Southeast Conditions - Isle

Recommended Posts


Had the pleasure of getting out yesterday, Sunday, with my brother Alphid and two other guys we met on Fishing Minnesota, Mykal and Cordell. Had a great time, nice to meet fishermen like ourselves that like to get out and have a fun time fishing and sharing information and meeting new people, thanks guys was fun!

Ice conditions were good out of there, probably about 6-8 inches all around. we drilled all over looking for the structure, finding the break, etc. We graphed fished periodically, we surmised they were perch for the most part because they were just nipping at the fatheads we had on. You had to keep your bait active to grab their attention and get them to come in the area, that seemed evident. I pulled in two of them in on a #2 Swedish Pimple, with green sticker on it, with a head of a fathead. Later on, i was lucky enough to get two short walleyes on the same bait, just jigging a foot off the bottom in about 14 feet, off a break from 8 feet, with rocks/hard bottom. When the walleyes came in, they seemed to want it, chasing the bait hard on the vexilar, then the rod was bent...but they were dinks, so what can you say?

Either way, first time out on the lake this year, it was fun, nice meeting those guys too, and even nab some fish. We should plan that again soon maybe over this weekend, we will be in touch, thanks for the spot!

Anytime whopper! Likewise. Heck you caught all of the fish so as far as the "spot" We can do better. One of our "A" spots should be good to go this weekend. Lets plan on this weekend. Hopefully we won't get caught in the middle of another cold front.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
