What's biting on Owasso, White Bear, or Bald Eagle? White Bear and Owasso have been slow but I haven't hit Bald Eagle yet. Is Bald Eagle driveable with a 1/2 ton truck?

I have been out to both WB and Owasso. Not a fish on WB but did ok on Owasso.

WB is a tough lake to fish it is very clear

I found crappies in 28 feet of water. I had tried all over between 8 feet and 22 feet prior to that and had nothing until I went way deeper. We ended up with a bunch of crappies and one walleye. Nothing big but it was certainly entertaining.

Had been having less than great luck on WB, so went to Bald Eagle this morning. Tried one likely (but out of way) spot and didn't mark a fish. Tried another near our fav summer spot, and no walleyes, but bro-in law saw a couple pike swim by on camera, and we were deeper and caught a mess of small sunnies and a couple crappies, in about 20 FOW. Nothing special. Plenty of ice for driving.

And plenty of trash out there. Holy cow, makes me embarassed to be an ice fisherman... I know it most likely isn't the folks who visit here, but I wish they would pick up after theirselves. We picked up a bunch of beer and Dew bottles on way in.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      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!
