Off To See The Wizard.....


Recommended Posts

With the winds we had in our little corner of the world today, it had you thinking you should be looking for Auntie Em and Toto! Was it like this for you folks in other areas today?

We only had a couple of fishermen that hit one of the smaller lakes in the area today, but we decided to go to a couple of area casinos. But we did pass Leech Lake on the way to one casino and saw a few folks fishing the weedbeds along the shoreline. We also passed Cass Lake and saw the trucks and empty trailers in the parking lot, but didn't see the boats on the lake, so they must've ventured out a ways.

So did anyone else experience the winds today in your neck of the woods and did anyone venture out?

The public access isn't ready yet~Everything is done at the access except paving and striping. They were hoping the weather would hold so that work could get done by Monday, and the access would be open Monday, but with the rain that we had on Friday I would imagine that put it behind schedule a day or two. Although I haven't driven to the lake today. A couple of the resorts on the southside of the lake are offering folks to launch, but heard that Fontenelle's is pretty steep.

If you do head out, let us know how you do. Have some folks who have been fishing Blackduck the last week and when asked how the fishing has been they said they couldn't complain.....

Fished Blackduck this afternoon and didn't even get a bite??? Went to our lucky spot that produced some walleyes this summer and not a fish, graphed lots, but couldn't talk them into bitting. Tried singing to them, and I think that scared them away or something????

OWell, it felt good to spend time with the wife before I have to head back up to Ponemah and teach!!!

Happy Fishing

Yep - thought the house was going to rip apart!! Lost a big birch that fell about 2 foot away from our pontoon that I have pulled in the driveway! Actually better it wasn't in thw water, or the dock would have been ripped apart with the boat tied to it.

Think I am heading up to Blackduck this afternoon - is the launch done yet? If not I will have to make other plans.

Well - we headed to North Twin instead yesterday. I think it must be the weather, but we didn't get a keepable fish in the 3 hrs out there. Fished shallow and deep and everything inbetween. What are you folks doing to get those gills??

Don't get me wrong we caught plenty of smaller gills and small bass, but nothing for the pan.

Oh well, it was better than doing yard work!

Hey Clueless, sorry to hear you weren't able to get the keepers. Talked to some folks here who've been doing good on Gills the last few days and they are fishing along the weedlines with leeches. Some of the gills being the little guys being thrown back, but their "big brothers" came back with them. (Now today and yesterday it was at Rabideau.)

It seemed fishing was slower yesterday after that rain on Friday and heavy winds on Saturday~really stirred things up. (Wasn't just you Woodman!) Upper Red proved really slow for the northerns today, hopefully with things calming back down fishing will kick in.

Woodman~One of the locals who's been fishing the Duck a lot the last week said today the walleye bite was going good in the 10 to 12 foot depth and fishing along the shoreline. Were you in shallow depths or out by the bars where the fishing had been so good?

Drake- We fished our lucky 10'bar and nothing. There were a couple of boats that were trolling along moose point by us, but never seen them land a fish either. I believe it is the weather and the change in water temp, but that is just my thought!!

Woodman

PS let us know when the access is finished.

      You could do Isanti to St. Francis also.  About mid way is Anderson Park that has a small sandy access.  Anderson Park to St. Francis had fewer but some bigger fish while Isanti to Anderson Park had better numbers and not as many big fish.   All upstream from Isanti to the access on Hwy 95 can be hit or miss but if you hit it, it can be good.   Up to 16’s is fairly common bit there are enough 16-20’s to not be shocked if you get one or more.   I’d never admit to this while I lived there. 😉

      Some pressure but nothing like lake fishing

      Hey thanks guys, I appreciate your input. It sounds like this float might be best to put off a year when the water is up a little higher. I'll check the gage next summer and see how it looks. I was hoping to get into some 18 to 20" fish (aren't we all), so maybe they will have moved back in there by then.   Does the stretch south of St. Francis get very much pressure on it? I'll have to give it a look.

      Little more narrow up there, if I were to do it, I'd float St Francis to Andover. Shallow yes but it's a good stretch to fish

      I fished it further south near Milaca/Princeton a couple times in late July.  It was OK then but dropping.  The second time we definitely bumped more rocks and grounded out in a couple riffles.  I use a 10 foot jon boat that can float through a couple inches of water.  We caught 15-20 smallmouth both times, but nothing over 16 inches.  I think the drought last year sent the bigger fish out of there.  It may take a few years to recover.   You can check the flow on the DNR website.  There is a live gauge right in Onamia.  Anything below 11 feet is too low for me.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/csg/site.html?id=21018002

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Lol he broke a muskie drought that had started in 2006.  16 years without a legal muskie!

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.
    • Caleb9
      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.
    • Caleb9
      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay
