Fish & Game Forecast Tables

Recommended Posts

Icerookie

Is anyone familiar with the time tables that the Strib puts out every wednesday on the back of the sports page? It shows what times of the day/night the fish are supposed to be biting better. Does anyone ever use these tools to help their chances or is it a bunch of bunk. Any info is appreciated

I have no faith in the tables which indicate when the fish will be most active. The moon phases do play a role on some lakes though. Forget the tables and try to fish at sun up and sundown for best results.

I personally put as much stock in these tables as the horoscope page. Way to many things can affect fishing that these tables can't address ie: weather, bait fish populations, lake pressure...Good luck and hang on. Bill

      Any help on the walleyes would be great. Been up here a week and caught my share of 13 and below but just can’t get on anything with size. Quite honestly not marking anything. Feel like I’ve tried everywhere. Have they gone deeper? I’ve been fishing reefs that normally hold fish. I’m on the west end but will fish anywhere

      Went dock skipping again yesterday with a friend near Zimmerman and it was still effective.  Chartreuse with black flake has been the go-to color in that murky water.

      How big is the first one? That is a mighty fine looking fish! I am jealous!

      I have to agree with everyone. Up on rainy lake, the bass have been bitting...here’s a few pics...

      Try walking the west side, if you can get a float tube you will have the whole lake to access. Jigs with swimbaits, twisters or crankbaits, jerkbaits work well.  now the you it's summer, frog type surface baits will get you some large bass or even a muskie.  Sorry, I  have been guiding, not watching the network.

      That’s the access I normally use too and yes, it’s a bad set up.  I don’t recall the inspectors car parked in the no parking spot but it’s a sure thing there isn’t much room to turn the rig around!   I can do it with the fishing boat OK but the pontoon requires me to back into the parking area rather than pull in to launch, unless there are zero rigs there already.   The inspector themselves?  Meh, I don’t get too worked up over whatever they say.  Some follow their training to a T and some don’t.  I’m used to dealing with scripted situations though and know they can’t cite me.  I just smile and nod.  I would for sure say something if their car was taking up valuable asphalt there though!!!

      Nice fish!  I was out near mille lacs area and the frog bite was killing it. Had a handful in the 17-20” range.

      It’s been a good summer so far. Of course, fishing always good but the boat traffic is down 75-80%. Drive out, pick a reef and start jigging!. Hopefully everyone can enjoy all parts of rainy next summer. Picture is from my wife and I Monday afternoon (August 3).Caught a total of 20 walleyes, 10 perch. We kept 6 slot fish for supper.

      Great catch! I love fishing while raining. The just enjoy spending time in a lake with cool weather.
