We stayed at Dickies over the weekend and had a fun time (it was a slow bite). Caught some small perch and thats about all we saw on the camera below the house. We were portable on Friday and caught a couple jumbo's, a couple of the guys were portable Saturday morning and caught a few jumbos.

It was packed up at the bar at Hunters Point on Saturday for the Arctic Blast. Most of our group was up there all day expect for a few of us.......I finally stopped in for a beer after not catching anything but a few small perch all day. That place was packed.

Near white out conditions at times Saturday night.....very windy and cold. Two of the vehicles in our group would not start Sunday morning. -15* (actual temp) when we pulled off the lake around 11:00am.

Only thing we saw on the camera other then crayfish (a bunch of 2-3" perch): Picture022_small.jpg

Cold and windy Sunday morning:

Myself and 4 others were out on sunday and managed to keep a few jumbos! Put the camera's down and there are Perch every where but man they would not take anything. We threw the box at them, bait presentations and just could not keep them interested long enough to bite. It was brutal out there this weekend but it was still a blast!

Saturday the bite was good with 2 of us catching 21 jumbos. At about 12:30 we had a good school come in and caught 8 in a row as fast as we could get our lines down. From then till we left Sunday it really got slow with only 4 more caught. Don't usually see to many eyes but Sunday am we saw a bunch on the camera (would not bite)and not to many perch. Not sure if it was the weather or the eyes but perch fishing was the slowest we have seen this winter on Sunday.

The weather was brutal. Just trying to gas up the generator was a challenge. At times I could not see my truck that was parked a few feet from my house.

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      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)
