I'm going to give Circle a try. On a map it looks pretty straight forward.

Mossy, do you like pushing your boat off the trailer and winching it back on? If you go to gorman thats what your gonna have to do. Was there last night and it didn't matter how far you back in, I couldn't get the trailer wheels submerged. I heard scotch is the same way but have not had the ambition to try.

On the plus side I guess I did rinse out the exhaust on the truck!

Good luck to all!

Guppie, it doesn't bother me to push the boat of or to winch it on. I only have a little 14fter with a 9.9 motor on it, so it is light. I have been to Gorman hundreds of times and have had to do it everytime. Thanks for the heads up though.

I had hoped to be on Lura, but everyone I have talked to wants to "sleep".

I might do the same if I don't get any takers. Not much fun fishing alone.

My fishing and hunting partner I could count on moved to Florida!!!

At least now I've been having thoughts of gator hunting...

I'll have to say bed too. I'm working a 16hr shift on Friday and another 8 on Saturday morning. A disadvantage of working rotating shifts/days off. Sunday's for momma so I'll probably hit the lakes Monday and Tuesday. One advantage of working rotating days off. grin.gif

I'll be in bed also, someone always wants to look at homes that day for some reason, so work for me in the morning, hopefully by mid-afternoon will be a go for a bit.

They should just designate "Opener" as a State Holiday, just as x-mas, easter etc... Shut everything down... grin.gif

      Try the Sherburne wildlife refuge plenty of places you can get to were not a lot of people want to go the spot I deer hunt you need hip waders to get to

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

    • Walleye #1
        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.  
    • Walleye #1
      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.    
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share 
    • Wheres_Walter
      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
