They're not hatching already are they? If there's a bug hatch you sure it isn't fish flies and not may flies?

A buddy of mine came down 169 Mon. night and his car was totaly coated with bugs. Said he hit clouds around Garrison and again by the casino access.

Fished till dark last night (Weds), the wind layed down after the rain and the lake became loaded with larva and the small and medium size flies. Spent this morning cleaning the boat, never buy a white boat! Bite was OK, but not as good as it has been, with the longer snells working best. Fished out of Garrison and some of the closer mud.

No May Flies yet but there was a hatch of Fish Flies. The east side of the lake hasn't seen them yet because east winds the past week.

Fish On!!!

I just came around the north end of the lake from 169 it Isle at 3:30 today (Friday). Looked like a semi with a bad burn due to the clouds of mayflies above the highway. The public launch about 3 miles east of 169 had a sliok that went out 6 feet yesterday.

Does this change the fishing success cause we didn't see more than 3 fish caught between 9 and 1:30 today between the Garrison ramp the Myr Mar

How do you get them off the truck? Bug juice at the gas station didn't touch them.

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
