Baudette Question?

Recommended Posts

FOOTDOC

Well, once you are off the ice for the night, there is not too much to do in good old Baudette. So, my son and I hit the area tackle stores so he could buy more jigs(!!!) and I noticed what appeared to be at least two very large light beams coming from south of the city. They appeared to be shining straight up into the sky and it reminded me of the grand opening lights they use at stores around here at night. Only thing is, it appeared the lights came from now where?! Does anyone know what these lights are used for? Just curious! My son said that it was a way for aliens to find Baudette. I told him, no, we used highway 72! [email protected]

I think you may have seen lights out near the Coast guard LORAN tower.

FOOTDOC- The beems of light that you saw south of Baudette were lights from the AET test site located on the old radar station base, not the lights from the Loran C station. The old radar base is only about 3 miles south of Baudette. If you are curious AET is pretty much does the same stuff as the Bosch Automotive test site right north of baudette. If would like to know more about the AET site then you can visit them at www.automotiveenvirotesting.com. It was ranked number 1 in north america and like 10th in the world for cold weather test sites. It has lighted tracks and such which create a light of light beams. I encourage anyone to check out the website. It is really cool the stuff the have and how nobody hardly knows about them around the area.

BTurck, I had the same problem with the link (don't need another phone) but noticed an extra . at the end. Remove the last period and the link goes to the right spot !

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
