6 inches of rain in the last 2 weeks has water levels up

and movin! Cold fronts every couple of days for a couple

of days should be giving the fish lock jaw. But the bite

stays pretty good and the weekend weather lets us fish

anywhere.

The lake is consistant and the fish are of good size. Drop

anchor, turn your back to the wind and go to work. 4 of

us sat outside of the Morris Point Washout, the big pack

of boats was on the east side so we set up on the west

side, 19 feet deep. It was pretty steady, not 200 fish

days but close to 100 counting dink Saugers.

It seems at mid day the tiny Saugers move in pretty thick

and you stay pretty busy feeding them. A good time to go in

for lunch or try something different for a couple of hours.

Saturday afternoon we went out to one of the mid lake

rock piles and the fishing was slower there, but the fish

were pretty big. Another run of decent fish moves thru the

gaps late in the day so its a good place to finish up.

Sunday morning first thing we fished right in the Lighthouse

Gap and fought the current for about 20 minutes, then fished

the corner in 4 Mile Bay, caught one there and saw a few

others caught. We all thought it was better at Morris Point

so we finished up the morning there.

2 big fish fries, nice keeper Walleyes and limits of Saugers

as easy as throwing the anchor and being patient. Chalk up

another nice weekend fall fishing. When you are lucky

enough to get decent weather and have a good bunch of boat

mates it hard to beat. Nautical John, Lumpy and soon to

be Navy grunt Matt made for a fun weekend of lively conver-

sation too.

Curt, your report looks pretty lonely on here.

-First of all, thanks for a fantastic trip again. The hospitality and fishing knowledge is really appreciated by us folks from the cities to the south.

-Matt was very impressed with LOTW, and it was a nice way to send him off to the service.

-The Lump and I could not find the fish on Monday. Or they wouldn't bite I guess. The conditions had changed and the water was very dirty in the Gap.

-Hope you do well on your trip north.

Thanks again.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
