Fishing Anyone? Saturday 2/18

Recommended Posts

I’m looking to hit the ice this Saturday for a good portion of the morning. I’ve got an open hole in my shack as of now. I want to fish from about 6am – 1ish or so. Anybody interested in joining me?

It would be nice to get a group of us all going to the same area. We could work together to track down some fish. If you’d like to meet-up and wrestle up some fish together, let me know.

I would like to give Chesterwoods a try, but I’ve never fished there before. I also like to hit the Zumbro, but I heard it was a race track last weekend with all the vehicle traffic. As of now, I’m leaning towards Chesterwoods, but nothings set in stone.

Also, does anybody know how I can get my hands on a season pass for Chester? I understand its $20-$25. Can I get this online, or by calling somebody?

You can fill out the form for the pass at Chesterwoods and they will mail it to you. I believe you can use a portion of the form as your pass until the pass arrives.

I just sent you an email. Chester woods sounds like a plan. Looks like it will be pretty frosty. So if you still have a hole avaiable in your ice house. Count me in.

I've never fished CW so I won't be much help in knowing where the fish are.

Any other recent reports from the area after this weather hit? We're debating whether its worth it or not to hit Chester tomorrow?

Did you go out to Chester?

We were out there on Friday, closer to the dam. 1 bass is all. Saw a few fish.

      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
