Bigeye30"

was out there this saturday. i found aboout 12 inches all over but I did talk to some people who hit a few slush spots and they noted about 8 inches in those. there are some good sized perms out there and I saw one fool drive all the way across the lake from beaver dam to the island. I think were a good couple of cold days from driving myself but others have done it. fishing was slow managed a couple northerns one about 4 pounds one the pannie rod boy was that a battle and one one a tipup that went about 6 or 7 both are still swimming. marked a lot of fish from 12 to 20 fow but couldn't get them convinced to eat. fished from beaver dam all the way to the island. wasn't able to fish the primetime but I did talk to a friend who tried the deep water 30 fow and said the same. lots of fish on the screen but nothing cooperating. I tried about every bait imaginable and the fish would come up amd look at it then leave. little early in my opinion. good luck if you go

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
