the weedlines are going fast but you can find some, look for the three humps out from the landing, and the 18ft hole on the north side and the two dog legs on the southside half way down the lake watch your graph and look for the hard bottom and you will find the fish.

water to low for that you will need to fish deep and find the weeds, buzz baits around the slop grass around the edge off the lake, whens the tourny? you know how new ulm is its always time for a beer, ya essig is getting close to a suburb, but thats ok closer to carls they have beer to. smirk.gif let me know if i can help more

Waska is down , but not too bad.. maybe 1-2 feet from normal and this rain will help!! we didnt get 9 inches though..wow thats a ton at once.. this is about the time of year the smallies on waska start movin towards the starbuck beach.. may be worth a look if you get a chance to pre-fish it.. they did well there last yr there

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      My beach be west for sure.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
