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!

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

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      yesturday we were about 1/2 mile below the sartell dam and 4 jet skiis headed north to the dam area. the kind that yo stand on. looked like they all had go pros on helmets and looked like they were on a mission to have some fun. would have been nice to see what they did up there.

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
