I have picked up a few in the last week both times out. Found them at dusk in 5 to 9 feet on jig and minnow. It will only get better each day now. And they have been very small 12 to 14 incher's. these were on Chisago area lakes. How about you? Any action on clear seeing alot of boats out there?

Was out on Saturday morning on South Center and was pretty rough out there in the wind. Caught 3 walleyes on spinners and minnow along with 4 bass wihch we were not going for. Was out in 8-10ft, but not much action though. Hoping the colder weather may move the big ones in to the shallows soon.

Did you get out on Clear Saturday? I went to the Rum on Saturday and the fish were out in the rain did real well on small mouth best going 19" some small pike and 2 eye's. Fished Green (in chisago)last night and came up with one small eye for the effort but once the rain quit it was a nice night to be out.

Yeah, early spring, right after the opener, I was consistently catching my limit of wallyes there. By the end of June, everything just slowed and didnt catch anything. Fall time, tried a few times, didnt do so good.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
