Hey Stu

Stu,

I think I'm coming up there this weekend. Regardless of me, then my dad and brother will be around for sure. Are the reports still Red hot? Weather looks good- should be a great weekend for some kitty hunting.

Scoot, sorry for the late response, I've been busy!

I wouldn't call the action fast & furious, however the river is producing nothing but quality kitties!

The night bite is the ticket right now, this is due the warm water temps. As August rolls alaong and water temps continue to drop, the action will only continue to improve.

Currently, water temps are 73 degree's, last week they were 79 degree's!

Stu, my brother, father, mother, and a couple friends went up. They did ok- caught some fish, but not a lot. They struggled until they threw corks up really shallow near the dam- like you suggested, they caught some very nice fish doing that.

I hope to see you this October!

Scoot: I long lined by that flat area last evening from about 7:30 til 9PM and the tally was 6 boated with a few lost. ALL were fat and slammed the bait. That is a nice area isn't it. If only we can get that metal bar out of the river now. I am sure we will.

To me the kitties seem to be fall fish, all fat and putting on the feed bag.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
