SOUTH/EAST FISHING

Recommended Posts

Will be up this weekend to fix up the ice house a bit before it gets too cold. Planning on putting the boat in the water for a while too. Will likely be during the day mostly with possibility of a little night fishing for one night. What is recommended during the day/evening? Will be near Brandts during the day and Hunters Point overnight. Lindy rig or Bobber fish during the day? Sloppy Joes or 5 mile? etc.

Thanks - Camo

Camoman,

Sounds pretty much like what I'll be doing. We're going to be at Brandt's working on our ice house also. We plan to bring the boat and do strictly night fishing. If you have a chance, stop by the ice house during the day. We'll be all the way in the back of the lot towards the pine trees (tan sided house with truck/boat combo in front). Hopefully we can exchange info...or at least stop and have a beer.

Tonka Boy -
We will likely be repairing the ice house sometime Saturday. Dont know yet if we are heading up Friday night or Sat morning. We will be at one of the first houses as you enter the storage lot. (The 8x12 Camo house - imagine that...) Swing by if you see us or we will look on the end for you.
Good Luck

Was on Mille Lacs last weekend, caught 4 fish Thursday night and was blown off Fri and Sat. Poblably could have toughed it out but after golfing 18 holes and the fact the Twins were on TV, well, let's just say I wussed out. One thing I did notice however was the fish were in towards shore, not on the reef's. Caught nothing on the reef's and caught the 4 trolling just off shore. I would suggest you start trolling off shore before heading out to the reef's.

Kidd-

How deep were you running? At the edge of the first break, or further in?

FishNChester. Fished the east side and stayed in about 6 - 10 ft. Number 9 Rap with a 1/4 oz split shot about 3 feet up the line. Try to keep your speed to under 1.5 mph.
Forgot to mention, I was anywhere from 10 - 30 yards from shore.
Good luck.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️
