Diamond 5/13 - 5/15

5 posts in this topic

Anyone been out on Diamond lately for crappies or 'eyes? I heard that the crappies were biting recently but am unsure exactly where. Also wondering if someone could point me in the right direction for the walleyes. Making my first trip out there of the year and would appreciate any help.

Later guys,

forgot to check for responses before we headed out...

needless to say the wind really limited our options with my little camo 14 footer w/ 9.9 johnson.

got up right before dusk on sunday night and caught a ton of perch, bass, and crappies right off the dock for about an hour...threw everything back.

got on the lake yesterday (monday) and realized I could only fish the west end because of all the wind...didn't find any walleyes. Fished the evening off the north side in about 6 feet of water...no walleyes, not even a bite.

Didn't even try this morning because of the wind...left around lunchtime.

Looking forward to memorial day weekend when we might make it up there again. I'll drop you an email a day or two before we go and touch base w/ ya. Hopefully the 'eyes will have their feed bags on in the shallows by then.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".

      What are the slop conditions looking like on area lakes?
