Week of 11/17 Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Alphid

Well, last night was one of those crazy nights that you wonder what you are thinking about. I was heading home and I called my buddy telling him that it would be a great night to get on the lake, the moon was out and it was relatively warm. My friend who usually is a little more reluctant to just go on the whim says that he will go if I want to, so we get a weather report. It was a favorable report, low winds, not getting too cold as night progress, and mostly clear. Needless to say, we went out, leaving at 6 and getting up there about 7:30. We ended up starting fishing about 8. Here is the story that you probably want to hear.
About 5 minutes into fishing I hit about a 25" fat walleye, about 5#. It fought surprising better than most of my fish this fall. About a half hour later I got another one. This was about 24" and was equally fat and was a good 4-5#. My friend using a Clown jerk bait switch to the firetiger (the only color working for me this year) after seeing my results. About an hour or so later he finally got into one. It was about 24" and was a good 4-5 again. I got another on about 5 minutes later and this was the big one for us. About 26-27 and was a good 6, closer to 7#. A very good looking fish and surprising a strong fighter. My buddy then proceeded to catch a couple more both were about 22-23" and were fat. We ended up getting off the lake about 12 but didn't have a fish in the last hour. All in all, 6 fish, low winds, great moon light, and comfortable weather, a great night to be out there.
We caught all of our fish on the firetiger husky jerk, in about 10-12 feet of water. It seemed that the fish were relating close to living weeds and grouping around the same areas. After we got one we would loop back around and get another one in the same area. It also seemed as though the fish were hungry also. The fish hit great, had the bait well into their mouths, and fought well the whole time, a change from previous outings. We were moving as slow as possible with our motor, occasionally making big turns, kicking out of gear (slowing down).
I think there might be a couple nights left of some great action prior to ice up. Hopefully the weather holds warms and the nights are clear and I will be out there.

Alphid,

Sounds good to me. I am out of here and headed up to the pond right now. I should be fishing around 1pm this afternoon. I will most likely fish til around 10 or 11 tonight.

I think I will hit the northeast end sand areas using minnow baits and expanding from there depending the outcome.

If anyone will be out there today.I will be in a blk/slvr lund angler with a 50hp yammy on back. Stop by and say hello.

Got out last night and launched out of Shabosh Kung. Had four fish. My biggest was a 26 the size of a football. Another boat had 5 with a 27. The fish were huddled together and very sparse but if you found one you would usually get another in the same area, then it would shut down. Ice is starting to form in the bay. The water temp was 34.8 out at 14 feet or so and 33.7 closer to shore. The walleyes I caught were in the 14-15 foot range. Last week we were getting them in 7-10.

Fathead/Waterwolf,
How did you guys do? Just wondering. I am possibly thinking about going up again this weekend, but with the weather, we will see. Before we know it I think the ice is going to be forming. Where did the season go?
Mykal-glad to see that you got some. I be in touch with you.

A, We plan on fishin' indian point this evening around 5 or so Me and Basspastor in my boat, Gem eye guy and his friend in his boat. If we get fish tonite, we might be out again Sat. evening as well. Look for the 14 ft aluminum boat plain aluminum colored with the 20 hrs Johnson and homemade rubber splashguards. We are planing on trolling indian point, but if they are not biting there, we could try in front of eddies, where BP has got some nice fish from shore, or rocky reef.
I jhust hope it is clear out so we get some good moonshine smile.gif

Wen't fishin' at indian point with bassputz, and gem eye guy. it was miserable to say the least, got out there arouind 6 pm to be greeted with 10 foot waves that froze to everything on contact! No fish , then went over to fish in front of eddies, nice and calm there. No fish there either. Fished the point again today around 9. huge waves 50 mph winds and snowing like crazy. and no fish! I think I am done for the season on the dead sea! Mabye if the weather gets really warm I might hit the rivers, otherwise I am done smile.gif

Good luck to anyone goin' out, your gonna need it tongue.gif

      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)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      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.
