Chuck,

Just seeing how life up on the big pond is treating you. Is your house still over the flats? Your dad catch anymore 29 inchers? I'm hoping to make it out there one of these days for some walleyes and some midnight eelpout fishing. I'll be giving you a call soon.

Good Fishin, Matt.

Chiro,

I might be fishing Winni this weekend but I'll let you know if I don't. Green Lake in Chisago County is another option that I might go to. I'm in need of some jumbo perch so Winni or Mille Lacs might be on the top of my list. How are the perch up on Mille Lacs this year? I'll let you know closer to the weekend what I'm doing.

Good Fishin, Matt.

Bigguns1,

Are you talking about Winnie or Mille Lacs? Both are reachable just a matter of whether I make it home or not. A few buddies of mine have been doing real well on Winnie but Mille Lacs is fine with me. Let me know.

Good Fishin, Matt.

Matty,
When you heading up? Was not able to make it up to the pond this past weekend due to trying to sell the house. However I am yet to go up there and get skunked. Have seen well over 1,000 perch on the cam every weekend. Normaly get 2-4 jumbo's in the bucket per day. The weekend of the 11th I was up there and cought a few(spend most of the day fishing the minnow bucket out of the bottom of the lake). Noticed that the only way we could get them to bit was constant jiggin! you stop for 15 sec some how all the fish were gone start jiggin and bam you couldn't see your jig cause there was to many fish! Brought 3 home and cought 1 minnow bucket not a bad 12 hours of fishing considering what people have been reporting!

TTYL

Hey Matty stop talking you have a bit smile.gif c-ya

Chuck,

I won't be able to come up friday. I'm picking up Slow Jigger early saturday morning to head up to Winnie. We are coming back saturday night so we won't be staying anywhere. We are probably going to out of Judd's Resort, but we're not sure. We should probably be up there close to 11am. Call me tomorrow night after 9pm and we can talk.

Good Fishin, Matt.

      Our last trip last year required driving through a snow storm! But that time of year is special!

      Will fish around Paynesville, Cass Lake and maybe Osakis.  I generally fish right up to freeze up/firearms deer season in the boat.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge

      I am spending Labor Day week on Kabetogama with my wife. Never been to Kab before so I am looking forward to hopefully figuring out a new lake with good multi-species potential. Any tips from anybody would be appreciated. After that it will be the anticipation of late October and Rainy River! That is probably my favorite trip of the year.

      A project to improve long-term water quality and wildlife habitat on Pelican Lake in Wright County may cause some short-term inconvenience for waterfowl hunters this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  The public water access managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the west side of Pelican Lake will not be usable for boats larger than a canoe or kayak, due to lower water levels created by a drawdown of the lake. While boats may be launched from the state-managed public water access on the southwest side of the lake, parking there is limited. Parking is not allowed within the immediate ramp area; it also is prohibited along the shoulders of 40th Street Northeast, the adjacent road. The DNR is in the process of designing and constructing a new public boat access on the northwest corner of Pelican Lake.  The project will be started in the fall, but likely will not be completed this year. Some private lake access may be available by arrangement with local landowners; contact DNR area wildlife manager Fred Bengtson for more information: 320-223-7840. Pelican Lake is in the middle of a multi-year drawdown aimed at improving water quality and creating better habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Once considered a waterfowl mecca, slowly rising water levels over some 30 years had killed much of the aquatic vegetation that stabilizes shoreline and provides needed food for migrating ducks. With help from Ducks Unlimited and constitutionally dedicated money from the Legacy Fund, an outlet was created for the lake in 2014 to lower water levels in several stages, with a pumping facility added in 2016. The drawdown will allow soils to consolidate and promote the growth of aquatic vegetation needed by ducks for food and habitat. In addition to providing critical waterfowl habitat, the project also will result in significantly cleaner water. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
