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'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
