Terrible Time Figuring Out URL


iceman_44

Recommended Posts

Hey guys:

Well just got back from my 4th trip to URL and again I caught NOTHING. I dont know what in the world I am doing wrong. Maybe just the wrong spot or something. I am going to be going up there again tomorrow night. I was wondering if ANYONE could help me out in finding some fish. My better half is also coming with and if she doesnt catch fish neither of us are happy if you guys know what I am talking about. How far off the bottem are you guys fishing? I had the vex down tonight and didnt even mark anything. I dont know what resort to go out of and where to go from there or anything any help is greatly appreciated and there could be a beer or two in it for the help!!!!

Iceman,

I feel your pain as that lake can humble the best of them. I highly encourage you to attend Slabfest Some of the best URL guys will be there and can coach you on how-to's, what's currently working, and run and gun techniques for the big lake.

Iceman- Looking forward to seeing you at the Slabfest! I can guarantee 1 thing at the Slabfest, a good time! I'll try to get my shack and the HQ near a likely fish holding spot but no guarantees. I just don't have the time to get up there and scout.

Don't feel too bad though, I fished URL 3 weekends in a row around X-mas/New Years and have 1 crappie to show for my efforts. We caught a lot of walleyes and perch but the crappies were very hard to come by.

my best advice on red lake is to fish a foot or so off the bottom with red glow jigs and one more thing is to get away from the crowed because one shack might be catching there limit and all the shacks around them might not be catching nothing i have seen it happen before

If you have a flasher, try to get the fish to follow your bait up from 1 foot to three or four feet. At that point the fish are 90% committed to biting. If you don't have a flasher, use your second line, and keep it four or five feet off the bottom, a lot of times they come in suspended at that level. Dirty or broken ice are sometimes good indicators of where the fish might be.

I also feel your pain, we fished out of morts on thursday feb 9th. caught tons and tons of walleye. 1 crappie for 4 people and we fished from 1030 till 2000hrs. I didn't mark many fish either. I have a friend that has a house on the lake today, he reports that they are doing well going out of hillmans. good luck. rob

      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
