3/29 Pool 2 Report

Recommended Posts

We unloaded at Lilydale ramp last night and fished from 4-7:15. A lightning show and some rain took us off the water a bit earlier than we wanted. We caught 6-8 eyes with the biggest being 15" We also boated 1 channel that went something like 6-7lbs.

Jig and minnow took most of our fish with only 1 coming on a ringworm plastic. Most of our fish were caught in 15-20FOW and during the daylight. We did see one fish that was about 3lbs, but that was the biggest we saw caught.

Might give it a go again on Sunday if the weather permits.

Thanks for the postings Tyler. I was down checking out the Lilydale ramp today and there were sure a lot of trees going by. The Army Corps web site has it up 2.5 ft in the last 3 days. The water I saw was very stained. Anyone care to share successful stratedies? I did see 2 boats come fishless! I'll be there this week for the first time. Same old story, trying to avoid the crowds.

See you on the River...

Nice to meet you tonight LuckBites,

We never even caught a single fish tonight. The water was dirty and fast. The rain was cold. We fished from 4:30-7:30. Snagged 1 small channed cat and that was it. Tough night

Tyler, I believe I met you down at the ramp while you were meeting up with the crew. We had about the same results that night. 5 fish on jig and minnow and 2 on ringies the biggest was about 20" Also caught a quillback. First one I have ever caught so that was the best part!

Went down friday with the girlfriend and we olny caught 3 eyes and missed one nicer one at the boat. The river was up about 2 feet then and it has to be up about 5 feet now from last wendsday so that area may not be the best choice for a bit. Anyhow good to hear you guys got into a few also!

Yes, nice to meet you as well. I saw you guys out there and I did see you guys boating a good number of fish. I'm sure I saw you hit 3-4 yourself and then the older gentleman got ahold of a decent looking fish. I'd like to get back out there on Thursday, but the weather is looking crappy. Keep in touch ratherbefishn

Let us know how ya do. I will be south in the backwaters the next week or so but will be back that way once the water comes back down a bit. Olny a couple weeks away from LOW !

FYI - The log jam @ Lilydale ramp is on it's way to New Orleans. Hopefully it crest this weekend. With all these lake open now it shouldn't be a problem finding alternative until the river is back down.

Good luck if you get out. The MN is expected to crest Sun...

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
