Honest truth for Sat Eve and Sun Morning

Recommended Posts

slotlimit

I and a few friends were staying out of Garrison Sports this weekend. His houses are on Myr Mar. We only caught one walleye in 3 days. Tons of 3inch perch on the camera all over. Friday we fished all over the lake in portables and only one walleye and a perch. Saturday evening we headed over to Kraus flat. we fished some little hump on the east side. we fished the west side of that hump. It didn't have a name on my map. there was only one house within a 100 yards of us and the next closes houses were at least a mile. The fishing only lasted for about a half hour in each the moring and evening. Here's what we caught. 2 12" eyes, 6 keepers 15-19", one 23", one 24" and one 27". One of the portables was fishing the very northern tip and caught nothing. They were about 200 yards away. When we talked to others Sunday morning no one did as well as we did. But I guess to venture out in that weather we deserved it.

How far to the east was this hump? The only hump that I can find on my GPS is about a quarter mile away. Will be heading up wednesday morning and was njust wondering what the hot bait was. Any info would be appreciated.

We were fishing on the west side of Mry Mar. The spot I'm talking about is a flat about 1/4 to 1/2 mile long. It was exactly 1.77 miles from the fishouse we were staying in straight east. I threw the whole tackle box at them for jigging. Caught 90% of the fish on a plain red hook and bobber. Hope that helps. We were also fishing on the west side of that flat. It comes up to 26' on the gps map but I found 24'. We were fishing the top right next to the drop in 26' of water. Hope that helps

Looking forward to hearing the report. I hope you do as well as we did. By the way we fished the NW side of the structure. Some buddies were on the NW tip and caught nothing. I would suggest just south of the NW tip say 100-200 yards on the top edge of the structure.

Nice job Slotlimit! Im heading out there Saturday around noon and staying on the lake until Sunday morning 9-10am. We plan to head out of Garrison Sports, but it might change.

We are planning on fishing perch in the afternoon, but will settle in on top of a flat before dark. It will depepnd on what we see for action.

We usually get some walters on rattle reels with red hooks during the night. Did you use shinners or Fat heads???

We used both but shinners were definately better. Good luck!

Well slot limit I tried out that spot you told me about with minimal success. Got out there at 7:00 wednesday morning and got a 18" and a 16" right away. It was all downhill after that. Fished there all day and caught 3 big fat jumbos in 31' and also one 10" walleye. In the evening I moved back to the shallow and got 1 more little walleye. Thursday morning I headed back out there and got three walleyes between 11 and 13 inches, all of which were released. I don't keep them unless they are at least 15". Also got one more big jumbo. Wish I could find more of them the biggest was 13". During the day I headed out to some other spots to try and find some perch and had no luck. Returned back to the spot at 3:30 and got one more small walleye. Thanks for the info. It wasn't the greatest fishing but at least I got a few for the frying pan. Could've had something to do with this cold weather moving in. I caught all but one of the fish, a jumbo, on a silver 1/8 oz buckshot. Thanks again. I am heading back up on wednesday for the fmers event at Appeldoorns and will let you know if we find a hot spot on that end of the lake. Thanks again.

I don't mind sharing some info if its gonna help some others get a few fish. It's not like it was a hotspot. I spent two full dats out there in my portable and got 2 walleyes and 4 perch.

Just trying to help. Sorry you didn't have as good as luck as we did. You should e-mail me the coordinates and I'll tell you if it was the same spot i was on if it wasn't I'll send you the coordinates. johns2_1 At yahoo (Contact Us Please). It does sound like you caught a couple. I'm sure the weather has something to do with it.

Flick, Go ahead and give it a try. I'm not from there I could care less if everyone and anyone fished that spot. I just gave some facts about my days on the lake. I understand locals wanting to keep there hot spots a secret but why everyone else thinks it's such a big secret is beyond me.

      Hi, I am writing on here to try to find the owner of some fishing gear that was left on East Rush Lake. I found it last Sunday morning and would like to get the gear back to the owner. If you can describe what you lost I'm willing to meet up and return your stuff back to you. I know how much it sucks losing your gear and starting over. Call me if you think it might be your gear.  Travis 651-315-9913

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      I know there's no perfect boat for all rivers and lakes.  But, I've had aluminum jonboats for 60-years with no problems, so far.   My question is....  what type of aluminum boat do you like for most MN lakes?     I like  a 1648 boat, but undecided on the bow type....  Flat bottom, modified. V,  or Deep V?   What do you like?     Thanks for your help.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.
