I am getting a lot of fish. Unfortunately, I tore my bicep tendon and had surgery. So I mostly watch others catch my fish for me.

I havent had to go downriver of the no wake zone at Watergate and I dont fish at the dam.

I prefer not to narrow it down any further. grin.gif

OH-Pier, actually this happened getting the boat out. Now about all I can do for fun is play cards.....and I am running GOOOOOOD at Canterbury!

Geez Dave, that's not too specific... grin.gif

Many thanks for the info. I may well be out tomorrow morning either on the upper stretch, or around 494. Both areas were very good up through early June, at which point I jumped over for some bass fishing. But these good reports have me thinking it's time to back on Pool 2.

Out yesterday, 20-25 eyes with 1/2 being 11-14". We moved down river (still above Lilydale) and found the 16-22" fish. Throw in a couple nice surprise pike, a 15-20 lb

MAMMOTH drum, the usual smallies and white bass and it was a busy 3-4 hours on the water.

Thanks

I was out Saturday 6/30 from 4 PM to 6:30 PM and managed ~6 walleyes pulling a blue and silver #5 crank bait. Went from the confluence up to the dam. No real size but one was 18".

Curious - what colors is everyone else using?

Regards,

Chris

It's not hush hush, got into some nice eyes on 7/2 about 8 am at the 18 foot mark of the island and then again upstream just before the current kicks up. But I sure wish the pleasure boaters would give up some room. It really blanks me off when they come screamin by at 40-50 mph and only 20-30 yds from an anchored boat !!!! Is there a law? !!!!

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
