Got your email.

Those that send me a email and I don't get back to right away don't worry.

I might be getting called back to work, but I will have to stay out of town so it may delay a reply back.

If all interested could let me know by this weekend would be great, then I can get everything squared this weekend while I am home.

Rob are we going to be able to just throw up a portable with a heater in it if for nothing else to keep our beer warm and possibly stand in for a few minutes? Not a big deal, but might be nice to have a heater running lol

Fishing was Cold and Slow. Got two more tournies(contest's) in the works. 1 we have been doing for a few years. $5 top 3 fish get money. We do get a few door prizes. Nothing Fancy though.

Might put together a panfish tourney also.

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it
    • delcecchi
      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀

      Was up over the weekend and fished Friday and Saturday for an hour or two each day.  Couldn't get a bite on a leech but rainbows were the ticket.  Walleyes were on very narrow window of feeding but when they did bite caught 6 slot fish 22-26.  All healthy and spitting up 2-6 inch perch in the net.  Green beads and Red beads on a 6 foot lindy drifting about 0.7 in 13-16 feet of water.  Find the bait balls on the sonar and look for the walleyes underneath.  No keepers but that's ok the slot fish were sure fun

      I haven't seen any dead minnows or evidence of spiny waterfleas in Frazier Bay this year. Any advice for fishing Frazier bay currently?  Usually around Father's Day we can catch them using slip bobbers and leeches/crawlers in shallower water in the evenings.  All we get are 11 inchers this year.  Any advice would be appreciated.

      I applied to be on the committee, denied.  I pretty much understand and agree with all comments in this post, however I would add the topic of slots.   1 - I believe the strategy behind the protective slot is a good thing for reproduction and growth of trophy sized fish. 2 - I believe there is a large natural imbalance of slot fish, size-wise, more of the slots than typical in nature. 3 - i believe this imbalance leads to depredation - large ones eating small ones.   The DNR and other "experts" claim walleye do not do this.  i have personally seen 10 inch eyes in the stomachs of 18s.  A 16 inch eye in a 30.  Not many of the fish in the slot and above are being cut open, so it is really tough to know exactly what is going on, but it sure is possible.   I do not have a recommendation on how to solve this.  Around 2000, fish over 19.5 were protected, allowing one over to be kept.  That would seem to help control the number of slots.  Again, I do not have a recommendation. Also, folks fishing multiple days, claiming a limit each day seems fishy, as it is nearly impossible to eat 4 fish each day.....  And if you claim have a fish meal the night before departing and you have a limit to travel with, you were over the limit.

      Fished Fri, Sat, and Sun with FIL, BIL, and the Mrs.  Fri was at large, deep basin reef.  Pulled up, anchored with a good bite.  Nothing fast and furious, but enough to keep us busy and interested.  Then the wind went flat.  Our bite went with it so we began pulling spinners, finding areas with biting fish.  The bugs were a moderate bother.  Ended with 8 larger eyes and 4 slot fish.   Sat was up to the south shore of the Angle.  Started off in 30' pulling spinners into 5', but never got past 27' as the bite was good.  Spent about a hour with this bite, then proceeded to join the 60 or so boats off Stoney.  We trolled through the village, picking up fish every 5 minutes or so.  Ended early at 2pm due to threatening skies that never produced and unbearable bugs.  Ended with another 8 eyes and 3 slot fish. Sun, needing suager, we fished in nearby reef that we heard had sauger.  Really no bugs to speak of due to the nice breeze.  Found our sauger, but more remarkable was the slot fish bite.  Ended just short of 20.  FIL was on fire.  He had nearly half of the boat's slots.  He went 28, 20, 25, 26.5, 27, 24, 27, and 24.  Here is the 28 with a smile.
