Hello everyone this is my first post, been reading for awhile really like the site now i can put in my two cents also. Maybe there needs to be slot limits assessed to local lakes, or more selective harvest to help out with this problem.

On this lake I do not think it is a shortage of fish that has slowed the bite but rather an abundance of food source as the perch population as exploded.

Diamond has alot of bait fish. Perch, Crappies and shiners,

all make for hard fishing.

i agree with the statement that there is not a shortage of fish. i don't think that the bite has slowed to terribly bad. about 1.5 years ago i moved to atwater and i am seriously on diamond 3 to 4 times per week. one thing that i have noticed is that the fish move a lot and have very distinguished patterns. once you figure this pattern out, one would be surprised as to the numbers of quality fish.

warrior I totally agree with you. Up until the last few years, i had a hard time finding walleyes in late summer or even mid summer for that matter until a friend gave me some new advice and techniques to try and wow did that make a world of difference. The fish are still there, you just have to figure out there patterns from season to season and then your success will improve.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
