Sunday 4:30-6:30
One lousy 5" perch. What a way to end the season.

Hit Clearwater this afternoon. No eyes unfortunately, but a limit of 10" craps in 3 hours. Couple of nice schools hung around suspended up 8-12 feet in 35 fow. Nothing on the bottom. Hot bite at 5:45pm. Small jigs/small minnows. Plain hook also did the trick.

5 eyes and 3 northerns on Cedar on Friday and Saturday. 9 northern on Ida on Saturday morning, all about the size of a pan size walleye. Nothing on Sunday except small perch.

Was out on Cedar yesterday afternoon/evening on the north end and didn't catch a thing except for a slight buzz. Almost had the Clam catch fire when my lantern was acting up on me. It must have got really cold in the garage and the gas dial wouldn't work right. First it wouldn't put out any gas and then it after I got it lit it started burning really hot and some flames were coming out of the top and it stunk really bad. Then I went to shut it off and then it wouldn't shut off. If somebody would have seen me they would've got a laught out of it, because I know I would've. Seeing some guy fly out of the his Clam with a flaming lantern in one hand and a beer in the other trying not to tip either of them and not to catch fire to the canvas on the way out. I got a laugh out of it at least if anyone else didn't have the pleasure to see it.
I guess it's crappie time for now for a while.

Yeah that was me in the blue Clam with a Grey Tahoe. I pulled in around 3:30 and the "flash" you saw should've been around 5:30 or so. Were you driving the white silverado or the ford with the green eskimo? I had my door set up facing the other way (facing my truck), so you couldn't have had the pleasure of seeing me juggling the flaming lantern and a beer while trying to get out of the zippered doorway, but you definitely could've seen the "flash of light" after I got out of the house if you were over to the East of me more towards the park. Is this your normal spot that you hammer 'em at Bobberboy?

MG-Fishn' were you out in front of the park? around 3:30? I thought I seen a flash over in that direction last evening.

No actually it's a Coleman lantern. It's never done that before so I'm not sure if it was just really cold or what. If the same problem occurs again I'll have to take a look at it a little closer so we don't burn the Clam down to the ice.

I had the Black Ford. That area around the bar had been very good to me the last couple weeks. My son turned me on to Cedar and suggested that I try that area. As I said I didn't do for #$%& on Sunday but had good fishing there 5 out of 7 times.

I have never fished that area before Sunday but it looked like a prime spot on the map and decided to go for it. Usually when I'm up that way I hit either Sugar or Millstone. I thought I'd try somewhere else for the last day of the season. That cold front that came through last weekend had to have shut them down. Take care Bobberboy and I'm sure I'll see you out there again. If you smell the canvas on the Clam melting next time, that means I probably had some more lantern problems. Come one over with a bucket of water!

MG-Fishin,
How did you do on Sugar? I was out on those mid-lake humps 2 or 3 time and never managed anything more than a few small perch. I also fished about a 1/4 mile from the North landing on the north shore in the first little bay and never seen a thing.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
    • curt quesnell
      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos
    • certified jumbo
      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.
