Attempted that this morning, with nothing to show for it. Good luck finding shiners, they are in very short supply everywhere due to some kind of kill off up north, and with the VHS thing, importing them is not an option for the baitshops. We only got one flag and missed it, we are going to try a different area tomorrow am.

Silver Creek, and Lake Zumbro are your options in this area. Silver Lake, and the zum river below also has a few. The backwaters of the Miss are another good option

I don't know if this will help you out or not, but if you drive down to Austin, MN; find Ramsey Dam and fish there. I pulled out a nice 25 inch nothern there last summer shortly before getting deployed. Take you there are also plent of Small Mouth Bass and panfish at the same spot, but my buddy does alot of local northern fishing there. If the fishing sucks there, you can always do some Walleye fishing in ALbert Lea.

      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!
