Slow fished 7 mile & Seguchie was out from 5:30 till 1:00 caught 3 keepers and 5 throw backs. We caught fish but it was pretty slow we did much better on Thursday. Less hours and caught around 15 fish with 2 slots.

The fishing has slowed for me from what it has been, but still definitely worth the trip. 2 guys caught about 12 fish, 4 slots in a half days worth. I would recommend getting away from all the boats. Was by a lot of boats with nothing going, and didnt start catching til we found our own spot.

Fished Sat. from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the mud. There were 3 of us and we trolled cranks using lead core from 5 to 7:30 an we boated a 22". Switched to slip bobbers and leeches from 7:30 to 10 and proceeded to catch 27", 3-26", 24", and a keeper 15". Most fish were caught right towards dark around 9:00. Beautiful day on the lake with a slight breeze and didn't feel like 95 degrees.

3 of us caught 18 fish on the mud. 5 fish from 26-27 1/4". 3 keepers. Find the right color combo and the bite can go from non-existent too very consistent. Leeches and crawlers on lindys and slips bobber.

We fished Blue Jug flat. We caught 12. No fish in the slot. Fish were in the 22-26 1/2 " range.

Caught fish on both leeches & crawlers. 10 ft snells, chart hook and single chart bead. grin.gif Seems like the last two trips (6/29 and yesterday, the chart hooks produced and the red has hooks have not been as productive. I've heard of people doing well over the last week using orange hooks also.

We also found that the red hook wasn't producing for us on Sat. One guy caught the first 4 fish on a chart. hook and orange bead. Once we all used those colors, we all started catching fish. Worked 7 and 8 mile and caught 12 fish, biggest 27" and two under 20".

I guess it pays off to have everyone in the boat trying something different as far as colors go. grin.gif Way to go!!!!

Fished today 07-09 0700-1400 and did not do very well, but didn't really give 'er the best effort. One of those days where just about everything goes wrong. landed 4 all 22-26 inchs. I found them on the top edges of the flats. 1 on spinner/crawler 3 on lindy/leech.

If you get up there soon, try orange, or chart hooks.

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
