I've been fishin the westend exclusively for 3 weeks or so now and the bite is at the least fair to midland good. Coupla days on the slow side..{see below}.. And a coupla way good banner days too. I moved off shoreline areas week and a half ago and had been on a reliable evening Wally bite on a shallow nearshore break.

These days on the more 'Perchy' multi-species areas I'm seeing an abundance of 10 to 12 inchers with a real Jumbo or 2 thrown in each day. Nice pails of Perch with some Wally and Saugs thrown in at the end of a day. I got 16 Perch over 10 inches the one day which included a 14 inch Jumbo, pile on your Walleye limit and a Sauger or 2 and you gots a darn nice bucket! Lots of sorting some days on account of abundant weeee Sauger school's coming thru making a nuisance of themselves by eating up ones bait!! Fished a Walleye spot Friday afternoon some 400-500 yards from that mixed bag spot and hoisted 35-40 fish, 10 maybe 12 or so woulda made good keepers 15+ biggest that day about 18, 1 nice Perch, and small 2 Saugs also showed up.

Busier weekend days are consistently the slower days outside of that major cold snap a bit back. Largest fish I've seen recently came off that multi species spot yesterday evening after a 'slower saturday'. Twas caught by a friend on a gold pimple.. Round 26'r or so thrown back.

I am not fishin near Bobs set-up but I would think they are on them up there too. I heard thru the rumor mill there is a good breaker out that way and folks are'nt able to get E via p/u so you may have very little truck traffic out there.

Goodluck and enjoy....fiskyknut

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
