Saturday Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

skunked_again

Well it was definitely cold! Fishing was slow for me most of the day, with only one nice perch being caught. Did manage 3 nice walleye from 15-18 inches however from 5 to 6 pm. I was fishing on the flats; lots of fish just few takers. Very few perch from what I'm used to out there. How did everyone else do?

Just returned this am, ran outta LP! Shoot! We had what I would say was a successful trip. Many walleye's of all different lengths, some cigar sized to 1 that was 28 being the largest. Only a few perch though as was stated earlier. Didnt move around at all yesterday in the wind, just stuck to a north end mud flat and had great luck! The bite was real sporadic at times, with most action taking place after dark. Although we did catch some eyes earlier in the morning from about 6-8.

spent the day on the south side and got 4 eyes 14-19 inches and 2 perch missed a lot of fish the eye bite was all finess plain red hook and split shot jigging it off the bottom and dropping it ever so slow then just the slightest bite from the fish. all and all it was a good outting a bit blustery though.

Fished out of the west side Saturday. Fished Curly's Flat and was skunked!! Drilled lot's of holes in very windy conditions. Man did that suck! Anyway's I have fished the big pond many times and never have I been skunked. Marked lots of fish and threw everything but the kitchen sink at them but no takers. Finally gave up at 1:00 pm after fishing for 6 hours without a bite! confused.gif

I had a really nice walleye bite early Sunday morning when the moon came out. The rattle reels were ringing from 1-2 AM and then from 3-5 AM. The wind stopped, the sky cleared, and the moon was shining and I think that turned them on.

I was out from Isle this weekend with in a house from Dickies, 7 guys and 3 fish. We marked alot of small perch right on the bottom and got 2 of them to bite. We also got one slimy 'pout on a rattlewheel at 5:30 saturday morning. Not much for fishing, but fun none the less.

We were out of Hunters on yesterday and when the perch were down there they required little coaxing and actually were really agressive. The walleyes on the other hand were a different story. Caught two small ones around noon and then the vex went out so I didn't fish for the prime time bite. confused.gif

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨

      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?

      Thanks for the water temps. Unfortunately my depth finder temp gauge was correct.
