I've got some room

Recommended Posts

Due to the cold weather, I am postponing taking the kids up to the shack this weekend, so it is just going to be Fiskyknut and I. If anyone wants to join us, I have room for two or three more. Post an email or phone # here, and I'll get in touch.

Walleye,

If I wasn't 7 hrs away and hadn't promised the kids pizza and movies tonight I'd be a serious threat grin.gif

Even so, my hats off to the forum and the FM Family that make posts like Walleyejohn's possible!

Good luck!

Well Yankee, I've had the pleasure of meeting quite a few FMer's, and have no problem offering an opportunity to fish, and trade lies. As far as being any type of threat, all I can say is I can catch burbot with the best of them, so bring your A-game.

Walleyejon - I'm with 'ya - those pout have to be about the homeliest creatures the good Lord has put in water!

Hope we've on the same page, the threat wasn't toward you - it's likely a Southern term that means the same as "a possibility".

Good luck and stay warm!

Jon,

I'm back and forth to Baudette all weekend for Hockey, with downtime here and there.

If I can swing out there, would you guys prefer a "hot one", or a "cold one"?

If I wasn't just up there last weekend I'd be all over this opportunity. It's killin' me! Sounds like a great time and a chance to meet some new folks.

Wrong weekend for me too. I think I met you earlier this year at the Streiff Tournament. Were you the one looking for a partner? I'll be up next weekend if you guys want to get together and wet a line. I'm not sure which days it will be yet since we're actually going to be staying down at Red. I should be there by Thursday. It would be nice to get together again if anyones available.

widetrack- I'm guessing you've been out to the shack with Fisky? I'll have some beers out there, so a "hot one" would hit the spot.

gspman- Next time you're up, let us know. Or maybe you, widetrack, and me can meet in Osakis and catch a thousand fish. Apparently there is no limit over there--sorry couldn't resist.

yellowsub--I posted on here looking for a partner, and did fish the tournament, to be honest, I met so many people that weekend, I couldn't put a name to a face if you paid me. Keep us posted on your upcoming plans, I'm sure we can work something out.

I'll see how the day goes tomorrow... If I can slip away I sure will...

I have a vague idea where your shack is, but no, I haven't been there.

I knew that Osakis thing was going to make it over here. I'm done with that one. I've got better things to waste my energy on. If I can swing another trip up I'll try and make contact. Thanks for the offer.

Curt,

While you're curled up on the couch like a little girl, you should think about some plans for a March get together on the ice.

Hope you're feeling better.

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

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem. 
    • eg_gophers2124
      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA
