Im heading up this week just wanted to see if any one has any fishing reports from the area.

Reports are sporadic, bass have been doing well, but walleye have been touch and go. They are still shallow and no reports of them on the reefs, yet. If we can get this wind to lessen, maybe a person could find them consistantly! confused.gif

Troll the shorelines. Look for rocky points that work into back bays. Have one person cast the shore while the other trolls some sort of rig. Jackfish has some great drifting runs. If the wind is blowing parellel to the shore, throw on some rigs and get ready to rock. Another option is to find some current. Jig the areas that narrow down and cut one body of water off from another. I know this post doesn't help that much because you are asking for fishing reports in the area, but if I was going up to fish that particular part of Basswood for Walleyes, that is what I would go for. Hopefully this helps...

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
