you can join the thundering herd on poinsett otherwise there are lots of other good quality lakes in the brookings area. I haven't been out much in the last couple weekends with the cold fronts and extreme cold but that should change this weekend.

I did manage to get out and fish on monday but it was slow but managed some 9" gills.

good luck and be safe despite the cold temps last two weeks lots of sketchy ice in areas yet

btw welcome to HSO

Anyone have reports or been out around Brookings area lately?  I know Poinsett is still putting out dink eyes and the  smallie bite has been ok. I still haven’t  patterned the perch.

 

looks like lots of people on Albert lately but havent heard if they are catching much.

 

we are camping up at Oakwood for a few days on Friday for Father’s Day weekend. Will try to hit a few different lakes in the area and hopefully figure the fish out.

Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.

 

Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.

    • yep, expensive because they are hard to find. I just refill the one pounders. easy and cheap. 
    • Why are the 5 lb. propane tanks so expensive and hard to find. I've looked online for them and they are usually about $60. 20# tanks are about $40 full. Wanting to possibly stop using the 1lb. tanks for my buddy heater and go with a 5lb. tank that will last longer. Oh, and I'm on foot 100% of the time. 
    • I was using a Marcum Showdown 5.6 and loved it. Then my teenage son started fishing with me and he has taken over the Showdown. So, I bought the ice pack for my Lowrance Elite-5 from my boat. It's OK but I much prefer the Showdown.  The Elite-5 will act up at times and it really ticks me off. Now I'm looking for a Showdown for myself again. 
    • Anyone have the latest and greatest on Morson area ice conditions?  Pretty early yet, but it’s been awfully chilly out there.   Thanks!  
    • I went ahead and bought a tag since the FA season was going pretty slow in camp.  Then bang, bang, bang, bang... just like that we all have enough venison...   My season might just boil down to a few walks in the woods, checking things out that I’ve been curious about.  Just wouldn’t feel right not carrying my smoke stick with even though I probably won’t use it.   Premature tag purchase. 🤦‍♂️
    • Dang looks nice......I'm jelly.
    • Dave coming to get his grill off his truck and PurpleFloyed off his a$$!  😄    
    • I would need a forklift to get my a$$ off the picnic table after eating all those ribs.   😂
    • Dave, you can grill standing in the back of your truck!  We just have to have a pellet grill in the mix after we have heard so many wonderful things about them! Other then they weight a ton! 😄   Glad to see your back, you seemed to have gone to He!! for a while in that other thread over there!  😯 
    • I would need a forklift to get my Louisiana smoker in and out of the back of my truck.  I'll be happy to pay the $5.00 though........
