G-spot

Weather looks to be a big factor this weekend.
Eyes have been on a feeding frenzy, find the bait fish and you find lots of catchable eyes. One problem, lots of fish over slot, but lots of fun.
Lead head jigs with minnow still the best bet, tri-color, black or gold and silver all seem to work.

Recent reports are they are catching slot walleyes and smaller fish in deeper water, depths from 22' to 35'. Evenings they are still catching bigger fish of the docks and shallow windswepth shores. good luck, guts

You may keep fish from 13" to 17" and one fish over 23". All others must be released immediatly. Also you cannot have fillets, fish must be "in the whole" with heads attached. Each year we have seen folks get ticketed on memorial day weekend as they come off the water when checked by the DNR. Not a fun way to end your weekend.
In years past almost every boat/cooler was checked at the Ash River landing after loading up by the DNR on monday.

G I was on the water last night. The water temp has warmed to 55- 56 degress. That's about 10 degrees since opener. Caught lots of fish over the slot in the shallow water. Pitching jigs in 6-7 feet of water. Mostly spawned out females. Earlier in the week, fished jigs and minnows in deep water 40 ft. during the day and moved up into the 20's towards evening and caught lots of small fish and kept 16 in the slot. Right now it seems that deep small and slots and shallow fun fish that are too big. good luck Fishkab

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      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!
