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.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
