I know a guy that has his hard house out by the white barn. He said it was 8-9 inches last time I talked to him. Good luck when you go out. Is there a lot of hard houses out there? I havent been by there for a few days, thinking about putting mine out this weekend.

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      5/29/17 Fishing report from Flag Island Resort NW Angle, Lake of the Woods   Happy Memorial Day!   The past week has brought some variation in weather including sunshine, wind and rain. Overall fishing has been good.  The bug hatches have started with the fish flies having some impact on the fishing but, anglers are still consistently getting limits.   On the Minnesota side, the walleye, sauger, pike and perch bite continues. The magic depths have been between 7-13 feet in the mud and 16-26 feet on rocks. The Flag Island Flats are starting to heat up. Other hot locations include points and near shore reefs. Just the same as last week all tactics have had their day. Jigging, raps and spinners have all been producing once you find what is working. The water temp is around 58 degrees.   Over in Ontario anglers are still catching a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, crappie, perch, pike and smallmouth bass. The crappies are moving shallower getting ready to spawn. Some depths according to their species are as follows; Smallmouth bass 2-8 feet, Walleyes 20-24 feet and Sauger 26-30 feet. Points, reefs, humps, areas with current, rock piles and inside turns have all worked when looking for locations. A jig or spinner with a minnow or crawler has worked best. The hot colors have been gold, pink and orange.   Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.
