Are you sure it wasn't a bullhead?  Can be mistaken sometimes for a cat fish.  I have never heard of a catfish in Nebags or any other nearby lakes for that matter.  Catfish prefer a system that has river characteristics including but not limited to: current, etc..  I'm willing to bet it was a yellow bullhead.  I have caught a few over the years out there.  Not a common catch.  Also have caught sucker as well, again not common though.  Glad to hear the bite is turning on for you.

Might have been a bullhead. Never caught one of those before either.  Had some nasty whiskers. Also had some bite marks on it. It was 12-14 inches. I'm guessing a pretty good sized northern was after it.

Gonna be up again this weekend. That bullhead had some big bite marks on it.  20 minutes prior, got broke off by a big fish. Guessing there's a big nord patrolling out there.  

 

This lake has some great smallie fishing!

I haven't been up in a couple of weeks, but the smallies were great.

 

im heading up in two weeks too.  I like going out a bit before sunrise and throw plastics in shallow this time of year.  Starting at the lighthouse, and work north and east.  Also, like going to where the lake dumps in nebag creek early with top water for nords...about an hour after sunrise.

 

Good luck.

Well, I didn't have any results anywhere close to that... we had a good time at the cabin we stayed at (got home Saturday), but fishing was very tough... if we end up going up there again next year I'll be in touch...

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
