Weekend plans!

15 posts in this topic

Ok, what are you all up to?

My weekend starts tomorrow, heading to the Big Pond for thurs/fri then back in the cities for the rest of the weekend. Plan on fishing for a majority of it.

Let's see if this monster curly sue with a walleye body and huge white tail turns anyone on!!!

Jeff -

Good luck on the pond. I'm in town - took Monday and Tuesday next week off as well so depending on my real boss and Mother Nature maybe you want to do a morning shot before work like last week.

Take care - erik

Not fishing this weekend. Only got out for a few hours on Monday morning. Starting next week I will be hitting it hard for rest of the year.

Jredig,

Stay south and work anything green you can find. Simple as that. Twin Bays, Wahkon, Cove, Sunset, etc. Run East over to Vineland too, check out the cabbage fields. Slow roll the spinnerbaits and the Dawgs. Thre is a misnomer that Mille fish don't eat in June....wrong.

Me........going cattin' tomorrow night! Pretty excited, should be fun. Weekend may be up to the family cabin where the northerns were active last weekend. If not, TC area tigers are on the bill.

Good luck to all.

Plans to hit Miltona this weekend, along with Alexander. Moved a couple of big fish on Alex. Weeds should be starting to come into their own on Miltona and with the warm weather I hope the Muskies are hungry!!

Hey Chris, i'll be mostly in Vineland as I'm staying at the cabin there, we'll see how the wind is for my little dingy....that'll dictate where i'm fishing.

Good luck everyone!

Two buddies coming up... we are going to try our luck at some SW metro musky/pike action. I hope the weather is fishable... I don't mind the clouds and sprinkles, but the high wind and lightning aren't cool. I'll let you know how we do.

Let's see, before the 4th of July there is a trailer to repair, a pair of 20 amp circuits to wire in the cabin, 4 upstairs walls to insulate, even more walls upstairs to sheetrock, and almost as much surface to put a ceiling up on, as well as getting the plumbing in for the upstairs bathroom. I might get to go fishing sometime...

18 hrs on tonka... three tiny pike, two tiny bass, and one 25" musky. Obviously, I am looking in the wrong spots.

Well, Mille Lacs was all about pike. Caught 5 near 40 inches and a bunch more smaller. I moved probably 30+ muskies too, only 1 was REALLY on the bait, the rest were really REALLY lazy follows. Spent most of my time out around Spirit Island and south of there on the breaks. Saw the biggest muskie to date, just a monster that followed 2-3 times but wouldn't bite. In a whole different class than anything i've seen or caught up to this point.

Came home to the metro Saturday morning, went out Saturday night from 7pm to 10pm and caught 1 and had another follow. Went out again this morning and caught a 46-47 within an hour of being out, had follows from 4-5 more, but all were behind my dad's lures and he didn't exactly play them well as it was his second time muskie fishing. Two ate the lure and he missed the hook set right at the boat....DOH!!!

Water temps anywhere from 72-78 down here, fish are really going now. Mille Lacs was around 66-67 and the fish are certainly there but seem very cautious or just not hungry/super active yet.

Hope everyone else is having a great weekend still! Let's hear how everyone else did! smile

Just got back from LOW/Sabaskong, fished from 6/25 to 6/28. Took a day to figure out the pattern but ended up with 5 boated and couple long lined realeased for 2 guys. Saw quite a few more, but no biggies. Biggest fish of the trip was a fat 46". All fish were in less than 8 fow in thick emerging cabbage. Spinnerbaits caught all the fish. Checked by the Miniisty on Sat and it sounded like we were doing better than most. The 46" still had eggs in her. Very few fish on the rocks yet. Wallyes are still mostly on the jig/minnow bite, the lake is a good 2 weeks behind. Mayflies hatched out on 6/25 in hordes, just clouds above the islands and crunch with every step. Great trip

    •   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. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
