Lake Washington gets slower as the season goes on. We did pretty well on the opener and then had a couple walleyes last weekend, but as the water warms up, the walleyes seem to go hiding. I usually switch over to Stella as the water temp goes up - unless I am fishing for bass.

Where to fish on Stella? I like to fish the east side of the lake on the weedline right out from the little homemade access there. The weedline is usually around 10 feet or so. Also, if you start from the northeast corner, there is a nice drop off from the first point. Also, try over by the RV park on the southwest side and then a lot of guys fish the "fingers" on the west side of the lake. I have never had much lake in that area, but Iknow other guys have.

Browning, I grew up in Darwin, and spent alot of time on Stella. There is a small point between the landing and the RV park that is worth a look, as mentioned the bars on the west side, the bay in the northwest side, and of course the main point. The west bars and the point have mainly sand with scattered rock while the bays are mostly mud/weeds. The best way that I found to get bit was a live-bait rig with the best crawler or leech you can find, plain hook, long snell, no color or spinner, plain jane is best. Or, troll cranks after dark. If your fishing during the day don't be afraid to fish deep, 25-30ft. If you get high winds for awhile they can be shallower, but most of the time we got them pretty deep. You have a good chance of getting a nice smallie to. good luck

Ouch. What area of the lake? I was up there last Friday and noticed something floating so I motored over to it slowly and the bottom came up quick so I retreated. I got close enough to see that someone had put a homemade buoy out to mark a shallow spot. This was over on the north side at the opening of that bay that extends to the north. I know it's shallow over there, but this was quite a ways out from the mouth of the bay.

I saw that same marker on Wednesday night. It was right on a weedline and someone told me it was where they were controlling milfoil. If you are facing North from there, there is an old roadbed that goes from the main point from the West, toward Sportsmans park. I live in that bay and it comes up quick on that roadbed, be very careful. Trim up and you can cross it.

even early in the year this spot is only a couple feet deep. no matter what time of year your motor should be trimmed up going across this. you can see it great on a fish graph, but she comes up quick so be careful.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
