I fished White bear on Wed 6am to 2pm. Had one muskie on (around 40ish) for a few quick seconds and then she wanted to see how high she could jump!!!!

I moved a few more fish after that. All my action came in a 15 minute window.

So far in the metro this year it seems to be real short feeding windows.

Anybody having any luck with the Tigers yet?

I caught one bass fishing on Bald Eagle 2 weeks ago! On a spinnerbait... at least 40".... didn't have a net... so didn't get it in the boat.

The man with a 40" BASS - MUST BE A WORLD RECORD! haha, right there out of Bald Eagle. Would have been a great headliner. So was it a Musky? or a 20" bass?

I went on Sunday to try to get anything out of Bald Eagle - I did not find any 'skis but I did find several northerns and bass, all in the north end of the lake by the big set of private docks. Nothing worth noting, though...bit was really slow unless you were using worms, and then it was mainly sunnies and crappies biting.

On another note, I've never seen a launch as busy and packed as what I saw yesterday - boats 9-12 deep waiting to launch/get off. However, I do have to say everyone was really nice and quick about getting their boats in and out!

I beg to differ on the launch at Hairy Sparrow (Bald Eagle) on Sunday. We all know father's day is going to be the day for the amateurs at the ramp. I wasn't expecting to see much that impressed me there, but one that baffled me was a guy with his wife and 4 kids. Backs the ski boat into the water, gets it off the trailer, his wife holds the front of the boat while the 4 kids jump in, in the meentime, the back of the boat swings around. This blocked the other ramp, the boat swung all the way around so it was basically backwards on the trailer. Then he just moved it to the end of the dock so it was perpendicular, gets out and goes to park the truck, still blocking one of the two ramps.

I think from now on, if a person is having trouble, I might go and help them out and offer them some tips. We should all think about this and maybe it will relieve some of the stress at the ramp by helping rather than getting frustrated.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
