last minute advice


Recommended Posts

I am going to be staying at McQoids tonight with my family. It will be my mom, wife and three little kids. I am thinking of doing some slip bobber action this evening. Any advice on spots? Are they still biting on the shallow rocks, or do I need to take them all the way out to the gravel. I would like to stay relatively close to McQoids area. I would appreciate any tips as this is my one and only time up there this year, and I would love them to catch a couple walleyes or perch. Thanks, Joe

Muskiejoe, the last two weekends my kids and I have done well on the gravel/rocks on and around 2 mile. We have been in 21 to 25 feet. Most boats have been deeper by the drop off. We have caught fish from 9 inches to 26 inches day and evening. Check it out. I think most of the deeper rocks and gravel are holding fish and they seem to be very aggressive. Oh yea and we have caught perch in the 9 to 12 inch range also. good luck!

You guys are awesome. I think I will go out about 6/7:00 and try deeper gravel first and if no good, try graveyard or banana reef. Thanks again, Joe

Try spider reef as well, I did pretty well there last friday. Drift up into 8 feet, but the wind was blowing from isle that day...play the wind and drift over or anchor on top....Hennepin on the south side is always good in the evening as well. at least 2 of the last 3 weekends I have been out there at night

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
