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.

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem. 
    • eg_gophers2124
      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA

      Lake is connected to two others with zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of a zebra mussel in East Loon Lake in Otter Tail County. East Loon Lake is between and connected to East Spirit Lake and Sybil Lake, both of which were confirmed as having zebra mussels in 2016.  A lake user contacted the DNR after finding a single adult zebra mussel in East Loon Lake, which DNR specialists confirmed through photos and the specimen itself. No additional zebra mussels were found during a follow-up survey. “It’s helpful that an alert individual contacted us when they suspected they’d found a zebra mussel,” DNR assistant invasive species specialist Mark Ranweiler said. “Because they kept the zebra mussel, we were able to confirm the species identification.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Zebra mussels can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species. More information is available at mndnr.gov/ais.

      ....is a City Park.  Land of Memories  with a lot of Minnesota and Blue Earth River shore access and I believe you can access the confluence of the rivers there as well.   Another attraction not really connected to fishing is Minneopa State Park with the falls on one side of the road and drive through buffalo herd area on the other.  Parks require a car window sticker for entrance.   Good Luck

      I like them when it's dead calm they seem to work great then. When it gets a little ripple on top not as effective but still learning with them. Thanks for the report jigginjim

      class of 70 here, and the park across the river  is Land of Memories if I remember correctly...

      Anglers can play a role in a proposed fishing regulation change for northern pike on Lake Vermilion that would simplify northern pike regulations by bringing them in line with the new statewide zone regulation starting in May 2019.  Anyone who wants to ask questions and give input about the regulation proposal can attend an open house scheduled by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, at the Tower Civic Center, 402 Pine St., in Tower, Minn. Lake Vermilion northern pike are currently managed under a special regulation that requires all pike from 24 to 36 inches long to be released and only one fish over 36 inches is allowed in a three-fish possession limit. Under the northeast pike zone regulation, all fish from 30 to 40 inches long must be released and no more than one over 40 inches is allowed to be kept in a two fish possession limit. Spearers would be allowed to take any size pike but would be allowed only one fish over 26 inches in the two fish possession limit. “We are interested in the public’s preference about this because either regulation will help maintain the size of pike anglers enjoy on Lake Vermilion,” said Edie Evarts, Tower area fisheries supervisor. “Northern pike have done well and average size has increased under the special regulation that began in 2003. But a shift to the statewide zone regulation would simplify regulations while still protecting a portion of pike.” Public comment on the pike regulation can be submitted through Wednesday, Sept. 26. Questions or comments may be directed to the Tower area fisheries office, 650 Highway 169, Tower, MN 55790, by calling 218-300-7803, or emailing [email protected] Additionally, an open house about this proposal and other fishing regulations under review is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at the DNR Central Office, 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul. Staff will take comments on this proposal and other fishing regulations under review around the state. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
