I am going to get after it this evening -- anyone been there lately? I heard 27-29 feet of water and a lindy with leech?

You guys hear anything?

I've been fishing 18-24 fow jiggin with a shinner. Also have been using slip bobbers with leach or shinner. shinner seems to get more leach gets bigger ones. Having an issue with a bunch of 10" walleyes so you should be in heaven.

Hit, the night I talked to you we ended up at Big C. Got there around 8:30pm and got about 15 crappies until they shut down near dark. Ended up fishing until 1:30am, and got 5 nice eyes, about 7 12"ers, and lost about 5 nice eyes on cranks or a shiner and a split shot in 6-10 fow.

We got a few walleyes trolling cranks. Lost one around 5 lbs at the boat, lots of smallies.

Shea -

Were the smallies you caught up on the breaks, or suspended?

Might hit C tomorrow and pester the smallies a little... So was just curious.

Cheers,

Cool - thanks Shae. Haven't been there in a couple weeks so was worried they'd gone 'out to sea.' Lot tougher when they suspend...

Cheers,

Pelican was a little slow. We only had a few nice bites and boated two small eyes. I guess they were there yesterday -- day late dollar short.

A buddy was on Big C and did better than we did.

pulled in a 21" smallie a few days back. A pig. Shoreline fishing was still good.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
