Just got back from a week on a houseboat. Fishing was day to day different. Fished Namakan first five days and caught fish every day. Fished around Juniper Island and Wolf Pack area. Walleyes from 15-40 feet on leeches/crawlers on lindys or jigs. Smallies were active on topwater baits and x-raps on any shallow rock piles. Most walleyes were 10-18 inches with a few in the 20-24" range. Best day was Tuesday from 12-1 in the afternoon. Fished Kabetogama the last two days and hammered the walleyes. Switched to crawlers and spinners over humps the first day. Second day fished around Green Island and pulled crawlers and hammered all sizes of fish. Watched a guy pull in and bobber fish this flat and must have caught 50 fish in less than two hours with three guys. Most of his were small, but enough to keep for sure. He was using leeches under his floats. Hope this helps. Smallies were also active in shallow rock areas on topwater and x-raps.

Thanks, Gus. O.k. the 23rd is coming fast. How has fishing been the past few days. Sounds like its going to be hotter than blazes when we are up there next week. We will be lindy rigging with leaches for walleyes. Any info on this week's bite?

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
