Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

Mr. Pike1

I did not get out this weekend as I had to work. I am very interested in the report. I hope the bite turned on out on the big pond. It has been two weeks of very very poor fishing.

Sounds like Minmo had a bad day on the water? Fishin all day for 3 non slot walleyes would kinda suck...when on mille lacs that is...

I agree with minmo. I'm sick of hearing people complain about the lake, indians, slot, etc.. If you don't like it move to ND. I caught some beautiful fish on Christmas eve. 18 to 24 inches fat and healthy and had a blast catching them. 23 feet on a thumper spoon w/ minnow head.

Shut up and fish!

Would also have to agree with minmo and fearme - so many have been spoiled on Mille Lacs that the true prize of catching ANY walleye has been diminished almost completely. 3 5-pounders is more walleye than many people will catch in a lifetime.

fearme - where in ND did you fish? I'm heading out there Tues for the week. I'd be curious to hear your report.

Thanks.

I get tired of people stating how sick and tired they are of listening to other people whine about Mille lacs. If you don't like it, quit reading the Mille Lacs Forum

Here goes...(a partial re-print from Lundeens):

"The ice thickness has improved a little since last week - up to 11 inches on much of the main lake. There are still some pressure ridges to be
reckoned with...

The walleye bite has improved A LITTLE - scattered reports of multiple fish (a decent ratio inside the slot!) have been trickling in, but most are still finding the walleye bite slower than normal. 18-22 feet has been the best range, 25-28 the next. Vineland Bay, Garrison Reef and 9-mile flat are good starting spots. Shiners on a set line are your best bet overnight, and Hawger Spoons or Weasels tipped with a piece of a minnow are tops during the day. There are a ton of small perch with a handful of jumbos mixed in coming from the South Bays. Northern fishing is decent inthese bays too..."

I guess you guys missed my report. I left one I guess you better read it again. If your are looking for a spot forget it! Find your own spot.

Blaze the only time I've been in ND was to see Metallica in Fargo in 92'

Was out this morning out of Mac's Twin Bay. I was in about 18 feet of water and caught a few perch (NO SIZE! only about 6 inches) I moved to about 25 feet and could have stayed there all day and cought small perch however had to head home. I have a perm up there and plan on hitting the lake EVERY Weekend so I will be posting more!

DNR stopped by when I was in the portable and stated that people were catching ALOT of fish (perch and eyes!) up in the shallows (10 feet) this all being over Rocks. NOT GRAVEL though which is what I was over.. Jiggin fat heads! I think I am going to check that out next weekend.. Look forward to reading the postings from this weekend to see what others have done!

I fished on Sunday from 7 until noon. Started out east of Sloppy Joes in 21 fow and caught one small walleye. Marked a lot, but no takers. Moved in to the rock reef just in front of Izatys in 8 fow. Dropped my lure down the hole and almost instantly saw a 26 to 27" walleye eyeing up my bait. He flared his gills a couple times but never got the bait into his mouth. Then he lumbered off - never saw another fish. I'll be back up there New Years eve to give it a better try.

Was up on Sunday 12-29-02, out of Lyback's sitting in about 16-17 feet of water, 2 tiny walleyes about 6-7 inches a piece. Fished from 7:30 til about 2:00 and those were the only fish caught.

Hope you all have better luck then I, have a happy new year...

i'll be back friday, this time i'm going to change it around and get there about noon and stay till dark or a little later. I'll leave reports.

My permanant is in 19 feet, over gravel, at the edge of Hawkbill reef. I fished it Friday through Monday morning and caught 3 walleyes (2 slot) and 8 jumbo perch.

I saw fish on the FL-18 most of the time. I tried different sizes/colors of hooks, fatheads, shiners, rainbows, and 2 sizes of crappie minnows. I also tried many different colors/sizes of jig spoons, tipped and untipped. Nils Master Shads, jigging Raps, Halis of various colors, waxies, eurolarvae, and panfish jigs of many sizes and colored, down to the very tiniest. I hit 'em with the whole armada just to try and figure 'em out.

The only pattern (obvious) that I came out with was that the agressive fish came around sunrise/sunset and that the blips (which I assumed were perch) were more excited by an agressive action.

I know I should move around, but I was happy as a clam to be in the permanant and I thought I'd see if I could outsmart the fish.

End report.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good. 
    • Squirrelhawke
      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up. 
    • Squirrelhawke
      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck. 
    • delcecchi
      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!
