Fishing report

Recommended Posts

Kyle Sandberg

Well, here is what I can tell you.

My dad is fishin up on Red with a group of his 8 buddies(not me frown.gif) and I think they got up there aroun noon(lines in the water) and by 4:30 he had a couple of nice walleyes(had to throw back) and 8 gargantuine crappies. Another guy in the group caught 15 crappies. I think the total for the few hours was about 40 crappie and a handful of walleye, not knowing how many were keepers. So far, sounds like a great time and makes me wish I could go.

OK, so my dad finally got back and I almost died listening to the fishing report. As posted above, he had those 8 crappies and finished out with his limit after a little mishap. As the story goes, he had about 5 crappies in a 5 gallon bucket and was moving it around when he splipped and bloop, bloop, bloop, there goes three crappies. Really didn't matter since he was on top of 'em but still a hard time seeing 45 inches of crappies falling down the hole. The group of 8 he was fishing with ended up catching 54 crappies that day, all of them almost 15" +/- .25" and all weighing one pound nine ounces. They were staying at bear paw and went to their cleaning station with several 5 gallon buckets full of crappies and everyone there was wide eyed, jaw hanging open. Seems that there wasn't that much luck that day(Friday). The rest of the weekend was a little slower due to the colder weather and the laid back feeling after almost limiting out for the whole group. Each guy in the group ended up taking their fish and had a nice meal of walleyes on shore.

Good Fishing

Figured I'd throw in my report: My dad and I made the trip up with the portables, started fishing around 9am on Thursday(1-25) Wasn't looking good as we moved 4 to 5 times and had 2 slot eyes and a perch to show for it. Around 2pm, I went outside to drill a few holes and jump around and bam! As soon as I started the auger dad had 2 crappies flopping in the pail. I go out to check the holes I drilled, and the Craps are waiting down there for me! Even with the shakes I pulled 2 out more. We caught 7 in that half hour after I drilled. We Fished until 630 and ended up with 14 crappies, all around 13.5-14.5". Caught 7 or 8 eyes, only 1 keeper 16.75" and a handful of 10" perch that were let go. On Saturday, we fished from 630a- 1230p, in that same area. And man was it slow. Caught 3 crappies 6 or 7 eyes with 1 more 16.75" keeper and some more perch. Our 2 day totals were 17 crappies, 12-14 eyes and about 10 perch. Not bad, but the previous week me and buddy had caught 60 eyes and 32 crappies in 2.5 days. Oh well, i cant wait to get back up there. We were fishing out of Hillmans.

Friday actually was a good day of fishing for my group out of Hillmans....4 of us drove up and were on the lake by 9:30am by 11:30 we had maybe 15 crappies......that is when the wind picked up and the fishing slowed somewhat.....we slowed down hole hopping I should say but by 5 o'clock 2 guys were leaving with 15 crappies and a couple walleyes. I ended the day at 8 with 9 crappies and my other bud had 5. We met some friends in a hard house that came up on Thurs and they only had 5 crappies and didn't move an inch both days.......Sat with the wind and the temps being the way they were and I had 9 crappies I decided to cut my weekend short and head home without fishing Saturday at all......Friday was the day to be fishing but I heard some good reports from a few guys that did well on Saturday too.......Good Luck

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.

      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.
