GC im heading out this morning, will try a few spots but im not very hopeful. Not the best panfishing lake. I told jack that it should be a walleye/crappie tourney. Ill be in a small tan pickup with a black topper and a fish trap. -Spicer

Fishing has been beyond bad this year. That tournament could be a joke...

It's in cannon falls and the weigh in was held at about 1 to 2 p.m. The fishing was pretty slow. The bass were more easily caught though. Gill's and crappies were hard to catch.

byllesby should be one of the last lakes on your list to try if your looking to go out and catch a good number of fish.

I went to the launch yesterday and learned they moved the weigh in from 1 to 2 and added the White Bass to the list of fish. I'm assuming the Saturday pre-fish didn't get much results and looking at the weigh results of the tournament, the fish caught for most of the groups was very low.

Was anybody on the lake during the tourney? Where were these guys spending most of their time?

sounded like they were catching the blue gills and crappie by the rock wall by the camp ground.

I fished the rock wall yesterday. Still not real aggressive. I was actually targeting walleyes with not luck. Think I'm sticking to the Zumbro, it's much closer.

      yea I keep thinking of getting a different motor but runs good. its a 40 Johnson. I am happy with the boat itself and don't plan on a different one either.

      There are good panfish, both above and below Pillager dam. in Lake Placid, As the water warms, look for the milfoil beds on the north side of the river to establish itself.  If the edges as well as the deeper water adjacent to the weeds.  I like to fan cast a split shot rig vs. a bobber set up. Below the dam, in summer panfish can be caught directly below the dam as well as near Cty 1 Bridge and along most of the inside turns of the river east of there. There are some nice sized panfish in the system, please let the bigger ones back.

      Anyone ever fish this lake before? Looks like it could be a good early season lake. Where exactly is the access? Is it a marked road? Pay box or do I have to go to the house and bother the guy? Appears the river might be too high to fish next weekend, so it’d be nice to find a little solitude on a nearby lake over the holiday weekend.

      I was the one with the 26-1/2" fish yesterday that weighed 5.15 #s. Was a skinny spawned out walleye!  Catch her again in 2/3 weeks and she will be 6/7 lbs for sure! 
    • JerkinLips
      I'm sure that the 5.15 pound walleye was a skinny 26" fish.  The regulations book lists a 20" at 2.7 pounds and a 26" at 6.2 pounds.
    • PRO-V
      Believe it or not it's a 1993 1660 ProV with a 2 stroke Pro 60 Yamaha. Still runs like a champ. I'm starting to get to the age that it doesn't pay to get a new one. It's always stored in the garage unless we're on a trip.

      Must have been a tough day of fishing with a couple hundred good fishermen catching only an handful of fish over 5#.   I'm puzzled by the fish weighing 5.15# and and 5.81#.  Seems too heavy for a 20" fish and too light for a 26" fish.  The chart I use suggests a 20" walleye weighs 3.12# and a 26" walleye weighs 7.18#.  Of course there is huge variation around this prediction chart.  Wonder if these were these long skinny fish or short chunky fish?   Thanks for posting the results bb and congrats on 10th place.
