Cliff, sorry did not get much of a chance to see you two, after Friday night anyways. The dock bite for us was ok, biggest was a 20 incher, Grand Daughter was getting some very nice perch, they are cleaned and in the freezer. A Lot of people out trolling in front of the cabin. Watched them net some fish, sitting by the fire was a good place for me to be. All in all is was a good weekend.

We did ok sunday and monday. Caught a bunch of fish in 4-8 feet on sunday evening including a few slot fish biggest that night was 22. Monday morn our shallow water was slow so we moved out to 17-35 and low and behold I caught my biggest vermillion walleye to date. It measured 30 inches on the nuts. Pretty beat up and spawned out but still a good catch.

My family and I were there for the first time ever this past weekend. I have also only fished walleyes since opener of 2006 so I am a rookie. I thought we did pretty good, caught a total of 22 with only one in the slot at 18 1/2". About half were caught at the dock in the evening and the other half caught drifting minnows in 13-15 feet with a couple caught in 24-28 feet. My son outfished me on Sunday and my daughter caught the last two of the trip on Monday night. All in all a great time and I am looking forward to going back some time in the future!

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
