What happened to this board?

Recommended Posts

Fishing boards are like movies.

On opening night at the movies and the weeks that lead up to it people are overexcited and chattering about it constantly. Telling stories about how they liked it and how many times they saw or will see the movie. But over time, the movie loses steam and people stop talking about it.

Then comes the sequel?

Blaze,
No people fishing = no reports. We were out last Saturday night. I could only see 6-7 boats as far as the eye could see. Fishing was VERY slow.

GOOD LUCK!!

Nobody please take this the wrong way, but over the last couple months the nature of this board seems to have changed quite a bit. Looks like the board has kinda turned into a get-together/politics/ban-the-Tribe tool compared to how people were using it earlier this season.

Don't get me wrong here - I'm glad y'all are using it and it's a great way to communicate about this stuff, I guess I'm just wondering
IS ANYBODY WETTIN' LINES THESE DAYS?? I'd love to hear how things are going as far as fishing success and pattern changes on the Big Pond especially as fall rolls in and the hogs put on the feed bags.

Guess I just miss the juicy updates of what's working and what's not - success/failures out on the water. Any reports out there or is everyone switchin' over to hunting season and parking their boats?

Tight lines,
Blaze

I guess with the bite relatively slowing down I have been putting in time fixing the house but now its done and I'm ready to go haul in some PIGS!!

Since the wife scheduled us at one of those hard-sell condo seminars at Izaty's for the day Saturday, I took it upon myself to work in an outing off Big Point Saturday nite, pulling some cranks. Anyone been out there lately? I'll be in the blue Lund.

I'll be on Mille Lacs this weekend for the first time since early August. I should have more to talk about than the treaty stuff for a change after that.

I've had a lot to say about the potential night ban because if it goes through, I won't be on Mille Lacs past October 1st. With that potential disaster hanging over the situation, the "how's dey bitin'" stuff seems trivial to me.

I see your point though. The treaty stuff is the LAST thing I WANT to talk about!

I'm with Schnauzer, I haven't been on the lake since the Friday before Labor day. I'm hoping to get there next week for some muskies, and the night bite should be heating up as the water cools down.

All this other stuff that's boring you is also important to the life of this board, so I don't mind it.

Well, I did make it out on Saturday. It was good confirmation why you aren't seeing a lot of Mille Lacs reports.

The boat launch only had about 3 other rigs parked there when I arrived (mid afternoon). I pulled deep diving cranks on the edge of 7 Mile and medium and shallow runners on the rocks in the big waves and only managed 3 walleyes all afternoon/evening. It was really slow.

The good news is all three fish had fat bellies and great color. They were the three healthiest fish I have seen on ML this year. It appears the baitfish did well this spring and the walleyes followed for a health rebound over the summer.

Boat control took a lot of concentration in the 25 mph wind and huge waves. It was a tough outing in pretty much every respect.

Water temp was still too high (68) to get the fall patterns going.

Thanks for the update, Schnauzer. Glad you were able to pick up a few fish. Amazing how spoiled we've been on ML this year, huh? Most any other lake I fish I'd be pretty happy with 3 eyes in an afternoon/evening - maybe I'm shootin' low on my expectations, but any fish = good fish in my book. smile.gif Unfortunately, if I don't pull 5+ fish in an outing on ML I seem to consider it a "bad" day...

Air temp of 48 at home this morning. The water will be cooling quick and the fishing will be heating up if it keeps up.

Tight lines,
Blaze

Try running boards over the cabbage. It's been working well for me. Shad raps with about 5 feet of line out. A lot more fish in the weeds than most people think. C/R

      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)

      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.
