Thx Auqa...I just spoke With Dave Genz. he said it's high but dropping. BTW He was releasing a 18 1/2" Smallie when I called.

Hope to hook up with you & your son this trip. Mamma (DA BOSS) is coming up with me and she made it clear....NO WORK.
So maybe I can fish more!

Sounds good, I assume Dennis knows how and where to find you.

And I am also certain that that RiverPro of his can handle just about as many cold ones as we think we can carry! WE'LL have one on ice for YOU.

Haven't been out to Monticello lately, but a couple of the tribs are up at least 18" over normal.

Nice to meet you yesterday Kevin,...we did end up finding a few more fish yesterday afternoon, needed to spend some time in the shade and it turns out so did the smallies!

How did you and Chris do yesterday after you went out?

Nice to meet all of you guys! Kevin, Chris, Grabs & ....Grollo? Sorry if I botched the name. Kevin - I'm still taken aback by the Old Man Of The River's attitude!!

Kids got into some more little cats, the kids on the pier were found by a school of Rock Bass and I didn't get skunked after all - one nice 2-3lb. eater. Yum.

Dennis, I was just ribbin' ya at first, but the bite did pick up after you split wink.gif
Wife & wee ones are outta town all weekend, so I think I'm gonna do some serious road-side dam fishing Saturday. Start up in Royalton and work my way south back to Montissippi. No crawler-onna-bottom this time - I'm huntin' smallie-n-wally.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!
