BEST FISHING EVER!!!! 3/17

Recommended Posts

crappeyeslayer

OK, I admit that the fishing was not spectacular but the weather could not be beat!! After going through 2 tanks of auger gas we finally found a few fish! A buddy and I ended up with 12 beautiful slabs and countless eyes! I did manage to catch a 39" pike on my ultralight w/6lb test line... after a half hour fight! What a blast though! grin.gif But the weather is what really made the fishing so enjoyable. It was warm smile.gif sunny grin.gif and there was barely a breath of wind! You dont get many days like that on Red!!

Agreed the weather was fantastic! For 3 guys we caught only 7 crappies but we didn't fish sunday. Moved around on saturday and didn't catch a crappie,but came back to base camp and caught 2 crappies later saturday night. Once again the weather was awesome!

Hey Slayer,

Congrats on your hard work paying off. Any tips on how you finally found the crappies after all that drilling? Depth? I'm heading up Wednesday and plan to search like you did...

I was out about 6 miles in 13 FOW. Just look for the rough ice and start drillin', when the water in the whole comes up nice and brown and dirty thats when you know that there should be fish in the area! grin.gif I only fish a hole 10 min and then move on, if the fish are there you will mark em' or get a hit! Search on and good luck!

      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

      Congrats jfitz! I was in boat 85 in the big tiller Lund right behind you guys leaving the harbor. Our nice fish we had going completely disappeared on us.

      I hope you and your dad don’t mind passing along the story of your weekend. It’s a great story and defies conventional wisdom. Congratulations! The best fishermen have skill, intuition, and a little luck on their side.

      Welcome to to Fishing Minnesota, TheEyesofanAngler. My favorite lake for bass in our area is definitely Clearwater. It takes a bit to learn the lake, but the rewards are more than worth it.  Littlerock also holds some very nice Largemouth with a few bonus smallies mixed in... I know you said lakes and ponds, but the Mississippi here in town and  the sections above the Sartell and Blanchard dams all are exelent smallmouth fisheries.

      Was it a G.Loomis Conquest Mag Bass rod with a Shimano® Calcutta Conquest reel on it?  That would be mine!

      I have snorkeled on head o lakes (off our beach) and it is usually ok.   Not Hawaii clear but 5 to 10 feet visibility....  OK, maybe 10 is a stretch, but pretty good.
