Was out last night starting my pre fishing for the first night eye torny in MN.got out to the lake at about 7:30 and started my hunt got 4 eyes 17 to 19. 3 drum and a white bass. was looking like it was going to be a great night of fishing I had just got a drum and it was getting a little dark and i hadent put my light up in the back yet. so i put the light up turn it on were good to go. well i started to troll along the area i was working. i look over and my light is not on (funny it was just working) as im looking at it i pull the bulb out and poff its a milion bits of glass. night cut short due to no light. looked like the eyes were snapping in about a 30 yard area i was trolling. speed was 3 mph 2.7 to 3.3. i wish i could have stayed out for an hour or 2 more to cast to this area but luck sent me home.

hope to get out next wed and try it again. i need to find a pattern in there movements. anyone else have any luck with eyes?

I went to Tetonka last Saturday. There were to many boats with there Elec, bow mount motors in my way. So I sliped over to Frances. I found a nice weedline around 80 yards long in 11 FOW. We had a good time with bass and eyes.

Went to another lake Sunday. We sat on top of a school of small Crappies and Blue gills. WOW! the school at times was so thick it had a grayline. We took 13 slab Crappies. If we cought small crappies we would step up a size untill the slabs would hit,once we had that down we would do the same thing with another bait. Blue and sliver castmaster 3"long and small countdown Raps were the Best. THey would hit it on the fall.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
