Was on round on monday night and fished in a portable approx 20ft from the open water and caught our limit. On Tuesday we caught 5 but I lost at least 6 myself.

Was out on Okabena and had some perch action today. Vex was picking up a lot of fish but the bite was pretty lite. Then went to Indian Lake towards sunset and got skunked. Lake is extremely shallow but very clear water. Went out in the middle of the lake towards the open water but couldnt find anything over 4-5' deep.

Pretty amazing that Round can still be producing. That's pretty much been going on since first ice.

I do, but had to stay close for the girls. they had school today, us bankers had the day off and was my only chance to get out and fish since the sarah gettogether. As soon as I left, a buddy called and told me I was in the wrong place. Ahhh such is life. I would love to head south, but unfortunately I am still in the same situation with my father in'law. He is too tough to quit yet. Amazing

As soon as I can, you are first on my list to call.

I see bluegills on my wall right now!!!

he must be one tough dude. You really aren't missing too much right now. If things follow the usual trends things should be picking up in a couple of weeks. I may have to do a little exploring this weekend but im not satisfied following the crowd even though we were all alone both days last weekend.

well if things work out or the end comes, I will give you a call this weekend. St James is a fun lake, never caught anything with much size there, or Mt. Lake, let me know if you are going to get in either of those tourney's

I'll definitely let you know. It's not too likely that ill be in attendance at either one but I haven't totally ruled it out as of yet. They have been getting some pretty nice perch down there and I know the walleyes have been biting in one of my favorite sight fishing late afternoon jigging spots.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
