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???

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.

      I have a couple Garmins and I like them a lot, especially the new touchscreen.
    • smurfy
      So any idea how far along the lakes are to opening up. Headed that way first weekend of May.

      Volk, a community prevention specialist for the state Department of Human Services and also a member of the Lincoln city council, asked to put to rest a rumor that he snagged the fish. He hooked the fish in the mouth, he said, and it wrapped itself in line as it fought. The mouth hook was certified by Game and Fish, Volk said. A snagged fish would not count as a record.
    • eyeguy 54
      where are these videos? Game and fish said not snagged. hmmmm.

      Cube the breast meat, and marinate it in buttermilk overnight, then dredge it in whatever you use to fry fish, and pan fry it until golden brown.  I like to use peanut oil, because you can get it really hot. You only need a half inch or so of oil in the pan, they fry up quickly. Very good, and I have tried it many ways. You could trim out the dark meat, and do it the same way.
    • huntnfish
      Definitely a huge fish. I don’t know if it was snagged or not but there are a couple videos that look like a hook being removed from the back of the fish. Kind of tough to tell for sure from the videos though. If you go to the ND game and fish Facebook page you can find them.

      Warm temperatures and dry conditions mean increased wildfire risk, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will restrict open burning in the following counties effective immediately: Anoka, Benton, Chisago, Douglas, Grant, Hennepin, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Pope, Ramsey, Sherburne, Stearns, Stevens, Todd, Traverse, Washington, and Wright.  The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste in these counties until restrictions are lifted. “Escaped debris burns are the number one cause of wildfires, so that’s why we issue these restrictions,” said Casey McCoy, DNR fire prevention supervisor. “They really work—we’ve reduced wildfires by nearly a third since we started spring burning restrictions in 2001.” McCoy encourages residents to use alternatives to burning, such as composting, chipping, or taking brush to a collection site. For information on how to compost yard debris, visit the DNR’s guide to composting yard debris. People who burn debris will be held financially responsible if their fire escapes and burns other property. Burning restrictions will be adjusted, including extension of restrictions to additional counties, as conditions change. For information and daily updates on current fire risk and open burning restrictions, visit the Minnesota DNR website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Flying a drone can be a lot of fun—but it can be downright dangerous during a wildfire, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Most people wouldn’t dream of driving their car in front of a fire engine that’s responding to a fire,” said Casey McCoy, the DNR’s fire prevention supervisor. “Flying your drone during a wildfire is just as reckless: we have to ground our planes until the drone gets out of the way, and that slows down our ability to fight the fire.” This happened last year during a wildfire in Little Falls: DNR pilots had to land firefighting helicopters because a drone was buzzing overhead. According to McCoy, “interfering with fire operations in this way is dangerous for our aircraft, firefighters on the ground, and the general public.” The reason drones pose such a problem is because they fly at roughly the same altitude as wildfire suppression aircraft. Even a small drone can cause a fire-fighting helicopter to crash if the drone makes contact with the aircraft. Flying a drone over a wildfire isn’t just dangerous, it’s illegal: Federal law prohibits interfering with firefighting operations, and that includes flying a drone over a wildfire. To protect firefighting aircraft, temporary flight restrictions may extend over a 5-mile radius of a wildfire. Even if temporary flight restrictions are not in place, people will be penalized if their drone is caught near a wildfire. Be fire wise and fire safe. No photo or video is worth the risk. Drop the drone near all wildfires. For more information about drones and wildfires, log onto the National Interagency Fire Center. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
