5/17 Report

Recommended Posts

I made it over to the big lake today for the first time this season. I couldn't sleep very well last night because of a "hot" report from a guy that does some guiding with us. We got on the water at 8:30 ish and fished until 4:00 p.m.. Great day, fishing was O.K.. We caught 12 or 13 and kept 7. The 5 or 6 that went back were 22-27 inchers, not many lakes around where you can do that and still feel like it was just an O.K. outing. The guy that had me so hyped last night stopped by today and said it was much slower, most likely because of the 180 degree wind switch. Lindy's and leeches caught them all and we fished the shore break in 18-24 feet. I think I will be back at them again tomorrow.

Fished Lakeside Reef on the East Side today (northern-most hump and southern-most hump)and both of us got our slot limits between 8:30 and 2:30, plus (3) 12" perch. We didn't catch a single throwback, every fish was in the slot and they were all 17, 18 or 19 inches. Fifteen feet of water, with slip bobbers and leeches (plain hook outfished chartreuse jighead 6-2).

Fished Fischer's yeasterday. Got kind of a late start and didn't get fishing until 8:00 am. We got two there and moved to the Sand around 10:30. We probably saw a total of 10 fish caught at Fischer's.

Fished near Carlsona, 19-24 ft with 7-8 ft snells, either a plain red hook, or red hook with a glow bead. Ended up keeping 8 fish for 3 people. 16-19" with most being 18-19.

Threw back 3 one 23 / 22 1/2 & a 21. Wish the wind would have kicked in just a little more. It picked up a little more from 3-4:30, seemed to "trigger" the fish. A good day just to be out.

Looking to head out again next week.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
