Thanks for the ifo. Jeremiah! My brother goes to school up there and he hunts different areas but he was down here for opener. We like to go up there towards the end of October, because usually by then, there are great numbers of divers that have moved into the area. Well we will see how it goes in a couple of weeks. Good luck the rest of the season!

I havnt been out since last monday, we shot ringnecks and thats it. The nubmers are starting to dwindle. My friends did really well after the 1st cold front, the limited out on ringnecks in 1.5hrs, but that was last Thursday the 12th. Im going to head out again this week and i'll be able to tell you some more hopefully good news!

I just spent three days around lake wabedo, grouse hunting and duck hunting on the beaver dams, we saw 3 ducks in three days of hunting, didn't get a single one. Saw absolutely nothing in the air for three days.....

      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.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!

      maybe he didn't see the question yet? google is your friend. this one sounds like its for vets that are at the VA.  not sure. Check out Take a Vet Fishing online.  couple events coming up. not by Duluth tho.
