Sunday Fishing?

Recommended Posts

I struck out tonight on Gull. Couldn't find any eyes. Fished 20-30' with nothing but small perch. The perch were so hungry, they were hitting 3+" shiners on my tipup.

Fished Gladstone this moring. Caught 6 small crappies in 2 hours. Very light bites, very small fish, and very picky on presentation. Don't think I want to go out and do that again in the morning.

If anyone wants to hook up tommarrow morning (sunday), let me know. I can't leave for home until I ice a walleye confused.gif. I'll be back out on Gull in the am. If anyone has any suggetions, I'm all ears. Or post up and we can meet up and do some run and gun maybe. Thanks, Paul Stoffel

What a morning. Made it to the lake a little later than I wanted. Arrived about 6:30. Set up on what I think was a weedline in about 16'. Landed my first eye within 5 minuted of jigging. Was using a green and glow buckshot spoon and a minnow head. Ended up landing a 23"-24"-and 5 more in the 12-14" range of which I kept 2. The big ones went back. Boy were they fun. Made numerous runs for deeper water. I moved out to a little deeper water as it got lighter out.

I lost another bigger walleye on a tip up around 8 or so. Lots of small walleyes and perch between 7:45 and 8:30.

Walleye Dan, I stopped at one of your sleepers on the way back at 9. I wanted to see how the boys did the night before. They slept in this morning and didn't get out there until 8:30 or so. They were having trouble lighting the heater so I helped them out and got it going before someone blew themselves up tongue.gif. Nice set up you got there. Might have to get some buddies up here next year and rent it for a night. Later, Paul

Good Trip Paul, Glad the minnows worked for you. Timing is what it's all about sounds like the morning bite was better this weekend. Nice job! Maybe the next time you are up we can get you on a better crappie bite, so far this winter the slabs haven't been cooperating. See you next time!

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
