Fishing Report - (#2 - 2011)

Greetings! Water temps have been fluctuating from 60-68 degrees throughout every day. Fishing has been getting better and better, bass are on their beds, loads and loads of slab crappie have been caught, big walleyes, big northern, and big muskies!! The bite has been steady the past week now, with walleyes being caught deep in the mornings and afternoon (24-32ft), on lindy rigs (4-6 foot snells) tipped with a leech, minnows seem to be on their way out while crawlers are working their way in. Slip bobber with a leech has been getting better and better fishing the reefs before dark (5-12ft). Crappies were found in shallow bays with timber (1-5ft). The pan fishing has been great as well with nice sized slabs being filleted. Northerns have been mostly on crankbaits, casting in the bays or trolling the rock reefs and deeper shorelines, (4-7" baits) color hasnŐt seemed to matter much. Bass have moved up on the banks and are on their beds, watermelon and pumpkin soft plastics for flippin docks, 3-5" crankbaits, and some rattle traps. Muskies have been on the prowl, chasing smaller baits than expected, inline spinners - number 4 or 5 mepps or other similar baits, tandem spinners like the "Shumway Hot Heads black and orange", and the most recent has been on single or double number 8's, Dreamcatcher with an orange blade, black with nickel bladed Lily Tails tipped with a white trailer grub, and Glittertail walleye colored double 8's, and No topwater action yet. Here are some recent catches, if I forgot you and your catch, please email or call me with the information. Congratulations to all!!

Fishing Report - (opening week - 2011)

Opening week has come and gone!! The west end produced some nice fish this first week, tons of crappie especially, AND NICE SIZED TOO!! The first part of the week, Norwegian Bay was the crappie hole, and the later part of the week was Black Bay. Bobber fishing with a small jig with a tiny twister and a crappie minnow was best. Walleyes were lethargic the first part of the week, but started to pick up Thursday and Friday. Shallow sand and gravel shorelines have produced some nice pike and walleyes trolling crankbaits 2.5-3.5 mph "Wakemup Bay". For depths and presentation, lindy rigs 16-22ft during the day, night time moving into 8-14 & slip bobbers before dark in 8-12ft. Fish are loaded on Hibbing Point right now and getting primed up for some slip-bobber action before dark!! Heres a few big fish turned in, if we forgot you, please call or email me the info and I will add it for you.
