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 .

Hey Jim I've been spending every weekend on the river (St Croix) and have been boating a good number of fish, mainly walleye. Next month is the family fishing trip to the Whitefish Chain should be another great time with the fishing addicts I call brothers and mom and dad.

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.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.
