Sportsmans report 2-8 & 2-9


Recommended Posts

My wife and I fished out of Sportsmans houses both days. We were in 26 feet of water and as far East as you can go (guide told us the Canandian line was within a stones throw of our houses both days). Wednesday was pretty good action and we kept our limit of walleyes, all right around 19" and one sauger. Did not catch any on the bobber rods, all caught jigging a whole minnow on a jeweled treble hook. Thursday we were in a different house that was about a foot deeper. Fishing was very slow for us, couldn't get anything to go on either setup. If I marked them on the vex and started to jig they left, if I let it sit, they stared at it. Guide moved us to another house about 2:30 and we picked up 2 nice saugers and threw back 1/2 dozen small walleyes before 5:00. On the ride in we talked to the people in the house next to us, and they had a torrid bite going all day. Had their limit in the first hour and C&R'd the rest of the day, nearly running out of minnows. They said anything pink was the ticket and they pulled their lines for about an hour at lunch just so they could eat in peace! I guess that was the kind of bite I was expecting with the storm moving in, guess we weren't in the right place. Still had a great time and stayed an extra night so that we could drive back in the daylight. Roads were good nearly all the way back to Fargo coming through Bemidji and Park Rapids, only ran into the bad stuff just East of DL on Hwy. 10

      @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

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
