Henn. Island 1/28

Recommended Posts


Fished in 22' on the NW side of the island and caught 3 walleyes and keep one. About 15 perch and kept two. Saw fish on the camera but couldn't entice the bite. All walleyes caught on bottom with grubs and small jigs. Lot of fishing and not a lot of catching, very cold and windy. Found many people stuck in the drifts Sat night on Mac's Twin Bay road. Helped to push out one truck that was using a Time Mag. for added traction, problem was he had it under the front wheel of a two wheel drive vehicle. Not sure but I think some alcohal was involved, Cause the guy preceeded to go after another truck that didn't help him and start a fight with a GUY THE SIZE OF ANDRE THE GIANT. Always good time on Mille Lacs.

Went fishing in front of Brandts, out about 1 1/2 mi. then west. 3 nice eaters between 16" and 20". One 24 1/2", Nice chubby fish, released. 5 so so perch. Took the Fearless Ford Focus out, left the lake around 6 pm. Busted through a couple drifts, alternater and snow don't mix. lights dimmed for a short time, steered away from drifts after that. Did,nt know the wind would blow that hard that afternoon. Bringing the 4x4 Chev from now on!!

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
