Recommended Posts

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!!

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?

      This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      Geese are beginning to flock as I seen a number flying over the past couple days.

      Our last trip last year required driving through a snow storm! But that time of year is special!

      Will fish around Paynesville, Cass Lake and maybe Osakis.  I generally fish right up to freeze up/firearms deer season in the boat.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge

      I am spending Labor Day week on Kabetogama with my wife. Never been to Kab before so I am looking forward to hopefully figuring out a new lake with good multi-species potential. Any tips from anybody would be appreciated. After that it will be the anticipation of late October and Rainy River! That is probably my favorite trip of the year.

      A project to improve long-term water quality and wildlife habitat on Pelican Lake in Wright County may cause some short-term inconvenience for waterfowl hunters this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  The public water access managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the west side of Pelican Lake will not be usable for boats larger than a canoe or kayak, due to lower water levels created by a drawdown of the lake. While boats may be launched from the state-managed public water access on the southwest side of the lake, parking there is limited. Parking is not allowed within the immediate ramp area; it also is prohibited along the shoulders of 40th Street Northeast, the adjacent road. The DNR is in the process of designing and constructing a new public boat access on the northwest corner of Pelican Lake.  The project will be started in the fall, but likely will not be completed this year. Some private lake access may be available by arrangement with local landowners; contact DNR area wildlife manager Fred Bengtson for more information: 320-223-7840. Pelican Lake is in the middle of a multi-year drawdown aimed at improving water quality and creating better habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Once considered a waterfowl mecca, slowly rising water levels over some 30 years had killed much of the aquatic vegetation that stabilizes shoreline and provides needed food for migrating ducks. With help from Ducks Unlimited and constitutionally dedicated money from the Legacy Fund, an outlet was created for the lake in 2014 to lower water levels in several stages, with a pumping facility added in 2016. The drawdown will allow soils to consolidate and promote the growth of aquatic vegetation needed by ducks for food and habitat. In addition to providing critical waterfowl habitat, the project also will result in significantly cleaner water. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
