Bald Eagle Reports??

4 posts in this topic

Usually get out to Baldy 8-10 times by now this time of year but haven't due to some work stuff. Anyone with any recent reports of the musky bite out there? I know the lake very well, just looking for reports of catches, not your secret spots.

Hey JIGGIN'

If you're familiar with the lake in general you have a leg up. Fish on BE and the metro in general have been spotty at best. Weather conditions like tonight have been a factor. If you're somewhat in the know, you'll do as well as the rest of us.

Fish are relating to the deeper weedlines, but under the right conditions will be on the spots you're likely familiar with. I'd say go and do your "milk run" of known areas and look to deeper weedlines secondary, especially those close to deeper water. If you're thinkin' of the edges I'm thinkin' you'll have a good chance. Edges nearby Cigar Island come to mind.....

Was out after the storm on Thursday and moved no fish. Water is startiung to get greened up pretty good. FYI - DNR has a sign saying the access will be closed on the 19th for a water ski show.

I fish it a lot and our boat has gotten a few fish this year - lost and missed our share as well. I haven't found them shallow yet. Cjac is right on - all the fish but one have been off the weedlines. That said, I got sick of fighting the wind yesterday and tried trolling for a while and didn't hardly mark any baitfish - maybe with the wind I should have been up in the jungle. Normally I love this lake for topwaters - this year jerbaits have been better producers.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
