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!!

fishking, that is awesome. I am only 12 at heart, so can I come with next time?

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.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
