Fished Basswood (Pipestone) last weekend and will be there again this weekend. Last weekend, surface temp was 61 degrees. Walleyes seem to have scattered well out into the main parts of the lake, although I didnt find any on the tops of the reefs yet. Mostly in the usual places on the windblown shorelines at depths of 7 - 12 ft.

Northern pike action was good, with big fish being relatively easy to find.

Was up to Basswood 18-21st...had about every type of weather possible, hot on Friday, some snow on Sat. Night, then lots of rain Monday, anyway did well on walleye's around squaw narrows and hoist bay area, back bay we hammered the crappies in about 2 ft of water, but I agree the fish seem to be scattered around, just fish the typical windblown areas and you'll be fine.

Good luck

fishermn,

I have fished Pipestone many times for walleye but have never been able to find the northerns. Can you give me any tips on how to find northerns in Pipestone?

Thanks!

Memorial day weekend Fishing Report

Cold weather slowed things waaaay down as compared to last weekend. Walleyes were found in similar locations, but more towards 20 FOW, as opposed to 12. Northern action slowed down considerably. Caught a number of fish up to 38 inches, but never boated any over 40. Also, many nice crappies could be caught if you could locate them.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
