fishing on Gervais

weeds

A little help? I am thinking of going after walleyes on Gervais. I've only been out there once(before opener)and could really only identify one piece of "classic" structure. Are they up in the weeds? What do they like to eat?

I would look for fish near the steep dropoffs around the whole lake, especially by the creek. The main lake point and inside turns of that point are also good areas. The lake has a healthy perch population. Id bet that is what the walleyes target mostly.

I dont fish 'eyes much but when I have I didnt get much or any size from Gervais.

Any size to the perch?

Many are bigger than average for the metro but still not big enough (my opinion) and not many of them to get a meal. You may run across some 9"ers.

The weeds make it almost impossible to fish right now.

Good thoughts... Really? Too weedy even in the main basin there? Thanks TurnUp, DNR reports average #'s and size (grain of salt) so I fugured i'd give it a shot. Thought it might not get many people going after the eyes. Looks like they stock it pretty good and the forage is there (I was hoping they were maybe hiding up in the weeds). Thanks Fellas

Can a person even get into Gervais from the access? It was pretty low last year.

Ive caught a fair amount of walleys in the weeds, mostly the flats on the north side, but the fish were small. As far as the launch its a good deep launch. but doesnt have a dock. The only thing that would be affected by water levels is the channels between the lakes. Be careful I tore up a prop last year by a rock under the bridge heading into Gervais.

That's what I meant. How is it going under the bridge from the access into Gervais?

I was out about three weeks ago and got through fine trimmed up. Plenty of boats were getting throught that day. I even got through the northernmost channel. 1750 crestliner fishhawk. I plan on trying again this week. I'll report any results.

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!
