The thunderstorms that ran through there between 2 and 3pm had winds of 50+ mph. 56 at the airport I think. ANyway, the strong winds probably caught a few boats sideways and tipped them over. It happened earlier this summer too. Some boats get moored in a way that places them broadside to the winds and they get blown over.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
