went out last night after work 230 am till bout 630am. Nothing but sunfish couldnt keep them off leeches. Switched to fat heads never got another bite.thinkin the thirty degree temp difference in two days might have shut the walleyes down a little.

I was out on Clear today, 12-5 pm. Caught a few crappies, lots of sunfish. Crappies were in around 6' of water mixed in with the sunfish. Caught everything on wax worms.

We did get out. Didn't get to use your pointers though. We were going after the pannies first. Bites constantly but had a hard time getting them to hook. Came home with a few. Good time on that little lake. Used to more action though.

just wanted to let everyone that uses the lake that might not know. The bass are all catch and release. I'm not pointing any fingers, so if your looking to criticize me save your breath.

It used to be plainly posted at each landing. It has been this way for at least 10 years. I'd call tip if I saw anyone keeping them out there. Ignorance is no defense, but this may be a good reminder for everyone to make sure of special lake regulations when planning an outing.

Just wondering if there is any new info out there about clear Lake in Waseca? Hav been out there twice now in the last week and have gotten completely skunked. I will admit I am not the worlds best fisherman but I mean really. I have always had good luck out there in the winter and fair luck in the summer until this year. I know that there is eyes out there as my buddie and I always get a few during hard ice, but whats the best way to get them going in the summer /fall? Any help would be great, my 5 1/2 year old has really gotten into fishing theis year and I would love to get a few bigger ones for him. Thanks for any replies!!

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
