Dan,

I went out tonight, with my two youngin's to try my luck out deep once again.

we went out almost 4 miles and found the waves to be slightly challenging. I was ok, but my two kids couldnt figure out how to fish in the topsy turvy rollers.

the fish were still out there where I found them the other day, but there were fewer fish and they were more scatteredand deeper (32 - 27 fow)

I decided it would be better to try our hand in against shore.

we went south of the birches landing and only marked a couple fish, but it was much calmer so we stayed a half hour, but I just cant sit still when it's prime time and I'm not on fish, so we headed over to bena bar.

I only marked a couple fish suspended off the ledge, but I noticed the wind had layed down considerably, so we beat feet back north to the humps to try our hand at those fish.

they were on the move because I could not locate them in the same spot twice.

I finaly hooked one and let my son crank it in, while my daughter handled the net, boating our only fish, a nice 19 inch walleye.

they got cold and it was time to go.

just give me one good day on the lake and I will figure them out!

sounds like sunday will be the better of the weekend days.

they are talking rain tomorrow.

I think I will be there. maybe monday too!

Hey Guys,

I will be on Winnie Monday morning - Wednesday Noon.

Anybody wanna meet up on the Lake? Do you have Marine Radio??

If you have Marine Radio, I'm usually on 14.

I have a Silver & Black 18' Alumacraft Tournament Sport (full windshield) with a 140 HP Suzuki & a 6' White Marine Radio Antenna.

Either way, let me know or post some info and maybe we can meet up somewhere - I'll check here a few times on occasion up to Sunday around 7PM.

You'll be fine. Bring & use Leeches. A good way to fish the bars is to drift 'em. Just drift along the edge or above the edge and kick it to keep your frift line with the trolling motor.

Give me a shout on Ch. 14!

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
