This shallow tiny itsy bitsy body of water doesn't take pressure, weather changes, or hip hop music very well.

I haven't fished it in [Contact Us Regarding This Duration] years, but I did have multiple outings of numerous [Contact Us Regarding This Species] that were [Contact Us Regarding This Length].

The best bait seemed to be a [Contact Us Regarding This Lure] tipped with a white [Contact Us Regarding This Bait].

That's all I know.

There's a lot better panfish lakes right now that are giving up fish then Rock.

Here's an exaple from Wilkens last Sunday.

We pounded the fish by the by.

sure,

the break straight out from the beach has given up a few. The one to the left for the 1st 300 yards has been good.

All the way across the lake by the big pines has given up a few.The north end has been tuff & so has the south end.

Do ya need a guide????With a H2O that has 60 waypoints of were the fish are?

You spinning your wheels getting there too early.7 is early enough.

Nothing else stop by & I'll draw you maps.

I should mention I'm trolling 1.3-1.5 mph in 9-11 FOW on the break.

They move back and forth frequently so keep your eye on the locator.The breaks are fast so you could be in 20 FOW pretty fast if you don't.

If you come into town stop at the Spur station and ask where I live.I'm 2 blocks from the store over by the elementary school.410 Wright St.

There was only 1 guy out there with a dog.Was that you Dale.

We caught 4 small ones.

Here's a sample. Picture009.jpg

All of the mayflies are gone so they should be triggering on minnows. There were several crayfish in the live well that were expelled.

Orange may be a better color that white on the head & or body.

Hey Dale we have sidetracked this post.Let's move over to the Round thread.

I have not heard of much from Rock.

I know with the heat everything is headed for deeper water .The weed patches are formed so I'd go to your summer patterns.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
