Baptiste Lake
« on: July 04, 2011, 01:15:41 AM »
I am off to Baptiste early in the morning with a group of friends to fish for the day.  I have not been there in a while, but I think I know where I will start looking for some big walleyes... ;)

I will post some pics and give a report in the evening.

The trip to Baptiste went pretty good.  We caught tons of fish, and the best was 61cm.  My buddies trolled spinners and Gulp for most of their day and caught over 100 fish in one of the boats, and my buddy Dave and I rigged and jigged trying to find some bigger fish.  There were 6 of us out there altogether with two guys in each boat.  The best pike was about 8 lbs.

Too bad there are no largemouth Bass in that lake, as there is a ton of awesome habitat for them there!

Nice !!!

Looks beautiful out there Chris,, a place a guy should hit for sure.

Chris you mention the use of the Gulp products, what are your views on the stuff I mean honestly.. I have been tempted to try it at times but it just seems a little pricey for something that personally I just can't put much faith in. I am a huge bait fisherman probably 90% of my fishing for any species is done with fresh bait of some sort. How would you rank the Gulp products up against natural baits..

Looked like a pretty good day, Chris.  Just wait till those wallies grow up a bit eh.  Thanks for posting.

Note: Moved my comment about Gulp baits to the new thread.

We have a greed with which we have agreed...
Society, you're a crazy breed.
I hope you're not lonely without me.

I don't know where Satellite Bay is.  I know of Onion Point, and that's about it for local names on that lake.  The lake was getting green in spots.  The ag runoff and cabin development makes for the bad algae.

If you want to go there sometime, just let me know!

Satellite Bay is the bay just north of Onion Point aka Barlows Point. Take a look at all the satellites hanging off the cabins around that bay next time. I will be up to the Chuck from the 28th-30th of this month. If you're around set it up, i'd love a quick tour with you in this years rig.

I will see what I can do.  I have a few things I am trying to juggle into my schedule.
