Lac Seul - Chamberlain Narrows

Recommended Posts

Headed up the 3rd week of June to Chamberlain Narrows.  I think this will be my 8th trip up there, but I haven't been up there the last 2 summers.  Anyone else going up there this year?

We're heading up to the southern end near Deception Bay next week. I know we won't be heading that far north. May take a run up to the Grassy Bay area though.

Good luck!  Give us a report when you get back.

We fish mostly in the Lost Lake area. The morning bite was quite a bit slower than we have grown to anticipate. Some pick up in activity around noon and then much better in the evening in current. Friday, I took my fishing partner up to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm - 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes. Every one was between 15" - 17". Nothing larger or smaller. Saturday evening we found the bite slowed a bit (only boated about 100 walleyes in the same time period) but they ran slightly larger with most running in the slot. 

 

Crooked narrows (west of Deception Bay) was productive, especially in the evening. 

 

Keewatin Bay produced some nice eyes on Thursday with many falling in between 25" - 28". Our biggest of the week was 28.25".

 

One boat made a run up to Grassy Bay and did well. He also stopped at Devil's Elbow and found it to be productive. Caught one musky there too.

 

Caught quite a few northern pike in the 31" - 34" range. 

 

With the slower morning bite, this was the first time in the 20 years we've been going that we did not run out of bait. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighbor that didn't have any. So end tally was that we fed out 170 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches with 10 guys.

We got back from our trip to the Chamberlain Narrows area a couple days ago. The fishing for our group was great, but we heard many other groups were not having a lot of success.  The walleyes were shallower than I would have guessed. Even with the clear blue sky, hot sunny days and lack of wind most days, we found most of our walleyes in 10-13 feet.  On a couple spots we did  well casting crankbaits to shallow rocks in just a few feet of water, however most walleyes were caught with a jig and minnow. Best walleye was 29 1/4. 

 

Anywhere we caught small walleyes was a good area to cast large spoons, buck tails, and crankbaits for northerns. We had several northerns in the 33-35" range and the biggest was just over 38"  .

    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
    • Very nice. You need to start making Youtube fishing videos with them now like #fish_time does with his kids!  😀 You can tell their fishing with Dad and not Mom.  Did you help your daughter with her boots Dad? 😄
    • Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!    
    • Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing.
