Hey walleye365, the bite was good Saturday and not as good Sunday but still ran into good numbers of fish Sunday. I described how both days went for us earlier in this thread. If you start at the top of page 1 of the thread and read through it you'll find the info.

Good luck up here and hope you find fish! grin.gifgrin.gif

There's no way to predict how good the laker fishing will be even a day or two ahead, or even today, really. Just gotta get out there and hope for the best and see if the fish are active that day. I've done well in all weather conditions and been skunked in all weather conditions, too.

Hey Tracy, leg lift adds to the action of the swish grin.gif Get a large print of that photo and put it on the wall. A definite "trophy".

Steve, no kidding about the skunk days. Sheesh, I have not hooked into any of those narly trout for some time now. It's odd, when we use to fish off the Gunflint we almost always caught at least one fish or more a day. Some days slow, others snappin'. I know I have put my dues in on the big B. Hopefully the Trout God will transfer credits to Lake Superior this spring and reward me with one of those big Gitcheegumee gals ;\) BC

Well, I gotta admit, its really cool to be able to relive the moments through these SCHWWWEEETTT photos Steve took while I'm sitting at work waiting for the plumber.

I think we might have pricing to discuss there Mr. Catfish. ;\)grin.gif

Opening day this season I picked off that 8.5 lber, then nothing for three more days of fishing. If the laker gods are that demanding, after Saturday, I figure I'm not going to catch another for, oh, 7 or 8 days. crazy.gif

But I think they're a touch more merciful to you Northern guys, so, BC, good luck and I hope you get big returns on your payments!!!

Those laker gods. They defy common sense. At some point you just gotta shrug your shoulders, look at the sky and go: "Yo, laker gods, when is is MY turn?" grin.gifgrin.gif

Wanderer, you have my e-mail. grin.gif

Nice fish and great pictures to go with it. What more can a guy ask for. I wish I would have had someone like Steve with me on Red last Friday. I caught my biggest pike ever ( 40 inches long and fat) and I give my camera to my buddy to take a pic. He supposedly snaps the photo and I put the fish back only later to find out there is no picture. cry.gif

      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
