Ralph nice cat,I now have seen the extra large northern at Games Henchun creek several times and so have many others.

Aguy and his special gal made our day when without much coxing she would put on her waders and walk on side of creek down to Henchun and back through streama nd give us a glimpse of many northern walleye carp etc.

In return we kept throwing nice suunies from pier into their bucket.

Saturday stopped by and many buckets were filled with good eater sunnies.

Crappies were starting to come in.

Sparcebag,

We had 12 keepers and THREW BACK anything over 20 and a couple small ones. I have your number now and I'll try to get you out there with me. I've been pretty busy that it's even kept me from being out since. We were using a lindy rig and a leech.

Forget the walleyes...we've been fishing cats on the mississippi--actually just got done a little bit ago--nailing the 5 to 10lbers, especially between 10:30p and 12:00a using chicken livers. Nothing like a beautiful night, a campfire (we cooked trout in tinfoil--mmmmmmmm!) and a tight line every few minutes. What a blast. Oh and the beers weren't bad either smile.gif

I might get out for walleyes again in a couple weeks but we'll have to see.

good luck to all fishermen this weekend...I'm going to bed now and sleeping until we have to be at the field tomorrow for our 1:30pm game!

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
