Sunday's Launch

Recommended Posts

eye

I wasn't able to make it up to Pikes' Point Resort in time for Sunday nights launch, I had a little truck trouble. Just wondering how everyone did. I really hated to miss this, I think people should get together like this more often. Thanks D-Man for the opportunity!!

We pounded the fish. Its was a great time. We had times when 4-5 people had fish on at once. We were still netting fish when we pulled anchor to head in. Perfect nite, no wind and the few bugs we had pretty much stuck to the lights. We will plan another one in Sept. Hope you can make it then. P.S FM.com member Fishfearme won the first fish money pot.

Hey D-man,
Thanks for the report. I don't suppose you could let me know where you guys were? I'm not looking for acuall GPS coordinates, but a general location and depth would be really appreciated. Thanks again!!

Good Luck,
Rusty

D-man,

Why is it that spots like this hold so much fish, ecspecially at night. I always thought at night go shallow and find rocks? As you may recall a previous post I mentioned that we had 65 fish on a launch at night. We also were in a"no-mans" on the NW end? I took the gps cooridnates and placed on my map and was dumbfounded that we were a long way from any structure. I don't mind fishing in these areas it just seems to go against all logic? Am I way off base?

Bug and Clam beds inhabit in those areas attracting all kinds of forage. No mans lands spots have been fished for many years. They can be some of the hottest action on the lake and turn ice cold the next.

We made it up for the launch, and had a lot of fun. Great group of people.

Mike and D-man gave us some good info. We put it to use yesterday and today, and caught quite a few. The biggest being a 26 1/4.


D-man we dropped the boat and headed into the y club, but we must of scared em when we pulled up cause they were closed.

For the record I can't recall any bottle bass being slammed. wink.gif

We were out sunday and fished spirit island and did okay, nice fish but no slots.

We also marked a ton of fish in a "no mans land" between spirit island and rocky reef in 30-33ft. We could not get them to bite however. What did you guys catch them on at the launch?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
