Trees are important and deep water are important! If you can combine the two you got er made. What you need to keep in mind is that the deeper water and wood are generrally their daytime resting areas. They then move out of these areas to nearby back eddies, rock bars, shallow runs, cut banks, etc... to feed after dark. so I generally fish these areas until maybe midnight and then if it slows up I might move back to the hole before dawn and try to cut off the fish returning to the hole for the day. This is generally a good time for big fish. This is just my plan of attack but there are however several different ways you can go about it. This might be a good starting point and then you can kind of figure out what works best for you and make some adjustments from there. Hope this helps you out!! Good fishin!!

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
