Fishing Report

Hey guys a friend and I are looking at making one last run to the pond on Friday. Going out of the SE. Just wondering what size cranks and what color seem to be working the best? Any particular area working better? Any info would be nice since we probably will only be there for the day/eve. Thanks for the info

SLOW is the key. Anything over 1.0 mph = no fish. I know from very recent experience.

Has anyone been catching fish off Maz. Pt., Andersons or Indian Pt. using the super slow system? When I was out last Thursday evening, I was trolling around 1.5 mph using the same colors as described plus many more with no success. Maybe that extra .5 mph turned the fish off I guess.

Houseboat,
I was out last night around Indian PT and got into them. They are there just need to get them to bite. Slow is the key. Lund Explorer is right

Fishin4aLivin,
Use Firetiger or clown jerk baits. If there is some moon light breaking through go with the clown. If there is more cloud cover go with the Firetiger. The fish are out there but you need to give them what you want.
I was out last night and got some fish by making sweeps with my rod and letting the bait suspend in the water. The fish are very fat and are not willing to work too hard to get the bait. Be slow and persistent.

Alphid,
I usually fish from before suset into the evening. Sometime between 10 p.m. and midnight typically, depending on the bite. Is this covering the time that you have been getting fish?

fishing is still awsome, and you should make it out if you can. It is much better then a few weeks ago, they are now stacked up in the shallows thick, really thick and very large.

We are still getting up there in the boat until the ice forms. Thanks for the updates everyone. We have tied into a few during the daylight hours as long as it's cloudy. Sounds like the night bite is the better bet right now. See you on the water.

Fished most of the night Sunday and caught 1 northern (31"). I'm thinking we should have gone slower than 1.5 MPH, because the 'eyes weren't interested. SLOW is essential!

Are the shallow fish being caught closer to dusk or more late night into the wee hours? I'm going up tonight to give it a try.

Does anyon know if any of the resorts are still renting boats? My friend says that he doesn't feel like getting his boat out again. I am buying a boat this winter, any suggestions? (I do prefer a Merc. on the back). Thanks!

I have only really fished for these in the night hours and therefore have only that opinion to offer. I have been catching them on Firetiger and clown jerk baits. slow is the key. I am going to be out there tonight. I let everyone know how we do.

I fished last night until 10:00 p.m. catching (2) decent fish, a 27 1/2" and 25". I caught them on the shallow rocks using a Lazer Perch Super Rogue and a Holographic Rebel Minnow. It was cold and icy, but even one fish would've made it worth while. I'll probably try again this weekend.

Thanks for posting. I am going to try and convince Cyberfish to skip or cut short the Croix and head north. Will go out of Indian if anywhere.

HouseBoat,
Must of just missed you yesterday. Went out last night and started fishing aroung 7:30. Caught about 10 fish. Nothing of to really brag about, except a couple of eaters, which was nice.
We caught them on FireTiger in about 7-9 feet of water. We were basically trolling about 1 mph or so with rod sweeps every so often. The fish hit the bait pretty hard but after a little bit they stopped fighting and just felt like dead weight.
We got off the water around 11:30 or so because it was getting pretty cold. I am thinking about maybe getting out there this weekend, possible Sunday, if the weather is half way decent and wind is minimal.
If you can bear the cold wind and your rod tips freezing up you should be able to do well. Does anyone know anything that could prevent your tackle from freezing? We tried Silicon and it worked for a little bit.
Let me know how everyone does.

Hammer em, my e-mail is acting up so I don't know if you got my email. I would like to know what kind of a boat you have. Can you post some details for me? While I am in the buying mood. Does anyone know of anything on Mille Lacs that is for sale? Looking for a summer cabin, nothing fancy. Thanks for the help.

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!  
    • Wanderer
      WOW!!!

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.       
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.
    • delcecchi
      Vermilion is in low 70's
    • delcecchi
      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....
    • srj
      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
