Fishing 20th and 21st...

Recommended Posts

Second time up fishing Walleyes/Sauger this year and just had a few questions. What marine band channels are used by everone up there? Do the charters use one for themselves? I read on one of the posts to fish the weed beds. Where would I find these beds? Have the fish moved out to the reefs yet? Where can I get the GPS coordinates for the different reefs out there? Any help with one or all of these questions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hey der, you betcha there are some fish out on the mainlake rocks.....Nice ones too, With that said there are some fish in the weeds all summer long too. I've been out to a few rock piles over the past week and a half and we've pulled nice fish everytime. Better shot probably at getting yourself some BIG ones on the rocks, or trolling deeper water I'd say. Get yourself one of those Lakemaster pro series maps and you will have #'s to a myriad of spots to fish. Channel 6 has alot of chatter. Different resorts chatter on different channels.

Have fun the bite has been way good as of late.

I can attest to the rocks... If the seas are not rough, get out to the reefs! I was on the big lake most of last week. We only fished two places - a little reef often referred to as 3 mile, + Arnesons reef. We caught numerous hogs at both places. Everyone seemed to be hitting fish and a lot of techniques were working. We were slow rolling bottom bouncers with hammered gold spinners & bait. But down rigging was taking a lot of fish as well as slip bobbering (when calm), and even a few jigs. Great time, awesome bite!! If I told you how many and how big the fish were, you'd probably call me a liar! LOL

Are these reefs on the south side of the lake? Where do you launch to get to them? Thanks

That is correct, they are along the south shore. I believe the two closest places to lauch are Arneson's and Long Point. We went out of Long Point and 3 mile was about 3.5 miles straight out into the lake (north), and Arneson's reef was another couple miles from there. Arneson's is a pretty big reef, so there will likely be some boats on that rock pile. Good luck!!!

There are weeds all along the South Shore. Watch your electronics, they won't be hard to find. Good luck

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      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.

      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.
