Primetime, Did you notice where the boats were located on the lake? From what you wrote did you have enough walleyes for a fish fry? The last time I fished Norway or Games at nite this late in the summer I caught Iowa walleyes. (bullheads) wink.gif Looking forward to the frog run, walleyes in 12inches of water. I would come bug you but I would be knocking on every door around the lake. If you see Jiggin Jim's guide boat out on the lake swing by, we can swap stories.

Hello Walli1, how you been doing? I have been hitting the water hard lately. Took my wife to green lake, She fishes only 1-2 days a year, She caught a 20" smallie, along with walleyes and about 4 other species of fish. You been on the river lately? Fishing up at the ford dam is good early and late in the day. This fall we should go hit Red Wing in Nov. after deer hunting. I figure shot a doe early and fish late. Take care .

Jiggin the walleyes are going on in front of the Benjamin Franklin Smith cabin{the green one on north shore north of the bar.their are only 5 or 6 places on this side of lake so should be able to find.Kinda of a big area 150 yards out where weed growth opens up to allow some anchored bobbers or edgeline jigging.12 to 15 feet deepYou have to shut everything down and actually sit still and silent.They taste like they havent been spooked and there have been severalboats out there all week.

eyewarrior.its just that Games has been so underfished this year.Dont think they taste any different.I have not seen any boats when compared to normal years.Doubt these fish have seen any bait passed in front of them since opening of season.Its pretty tough going between Games and Little Norway so bring an oar or push stick to help with this.

Yep on Mille PWT. I'll give a full report at Anglers mtg this month. In short wind-rocks, calm-deep cranks. Plenty of SM bass on Myr-Myr rocks. I'll be up again this weekend with 2 bro's trying to get them eyes.

How did people do on Games this weekend? I saw several boats sitting in front of the Smith cabin during the day, but not at night. The hump in the middle was also getting pounded during the day. I didn't do any fishing this weekend, but plan on it for the upcoming holiday.

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.
