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.

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
