Two weeks my man. Give it two more weeks. Those fish that spawn on the points and feeder creek deltas in the lake will be putting the feed bag on shortly.

Thanks Tom.

It's one of my Dads favorite spots and since he's somewhat computer illiterate,I told him I'd put the question out.I knew I could count on you.

A neighbor went down to Lake City this morning to shorefish. The word is all small so far, but then its still early.

Years ago I fished just north of lake city. I believe it was one or two turns before you get into the city. I fished a little backwater area where the road crosses the backwater channel. There was alittle bridge there.

Say tons of northerns and several massive crappies. Just wondering when is the best time to hit that area again.

Hopefully someone knows where I am talking about. I might come down on Saturday to give it a shot. What is the regulations on what you can keep in that backwater area? Can you keep anything but panfish?

With the water levels decent now the backwaters should be firing up pretty quick. Along with the toothies and the crappies/sunfish, you can keep the waldos and sauger you catch year round, but I'm not certain on the bass as I do not fish them much.

Are there any good spots to try other than the spot I mentioned in my previous post? Do you know where i am talking about in that post? Any new reports?

This is my second time down to fish the backwater first being this winter down by wabasha, didn't catch much that time but am looking to improve on my luck.

I have not been to the backwaters of late, but some other sources with good repute are saying they are quiet in the Wabasha area. They should be heating up pretty quick.

Was on the the lake looking for smallies the other day and it was pretty slow. Caught 4 and that was it. Water temps were around 60 in the marinas.

Fished the Redwing dam area Saturday afternoon. The dam was open so the current was pretty wild. Boat control was out of the question. Probably should have spent more time away from there looking for current breaks in calmer waters. Oh, and it was windy. Really windy..

On the way, Pepin looked like a mad sea.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
