shore fishing tonight?

9 posts in this topic

I'm heading out tonight but not to the river. I'll be hitting a local lake in search of some Channels. I have my bullies cut up, good and bloody, hoping to have some luck!

Ya I had my first full family fishing night ( Mom Dad and boy ) out on the river. We went down to black dog and well ya nothing like always when you go down there. I didn't want to take them out to the other spots that are further down stream. Fear of the baby not being cooperative, and the old lady not wanting to deal with a screaming baby aside the river. Needless to say the night went off without a hitch, it was awesome.

I'll be out in the boat tonight on pool 2. Looks like the temps have come up 11 degrees since I was out last friday!! She should be pushing 68 by the time I get out there. Hopefully the big girls will be putting on the feed bag. Anyone else been getting walleyes on cut bait lately? We managed 4 of 'em last week with the biggest being 26 inches. Just curious. Wish me fish...

I was out at the CR dam this week and the channels were biting one after another for hours. All smaller eater size though. Kept me busy for sure.

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting.
