Yeah Duane...I was out there on Monday. Nothing...

Fished from 11am until 5pm. I must have drilled two-hundred holes in a 200 yard radius! I started about the same place we fished it last year. There's a permanent out there I recognized. I talked to the guy when he showed up. He had a camera and he was surprised too. The water is crystal-clear this year. (Remember how green it was last year, and how you couldn't see the bottom of the hole?) Now you can see the bottom as if you were looking into an fish tank! Not even a minnow swam by! I met a local who came by on his ATV. He lives on the lake and remembers and was out there last year too. He can't figure it out either, other than to say that there were thousands of pelicans and cormorants this summer and they may have wiped out the remaining walleye population...it's ok, I found 3 more (former) DNR walleye rearing ponds!

How's the ticker? You gonna make it, old man? wink.gif

      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!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
