Good day to all. Our week long fishing adventure was awesome. Fishing was a bit slow, however, the weather was awesome. The walleye bite was tough all week but as we spent a few more hours at it we kind of figured some patterns out. The walleyes are feeding on pearch minnows and crawfish up in the shallows. Alot of nice size walleyes (along with some limits of keepers) came from the south side of sugarbush island working with long stick baits. set yourself in the shallow water and just cast away-you will get the walleyes along with some nice pike. For the smallies, try working the east side of pine island-many nice sizers were caught. Try this area too for walleyes with cranks again. I was using a #2 mepps firetiger/yellow tail for the smallies. Northerns at time where hitting this lure at the same. Another great location to work all times of the day is lower reef. Work this area with a bottom bounce and a "owner snell" its basically just a red hook tipped with a glow beed and a minnow. In two hours we pulled up some really nice sauger and some dandy perch. Good luck to all fishing should be picking up soon!

I am familiar with everything you said, but what are you referring to as lower reef, is that by chance center reef, due east of fin island?
I also totally agree with you on the owner snells they are the best. This year they also came out with a two hook crawler rig for those who like mulptible hook systems.

Glad you did fairly well, and thanks for sharing the information. guts <{{{{{><

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
