Heading up this weekend, wondering how things are going. Was up last weekend north of Duluth and turnover had happened and most of the weeds where brown. It was some hard fishing looking for bass tips.

its that time of year when most locals are starting to get into hunting mode and have put the rods away. Jason might still be fishing, i would say the bass and pike should be biting up shallow the eyes will still be on the weededge i would imagine. Jonah

Yes, I've still been out. I had three guide trips last weekend and success was varied dependent upon the lake. In terms of bass, the smallmouth are insane. Potato was good for the big smallmouth, especially last Sunday morning when it warmed up a bit. Largemouth have been active as well. However, Eighth Crow Wing was very bad, the water looked like chocolate milk. But many lakes have been doing pretty well.

Not the best weekend for fishing, 30 mph winds kept us off the lake most of the weekend but still got a good 10 hours+ out there. 2 pike, 1 bass, 2 sunfish, and 1 perch. I tried spoons, spinners, dt's, floaters, shad raps, bobber and sucker, the best comb I found and caught all the fish was a chartreuse 1/4oz. jog with a fathead or leech. Most fish where coming out of 10 - 12 fow and the weeds where brow on most parts of the lake except for the drops. Also the weeds had what looked like barnacles on them not sure what that is. All in all not a bad weekend would have liked more fish but the weather wasn't helpin.

Good luck on the water!

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
