Was out Saturday afternoon-evening through Red Door in about 28FT. 5 of us in 3 fishhouses-portable. One group got a 26" and another 22". One caught on a laser minnow 2000 w/rainbow chub (I think that is what its called) and another on a plain red hook w/rainbow chub. Could I say Brrrrrrrrrrrr.
Graphed a lot of fish, but nothing wanted to open its mouth.

Just talked with my partner. He fished with two clients today from 2:30 to 8:00 pm. They caught 11 eyes, two in the slot, two over 25 and lost two more at the hole. 24 feet on the edge of a north end mud flat. Orange Buckshot spoons and bobbers with glow jigs and fatheads. The fish were crusing three feet off the bottom. Sounds like it might be picking up...

Fished Sat. evening East side 26' and managed 3 slot fish. And 2 under, and 1 19". Caught em on silver 1/2oz. spoons tipped with a head. Sunday morning same spot 1 18" and 1 25" and finally 5 jumbos. Perch came out of 31'. Had a spot all to myself, marked alot of fish, but most were small eyes, but the bigger slot + fish were very aggressive. Things should pick up here in the next few weeks. Avoid the crowds and punch alot of holes.

remember to: CROSS THEIR EYES

My son was at Mac's TB on the gravel Friday night to Sat. afternoon. One 5", one 17", one 26", lost 3 at the hole. (all eyes). This is the best trip so far. However I still had to buy walleye for my dinner Sunday. Maybe things are picking up!!

Fished one of the northern flats on Sun. We got six eyes. One slot fish, a 27 incher, a couple of mid 20's and a couple of low 20's. We also missed a few frown.gif when we were being checked by the CO. 26 feet of water with a red glow jig took a few while my partner got his few on a bushot rattle spoon. We were tipping both with heads of shiners

      I haven’t seen many posts lately which means I’m not the only one struggling to find fish. I ventured out of Frazer into Big Bay today and fished 20 fow on a shore line pulling a spinner/crawler  at 1 mph and got a limit of nice fish in a half an hour. They hit almost as soon as I got the bait to the bottom. Just me and the lab- - otherwise, we would’ve put a lot more fish in the boat. It was the third place I tried. It’s good advice to fish where you see fish on the sonar.  RLG

      Sounds like a great time, Hoey. Keeping active with old friends is really important...……….as I have advanced well past "middle age", most of my friends I fished/hunted with have either died or quit the outdoors pursuits. Bummer. However, Thursday I head to Morson with one of my remaining partners to spend a few days at his place at Sportsmans Landing, always a good time. That part of LOW is really fun! Endless rock humps to fish, and little traffic. A couple years ago, I got my bud into jigging raps and similar lures. Big fun jig rappin the sand flats in that area. And usually, we catch a few crappies for a great meal. One observation  after many years of fishing LOW north and east of Big Traverse involves the rock humps.....anyone with thoughts on this, please weigh in. In big Traverse, the rock bite peaks in July and slowly peters out. There are still good days, but by late August, you have to run and gun to find fish on the rocks. However, in Sabaskong, Little Traverse and areas north and east of Big Traverse, the rock bite stays very strong. On Whitefish Bay, my best rock fishing was the last couple weeks of August. My thought is it is because of the pressure on  the US side and the lack thereof on the Canada side. Opinions? Good luck.

      I was fishing 18-25 fow.  I cruised several humps that topped out around 17-20 fow and found fish on about 1/2 of them.  I only fished spots I marked good numbers of fish on them.   By horizontal I mean either making long cast and snapping the jigging rap back sharply or trolling 1- 1.2 mph and having enough line out that there would be a little slack before my next snap of the rod at that speed/depth.  You don't feel the hit.  The fish is just there on the next snap that then turns into a hook set.   I've also fished them vertically but many times the more horizontal presentation works better.  At least for me.   I caught fish on both 7&9 sizes.  But the 7s are easier on my arm with repetitive snapping of the rod.  These fish heavy and I've fished them like this in more than 30 feet of water. Metallic perch was the best color for me this weekend followed by rainbow trout or chartreuse.   Even caught several pike and crappies doing this type of fishing.  Moonshine shiver minnows work well too.  They get the nod when there is most on the bottom.  They fish cleaner that the jigging raps.

      when was the most recent time it started normally?   You did start mixing oil in gas when you disconnected the injection system, right?

      I have a 1984 40hp evinrude, when to start this year after it has been sitting for 5yrs. It was drawing so much juice that it melted one one the terminals off. The only thing different is I disconnected the oil injection system because it was in constant alarm. Did this after talking to the service dept at a outboard motor dealership. Everything else is the same, when i parked it would turn over with no problem, now hard turning. Anyone have idea i am out of them.   Thanks

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of a zebra mussel in East Silent Lake in Otter Tail County.  A property owner contacted the DNR after finding a one-half inch zebra mussel attached to a native mussel near a dock in about two feet of water. DNR staff conducted follow-up searches of more than 1,500 objects in East Silent Lake and found no additional zebra mussels. The lake will be added to the infested waters list, because the DNR verified the initial report. The lake will be monitored for additional zebra mussels. “It’s helpful that lake users are being vigilant and are contacting us when they suspect they’ve found a zebra mussel,” DNR invasive species specialist Mark Ranweiler said. “We ask people to keep the specimen and send us a photo, to assist with identification and confirmation.” 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. 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.

      Hey Borch, What do you mean by horizontal presentation for jigging raps?  How deep were the mid lake humps you were fishing?  I've been experimenting with jigging raps this year and have caught some on them, but not a lot.  One final question, I've been using size 7.  What were you using?  THANKS.
    • Borch
      The eyes I got from 11 - 11:45 am.  The gills and crappies from 2:30 - 4:30 pm.  We did a picnic lunch and a boat tour of the lake as it was Wanda's first time on Osakis.   The panfish bite was very good.   Enjoyed our time as well.   Was hoping to see you before I went to get Wanda and left active fish.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of zebra mussels in Eagle Lake in Kandiyohi County.  A property owner contacted the DNR after finding a one-half inch zebra mussel on the north side of Eagle Lake. DNR staff conducted a two-hour snorkel search and found one additional zebra mussel on a settlement plate attached to a dock. The lake will be monitored for additional zebra mussels. “It’s helpful when lake users contact the DNR if they think they’ve found a zebra mussel or any other invasive species,” said DNR invasive species specialist Eric Katzenmeyer. “We ask people to keep the specimen and send us a photo, to assist with identification and confirmation.” 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.
