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

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.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.

      I dont think you will have trouble. Just be careful. There are a million trucks driving all over the place now

      Big Pine as of 1/15 had 16" of ice on the north side.  Only drilled 5 holes and all were around 16" according to my ice scoop.  Just placed fish house out there for the nephew and called it good.  Sorry no fishing report.
