Hey Jim-

I was just wondering if you know if there is current between Long and Dollar Island? Do I dare drive my truck through there? Thinking about trying it out there sometime-looks like a good spot to fish.

Yo, Justin

No current between Long and Dollar Islands, so you can drive your truck, but keep going because it's not that good of a spot. frown.gif

Jim,

Thanks for the info there, old Burntside guru!! smirk.gif Well, the working world is just not what is cracked up to be. I would much rather be out the chasing the fish around! Well, if the weather lets up Saturday and is nice on Sunday, I think I will go out to Burntside and do some more chasing. I will stop by and discuss strategy Sunday am. I really hope this snow misses us- so far so good!

Later,

Justin

Feel like having some more company on Sunday. Got a few more places I'd like to try. Between your vexilar and my camera, we can see what what those little rascals are doing to stick it to us grin.gif

Maybe you could lead the way out in your plow truck?? I would love to get out there and CRUSH some of those lakers!!! The weather is going to clear and it is going to be nice- 31 degrees!!

Justin,

What time are you going out on Sunday if you go? I'm undecided if I'm going Sunday or not but good chance I will. I will have same truck and trailer as last Wed. It sounds like it will be 30 or so, but maybe some wind.

Justin,

If I come up I'll be there in the morning and usually stay until 4 or 4:30. I'll probably go where I was the other day, west of waters island on that reef goes east of the little island, close to where you go into school section bay. Sled is a blue polaris and house is green.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
