By the way how did you get the name, The "Ripple"????? grin.gif

Woman lake for a location? Not bad. You must be an expert about that lake! grin.gifgrin.gif

Ripple:

I don't know you but I'm already jealous. Woman Lake area is God's Country! I've got a place on a small lake up near Mann and I love it up there, can't wait till Monday and I'll be up there!

Beware: this site IS addicting, I've read so much on this site in the last year or so it's sad. My boss would be pissed!

Looks like the deadminnowcatcher is going to come out of his fishing shell in a couple of days and finally wet a line- Hope the big ones are hungry. Might even have a couple of small minnows left to put back on that dock that we stole them from last year. wink.gifwink.gif

Now if we can get JAP on here we would have it made- He was here once upon a time but the powers to be could not tolerate his sense of humor --- It was funny while he lasted cool.gif

Got deadminnows? yuck, yuck, yucky

Ripple,

First of all, welcome to FM!

I also have a place on Woman. What bay were you fishing in Saturday evening? If you were going after the eyes, I bet we were in the same area! We actually did pretty well. My 2.5 yr old son caught a 5 - 6 lb eye on a scooby doo rod. Actually Grandpa had to reel it in for him. It was pretty cool, we thought we were going to lose her because the drag wasn't working so there was some stress on the line.

It is a great area up there. I wish I could spend more time there.

I wanna give Government point a chance at night! Never really tryed it. Ripple you should give her a shot and then give us a report. But thats only if the lake is calm grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif Seriously though, you should! Matter of fact, you should steal some of those minnows back and give them a shot! grin.gif

Diesel D, Where are you on Woman. grin.gif

(Hopper......GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER!) grin.gif

Scoobie doo and Snoopie make great rods. When I was a kid (still am) I used to use that fiberglass rod to wack frogs with then use em for bait. That old rod lasted for years. Still dont know what happened to it? frown.gif Anyways congrats to your boy! bet he was happy!

Ripple and HoleHopper,

We are in Lantern Bay (just down the shore from Bungy). I am sure you know where Lantern Bay is, every night you will see at least 10 boats out on the ridge from 5ish to 10pm or so.

It is amazing what a few feet difference in depth can make on an evening of fishing. I am not saying we are always right, but Saturday evening we were. I probably shouldn't tell you this (but you are fellow FM'ers) so I will. We were in 23' of water and fishing within a couple feet of the bottom. Some of the people around us were higher up on the ledge (around 15' or so) and had no luck using the same tackle.

Too bad the Liquor store moved out of the Muni(sp?). Now it is a little walk from the city docks to pick up some Pop.

Ripple, do you live up there year round?

confused.gifCan either of you tell me where government point is? Is that the point out by the narrow area going into Broadwater?

Good luck fishin'

Hi Icelander--we spend from May 1st to Oct. something here and then go south for the winter , but have been here for 24 years. Actually have dome more fishing in the past, when we were here for mostly weekends and vacations than now when we live here. Gov. point is the point when you leave the Gold coast heading into town and there is boeys there to warn you about rocks.. Haven't been to the muney yet this year.. Make the kids stop at Sam's Club in St. Cloud on the way up for our "pop"..They almost needed a trailer the last time they came wink.gif....Anyway, this year the weather has been so cold and rainy that the few days of decent weather we have had, we just fished out front in Bungey Bay.. From past experience we have found that if they are biting, we do just as well there as anywhere on the lake.. Maybe not as many, but they are bigger--happy fishing

Ripple, First question- Who is Icelander?......... Do you mean Diesel D??....... tongue.gif

Second question- Hopper JR. wants to know if he can come up for a weekend to fish the pond while his parents play hookie and go to Red Lake for a day or two or five??? Heck, for that matter, How does a month of 'quality time' with Jr. sound? shocked.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Diesel, 22 ft. sounds about right! 22 has been the best historical depth to find em in on woman and is no secret. We know where lantern is but dont know what you meen by the ridge. but next time im up I will just look for the boats and hopfully find it. You dont need to describe where for abvious reasons. If it is where I think it is, peaple do very well there in the fall for a couple of weeks.

HoleHopper,

Maybe "ridge" was the wrong term. I just mean an area where it goes from 22 up to 10 - pretty quickly. Sorry for any confusion.

Good luck fishin'

      Had walleye last night with the nephews, gave me a chance to go out again this evening for a quick solo 6, water temp 55 degrees, fish 12-14 ft on jigs

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.
    • Pat McGraw
      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline. 
    • CigarGuy
      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
    • Wheres_Walter
      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
