Stump Lake (Overview) - Saturday, January 24, 2015

 Went out yesterday . Started in 24 ft of water and graphed a lot of fish on vexilars. Hard bite. You really have to entice them. I used a yellow and orange gem n eye with small minnows and wax worms would catch a few then it would die down. Since weather was nice we slowly worked our way towards shore. Would catch a few perched then it would die down so we would move again. Drill more holes and caught 10 perch in a matter of mins.  Caught a limit of walleye and a limit of perch in 5 hours. Walleyed were all 16 inch keepers and perch ranged from 8 to 12 inches. They are there u just have to find them. Hard bite and light bite   They seemed to like wax works between noon and 3. Walleye moved in about 4ish then we switched to minnows. 5 guys. 9 walleye. And about 35 perch in 5 hours.  It took a lot of work but hey that's why they call it fishing and not catching. Hope this helps

Not so much a report.  Although I did good on perch over the weekend in 30 feet of water on the west end.  Had to move around a lot but would find small active schools.

Wondering what you guys use for map chip when fishing Stump.  Mine doesn't show Stump.

Went out today, entered lake from south side on old #1 (sunken road).  Followed shore around to the east.  Fished in 31 foot of water, ice was about 1.5 foot thick where we were.  We had an FL18 and a camera.  Flashed some perch, saw many perch on the camera.  There were so many darn shrimp it was hard to see, looked like my house during the summer with damn skeeters.  It did not matter what we threw at them, live minnows, minnow heads, waxies, spoons, jiggin rapalas, rattle spoons, etc.  We could not buy a bite.  We saw MANY perch swim right up to the lure, just sit there and watch then swim away.  Holding the bait dead-still, slow tremor, hard jig, etc, they would not bite.  Anyone else figure out what the heck they want??  About sundown we caught one small, maybe 8 inch perch.  Right before we left we had something blow by the camera so fast we could not tell if it was a fish or a rocket.  About a second later, did not even flash on my flasher, my pole bent double.  Ever pull in a 4 pound snot rocket on an ultra-lite set up for perch?  It was a blast, I swore my pole should have broken in half, never seen one bend that way.  4 Lb line held that sucka right up through the hole... he's supper tomarrow.  Good luck y'all, I can't figure out what the finicky perch want.

 Went out Monday, Slooooow. Caught a couple of small walleyes on dead sticks. We fished the west side of old one just outside the trees. We worked hard and moved a lot. We drilled a lot of holes just to barely get our limit. That's why it's called fishing not catching.   No spot was better than the other.  We fished 36-45 ft of water. Perch liked small jigs tipped with waxies, very light biters.  Going out before the weekend, hopefully a better results.

 Went fishing Monday, very Slooooooow.  Caught a couple of small Walleyes on dead sticks.  Really had to work hard for perch. I was all over the west side of old of one.  Drilled many holes just to find fish. Found fish in deep water 38-45 of the trees.  No spots were better than the other. really had to put in time and effort just to barely get our limit. Moving was critical.  Waxies and small jigs, very light biters.  Going out before the weekend, hopefully better than Monday.

 Fished east side of of new hwy 1.  We did awesome.  We found some deeper water and caught fish in the morning 8:30-11:00 then 2:00-5:00.  we were catching fishing up to 5:00 the main reason for leaving was weather an bad road conditions.  Dead sticks caught 1 fish. All fish were caught on waxies and minnow heads. Northland jigs and Buckshots did great. It caught all the walleye and lots of the perch.  Constant jiggin and watching the flasher was key.  47.87875 -98.29945.  Happy holidays and good luck fishing this weekend.

Decided to fish stump and not Devils this past weekend.  Fished east side of new one with out any luck. Moved to the southeast side of old one. Fished in 28' caught 3 walleye fished 34' of water away from a tree and killed the perch. We ended up catching over 40 perch. All caught on small jigs and waxies right off the bottom. Very light bite, camera helped tremendously.  47.87126 -98.31016.

 Stump lake ice this year is so-so.  Luckily I've been out and have done very well in mid 20's off of structure.  For you guys with GPS this should help. N 47.87550 W98.31175, N47.87478 W 98.31175, N 47.87292 W98.31165 I've done well at each location. Buckshots were the key with whole minnow and UV COLORS were the most productive.  I hope this helps for the weekend angler.  Devils lake is on the agenda for this weekend. If I do good I'll let you know in the Devils lake fishing report.

 I went out Saturday got on some really nice walleyes. Slow bite from 10am-2pm and at 3 it turned up to where we couldn't keep rods in the water a few nice perch and a limit of nice walleye .. The ice is all over the board I fished a 20 yard circle about 80 yards of shore and found a spot I fished the ice varied from 2-1/2 inches to 8 inches in about 5 feet.. Had the best luck with a live minnow dropping a spoon to the bottom and bringing it up about 2 feet a fish on about every minute.
