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

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
