Let me guess, 1/4 ounce wieght, a lindy with a plain hook, and a fat crawler. No suprise there. If you are catching sunnies there usually is walleyes near by, but they can be overwhelming at times. With this heat you would think that the walleyes would be deep but that has not been the case for you this year crawler. Can't beleive it, its August and you still have the boat out, won't be long and you will have to put it away to bowhunt.

gerry ,

who let you out of your cage?

correct on the sunnys,does a fisherperson take only a doz.of the best with him?

I figered the the speed over the 4-5 ft weeds in 12 ft water kept me just above the weeds , trigered the eyes and out of the sunnys in the deeper weeds. hows that'''

would have caught move eyes if reel didn"t catch up and feed faster. Kids don't buy dads new reels do they?

gerry order sight yet?.

Yep, I ordered the site's tonight. Hopefully be here by the end of the week. I got them for cheaper than what you gave me, but I am your son so you owe me. Its funny that everybody is talking about night trolling Long, but it seems that the best time is when it is busy and to get in the weeds.

Long has been funny the last few years, we catch most of our walleyes of not all between 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. trick is to use heavier wieghts, get past he sunnies, and they are shollow. Thats a nioce new spot you found there Dad. I will be up nex weekend to hopefully catch a few. If they are not biting at Long we will go the the better lake. grin.gif

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
