Went out on an area lake, got my house out and fished at the top of a break with a change in bottom structure and against a weedline. Didn't do as well as I thought I was going to but I did manage to pick up a couple 15"-16" waldo's and a couple crappies. Also a couple bass and a few snakes. The house was in 13 FOW we caught the eyes on a tip up 10 feet out our door in 19 feet of water. That was Wednesday night the day of that rugged front that moved on through. Hopefully it'll get better this weekend. I will post again on Monday.

Good to hear from you again Leech....I figured the fishing must have been really good for you, since we haven't heard from you lately.

You always seem to catch fish, I think I need to tag along with you sometime and see just what the hell it is that I'm doing wrong.

Keep us posted man, I like reading your result posts....just wish you would tell us where it is that you fish. grin.gif

Well after a long weekend battle with Strep Throat I made it out again last night. I've had my fish house out for a while now and I've only fished it 3 times. My Bro's have fished it dry I think HA HA!!! In the last week or so they have been doing really well with 4 or 5 over 23" and lot's of eaters in the 14 - 16" size. Not much for Crappies yet. My dad has been probing the depths for pannies but has yet to score anything, and he fishes harder than anyone I know. But anyways last night I caught about 7 or 8 snakes and a few bass from 2:00 to when the sun hit the trees. After that I missed two half way up to the hole. Not sure what they were but felt like walleyes, 10 minutes later my brother pulls in a BEAUTY.... a nice fat 28 1/2" walleye. He saw it on his flasher for a while but couldn't get it to bite. He switched to a little crappie minnow thinkin it was a crappie and finally THUMP..... the rest is history. He's gonna put it on his wall. Don't blame him I think I would too. I havn't figured out if I'm envious or jealous yet HA HA.. I will post again this week because with this weather I definately have to go out again.

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.

      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.
