fishing weekend 9/07

I was back up on Friday evening for another night outing. I was surprised to see all the rigs at the Cove landing? I didn't see anyone else catch a walleye. Fished from Sloppy Joe and west, both shore and mid lake structure. Trolling cranks and droping floats. Not one bite that evening? Finally got on them pretty decent at 11:30 p.m. I was the last boat off Cove at 1:30 and there was still a dnr intern chick working. She said she had been working the night shift the last few weeks and almost nobody was getting any anything. If you go out after dark think Shallow, how shallow? What ever you are thinking cut it in half. Good Luck. Grouse Opener next weekend, Ya hoooooo.

Lately the eyes aren't where you expect them to be this time of year. If you want to catch try the weeds. For some reason they have been lying in the weeds late this summer. Pretend you are fishing for bass and you will come up with the eye's too.

Took a launch out of the east side Sat nite. 2, yup, two fish. Twelve people, four hours and two walleyes. Fished from 7-25 ft. Started deep and workred shallower as it got later. Lots of fish on the graph though.
GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Mille weed Walleyes are there year round, we still have room on the FM.com launch trip this Saturday. The two best launch captains on the lake. "It's not what you fish with, but who you fish with"

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.

      yep, lotta lead on the sippi from this guy. LOL  sometimes I do a simple drop shot setup. tie a #4 hook on and leave about a foot or less of line. then just pinch the split shot on bottom and jig away. didnt have to tie on so many hooks.

      Nice report! Glad to see there are others still getting out on the river too. I need to get simpler in my presentation and use the fathead/split shot technique more often. I can’t afford to lose 3 swimbaits or rapalas each time out. 😭
    • eyeguy 54
      dont talk yourself out of it. might hit a couple spots again this coming week for fun. Over the years I have had off and on luck till thanksgiving time. Couple pics from this fall.  I just like a fathead on 1/8 oz jig or a plain hook with a split shot. Quite the battle when the 28 inch northern tried to eat the bass. It got stuck on the jig so reeled them both in. Ran into the current two times. Fight city. LOL

      Yeah, I’ve thought of ice fishing below some of the dams in the area, but I always end up talking myself out of it.

      I've been doing OK, too.  I dunno how long the bite last. In the old days when we had real, manly winters, we'd whack 'em through the ice down below the Sartell dam, so I imagine they'll keep biting as long as we're willing to tough it out. 
    • MinnowBuckets
      Thanks guys! I wonder how much longer the bite will last with the cold temps this fall. The water is already extremely cold for this time of year. Anyone else have any reports?
    • eyeguy 54
      nice job!  gotta love the fall bite on the sippi.

      So Gimruis has a problem with meat hunters on the lake.  Then he should be promoting the use of cameras instead of guns when out hunting birds or animals.  If you want to fish for sport and look down on those that fish for food then go get a hand held fishing game and sit on the shore.  Believing something is the truth doesn't mean that it is.  You can say the lake isn't mismanaged all you want and that the surveys work because the people using them have advanced degrees.  I work for people in construction that have degrees but don't know crap about what actually happens on a construction site.  The worst thing to happen to electricians is schools putting out project management courses.  Now instead of people with practical knowledge running jobs we have people schooled in theory with big ideas and egos to match.  You Gimruis seem to be the same.  Saying that people shouldn't fish for food and saying they are the problem is insanity.  You have no place in this conversation.
