Hey PikeGuy,

I haven't been out there since the week between Xmas and New Years, but when I was, I drove my pickup out there on 15", so I would assume by now it may be approaching 2'. I usually hit the SE side of the hole in the main part of the lake and try about 7FOW. Good luck and let us know how you did.

I've heard good reports from guys who fish it regularly. I talked with a guy who ranted about it after I showed him a few spots on Minnewashta. The lake is very shallow. Two holes that drop to more than 10'. Take waxies and small iceflys.

Hopefully I will be out there Saturday or Sunday. If you see a silver F150 FX4 and trap Yukon, come on over and say hi.

Good luck and keep us posted.

I'll be out there all afternoon. Gettin a late start today but hopefully you'll see my silver FX4 out there by noon. I'll touch back later and let you know.

I do plan on searching around for awhile till i find what I'm looking for. No reason to sit on dead water. With pans during the day always stay on the move till you find active fish.

After going out there today I am done fishing sunnies for the season I think. Too many. I went searching for crappies with no

luck. The sunnies are everywhere. Everyone seemed to be getting more sunnies then they could handle.

Thinking about braving the cold tommarow morning and looking for some crappies out there, talked to a buddy yesterday and he said he found some but couldn't get them to bite. I will be talking with him to see if I can steal his spot and show him hos its done-haha... Anyway if anyone is out there feel free to stop in and say hi, I'm in a clam 2000 w/ a silver ranger.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
