Croixflats any luck in Afton? Where abouts does a guy access the river down that way? I fished around catfish bar from the wisconsin side last year didn't have much luck except for a couple sturgeon and a stray sauger here and there. Or are you going further south than that?

I just got back was a bust by the catfish bar. Had a few chasers and 1 14 inch crappie. Going out to the ymca flats tomorrow. I forgot did get 3 10 inch walley. Like clock work fish came around sunset but Like I said no takers.

Hit a patch of sand that previous fisherman left. dull my auger real fast. Talk to the guy next to us apparently these idiots were horsing around on the catfish with the wheelers and got stuck and brought the sand out with them and I found it. What the heck were they doing ripping up private land. mad

Average of 12 inches by catfish bar in Afton maybe thicker further north. It occurred to me there is less open water down there than previous years. Must be because of the power plant is releasing cooler water.

I'll be stuck using an old strikemaster now the nils is down till I get the new blades I ordered. Should Have ordered extra ones earlier. Oh well I'll have 2 now. Don't no when I'll have time to send the dull ones to Surface Tension.

The strikemaster is a good auger but not a nils.

If I catch them guy there gonna be picking sand off themselves for weeks. Na, just venting.

I'll have to get ya down here, fishing is slow but it is nice to have the hole lake practically to ourselves. Peaceful. Was fun watching the Trumpeter Swans other birds frolicking in the open water. Did I just say frolicking

Kept 2. A 10" and an 11" threw a couple back, caught a couple silvers. Then a guy came and set up 15' from me! So I left. Guess he wanted that spot worse than me.

      would like to see a protected slot on bluegills, 10 to 12 inches go back. only one over 12 inches.

      Stands to reason that clogging up the dock at a public access would irritate people.  Most of those docks aren't very big.  That problem didn't occur to me.

      PSU,   Fished the evenings last Th, Fr and Saturday.  The smaller side bays in Frazier with slip bobbers and leeches in about 8 ft of water at dusk. Thursday night my son and I caught 7 eaters.   Friday night the good news was that three of us boated about 30 walleyes.  Bad news was that only 6 were eaters.   All very small but they were really feeding in the warm shallower waters. Saturday night was very slow.  Just a few small ones.  I haven't been out the last three days. I've seen a few mayflys in Frazier Bay but no major hatching yet.
    • DonkeyHodey
      I can't help you with access, but I have a friend that regularly fishes stump and sagatagan--apparently the lakes are infested with norts and that's what he targets.  Lots of 2-5 pounders. (I suspect if you're targeting bass you'll end up catching mostly norts.)

      It appears that most of the bass are off their beds on the deep clear lakes near Hackensack/Longville. I did see 1 smallie guarding the nest still. The winds have the minnows piled up on the NE corner and I'm sure the walleyes were there, but I struck out on my first lake (1 smallmouth). Only fished for eyes for a little over an hour in the morning darkness. As the sun was rising, I switched lakes and was excited when a decent smallmouth smoked my small wake bait as soon as it hit the water on my first cast on lake number 2. Ended up catching over a dozen around shallow rocks and deep cabbage before it was time to go to work. Didn't get much sleep last night, but it was well worth it!!
    • PSU
      Any recent fishing reports for Frazer/Smarts Bay area. Didn't fish much last weekend (maybe four hours), but it was REALLY slow for me. First time I haven't keep a keeper in quite some time. Depths, technique and bait choice would be welcomed! 
    • Grindstone29
      Fins - same for me yesterday.  Fished three hours in the evening last night.  Pretty big wind still at 7pm.  Caught 5 walleye (all dinks) and a northern.  I went out for two hours this morning, mainly graphing.  Stopped near Cranberry Island and caught one 15 inch for dinner.  Will go out again this evening for advanced scouting.  Big group coming up over the 4th of July and they are expecting to catch fish.  Maybe i'll have to reset expectations... 
    • Hoey
      I do not target smallies, but I do run across them when fishing shallow, rocky areas, typically along the shore and back in the small bays.  The ones we have caught were nice and strong, running from 19 to 21 inches.  Good Luck.
    • SkunkedAgain
      At least a decade ago, I was fishing in Head O Lakes west off Taylors Island when I got a heavy snag in 35ft. I kept pulling up what felt like a log until it appeared at the surface. It was the underwater power line that I think runs out to the island where everyone fishes muskies. I carefully unhooked my jig and let the line fall back into place in the lake.   I'll keep an eye out for your prop!

      I called the Soudan Mine today and was told that you can't leave your boat at the landing in Stuntz Bay. She said that it was "strongly frowned upon" and that she wasn't aware of any way to boat to the mine. Maybe that will be something that happens in the future.
