Spirit Lake or Okaboji reports?

Recommended Posts

As of last Saturday SL was still pretty slow did hear reports of a few nice gills on the grade and templar park. several people trying anglers bay but I never heard anything good.

We fished west lake O Saturday morning with little success there were some people getting a few perch in little Millers up in the NW corner but if you don't bring your wheeler its a pretty good haul with all of your stuff. there were a few people fishing the canals and I heard some decent reports and some nice fish but the action was slow. We fished Little Emerson's in the afternoon where we drove out there like the other 50 people. We did find some decent fish but not alot of keepers these fish are very picky and there were alot of slough sharks and 'skies on the prowl and i did manage to get a few decent bass. There were people on the big bay but they werent out too far and I never heard any reports. The last time I was out on Smith's it was still dirty and there were very few fish there but the ones that were there were small and very aggressive.

Hope this helps alittle if you need to know anything else i'm planning on going back Saturday you can give me a call for a more recent report.

From all reports I've heard, it's slow. Little Emerson and Miller's were the only decent reports OhShucks had last night. I'm sticking to farm ponds and having excellent panfish action...maybe Okoboji in another week or so.

Did see a couple of full sized pickups on Smith's by the permanent shacks last Sunday. I wouldn't recommend it, but didn't hear of anyone going through either.

Anyone know if they're driving out on Emerson yet? Gotta be getting close. Would like to give it a try there this weekend but with the bone chilling temps forecast, I don't want to be dragging the shack too far from the truck.

Heard from another source that a truck went through on Emerson Bay last Saturday. Sounds like Little Emerson and Smith's are OK, but that's about it as far as driving out. Maybe with these frigid temps in the forecast, that'll change in a week or so.

Be careful driving out. I know somebody that drove out, parked next to the "ice road" and walked 40 yards to set up and punched trhough 4" of ice. That was late last week. Plenty irregular ice out there and everywhere this year.

    • Stuff is getting hard to find so best load up on ammo I'd you find it.  Many have rebates going now so that helps some.   I haven't shot the new Feferal TSS shot yet but guys that have report excellent patterns and downrange energy.  Luke Don mentioned 45 yards is doable depending on your gun's pattern.  Two springs ago my dad dumped a big Tom at 54 yards, (misjudged the yardage and bird was working away) with the federal heavyweight in 6 shot with his 20 gauge.  I'm not advocating for shooting those distances, but it's a testmate to how far this ammo has come. 
    • I've been seeing them in corn fields and around home owner homes.
    • if you have gone through a set of carbides in 1000 miles you definitely need to change them now as you are getting a lot of wear 
    • Just a reminder this Seminar is tonight.
    • I did shoot the RX-1 but there was more hand vibration and a little louder. RX-3 did not have any of that . Also could just be in my head but felt smoother in the draw too.
    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
