BIG DIESEL

Camoman and I decided to head over to French on saturday afternoon for a change of scenary. Got to Shieldsville to pick up bait and the guy there told us that people were hammering large pannies on the south shore of Mazaska.

Needless to say our plans of going to French changed and we figured might as well try it out on Mazaska. Well, we fished from about 5' to 20' in about 6 or 7 different spots and caught one 8" walleye and 3 4" bluegills. We were marking fish all over but couldnt get them to bite on pastic, waxies, or minnows. Pretty slow afternoon.

Fished from about 3-6pm. THere was a solid good 18" of ice everywhere. We took the 4-wheeler out but truck travel I think would be fine. There was one car out near us driving around no problem.

This might have been the last trip for on the ice but at least we got out one more time...

Nice to see the Mazaska Curse is still on...that lake is one of the reasons I've been fishing on Duck and Washington this past winter. I'm tired of looking at lines on the FL-8 and wondering what I was doing wrong.

I gave it a try about ten days ago instead of driving west. Three sunfish--one keeper and two that were a little bigger than a silver dollar--after seeing fish for two hours. I'm beginning to believe that a lot of those marks a recent year class fish.

Last summer I was there a few times and I saw massive clouds of minnows. I have fished that lake all my life and have never seen anything like it. I'm no expert, but I used it as an excuse for catching nothing that day grin.gif

Needless to say, our group of guys will not be returning there for a while - we have been skunked 3 times this year and have fished in different spots with no luck. We will put it on the calender for 2008 and hopefully they will have grown a little.

Went out for about 5 hours on Sunday afternoon. Moved all around the south side of the lake. Only caught one small Sunny and one small Crappie. Marked lots and threw everything I had at them but no response. Have caught nice fish there in the past. But recently have had poor luck to say the least.

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️
