Saturday and Sunday were both pretty good. Hair jigs, plastics & blades were all putting fish in the boat. Just keep trying different colors until you find one that works. We caught most of ours up by the dam vertical, but we also picked up some nicer sauger dragging plastics Saturday evening. There were quite a few boats down below the Y both days so I assume that area is producing as well.

Try fishing below the Y on the wisc. side. Pitching red w/white tail ring worms on the clam bed. Picked up some nice walleyes on Sat.

Where exactly are the clam beds? Above the green can at the wing dam on the Vermilliom mouth or below it?

There are several clams beds on the Wisconsin side from the rollerdam on down. Just below the Y until you get even with the green bouy on the Wisconsin side is a community spot that holds walleyes. As the river gets lower this winter you will start to see some of the beds. Just remember the locations or GPS them. The clam beds indicate the presence of current seams and breaks more than anything.

      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!
