Iwas wonderin the same thing, cause I'm headin up their from the 18th-22. wdgold how did you do? We'er headin up for a family thing and stayin on Cross. I'm the only serious fisherman outta the bunch, but they always want to go out. And they expect me to find the fish for them! I've been on these lakes alot at a buddies cabin, but we usually just drink all day and night. Or maybe some of you local guys could steer me in the right direction? I'm a very respectful fisherman and I'm not lookin for anything to specific, just what lakes and depths to be searchin. I love chasin 'eyes, but panfish info would be great to. Thanx.

P.s. I just broke my hand and got a cast up to my elbow. Hopefully they are bitin on a jiggin pattern, cause that is about all I'll be able to do!

I am also with you guys, will be staying on upper whitefish this weekend. Can any one help us? I am looking for some general walleye tips, specifically depth and structure. I usually don't have a problem with the Bass and Pike, but those Walleyes are tough. In the past I have caught them mostly right at sunset and after dark. Just wondering if daytime walleye fishing will be worth my time.

One of our guides was up there this a.m. and did fairly well. He said they ended up keeping 9 walleyes and caught quite a few northerns. I have been on Gull about everyday, so I didn't even ask where or what depth. I am 99% ceratin he was rigging with redtails. If I had to guess, I would say Upper in 18-22 feet.

Good luck,

Walleyedan

      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.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
