The report noted that they are biting on mid lake reefs but I never believe the reports.

Anyone have the temps?

Ya we pulled 2 out of Center Reef - trolling clown rapalas. One was a 18" and the other was a 24", I agree we couldn't fing them in anyone area, I even drove aroung the other reefs and didn't mark any fish on the Lowrance... Maby I will hit MTKA one more time this year - Ice needs to hurry up-lol-

Everyone, their brother and their mother hit the traditional structures on this lake. I almost completely avoid them. I think that these walleyes are well accustomed to what a jig or minnow bait looks like.

I think you'll have better luck if you check out areas outside of the humps or the flats NE of the island and Nelsons, and cruise for them - that is if they haven't moved shallower yet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      yesturday we were about 1/2 mile below the sartell dam and 4 jet skiis headed north to the dam area. the kind that yo stand on. looked like they all had go pros on helmets and looked like they were on a mission to have some fun. would have been nice to see what they did up there.

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
