Yeah! I noticed the same thing. I think it is probably from the big fire. Is the wind from the North???

If you look at the National Weather Service Lacrosse website, they have a satellite map showing the smoke drifting into our area.

Funny thing is that I went up to the cities tonight, and no sign of smoke. The air currents must have moved right through the Rochester area.

All the smoke in the area was from a couple of barns that burned to the ground right outside of Pine Island.

Those two barns could not of produced that much smoke to fill that big of an area. Plus the amount of smoke that they did put off would not of lingerd around that long.

DT....Maybe it's time to take off the tinted sunglasses? Get yourself a nice pair of those rose colored ones they talk about.

Today everyone is fishing and I'm working....but, I'm getting caught up and during the week, when everyone else is working, I'm going fishing....got a tip on a good crappie spot.

All the smoke and haze Friday was from the Ham Lake (boundary waters) fire as mentioned earlier.

Just fyi.

It's strange to think of smoke being able to make it all the way down here, but with the right wind...

Last year we had a smoky haze from fires that were burning all the way up in northern Alberta. That was crazy.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
