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.

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
