I caught one walleye all season, on Minnetonka.... Unfortunately it was smaller than my middle finger so I had to let him go. I've never seen a walleye that small before. We had sucker minnows with us that were nearly twice the size of the walleye. In fact, the crappie minnow the walleye bit on was almost half his size.

I have had luck on Buffalo and Pelican, but nothing to brag about for at least the past month.

Fishing has slowed on Buffalo. You can still get crappies, but you need to sort more if you want bigger fish. I have talked with about 100 guys nobody has caught a single wayeye this winter. Many ask Where did the small eyes from last year go?

Caught crappies last weekend on Buffalo as fast as I could drop a minnow in the water....this weekend, same spot, same bait, same hook, no fish! Going back out there tomorrow.

I hadn't been skunked all year. Got skunked last Friday night on Pelican (didn't get on the lake until after 8:30pm though), and also got skunked the next morning on Buffalo during the tourney. Saw plenty of fish but nothing liked my bait presentation enough to bite. Tried crappie minnow on a glow jig, and euro larva on a goofy minnow style jig. Also had tip-ups setup. Frustrating. Had a good time regardless.

I have to agree with Doom... All those small buffalo walleyes went into the buckets!

However there has been a local lake that started putting out some 14-17" eyes this week for me.

Too bad the DNR won't extend the season another week.

I think most people would agree that nice fat 14 - 17 " fish are not too small, but perfect for eating!

Nothing small about 14-17" eyes in my book! Good eaters and fight good on 4# and a meatstick!

Hope you guys didn't take it as I was being a A%^Hole.

Good Fishing to each of you.

Heres my report.

Pleasant was terrible, Cedar was terrible, and Pelican was terrible.

Did however manage a nice 36 1/4 pike on a local lake on the last day of the season. Tip-up with a dead smelt.

No- Me and him and a couple others hit a different lake on Sunday. They got a 35" pike before I got out there. We did get a few nice fish on Saturday out there. 7.3 Pike Won the contest. 28.5" Walleye was caught 15 minutes after the contest was over. That thing hit a 6" sucker minnow in 5' of water.

Clearwater lake- Was out there on Sunday and you could see open water on the ne side of the main island. Didn't even look close the narrows on the north. Just up by shore it was open for a good section. Be careful out there.
