    Good bite in the East end this weekend. No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat. Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

    That buffalo is either a smallmouth (my guess), or a black buffalo. Do you have any shots of the lips?

    Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water. Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line. Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

    Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck

    Gotta love the mallards that stick around Minnesota in the wintertime. They sure are pretty. Check out this youtube video I posted.

    got out for a couple hours on Friday from 8pm to 10pm. Started jig rapping on a now popular spot on middle WF and only wasted 15-20 minutes doing that before we started trolling over the deep water. We went into Trout and trolled all the way across the lake landing 2 17.25" walleyes. One on the west side over 70' of water and the other on the east side over 120' of water. Once again just a beautiful evening on a beautiful chain of lakes!!

    The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally. Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths. Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

    Yup! 14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time. I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use. Anything less and the bite offs are easy. Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie. I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though. I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

    I did a google on "corner cap" and gunwale corner cap.... Saw some stuff that looked like it would work. here is one. this is from Australia but probably could find something here. Also a bunch of pontoon stuff might be adaptable. Another thought is to look at Lund models and find one that uses the same hull as your boat only is more recent.... My guess is that Lund has been using basically the same hulls for a bunch of different models for years. I bet you can find one that has similar corner caps as what you need. You could even give them a call.

    Wife and I tried some trolling the other night. Caught a dozen or so fish in about 2 hours. Biggest was 21” lots of 17-19” inch fish. Too bad u couldn’t keep a couple. Fish were stacked in 18-21’ on the edge of a rock reef. Couldn’t believe how many fish I was marking. Tight lines!

    my buddy goes on a regular trip each year on the float. He says it's a blast. They catch everything from drum to white bass to catfish. He usually soaks worms or casts jigs and has good luck. As long as you aren't persnickety about what bends the rod I think it gives you a great opportunity to spend some time reeling stuff in.

    It would be nice if you guy's would mention what part of the lake you're on when doing the postings. GPS coordinates would really be great

    Man that part of the world is so beautiful. I've been wanting to take my kids up there on a camping trip, but at 5 and 6 it might be just a little too much. or not. I guess a guy never knows till he tries.

    I use braid. For the jigging rod use a wire leader of some type if pike are a problem. A piece of tooth proof or equivalent in 15 pound test can just be tied in. I prefer a snap on the end but it isn't necessary. South bend makes good leaders that have thin wire, and small swivels and snaps. Invisa-leader is name. For the big bucks there is a 49 strand tieable wire.... both these are available at amzn and in test down to 10 or 13 pounds. You can also buy nylon coated and melt the coating to really secure the knot. FF has the cortland. you might have to order the AFW stuff

    We’ve tried a couple times by boat but their docking leaves lots to be desired. Same people who own VC and don’t have decent docking there either. I’m done trying. Last Saturday someone in a $50 bayliner tried to run us over to get to the dock space that was left. We left and went to fortune bay and am done trying

    Was nice to hear that the Croix upstream of Stillwater was pretty much normal level, so I fished out of Osceola yesterday. Was an absolute beautiful day to be out! Didn’t get as hot as expected, nice and cloudy, and a nice wind blowing upstream. For the first time in history, I didn’t cast a twister tail on the river. For some reason I was deadset on jointed rapalas and clacking raps. Only caught 1 smallie, 1 walleye, and 1 pike. Lost about 5 fish, 1 of which I suspect was a turtle. Overall experience resulted in one of my better outings of the season!

    Always have had struggles in July. Lots of forage to keep them fish full this time of year.

    Totally forgot to mention wildlife- we got everything but bear- saw a wolf on the drive up, a moose running by the campground, a fox running by camp, and nearly hit a deer on the drive home.... along with a loon family, some eagles, crayfish and toadies, made for a good weekend of family wildlife viewing!

    Buzzed up there yesterday. Took my son and BIL. Pulling spinners/minnows in 5-6 we caught 55 walleyes fishing from 9-3. 43 were under 14". The other 12 were 14-16". Nothing over. With all the little ones the great fishing should continue long into the future. Bright green spinner and float was the ticket. Not to many boats out there. Maybe a dozen or so... We went out of West Winds resort. Pretty fun day!

    I use a rectangle cookie sheet on the top rack with a circle pizza pan on top of it, it gives a little heat deflection and it still allows heat to cook crust

    I believe so. A lot of the mallards have found bird feeders and it's been a yearly thing with flocks circling and landing in yards.

    Cherokee, there is a pond not far from my house that never freezes during the winter. I drove past it on Friday and it is COVERED in mallards. There must be over 1000 ducks sitting in this small pond. I also saw a ton of geese on a golf course yesterday, as a lot of grass is now becoming exposed, providing a food source. There must be a sizable population of geese and ducks that don't even migrate anymore.

    Now, I going to be telling to a secret that you can tell no one. Their is this small pond by white bear lake. It's called lost lake, most people think it's just a kids panfish pond with lots of small pike and great bird watching, But it has massive bass. It doesn't have a lost of bass, but the ones you do find are massive. Like it might take you all day but you'll catch the fish of a life time. I'm not to sure any one reads this anymore, but if you happen to find it, lucky you!

    don't listen to all the hype about mud motors, i hunt swan about 5 days a week, with a 25 short shaft, and have had very few problems this year. The south part of South bay is chuck full of weeds which makes for a slow go, but other than that i'll blow by any surface drive. shoot em up, gettin should be gettin good

    If you go less than 10ft wide you will regret it!!! There are plenty of 10x16 houses out there in that price range. Rememeber you may spend several DAYS at a time in this house. Nothing worse than a small dank house. depressing.....Big windows are also a big plus.

    Nothing wrong with having a 8 x 12. It just all depends on how you lay it out. That's what I have been fishing out of for the past 20 years. The resorts love smaller houses also. I only was charged 1/2 the going rate for having my house moved to different spots cause it was so easy for them to pull mine. I also got on the ice a week or 2 earlier than the bigger houses. Here is my house out on 8" of ice. When I was at Twin Pines they would pull it out on 6" with a wheeler.

    Imho,I would go with a 10 foot minimum width.The extra room is nice for four or more in a larger house.Some of the resorts don't like medal skids..........they seem to tear up and move bridges from time to time.c63

    Chumba, Just trying to be helpful, so please accept this with that in mind....As for searching, have you called resorts directly and asked what they have for sale? (This time of year they can be hard to reach...but they also might know of clients looking to sell now that season is done.) Also, from my view, I think you will be very lucky to find a quality house at this size for the price range you list. However, some sellers also can be very eager to deal this time of year because they don't want to sit with the house until late summer/fall - the prime time to buy. In short, if you see a more expensive house listed, check it out and make an offer. All they can say is "no." Good luck!

    The wing thang actually spins on a vertical axis unlike most spinning wing decoys that spin on a horizontal axis. Hope that helps. I use two wing thangs along with a spinning wing decoy in my field spreads. I think they work great for ducks. I've used them in water on homemade extension poles too but had trouble with it falling over. Dried it out and it still spins!

    It takes four AA and it's a spinning wing decoy. You can get them from cabelas.
