Bugs/ may flies

Recommended Posts

Nova

was anyone there yesterday to see if the may flies hatched. I saw a couple huge balls of bugs coming up on the graph Sunday and Monday. Can't wait to have those slapping me in the face. frown.gif

They hatched all right. I could hear the hum on the south shore. Not as bad as I have seen in the past, however.

The flies are thick as thieves today. You couldn't talk without eating one. Fished 4 hours for walleye around Vineland and 7 mile. Not a bite, larvae everywhere. Smallies were on their beds for the most part in the SE corner. Caught 9 smallies in about 4 hours. You may want to avoid Mille Lacs for a couple weeks until the flies and smallie spawn is over.

I was in the Malmo area on Sunday and the bugs were not an issue, but I was there during the day.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
