The Saugers were hitting good by Prescott last night. I was out between 5pm and 7pm Monday night and caught about 20 Saugers and Walleyes. All of the Walleyes were small to very small as was the case for many of the Saugers. Ended up keeping 6 Saugers from 15" to 18". First time I have taken home a limit so this was a very good night for me. The fish were in 25' and hitting on jig/minnow or 3way with plain hook/minnow. I tried running 2 lines but only caught fish on the pole that was actually jigging. I seemed that if you were not actively jigging you were not catching fish. A big thanks to all that have given tips on catching Walleyes, because if it were not for you I would not have tried some of these techniques.

I had a similar experience on Sunday night, lots of dinks, I had 7 all eyes and none over 14. I got a couple on my stinger. I am wondering if anyone has preferences of stingers and how they like to rig them. Just using a jig we where losing all of our bait. So we tried rigging with stingers, DO you like to hook the stinger into the bait? Top or bottom? Hopefully getting back on the water this weekend.

I tried Sunday morning and got several walleyes shy of 15 inches. In a way, no fish fry, but it was fun catching them.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      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.

      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)

      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
