Lower Manitou Fishing Report

6 posts in this topic

With the prolonged colder weather the trout fishing has been outstanding since ice out, they are still up and we are catching them trolling white tube, #5 silver mepps, and various colored rapalas.

The bass fishing has really picked up this past week and they are starting to make some beds in the warmer bays.

The pike are a bit behind, but we are getting some good reports of larger ones being caught.

The lake is up about 1.5 feet from spring level and slowly rising, once the rain slows and things start to warm, we should start getting into our summer patterns.

If anyone has any questions about the area, just let me know.

Thanks,

Matt

Hey Outfitter17,

Love those new Lund Outfitter 1750's you have. Saw one in the Alonghill portage. Any tips on how I could snag one? I really wanted to jump in and check it out, but I controlled myself. Hope everything is OK at Pipestone.

We were catching some really nice Brownies a couple of weeks ago.

The guests really like the new outfitters with the 50 hondas, it was a big step up from the ssv 16's. I have 12 of them and the only problem now is the dock space. We are building a new 60' dock with T on the end in the next couple of weeks, this should solve our dock issues.

You can find them at pinewoodsports.com

They are a resort made boat, so you won't find them in the normal lund brochure. They have a smaller brochure with about 10 boats made for resorts not offered to the public. That being said pinewood will sell the outfitters to anyone, since they carry a few on their lot.

Have you guys been catching any fish from shore? I've been reading a few reports about the trout not really being too shallow this year. Is this contributed to a later baitfish spawn? I figured, we would have got a few more fish last weekend in the usual spots but it was kinda slow.

The trout are very scattered with the strange sring and cooler than normal water temps. We have guys catching them deep and a kid caught one yesterday in 4 feet of water fishing for bass?

Thing will straighten out soon and we will get back to normal.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture.
