Dog Days of Summer

2 posts in this topic

A friend of mine and I headed out to nest lake early last friday for a morning of fishing knowing it was going to be a scorcher out, but to our surprise the fishing was fantastic.

We were able to find some walleye action, a good sunfish bite and also some good pike action too.

I ended up with my biggest walleye so far this season, a 25.5" eye that I got a couple pics of before we watched her swim off. Most of the other eyes were quite small, as were all but one of the pike. The sunfish were decent size, in the 8-9" range, but the better ones were out deep in about 20-22' of water. Hopefully I can get a pic up of the walleye I caught and released. I should have taken one with my cell phone camera instead of my one time camera. Oh well, next time i will remember that. Has anyone else been out chasing eyes and having any luck?

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
