oneeye,

You're not alone but things should change soon. For me, it's been quite a bit of "here and there" lately but by Monday I should know more. smirk.gif

T.O, how has the bite been, I havent been walleye fishing, or crappie fishing for awhile, I need to get out soon. Have you been having any good luck?

The crappie fishing is still decent but the schools aren't as tight as they have been. The 'eye fishing came to a complete stop for me yesterday. Never saw one come in the boat. Hopefully today will be better.

Water temps from last Sunday to today on Washington have dropped ten degrees. Got skunked today, after having some luck last Sunday.

Nice to put a stake in the recreation traffic so I can get back off the river and back on some of the area lakes...I would imagine we have some very good days in the next couple of weeks through fall.....

Definitely some good days ahead. The fish had changed from yesterday to today as far as grouping and aggression. The big boom is right around the corner. As for water temperature, yes, big swings there too. Mid to low 60's is what I have seen the last few days.

Thanks T.O., I wont be able to get out until early next week, hopefully by then their patterns changed. I have been layed up do to a couple surgeries this spring and summer, the few times I did get out, in between surgeries I had good luck. I think I am healthy enough to spend a couple evenings/ early nights on the waters now, in search of some action, I was thinking of hitting, either lura, or tetonka, or something in that area. Any recent reports good or bad on these spots?

Solid bite on Tetonka. Check my report titled "Forcing the Issue" if you haven't already.

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
