Yeah,yeah, Davey Boy. I would have got it done with the black and blue crayons if I wouldn't have asked you for help. Now I'm all the way through red,yellow,green, and orange, and still don't have it figured out.

BKB....you've got mail.

you need bigger paper.

and you might work on that crayon grip, the caveman grip is real tough on the crayon tips, it's probably also why you keep tearing through the paper when you draw.

"ugg, me cronk draw plan in dirt with stick.... dohh!! cronk break stick again!!!"

I'll see about getting a spot cleared in the shop for your seasonal lake home project.

later!!

WJ I sure hope they gave you those big fat crayons and they're not too sharp so you don't hurt yourself with all the brainstormin!

Tell us about the ice Jon, I understand you are the last of your kind, the last in an ancient mystically gifted string of land dwellers directly descended from an Encino era shaman known as the first ice whisperer... You have the gift, tell us what the ice is doing? What's it thinking? What sort of plans does it have for us this year on LOW? How will it form? When will it support us for the first hole fishing in the pine island area?

I didn’t get the shop cleaned last night cause I was working on my (Contact Us Please) plow truck, truck is ready to go now though.

So when we get your lake mansion built we can keep your ice road clean.

The Great Lager Spirit appeared to me in a vision last eve with news of an unblemished sheet of ice as far as the eye can see. One that is freezing uniformally, and will bear the tread of human feet as early as tomorrow. But alas, the vision came with a warning. If the land dwellers abuse or neglect this precious gift, large cracks and ridges are destined to form along routes to most bountiful fishing grounds.

Excellent.

I will respect the great spirit & obey it's wishes.

I may also leave gift of tobacco at the foot of the great totem pout monument for safe passage & fruitful fish harvest.

We made a version of your pout totem a couple of years ago. Had a run of pout in one spot and had quite a pile of stripped pout so we made what we called "Pouthenge". Turned into quite a work of art before the next storm covered it.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
