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.

      Hard to find a lake up the trail not chock-full of invasive smallmouth. Slip bobbers and leeches, and cast towards shoreline rock piles.

      Why do you fish? We all have different goals when we go fishing. Some of us want a meal of fish to eat. Some of us just want to relax. Most of all, we want that "TROPHY" catch. We want something to brag to our friends about, the "Master Angler".

      I was not going to go yesterday but the weather was too nice to stay home. Fished about 5 hours but only got 4 bass and one pike. Not one hit on my go-to jigs & plastic! I don't recall that ever happening over 5 hours. Got a few bass on surface lures (and the pike) and a few on cranks. Water was almost 6 degrees warmer than the day before. The nights finally stayed above the low 40s so that has to have helped.   I have been marking very few fish in water less than 30 feet. I rarely fish deeper than that.   Got desperate a few days ago and went down to Pelican. Not much better down there. A few crappie and dink pike and about 6 nice bass.   Headed north of Red Lake, Ontario in a week. Hope things are going better way up there.

      My wife and 2 Labs are boat camping on the east side of the Brule Narrows this week. We have been here dozens of times, but with late spring, I am wondering what patterns are working for the smallies and walleyes. Thanks 'Pout

      I believe @Rick raises them.   But I don’t think he has a dual sport bike....

      Got my personal best tonight for this lake....27.5"!  My son got a 24, we also got a 17, 20.5", 22". Same area as last night. Fun couple of nights on this beautiful lake.

      Cobra, welcome back.  To bad no replies in almost 3 years to your inquiry.  Their beautiful dogs but there must not be many owners of them on here?  🤔   Like I have been asking for about 4 years if there are any Dual Sport bike owners on this site?  😉

      I haven't been on the website in a long time so long delayed reaction. Sorry   I do have an English Pointer and I live in Longville. My old dog passed away a few weeks ago at almost 15 years old!!! I still have my young dog with special bloodlines. His father came from the last vial of Guard Rail semen. So to have a grandson of a Hall of Fame dog that died in the early 80's is very rare.

      This weather is making it tough to get out and pinning down a consistent bite.  Wind had blown out if every imaginable direction in the past 5 days along with frequent storms keeping us off the lake.  With that said this us what I know.   Walleyes are still going at night on cranks in 5-8 fow.  During the day can be found on 16-25 fow and are biting on crawlers,  leeches and shiner minnows.   Perch are still on flats in 4-8 fow and you'll need to sort to get the nice ones.  Sunfish and crappies are still in the reeds in Allen's Bay and Kitchi.   Water temps have been up and down a lot this week. Currently we have 67-70 degrees in the spots I fished yesterday.
