We did very well Saturday. Got on three lakes with two boats. caught about 40 walleyes collectively, most in 8 feet of water. bait of choice seemed to be rapalas. some caught on spoons, lindy rigs with minnows, crawlers, and only one hitting a leech.

Kept total of 12 walleyes from 17-19 inches, released two smaller and the rest were over 20 inches, with the biggest at 24.5 inches. Great day on the water. Great supper with the gang last night, hoping to get out for a couple hours of CPR! Brent

I took the kids, my two, and a nephew out for two hours at noon. We had a great time with the

cpr program. Total of 26 walleyes, from 16 to 18.5 inches. fishing was really fun with three kids in the boat and the fish biting like crazy. we had a total of four doubles, and had one time with all three kids having a fish at the same time! Only landed 1 of the 3! I was pretty busy driving the boat and taking fish off. A couple pics to share from today. Please note that the date on photos is wrong, and the date should ahve read 5-13-07!!

We did alright on OT, leeches were best on Saturday and minnows on Sunday.

Got my lift and dock in on Sat. morning. Then in the afternoon I launched the boat and my stearing is stuck. Tried working on it Sat. afternoon and couldn't figure out the problem.

Since it was my 7 year old son's first opener I decided to try and fish off the dock. We kept about 20 sunnies while trying to keep the bass off of our lines. At least it wasn't a total loss for him!

Wish I could have gotten on the main lake.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
