Tom,

I'd be interested to hear how the landing was also. I have tomorrow off and since i looks like its gonna be nice, I was planning on taking my 4 year old over and shore-fish Chub, but if i could get my boat in I'd rather do that so I could look for some nice gills or crappie. I've got a 17' lund and roller trailer. The lake has been so low the last 2 years that i quit even trying to put in there with my boat. Thanks for any update smile.gif

PS: Say HI to Deb and Austin from Chris, Caroline and Dylan (she'll know who this is grin.gif) and have her tell her sister & brother-in-law to stop by sometime!

Thanks for the info Tom, still looks like they are predicting a nice day tomorrow so I think we'll head over there in the morning. Not sure I can get Dylan to cast spinnerbaits with the "Tweety" pole but maybe I can cast a few docks while he throws a bobber/worm grin.gif

The best was right in front of the landing to the right as you leave the dock and the the shore line the was no fish at the dock's worm's worked in the deeper water next to the weed's we did great to day a lot of big bass I think we did about 35 today what a great day. Hope you can get out smirk.gif good fishing.

Some nice bass. The reason is because the lake was not fished hard except for those that knew the lake. Hope yor post does not change that. Thats a small lake for any kind of pressure. Hope everbody does C/R.>>>later the load

Load that lake has been hit hard for years and years. Heck I fished it at 3 years old and there was more pressure back then than I have seen in the recent years. The reason the bass (Yuck) are in there is due to the stocking years back and they are finally of decent size. Nobody in there right mind eats those bucketmouths anyways. tongue.gif

In my opinion those bucketmouths could be weeded out a bit and let the Crappie, gill and eye numbers develope a bit.

This is Mn. after all. blush.gif

Bass are a nice option for when the walleyes are slow. It seems like Bass are always biting.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
