i will be heading up next weekend and will be doing most of our fishing from center island to Life of Riley Resort. Just wondering how's the fishing been, was up the first week in july and the walleye/perch fishing was slow.

I don't fish that end of the lake, but the walleye fishing on the East end is really picking up. You should also be getting a much better bite going on the West end by now.

The water is starting to cool down and the fish are going into their fall bite mode. laugh.gif

its been spotty...travel alot and you will catch fish....very shallow at the moment....even pitching a small jig into two three feet is working...use the wind always..........could be a whole different story by next week....fish off the spots that usally work...but just go shallower...good luck and set that hook!!!!!

I just got back from a week at Pehrson's on the West end. The 'eyes are still hitting crawlers hard. I got a 17+ on a harness & lindy rig and an 18+ on a jig, both with worms. I also got quite a few keepers. Look off Windsock Island as well as the flats all over.

As far as worms, the Vermilion Trading company in Cook seemed to stock the fattest.

I'd also like to put in a plug for a great guide. Doug Knoer was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful in finding and boating fish.

Best of luck!

just back from a week on the westend...

had to move alot, one or two fish on a spot, then move on...

12 to 20 ft...lindy and crawler presentation. Quite a few slot fish, 25 inches being the biggest released...liked it slow...fish still seemed to be spread out..did pull shadraps, size 5 and 7, a couple of evenings...matching the perch

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
