As of this morning (6/15) on the west side the water temps are in the mid-60's and there isn't even a hint of a hatch yet..... nothing on the surface, and none of those tell-tale 'clouds' on sonar.

Frazer Bay had temps in mid 60's last weekend (9th-10th) with mayfly's on the surface. Whitefish were rolling surface both nights, I'm assuming they were feasting on the mayflys.

How's the hatch up in the Wake em up Bay area? We are planning on heading up there later this week(if I can get the RV fixed) to do some camping and fishing.

They are thick on the north side of Hinsdale. All over the cabin.

I fished the Greenwood Bay area this morning for a couple of hours. Only caught one 18" walleye.

Mayflys all over the surface there. tongue.gif

Water temp in Frazer bay was 72-74. Friday night there were mayflys on the surface, flying and in the water column. Fishing was great anywhere near the clouds as long as I was marking fish under them near the bottom. Standard lindy, 5' snell, red bead, red hook and a whole crawler. No short bites. I boated 12 in 40 minutes with 4 keepers. Saturday morning was the same with larger fish. After that things slowed to a crawl. Lots of marks, not a lot of active fish.

Hey Mark,

Been off line for a couple of days. I've been up every other weekend since opener and looking for you! I've also had some time during the week which has been nice. I'll been in Canada the week of the 4th. We'll catch up at some point. Fishing has been pretty good as long as you find them grin.gif

In regards to a mayfly hatch, I fished Mille lacs today and the mayfly's were so thick you could get a false reading for the bottom. We did do very well though with slots and some nicer eyes. It can be done only with a little extra effort. smile.gif

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
