Going out of Stocky's this weekend

Recommended Posts

wormfood

Heading up to the big pond and I am going to be staying in a rental at Stocky's with a couple other friends.

I am just looking for info on what's accessable from Stocky's and is close by that I could try during the day for perch. I don't want to be driving all over the ice.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks.

SW side of the lake just as you pass through Onamia. Another thing I forgot to ask and haven't seen in the forum is how much ice there is. I've got a power auger but I'm wondering if I'll need an extension...

Thanks for the tip Derek.

I fish out of Stocky's but haven't been up there as of late. If you go out of Stocky's Harbor follow the road to the group of houses out and to the right about 1/2 mile. Go left off of there and you'll find a reef tht comes up to 18-19 feet and drops off into the main lake. We have done well there for slots. Sorry I don't have better directions, but look for guys in portables as they are usually on the fish.

We ended up catching a couple eyes and a put friday night (no fish in the slot).

We managed to convince a couple nice perch to bite sat & sun with absolutely nothing over night! We saw a ton of perch on the camera but they just were not biting. 20+ mph winds and deadly cold probably didn't help much.

We tried to check out the recommended areas with the portable (not sure if we were in right spots) but we were marking fish but no bites. Probably drilled about 50 holes in varying depths with no luck except a bad case of chilly feet!

Overall it was a fun weekend as the rental shack was da bomb! Now all I have to do is stop by Dewey's and pick up my pillow that I forgot in the shack. My wife just hates the fact that the pillow cases goes with the sheets we have and how could I forget it up there! Ha! Thanks again for the tips, maybe next time...

Sounds like you were in the average catch rates of what's been going on up there this year. Dewey's a great guy, you'll get that pillow back for sure. Sounds like a bad weekend for searching out of the cozy cabin.

      This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      Geese are beginning to flock as I seen a number flying over the past couple days.

      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.

      Bad electrical connection will create heat.
