I agree with Harvey Lee, but apparently we can't give out any information about the walleye bite according to some people. Luckily, that's not how I roll! Try it towards evening casting a #5 deep runner rap orange combinations to shore. Good luck! tuk

I dont think anyone has a problem with giving out bait and tackle info or the depth of water.

The reason people get upset with to much info like the exact gps location of the bite is that can do alot of harm to the fishery.Some lakes can recieve so much pressure from location it will do some harm.

There are alot of members that read these posts along with many that are not members.

Keep up the good posting and have a great fall fishing.

My experience with these swminn lakes is when they are on, It could just as well be printed in the tribune!! Plenty of people know! And for the most part you are catching stocked fish! Some would like it to be there private pond! But its there for ALL to enjoy.My opinion is the fish gods will smile on you if you help when you can! cool.gif

Saturday would be the day to go, according to the weather forecast. I'll bet they shut down on Sunday after the front moves through.

Too bad I'm stuck home with the kids this weekend. I seem to be stuck at home a lot lately. Gotta figure out a way to get "un-stuck". grin.gif

You know, that'd prolly work with the two older ones (ages 4 and 12), but I don't think the 3 month old would get along very well with just bread, hotdogs, and her two older brothers. grin.gif

Caught some nice walleyes pitching a beetle spin (chartruse/green) tipped with a small piece of crawler along the shoreline east of the county park on the south side of the lake starting at the rocky point and working eastward. caught most of them right before sundown and one after dark at about 9:30 pm.

pretty good storms around there last night, wonder if that screwed it up?!?!?! I was reffing in Slayton and we almost stopped that game several times due to lightening off to the North...

Any one been out lately? Depending on the weather I'll either be duck hunting or fishing. If it's windy and crappy I'll try to shoot some ducks. If it's nice out I'll put the boat on Sarah and troll around a bit.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
