Cool, JG. You are a totally cool guy. I'd wondered about you based on what Great Outdoors said, but what does he know?

Let's bring G.O. onto Shag with us. When the ice starts to buckle, nimble young men like you and me need a fat oldtimer from Burntside to sacrifice to the Shag rotten-ice gods. Those Shag gods have a HUGE chip on their shoulder because Burntside is so deep and clear and didn't have a whole city dumping its sewage into the lake.

Yep, those Shag gods would LOVE to get a Bside Finn in their grasp, even one as lame as Maki. I can just see it now, us tossing Jaws into the frigid void. He'll go down into the gurgling depths shouting "Justin and catfish, you stupid non Finns, I'll see you in [edited by admin]!" grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

And, Justin, considering you have a whole winter's break from work to fish and post, you should fish a little less and post on HSO/FM a little more! I mean, who wouldn't want to learn about your 17-inch crappie hotspots on Basswood? Oh, and don't forget to post a complete description here of your sled and portable shelter. Kinda like an APB. grin.gifgrin.gif

It'll be a cold day in the final HOT resting spot, when you two "Blubber Butt Brothers" could ever touch the Flying Finn's 9.7 speed in the 100 meters, and toss him down a hole!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Oh, yikes, Jim, you are still up at this hour of the night? I know they tuck you folks in at the nursing home earlier than this. Did you slip one of the nurses a BIG BILL to let you sneak online at such a late hour? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Please take it easy and don't hurt yourself. If you kick off too soon, who will JG and I give shnit too? grin.gifgrin.gif

Yeah, the rotten ice gods of Shagawa Lake probably would like to get their hands on Maki alright. Especially to get back at him for selling us poor Ely saps all those minnows that don't catch anything but tiny Walleyes!!!!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

And no rebuttals from you Mr. G.O.!!!! Ever since I stopped buying minnows from your uncle on the west end of town, I have been eating Chicken of the Sea!!!!! shocked.gifgrin.gif

Kalli, go ahead and ask right here in front of God and everybody.

I drove by on my way to Birch on Wednesday after 8 a.m. and the doors to G.O. were locked and the lights off.

Had to buy my bait down south at a competitor's business. Figured I was so unimportant that I should have scheduled an appointment with the Great and Powerful Outdoors so I could take a couple dozen rainbows off his hands. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      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.

    • Walleye #1
        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.  
    • Walleye #1
      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.    
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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!
    • gunner55
      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 
    • Wheres_Walter
      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
