Caught a few a week ago Sunday night, several dinks, but a couple in the 16-18" range. Went out Saturday morning & caught junk fish, 8-9 little bass, perch, sunfish, rock bass... I didn't fish the same spot I caught walleyes on before, I was looking for new spots. I was fishing the deep edges of the deep weedlines on both outings. The deeper humps that I checked, only a couple, were completely bare.

I SPENT SATURDAY EVENING AND SUNDAY AM ON THE LAKE - THE WALLEYES WERE IN A FEEDING FRENZY! NO TROUBLE CATCHING FISH - LIKE AN EARLIER POST - HOOK COLOR AND BEAD COLOR SEEMED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. ALSO CAUGHT FISH ON JIGS. 36 FEET OF WATER BEFORE THE SUNSET (9.00 PM) AND THEN FOLLOWED THEM UP THE BREAK TO THE TOP. PLENTY OF YEAR CLASSES OF FISH 10" ON THE SMALL END AND 27" ON THE LARGE END.

IT'S TO BAD I WONT GET BACK UP FOR 3-4 WEEKS.

I was just wondering if anyone knows of any Bars or Restaurants on the lake? We are going to be up there all day on Friday and will need to come in to get some food. Also, how are the walleyes biting up there? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...

You can get a great burger and a beer at Jim & Judy's. They are located right along Hwy. 29, across the road from the east side of the lake.

Speaking of Jim and Judy's, does anybody know what all the construction is for on the west side of 29 just north of Jim and Judy's?

We were looking at that over the last week & decided they're making improvements to the golf course. At first I thought it was a housing development, but my brother-in-law, who actually golfs & has golfed there before, thought it looked like they were working on #8 & #9. That's just speculation, no actual known facts.

You can also get some great food and a cold beer at the Leaf Valley Mercantile. They are located on county road 6 jsut off the west side of the lake.

The town of Miltona and Leaf Valley have some good places to eat. Also, a little way from Leaf Valley is the twon of Millerville with a nice small restaraunt.

I believe the construction is for homes on one side of 29...and addition to the golf course on the other side...but I am not 100% sure.

I believe you're correct on that. I only answered about the West side because I thought that was the question, but that's sure how it looks to me.

Crop,

I'd imagine you've been fishing the evening bite then? I might be out friday evening, but saturday evening for sure.

Are you a west end or east end guy?

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.
