Fished for eyes from 6:00 to 8:30 this morning in 20 fow. Lots of lookers, but not one taker. Moved out to 38 fow and marked fish but they weren't biting good at all and the ones I did catch were the smallest crappies I have ever caught on the river. Moved to 28 fow to try something different. Caught two small mouth, one 16 inches, the other 17, and an 11 inch perch that was shaped like a football. Fished until 2. Fun catchin the bass but a bad day for walleye and crappies. Anyone else have any luck?

UWLeagle-- Fished the high lines from 7:00 til noon, one 9.5" crappie. Plenty of lookers. The bite seems to have cooled down in the last 2 weeks.

Hopefully it picks up again soon. If this keeps up at this pace I might have to try a new lake.

Hey Jake you going to be out Friday morning? I am planning on being out there and set up by 6am. Blue is coming out to join me later in the day. I am wondering where you ran into those drifts that you got stuck in. I haven't been on the river in about three weeks and don't remember any drifts. Just don't want any problems as I am heading across from MN side in the dark. How did you do out there today? See you on Friday.

I am thinkin I should be able to make it out there early Friday morning. I was out there today and the drifts werent bad at all. The one I got stuck in was the only bad one I could see. Just make sure you are in someones tracks and dont try to plow through new ones cuz thats what got me stuck. Did terrible today. Read my new post. Hopefully the fishing will pick up with the nicer weather coming. Shoot me an email with your phone number and I'll give ya a call tomorrow night to make plans if you want. jheuston@hotmail.com

Course we all know fishermen are liars, "Nope, I have never caught a thing on the river. Far as I'm concerned I ciould fish out of my bathtub at home and catch more fish." Yep, and the beat goes on.............:)

Hey tunrevir, I usually do better in the toilet than the tub, it has more structure \:\)

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.
