We we're up, and the fishing was slow. 11 fish between 4 guys in 2.5 days of fishing. Ended up with one 12lb 5 oz 31 incher, anther around 30 and 11+lbs, 3 over 28, 3 in the 26 range, and 3 in the 20-23 inch range. It was a tough bite with fish being marked, but it was tough to get them to bite. Ice was good at around a foot.

Thanks for the report, Peter. Sounds like the quantity wasn't quite what you'd hoped for, but the quality was definitely there!

Got some buddies heading up the 29th. Will let you know how they do there Scoot. You plan on a trip up this winter. Would love to find someone interested in hitting the Red around here and hitting a few of my honey holes. But we need a way to get around.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
