Hit URL over the new year and stayed in one of Bear Paw's sleeper's out of West Wind. Very good service and the house was warm and clean. We got up there around noon on Friday and by Saturday at 5:00 pm or so we had 7 crappies (13"-14.5"), 4 eyes (19"-20"), 3 small perch, and 3 pike (4-5 lbs). Nothing too great but a little action here and there. A couple friends met us out there saturday afternoon and they headed over to Hillmans and got their limit in two hours. We pulled the pin saturday night because of the bad weather.

Later,

Granny

Did you do move around to fish or stay in the house? I'm guessing that you were out off WW road, sounds like there were some nice fish caught last weekend. We will have sleds and the otter to do some moving around on the lake to get away from the crowds. Sounds like the daybite is going pretty good too, may not make it up to LOTW afterall.

Glad you were able to get a few slabs despite the weather.

Xplorer,

The wife and I didn't have a portable, wish we would have though. We were kind of in a crowd but no houses "right" by us. Another guy that came up with us had his house about 20 feet away and he didn't do very good at all. The crappies bit in the morning and in the evening before sun down. That was only my second time up there and the first time catching crappies so a slow bite was still ok.

Granny,

Thanks, which shack did you guys have?? The only one left when i called was the 6x10 two man. Sounds like the bite was pretty good out of Hillmans road, we'll be making the rounds on the sleds to hopefully put a few in the bucket.

Your probably just glad to get there and back in one piece after the weather last week/weekend smile.gif

We had the 3 man sleeper. Yea the weather was pretty bad and my buddy's had a GPS so we followed them off the lake. We decided to cut our losses and get off the lake while we could. It took us a long time to get to Bemidji going 35 mph in 4 wheel drive. The roads had about 10" of snow and it was drifting pretty bad on the lake.

      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.

      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.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      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!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
