On the East end most of my fish are comming out of 19' to 30' of water this week.

Jigs/minnows or lindys/minnows.

We were just on the West end of the lake and we caught our walleyes in 25'to 35' fow, using jig and minnows.Hibbing Point is a good place to try if you are on the west end. No luck on the muskies though.

On the east end we were hammering them in a 24-28 foot hole off of an Island. We were using the (I tie my own) northland spinners (w/glow in the dark beads) that look like a fish and #6 chartruese gamakatsu hooks. 4 foot leader. 1/2 oz no snag sinker. From morning till 5pm they bit hard when trolled fast with a shiner minnow. Then at night we switched to 2 foot leaders with chartruese rattle bead and chubs in 10 feet of water.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
