Was looking for them last night and no luck. Had fun catching gills, smallies, and rock bass though.

Took a friend of mine from work out this evening.The wind was a little harsh for pitching small crappie jigs but we still managed to tear them up pretty good.Sent him home with a nice batch of crappies and caught plenty more to boot that went back in the water.With the wind cranked up it seems the fish drop down a little deeper than in calm conditions.Ive been sticking with jig and crappie tubes,it takes to long to fool around with live bait the way they are hitting right now.Ill be interested to see if the fish change locations after this cool down thats forcast...Good luck out there....

Good report sir!

I was planning on hitting the river tomorrow evening for a bit, might have to give that a try south of the kinnie...

I kinda get bored with walleyes by this time of year anyway, like to wait till the water cools off some more.

Any areas that they are? I usually fish the bluffs, is that a good area for them?

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
