eyes??

I tried live bait rigging on Tetonka yesterday from 5 to 8 PM. Marked very few fish; used crawlers and got 2 of the biggest "bullies" I've ever caught, multiple sheepies, and 1 decent northern. It was a very pleasant evening on the water, and only a few other boats out there. I was surprised at the lack of "greeness", since in past years the scum would clog the eyes and reel up; and you'd have to wash it off your boat when you returned home.

I don't know why the lake is not green, but I like it. If the spraying of curly pond weed is the ansawer, great. If it was the lack of snow and the weeds grew all winter and died early better yet. Last night we went drifting on the pontoon. I started casting a rapala and caught 2 15" eyes up in 4' of water over green weeds. I will be back at it friday night. cool.gif

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
