Long snells no matter what you have, spinners included.

If you're looking for mud, you can't beat a launch on the N or NW side of the lake, I use Terry's but I'm sure there are others.

Last time I was on the mud was the 28th, and there were fish biting everywhere then. Of course depending on waves/wind/cloud cover, you never know exactly where they'll be -- but within a short time you should home in on some with your electronics. Try all depths and try a couple colors of spinners if there's multiple ppl in the boat. On the 29th we got them equally on chartreuse, hammered gold, and orange, so it didn't seem to matter....however, sometimes it does. Don't be afraid to try both leeches and crawlers too if there's multiple ppl. And of course, try different depths, they will often move shallower or deeper even throughout the day.

LOL. I just re-read what I said -- in a nutshell, try everything smile.gif But the long snell is definitely key. smile.gif

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
