Fishing this past weekend out that way was quite good both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was fast and furious and the entire group got mass numbers. Sunday a tad tougher but still darn good #'s of fishes.

I'd bet you'll slay 'em! We were about 75 yards from one of Arnesons huts and if they put you in that one you are gonna be busy all day!

I was at Arnesens 3/8 - 3/10.

We fished in the same house all 3 days and it was due west off of Gull Rock in 29 ft.

Best LOW trip I have ever had by far.

We brought home limits of walleye, almost limits of sauger, 10 perch; and had a meal one night up there.

There were 5 of us(2 adults and 3 boys that were all 11 years old).

Only 2 over 20 inches, one of which my son got that was 25.5 inches. His biggest walleye to date.

Thursday we got roughly 50 fish, and kept 24 total. Size was small(saugs were 12-13 and wallys were 13+). Nothing over 14 inches except the 25.5.

Friday was a tad slower on numbers, but size went up nicely. We caught 40 to 45 fish and kept 26. Saugs were 14+ on the keepers, and the wallys averaged close to 15 inches. Got one sauger at 17.5 inches.

Saturday we fished 8am to noon. Very slow except for the first 30 minutes basically. We got wallys to fill limits for home, and came up 2 shy on limits for sauger for home. We iced about 15 fish total.

Best colors were glow red, and even glow pink.

Secondary choice on color is tough. Friday we caught fish on the entire spectrum of colors. If we didnt have any bites for a period of time, just one person had to change to something completely different, and on several occasions it would catch fish within minutes of hitting the bottom.

Red, pink, gold, silver, green, chartreuse, black, blue....

Change often. If you think you are changing too often, increase the frequency of changing even more. Seriously, it worked.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
