This is a great way to spend a Saturday. I went last year well worth the money and for a very worthy cause. Great door prize's and some really good stuff for silent auction too. Hope to see many of you there. Check out the website for additional information.

Thanks Pherris!
We were very pleased with how things turned out last year. This year were hoping to do even better. I personally am stoked for the shore lunch. Hope to see lots of FM'ers there.

I have been told that if you do not have your reservation in you can still call Ken Lundquist at 612 724-2098 by Thursday the 27th and then pay at the door the day of the event (March 1st).

Why the new name?.... Anyway, it was a good time. The turnout was a little small; but the speakers were good and the lunch was good. And the people who did come were inundated with prizes. I absolutely guarantee everyone who came went home with something and many went home with stuff worth more than the price of admission. Next year you got to go. Thanks for asking. And thanks to Opie and Pherris and any other FM'rs that came!

Hate to say I told ya so but you missed a great event. I will make enough money selling stuff to my friends from the tips I got to pay for the really cool limited edition picture I won at the silent auction. And if you want to know where you will find walleye's in stocked lakes you will just have to go next year. grin.gif

I now know how to "handline" walleyes with a baitcasting set-up thanks to Perry Good. And I know where to fish walleyes on Winnie away from the crowds thanks to Terry Hagstrom. And I got dozens of other tips I'm planning on using this year. I am totally biased but this seminar is a steal compared to 'Walleye University' and other big time seminars that cost $400 to attend or more. Folks should really check this out next year.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
