How did you do???

Recommended Posts

Was on Waconia at 12:01. Tossing raps at the north side of the island found 2 14 inchers around 3:00. Tried slip bobbering with leeches and chubs with no luck too. Looking forward to hearing some success stories! So, how'd you do??

Went out to Sabre Lake and only caught bullheads all night with jigs and minnows...was fishing off of shore and a group of guys came over with waders and walked right across my line and stood right in front of me so I couldnt cast!!!They had no respect whatsoever and stayed there for about two hours...I eventually casted right over them and snagged one in the waders lol...they were really big jerks about it too...this is the bad thing about opener...people like this who have no respect for other people!

Saturday, Hook/Swan, 9 boats, 2 bullheads and 2 crappies. Several hits but no takers.

Sunday, Greenleaf/Erie, marked all kinds of fish but nothing would bite.

My crew boated about 200 Crappies this weekend, from depths of 35 feet to 3 feet of water. Fish ran up to 13".

C&R was the key.

I opened on Winnie for the 29th year. Saturday was a little slow but managed 20 walleye over a 12 hour period. The rain started at around 1 PM and didn't quit until around 8:00 PM.

Lindy rigged for a while with little success. Went to a Northland 1/8 oz. fireball in a firetiger pattern and shiner and hold on. I did speed it up and rip jig for them. This made all the difference in the world.

Sunday I had a nice limit of 15 to 16 3/4 L eyes in 4 1/2 hours with several throw backs in the 18 to 26" range. 6-9 feet along High Banks.
The total for the weekend was 62 eye's using this pattern.

Also, caught a couple dozen perch that actually measured 11 to 12+ inches. It's nice to see some large perch again.

Of course what what a weekend of fishing be like with out the pike cutting off jigs, trying to tie on another and your fingers are so numb you can't hold on to the line.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
