Bring crawlers and lots fo them. Fish shallow and on the breaks and you will find them...Fish SLOW and light gear.

If I were you I would pack

1/8 1/4 3/8 oz lindy sinkers so your ready for most depths

small swivles

clear green/red/yellow/glow beads

Red Hooks

Worm Blower Upper

Make your own lindy's 4-8 feet in length with one or two beads in front of your lindy rig hooks. I always run 2 hooks for crawlers on that lake. Use the worm Blower Upper to have the crawler float up above the weeds. Fish the edges of weeds and get your rears up early. Usually we are on the water before sunrise and off by 10 am. Start off on points or rock piles. Or start on the island. Not a hard lake to fish but just gotta find a spot and try it. Some guys pull cranks on flats at low light and do good. Tried it once out deep with down riggers and got 3 in an hour then nothing :S Some guys jig with fat heads and do ok. Never fished minnows up there.

Fellas, I'll likely be out on White Earth during that timeframe. Be sure to stop by and say howdy. I'll be in a black and red Skeeter with a 150 Yammy on the back.

My wife's family rents a bunch of the new horizon cottages every year over the 4th. They've been doing it for years. We'll be up there this year again. Thought you might be one of the rellys.

Don't worry about me catching too many walleyes on White Earth- that's one lake that really has my number. Despite all the great reports on the lake here, I consistently struggle out there. There's tons of area lakes I consistently catch walleyes on, but White Earth is NOT one of them.

Anyone hear how the tourney went out there this past weekend? Plenty of boats around on Sat. Any idea of how the winning team was fishing?

I heard the winning weight was something like 6 fish for 11 pounds and most people had a tough time out there, but that is all second hand info. Scoot were you out there on Saturday? I thought I saw a boat that matched the description you gave fishing by the island.

Yep, I was out there. I was by the island towards sundown on Sat night. Did you pull in there later in the evening with another fella?

Yep, I was there with two other people and fished more on the SE side. We weren't there long, just long enough to go down that side once.

      With social media the new normal is for people to rant the open airways.  Unfortunately, some times people cross the line. I don't think that has happened here, but I would also say that I have sympathy for the new owners of the Landing.  I continue to go there knowing I will pay more than I generally would want to.  I would probably go more if their prices were lower as they are much closer to me than The Crescent.

      Another sunrise and another sunset made my day yesterday as I  enjoyed a day on such a grand lake. I spent part of the morning in old Minnesota making some phone calls, planning my day and even wetting a line.
       Berry and his crew Ted, Mike  and Scott had left early do to the weather conditions in southern Minnesota. They only managed 3 more fish after the move. "Stupid fish".
       I hung out in old minnesota until the generator ran out of gas so I could figure out how long it ran on a tank. !0 1/2 hours as she quit running at 8:30 am. Sure would be nice to have that burg system? Oh that's right its in the snow bank . "Stupid thing" not sure why it fails.
       After fueling up the generator I made the morning rounds to be a little disappointed with the fishing report "Stupid fish" Oh well as Wayne always says if we caught them all there would not be any to catch.
       I then went over to clean and prep Montana for Brian and Stacy as they were coming up for there 25th anniversary.
        I also gave Reid and Jason a couple tips as they were off to find the very elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. They only caught one walleye in North Carolina so I told them when they came back it would be in a new spot.
       I then said goodbye to Steve from Michigan  and his crew in Florida. They did horrible on low and did not fair much better in florida the third night. They did have some action on tip ups though just outside the house.
       Then over to north Dakota where again no fish "stupid fish" what a horrible spot that turned out to be. We talked and I told them I would be back at 10:30 to move the house. Arriving back at 10:38  we were on the move. I told them if all went well they would be wetting a line again by noon. I also said if they wanted they could ride in north Dakota. Scott ask if I had any more shovels and I said sure do I have 3  so they all pitched in to dig her out. The move went well and just like I promised they were wetting a line  by noon. Cory said the ride was way smoother then he expected.
       The phone rings and its Stacy and Brian 2 hours early, perfect as the house is ready to go. At the same time Buddy Hillmen calls and says he is over the pressure ridge and were going to open another mile of road. OH! Oh! plan A is now switched to plan B. I get them checked in and I'm off to help with the new road.
       It did not take long to burn up a 1/2 tank of gas. I checked in with Buddy Hillmen and headed home to  gas up, check the fluids and get back out to the houses as I still had more work there. Moving north Carolina went well other then a few issues with the extension cords. As my very good pal Wayne says. "Here at Cookies we do it right cause we do it Twice"
       Once North Carolina was all set I was back out to Hillmen's highway where we would keep plugging away on the new mile of road. 2 hours later and I was heading home for a quick bite before making the evening rounds.
      Stacy and Brian were the first stop where Stacy had lost 5 fish at the hole. I gave her a tip on landing them so we will see if that pans out.
       Reid and Jason found north Carolina and had a blast fishing outside all day. They landed a few walleyes but no" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie". I guess that's why I call them elusive.
       Last stop was at North Dakota ! I had played a round of Texas Hold um with them the night before and wanted another shot. 
        Scott did not play, he sure deserves to catch a few fish as he was always holding his fishing rod and jigging  when I stopped in. One fish was all they caught on the new spot "stupid fish".
       I lost a second time in hold um and headed home where I ran into a local Dave him and his son had set up just to the north east of us where they landed 3 nice fish.
       Well back to the grind again today. we have mike coming for north Dakota and Kieth and his kids coming for florida. I told both them that check in was at 2pm.

      Lundeens was out of shiners when I was there granted it was Sunday

      I believe that one in Monticello closed down

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.
