The Knauf crew came out of Jeanette Lake this morning and caught fish like crazy. With the cooler weather and even some snow on Friday they had to figure out where the fish were everyday because the water temperature was changing daily and even during the different hours of the day. Evening fishing was definitely better than the morning this week on Jeanette and the fish’s depths ranged from 5 feet to 18 feet at times. The bait fish were very thick in the deeper water sometimes and were very visible on the depth finder Tony said. When the walleyes were shallow Tony out fished everyone one afternoon with a bobber and a hook with a minnow 3 feet down. He caught 52 walleyes in 3 hours, and lots of them were in the 20 inch class. Overall they said that the fishing was great.
The winner of the biggest fish though was this guy….Ralph. I tell most everyone that there are many big northerns caught right off the dock or just in front of the cabin. It looks like this one was caught right off the dock!. Ralph had the lucky hand this trip as he also caught a 40 inch,39.5 inch and a 36.5 inch in addition to this heavy 44 inch northern pike.
We also had some new guests at the Cobham last week from North and South Carolina and New Jersey. These guys drove all the way to Red Lake because the fishing is the absolute best! They had some good fish too. 3 northerns over 40 inches measuring 40,41,42 inches and 35 over 30 inches. The weather was cooler than seasonal which made for smaller walleyes than normal but they know how good it can be and will be back next year.
