A Little Help!!

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am taking my wife up for the evening bite tonight. She has never been on the lake and I have only been on it 4 or 5 times. We will be driving up 169. If anyone has any good spots and techniques for the southwest side I would love some help. Help a guy out, if my with has fun and catches a few it will be well worth it. Thank you for any help.

Ranger1,

I fished off of Sherman's point last weekend and had success in 22' of water on the north side of the point. That depth puts you on the break from 19' into 25'. Lighted slip bobber, red hood, leech. You might want to try switching to crawlers if a bug hatch starts. Try switching hook colors. Don't think that what worked yesterday will work today, although it often does.

I have also heard that Indian Point is a good place to start. There has been good success out of Garrison and Wealthwood. Go through all the threads in this forum and many of your questions will be answered.

Don't get married to a depth or a spot. We moved four times within the first hour of fishing last Saturday night until we started getting fish. We fished anywhere from 25' up to 14' and found the fish concentrating at 22'. That could change at any point, on any day.

I'm sure others have some info to share.

I fish on the SW corner 99% of the time. If you wanna launch there, you can try Cove bay public access of Weekends Bar & Grill. If you plan on slip bobbering, there is a great rock by in and around the bouys near the Cove Bay channel. You can't miss it, there are 5 or 6 sets of channel markers coming out of the bay, but you can anchor and slip boober the rocks to the east of the channel toward the point. If you wanna drift, I saw a bunch of boats do great drift from the middle of the bay out toward the channel.

If you stop in at Weekends tell them Chris Graber sent ya, Keith will do all he can to take care of ya!

D-man, I would love to, but I don't have anyone to fish with that has a boat. All my fishing buddies with boats are busy this weekend.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!
