Hey there W.Nutz....

Okay... I'm busted... You must have seen me leave yesterday...

May 18th Report:

Water: Temp in the low 60's. Slightly green. But not as bad as last year. At least not yet.

Crappies: Scattered. Small ones still shallow but caught fish anywhere from 2' to 22'. Action was sporatic. Some sorting was to be done, but kept enough for a decent meal.....With a kicker...

Walleye: Managed to hook three. Two little dinkers, and one being a 17" keeper. (The yummy kicker!)

Swimmer's alert: DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT leave your small dogs, like poodles, in or near the water unattended. Trust me on this one. shocked.gifshocked.gifshocked.gif That's all I'll say on that, so consider yourselves warned.

Do you do much trolling on Waconia?

Glad to hear somebody is getting somthing out there. smile.gif Congrats on the kicker!

I'll give it another try, weather permitting, this weekend.

Your dog comment has me confused... Perhaps that was the point?

I'm in a white w/blue stripe stingray. No hull numbers yet - give me a wave if you see me!

If your talking crank bait trolling, i do not. I'm making it a point to try it a couple of times this spring. If your talking dragging a leech or crawler. yes

Hope that answered your question

I was out there last night and tried something different. Went with just a splitshot and a leech and drifted over the reefs with a long line. Anyway, no luck and spoke with a few others and they didn't have any luck last night either. Anyone else?

So what he's saying is.......
There the distinct possibility that if you let your little weiner dog lose on shore, it's apt to become a weine sandwich for a species of toothy critters that have been stocked into Waconia. It's about that time of year!

I didn't realize the DNR started stocking alligators in Waconia! That'll make me think twice about jumping off the boat to cool off between runs! tongue.gif

Or perhaps MH has the taste for poodles...

Saw a few boats out last night when I drove past. Sounds like the weekend could be wet - we'll see if I make it out or not.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒
    • osok
      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....
    • Wanderer
      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.
    • Borch
      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
