Walleyes, Crappies, Sunnies & Northerns


Recommended Posts

Hope everyone had a good weekend on the lakes..we did and so did the folks here smile.gif

Blackduck was producing limits of walleyes as well as northerns on Friday and Saturday. The morning and afternoon kicked in finally later this week producing around a limit of walleyes for each group of two, and the evening bite producing the best individual limits of walleyes. Northerns have been hitting quite consistantly throughout the day and the evening. The areas producing walleyes the best have been around the different bars around the lake, especially the ones near the island. Drifting and jigging, using fatheads although now the bite is starting to happen using leeches.

Upper Red produced well for us yesterday with 24 slabs in a short time frame early yesterday evening. We tried the very north side of the lake in 4 and 5 feet of water which didn't produce well for us, so then we went just south of Hudec's a bit and the bite was on great grin.gif We were in on the edge of six feet of water, bobber fishing approximately three feet down, with a jig (my trusty dark red and also yellow was used) and small minnows, with times the bite being one right after the other. (Mmmmmm, what a tasty supper!) The crappies had not dropped their eggs yet so we still haven't quite hit "prime time" for spawning yet. Talked to one of the locals who has lived/fished up there all his life and he said that the way it's going we still have about another week~~that's GREAT!

Today we hit Rabideau Lake for panfish and it was great to see that the other lakes have kicked in also now that the water temps have warmed up. We were out with a couple of other folks and the catch was good. A few nice crappies (although not the size of the slabs at Upper Red) and the sunnies...nice! The biggest sunny I reeled in was around 3/4 pound, but those were fun to catch. Fishing near the weedbeds, bobber fishing approximately two feet down, using a bright jig and waxy worms. At times the bite would happen as soon as you would throw it in near the weedbeds. A lot of smaller northerns (approximately 18" to 24") were caught and released also and those were picked up in all areas of the lake.

Some of the other folks here have also had a good time catching sunnies over the weekend with a bluegill or two thrown in the mix, also on Rabideau, as well as North Twin and a couple of the other area lakes...some catching their full limits!

Drake- Did you hear anything from Island?? Sounds like you had an eventful weekend with the fish. We caught a few, but not as much as we would have liked.

Hey there Woodman~I don't think any of our folks hit Island this weekend. The folks we were fishing with specifically wanted Blackduck, Red and then chose Rabideau for the panfish. We have yet to make it out to Island...hoping soon, although now the other half of the "Drake team" is talking Moose and Gilstad to see if the panfish have turned on there also.

Did you get some decent eaters from Island..which day were you out there? How'd you do at Bemidji? Now that your not as busy you think you and your dad will be able to hit Island and some of the other local lakes more?

Hey Ol'Walter, didn't you say you were going to hit Island? How'd you do?
Fivebucks were you able to get some fishing time in or were you working on the cabin?

We may have lost a couple of posts on this thread last night so I'll just add an update of the fishing.

Blackduck produced ten really nice walleyes Sunday evening (between 6:30 and 10), with the largest pushing three pounds. Additional walleyes were also caught and released. The bait of choice again Sunday evening was leeches. Also one of the largest sheephead came in that I have seen and one of the folks here who has been fishing Blackduck for over twenty years said that when the big sheephead start coming in the walleye bite is going to really get going great. Never heard that one before, but he said that's what they've noticed for the last twenty years.

While we were on Rabideau catching sunnies Sunday a family of four hit Upper Red. They were out there for two hours and they reeled in 58 crappies....the bite is getting so hot!

Due to the cooler temps yesterday not much time was spent on Rabideau, but the sunny bite was still really good with some nice size ones coming in. The warmer temps have finally got the panfish bite started and it's producing really well.

Drake,
I thought a post or two got lost last night. I was looking at it and wrote up a reply and hit submit and nothing happened so I hit it again. I then got a message saying you have to wait 30 seconds before re-posting and then the posts where gone. I thought I was losing it. Anyhow, I seem to remember you asking about my fishing time etc. on Island. Our builder, Heim Log Homes out of Kelliher, is close to finishing up the windows, door, and some minor stuff and then we get to do the floors, trim, screen, wood stove etc. That won't leave me much time to fish but luck would have it that my wife likes to sleep in so I get the first few hours out on the lake. We'll be up the 15th - 19th so the fish should be snappin.

I appreciate your and others fishing updates on here, keep up the good work.

Hey Fivebucks~That's what happened to me, I sat here thinking I DID do a post, then I didn't see it! But all is back to normal again!

Sounds like you have a lot of work ahead of you. It's VERY important you balance that work with fishing! Start off in the morning on the lake and hopefully you can get into the night bite too. We haven't made it over to Island yet, but when we know we're going to head over that way we'll let you know...then you'll have to take a break to go fishing!

      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!
