I have been doing very well on Big Floyd. I go out to the bar that runs from the NW. Anchor along the weed edge in 11-12 feet of water. Lots of 8-9 inch sunnies and a few crappies to boot. Plane plastic bodied jig....

Paceman, are you just casting out or bobber fishing with the jigs, I guess when I go I usually just bobber it up with a night crawler or grub. Thanks for any advice

dragon81 send me an email: If you are looking to just catch a bunch and weed through some small ones to get to some nice ones (7-9") with an occasional 10"... I would be willing to share a spot....I have been out there the past few nights with a light rod and 2lb' line...I've been having a blast! Haven't kept any yet, but it sure is fun! Picked up a couple of bass that provided some entertainment and a couple of snot rockets that provided a lost jig, but other than that it's been fun!

DLOUTDOORS,

I guess I have never tried to email anyone on here and I have been trying, could you let me know how to do that or find your email, I will also post a similar message to this on the site, Yeah I am just wanting to catch a few and take some buddies out that dont fish much in the summer. I rarely keep many fish in the summer either. Just for the fun. THANKS

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
