I wish I could help you out but I haven't been out for a week now. Too many projects to get crossed off my list right now.

Good Luck tonight!

The river is dynamite, as usual. You can catch hundreds of 12'' smallies, dozens of 16'', and the occasional piggie. I've been doing best for the big ones at sundown, but the middle of the day is awesome as well. Topwaters, plastics, cranks, tubes, mister twisters, etc etc etc. They're all working now.

Concerning lakes, I have only been out to Beaver and Sagatan (on SJU campus). The largies are going pretty good, too, but my lack of deep-water skills means that I do much better at dusk than in the afternoon.

Hope that helps. Just get on the old tennis shoes, bring a pocket full of plastics, and walk around the river. You can't miss 'em!

I second that!!! The river is phenomenal right now. We have been using Night crawlers and launching it out there and you pretty much come up with something everytime!!! We even caught 4 or 5 walleyes on crawlers too. Really a lot of fun right now!!! Good luck.....

Studer,

You still fishing below 10th Street? I remember you talking about the tube fishing a while ago...

been having luck on the river as well, above sartell dam. LOTS of smallies in the 12-18 range, some walleyes that would be good eaters if they weren't out of the river, some skinny northerns and even some catfish.

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
