LQP Update

Recommended Posts

outfishedagain

Was on LQP last night. The bite has slowed way down. We only had one 15"er and snagged about a 20 lb. carp. Water very dirty, thanks to the wind. We fished north of the Milan bridge, did see two other walleyes caught off the bridge.

hows the water level on lqp? two weeks ago when i drove through big stone refuge it looked like there was a lot of water still needing to make its way on through.

Heard about 22+ lbs won, some zero'd, 1 - 4 fish for some, with some teams coming in w/6. Biggest fish I believe was about 9 lbs. Was out there this week end trying to stay out of their way & fishing area where no tourney boats were. Took pictures of a 29 1/2" that any of the boats would have liked but not another boat within a mile. Did see a couple nice 4-5 lber's caught on the north end.

The twin bridges area looked like a boat dealership. Pretty close hand to hand combat with only the "lucky" ones getting fish.

Sunday morning was cold & breezy.

Wow i haven't fished LQP for 4 years now due to the fishing pressure it receives. How has it been hitting? Last time I came around there it was freezing cold with 20 mph winds, no fish were present I just thought that fish were never in there anymore due to fishing pressure. Looks like some of you guys have been catching a few but it's still been slow eh? Thinking about coming back this year and giving it a shot. Been fishing around in the Central MN area for eyes on the Rum and Sauk River doing fairly well. Did manage to catch a MONSTER Eye about 29-30 inches on Sauk but it got away no net hehe its okay that thing would have been on the wall if i decided to keep it. But yes let me know how the fishing has been for the past couple of years. The Lake itself and the dam thanks guys!

I see you said you had been fishing the Rum River... How did you do as far as getting some walleyes goes?? I try the Rum all the time for walleyes, but it seems that its few and far between, still enjoy it though, not many people target eyes' in the Rum!!

Eh the walleyes on the Rum are very slow. For some odd reason maybe I'm not using the right bait. But everytime i've gone out there maybe just 3-4 Walleyes a day, they are in there just dont really know what they are hitting on. Been throwing out mimic minnows (firetiger, perch, bluegill, minnow, goldenshiners), Gum drops tipped with leeches and minnows, etc..... they all produce but its once in a while the eyes will hit it. I'm kind of stumped on the eyes on the Rum but everywhere else seems kind of less hard you can say. And yeah, there isn't a lot of fishing pressure on the Rum for walleyes which i find is odd. As for LQP looks like no one is giving feedback? the fish must be below normal levels this time around too eh? gaaaah fishing pressure sucks anyways yup.

Yeah thats my experience on the Rum... Never a consistant walleye bite on anything... As far as LQP, no one really ever talks on here about it, got my 'eyes out there last weekend for opener and hit the rocks the day after and gotta a few, I know the Milan bridge is slowing down, but I'm thinking I'll be out there over Memorial so I'll see how it goes!

Fished sunday 10 till 8:30 and picked up a few walleyes and a couple of white bass but couldn't find any crappies on the bars and was wondering with the high water they might be going into the brush to spawn, wonder if the water is warm enough yet to spawn?

Ahhh so how high is the water level? I mean we've been getting some pretty odd weather raining, cold, warm, cold, rain... etc.... This is all making the fish act weird lately. And im sure with the rain that has come through the water level stayed the same probably? Hmmm if all goes well maybe i'll come there over this weekend and give it a shot. Wiether i catch any fish or not.... hey oh well im enjoying it.

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.
    • delcecchi
      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
