I think this is the week that you took off for LOW. At least I didn't see your boat on the lift. Drop a post here when you get back and let me know how you did. So so weekend at the lake. Got about 4" of rain, water level definitly up. Nice day on Saturday and Sunday morning before I took off. Slowly coming to an end though. Bill

Thats exactly what worked this past weekend. A few on minnows but the majority on the plastics. Sure are some brilliant colors up there right now. I'm thinking next weekend will be just about it for the good show. Bill

Hi Bill, My week on LOW was great! Just got back Saturday the 29th. Lots of fish and good size too. Was on the Canadian side out of Nestor Falls in the Split Rock area (about 50 miles north of International Falls on the east side of the lake). Very different than the Baudette area, lots of islands and protected bays, just beautiful. We targeted walleye and crappie, very good bite.

My wife went to our cabin the weekend of the 22nd and discovered we had storm damage. Some trees down, a large limb went right through the roof and one window broken completely. Haven't had time to check it out yet, she took pictures and kind of patched things up. The window should be no big deal but I'm going to have someone look at the roof, may have to file an insurance claim depending on the $$$ amount. I have a lot of stuff lined up in Oct. to get done there before shutting things down the end of the month. Good thing I got my fishing in this past week! Dave

Dave: Glad to hear you had a good trip to LOW. Nice to get into a good bite for sure. Yes we had on he!!uva storm two weeks ago. In fact that weekend I did not get over to your side of the lake. It went through on Thursday. We came through Ogilive and couldn't believe the amount of trees and power lines that were down. They had crime tape over almost all of the side roads and crews from all over trying to get power back. No problems on our side but I had my fingers crossed. A few blown down branches but nothing major. My rain gauge showed just over 4" of rain. We got a few good showers last week again, should bring that water level up. Two more weekends for me and then shut down the water, pump etc and off to SD for some long tails. We'll be up mid Nov though, as long as there is heat and some DeWars its worth the trip. LOL Hope all goes well with your damage, nothing real serious. Maybe see you before we lock the door. Bill

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
