2-12-06 Burntside report


Recommended Posts

Not a fast and heavy day today, though temps in the high teens with mostly sun and not too bad a wind made it nice to be on the ice.

Between me, Chunkytrout and a brand new FM member who will probably make himself known soon, we probably saw six or eight fish on the electronics. Fished a good spot within sight of Dollar Island. Had another friend there as well.

That new FM guy, on his first laker outing, landed two lakers. No paying the trout gods for this guy! grin.gif I managed one a bit under 3 lbs early, but saw only one fish the rest of the day on the Vex. Chunky had a great day as a guide. Our other friend also caught a 2 lb eater after moving a short distance away between a couple islands.

We were breaking it down and packing it up about 3 p.m. with my jingle bells indicated a flag on my tip-up, which was sporting a dead cisco half way down the water column in 50 FOW. Didn't feel like much at first, but then it started stripping line. A few minutes later, a 6.5 stocker came through the hole.

Not a bad day at all. grin.gif

We're planning to fix lake trout, eggs and hash browns on Wednesday morning for Chunkytrout's weekly boundarwatersradio.com fishing report gig. For those of you who don't know, he goes on every Wednesday at 6:30 a.m. at that Web site, and once in awhile they rack me out of bed to join him.

We'll cook it all up right there in the radio station HQ and mmmmm, it'll be so good you'll be able to taste it over the Internet. blush.gif

I'll be tuned in at 6 as always to hear the new guys report. Rumor has it there is going to be biscuits and gravy on Thursday's show.

Sounds like another good day. Hmmm lake trout eggs and hash browns, I'll be listening in for sure.

Should've saved the eight smelt that came out of the belly of the 6.5. Could've had us a smelt fry. That fish was a FOOTBALL and had no business weighing more than 4 pounds, but darn it was fat. Not only the smelt, but it had vacuumed up chunks of cisco that had come off my jigging lures, which meant it was down there for a fair amount of time ignoring my lures before hitting the tip-up. blush.gif

Oh, and Bruledrifter, I saved the heads from today's catch. They're in the freezer. If you are getting up here again in time for you to pick them up before your project is due, I'll have them for you.

That fish had taken on the look of a perch when they fatten up. Almost had a humped back. Stiffwire, congrats on your first Burntside limit. Glad we could put you on some fish. "Mac the Knife point" shall now takes it's place on our hit list. Can't wait to troll it this spring!

Sniff, Sniff, blub blub........what could have been grin.gif

Glad to hear you guys had a good outing, really wish that me and Jr could have been along. Did end up taking Jr out snowmobiling on both days from home, and watched the Chub lake fishing contest for awhile before hitting the sliding hill for an hour or so.

How much ice did you find this weekend, i imagine she's put on a few inches since the Bash (and more to come this weekend, looks a bit cool)

Never mind.....just saw the other thread smile.gif

Slow weekend for Cashcrews and Capt. Blaine. One smaller trout on a tipup w/shiner, and about a 6 lb. fish lost 3 feet under the hole. And the not-so-elusive eeltrout.

Funny how when you want one, you can't catch one. Twice we pouthunted intentionally and came up empty handed. Chase a trout, catch a pout. Hey wait a minute, that quote's mine boys. I CALL IT NOW! As in "Well you know what Chunky says,". WooooBoy, I'm on a roll tonight! tongue.giftongue.gif

hookset, Dollar is the decent sized island immediately to the north/northeast of Long Island. It's also straight across the bayto the west from the northwest tip of Waters Island.

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      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?
