where to catch eel pout

Recommended Posts

Ya Hey Der

Goin fishin has finally gone of the deep end. He finally cooked himself some eel pout and believes it may be the best fish he has ever eaten. If you know goin fishin, that is a lot of fish that he has tried. Anyway, it sounds like our March Perch outing may now turn into a March Pout outing. If anyone can direct us to an area with an abundance of pout, we'd really appreciate it. I am asking because he ate all the pout before I could get any and I'd like to try some.

Thanks!

OK, I think you may be a little crazy, but here is the spot.

Go out of Hunters Point and out to Sly's. (short distance)

Caught seven 3 week-ends ago on the transition in about 20 ft. of water. We were using orange glow hooks with a half of a fat head hooked through the lips. Position so the minnow body is just touching the bottom or a boulder. Best time was about 3:00am - 7:00am.

`

Good luck and good eating!

I will agree with you on that one!! Last year we were out on banana reef. Real close to slys. We put the camera down and placed the minnow so it was just barely touching the bottom on one line. We were trying to do somthing different for walleyes. We caught about 15 of them between 7pm and 3am. The last one was so (Contact Us Please) big it broke the fire line when we tried to pull it out. I bet you it ran a good seven eight pounds!! I think the key is on the bottom and boulders.

i havent caught a decent pout on mille lacs in a long time. however, we have caught some monsters on winnie. some of them easliy go 8 or 9 pounds. different colored fish up there. they look more like a leopard with all of the markings and lighter colored skin.

God I wish it wasn't so, but I am hooked on those eel pout!!

I think I am going to have to check myself into the psych department. So the best time to fish will be night time I guess. Thanks for the info guys.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
