We were up for 4 days and did pretty well. Lindy's and leeches did pretty well, but jigs and shiners outproduced everything else. Fished in 30-40 feet most of the time, but the boat operator (who was me) was gapping out for a while and we ended up on top of Duckfoot in about 17-20 FOW and hammered 10 walleyes in about an hour near dusk. Duckfoot was the most productive (graphed fish almost constantly), the Blueberries were all pretty slow, Shelland was decent, and Greywater was alright. I would try Duckfoot first and make your way east.

Sounds like you had a better weekend than us. We were fishing west of the Brule. All of our fish came from 30 to 45 feet. Thursday and Friday were slow. Saturday my dad and I managed 7 keepers plus quite a few smaller fish. My dad picked up an 18.5 inch smallmouth Saturday also. Most of our fish came on crawlers although I did pretty well on a jig and minnow too. I'm heading back up this weekend with my G/F so hopefully thing pick up. Maybe I'll have to head further east.

Nice meeting you also Bill. Thanks for all the info and the tips on lures. I hammered them with the lindy with sharpruese the first day and had to hand a few out laugh.gif. We had a blast and we will be up again. The Rainy lake trip(s) are always my favorite.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
