how he learned it or what he knows, a man can still learn. After someone has experienced a certain problem in their life, he may be able to detect that his relative is also experiencing the same issue. He can recognize it but cannot explain how. Another example is the musician or painter who has learned their craft and can perform well but cannot explain what it was.   The question of whether virtue can or cannot be taught is therefore a different and more narrow one than the question of whether virtue can actually be learned. Plato was right when he said that virtue can't be taught. It is likely that many people know of or have heard of people who can recite the "rules of virtue" but cannot put them into practice. This is a clear indication that virtue cannot be taught. As I mentioned, being virtuous is similar to being able to play a musical instrument, which is instinctual. It could be argued, for instance, that the ability to recognize when to help a friend, or when to give it to him, is something we instinctually know.   This means that, although virtue cannot be taught, it is possible to learn virtue. Plato suggested that virtue is inherent. This is true to a certain extent. Some people have an extraordinary capacity for virtues such as compassion, empathy, and the like. Since they were born. Others, however, seem to have a lack of moral consciousness. This seems to be a problem because virtue cannot exist without it. This does not mean that virtue cannot be learned, but that the foundation is inborn.   The same way we understand that it is possible to preach virtue but not practice it, so too can the reverse. People can improve their understanding of virtue and may find that they are more virtuous through reflective practice. As they get older, their perceptions of what it means to act in a virtuous manner change. Plato might have received a more positive answer if he had asked different questions (e.g., if he had asked if virtue could be learned instead of if virtue could be taught).

      Red, the moose was near birch island. As far as the lead bite goes....I had heard it was lights out a week ago. No doubt from what I've seen that before 9am you can get into a good bite. For me it's been poor after that. I'd be real curious if others are finding that as well. I have tried deeper areas as well and they weren't good after 9am for me either.

      Good thing DNR is going mostly bucks only in the north....   Apparently all those deer I see along the road aren't enough

      That is great to see! Between Birch Point or Birch Island and Pine? Great to see wherever! Last one I saw was in Quetico umpteen years ago.   I’ve been wondering about lead core. I’m starting to find fish with lindy rigs (although I’ve started to use tungsten worm sinkers) or spinners with crawlers in 18-20’ near steep rocky shore.    Your wildlife shot reminded me of one I took about a month ago along 77. Thought I’d share it. not as cool as a moose, though!
