Was acually going to post one today but you guys beat me to it. Have been going out on wed. and sundays and been catching fish but for size not much to speak of. Last sunday fished whispering bay from noon to 3 and cauht a few sunnies and no crappies which surprised me cause couldn't catch a sunnie the week before and had nothin but craps. But we moved to the main lake for some eyes (which havent been productive at all this year) and got 1 10incher and crappies for the rest of the night. did manage to take 8-9 crappies home biggest being shy of 10in smallest being 8in. Hope this may help wink

Hit my main "eye" spot a week ago that has always held fish in the past and got blanked except for one dink and a couple perch. Not sure what the deal is.

I hosted a huge get together out there on Saturday. We had between 150 and 200 people out there, mostly kids. Shallow was the key to catching fish. We were after bluegills as they provide good action for the kids. Anyone fishing deeper than 8 fow struggled to catch fish, while those fishing 6 or less caught a bunch of bluegills. There were some bass and pike caught along with a walleye about 11" long.

Good thing it snowed for ya on friday, otherwise it would have been a giant ice rink.

I was out on Friday before the snow started and I was pretty worried. It ended up being pretty nice, but it was still slippery. Plenty of falls, but there was a bit of padding at least.

was out there on saturday and caught 3 walleye in 13-22ft all were about 12 inches as well as a handful of greedy fat perch. Had a few nice eyes in my hole but they did not make it onto the ice. Pretty frustrating staring at the fish but not being able to hold them... One must have been at least 4 pounds... also once the walleye bite started i must have missed about 8 or so bites which did not make me happy since i normally have a great bite to hook-up ratio. All in all another fun day out there.

      so i booked my first trip to mille lacs for a week on the southern portion in september for my pike fishing trip with my wife and dog. we agreed that we would try smaller lakes in the future and we actually went bigger!! 😀🙄 man that's a big (almost) round lake. i'm not asking for secret spots, but a push in the right direction please. i will look at my navionics this week and see how it looks but do i just go out and find some points or maybe work the backs of the bays? shallow or deep in mid september? i would think that first i would need to find some weeds. i always think weeds and pike. from looking at satellite pics it's hard for me to tell weeds or any other type of structure. any of your suggestions would really be helpful.  i know it's not rocket science to catch pike but any time that I could save looking would be a great help. you have all been really kind. thank you all! chris

      Tale of two days this last weekend. On Saturday, couldn't pull a fish out of the lake. On Sunday, had a four fish walleye limit by 11am, with a bonus perch as well.   Graphed fish on Saturday, just couldn't get 'em to move. On Sunday, went back and no fish to be found. Decided to get out of my comfort zone, so i started working spots that i hadn't been to in two years or more. 2nd spot i tried had 'em stacked. Not huge, but consistent 12-15". Good size to keep.   My take-away was get out and try some spots you haven't been to in a while.

      The sweltering heat, high humidity values, and intermittent thunderstorms have certainly provided some challenges for anglers but even as we enter the dogdays of summer the fish are still on the chow! As we all know there is never any shortage of action when one sets out to target Bass. Smallmouth Bass can be found along the deep weed lines, rocks, and sunken humps. Try using a Drop-Shot Rig tipped with a Leech. Largemouth on the other hand can be found working the weeds inside and outside the lines using Tubes, Spinner Baits, and Carolina Rigs. In the early morning, try working docks, shoreline structure and swimming platforms next to sharp drop-offs. Of course, usually by this time of year we have shifted our focus to chasing Large Slab Crappies. The weed beds are holding large numbers of both Crappies and Sunfish. Pay especially close attention to the cabbage along deeper drop-offs. Slip-Bobbers using live bait or plastics, Small Swim Baits, Spinners, Beetle Spins are all working well, these buggers have been hungry!! The Walleye bite is also one that has yet to relinquish to the torrid, humid conditions. A lot of techniques have still been producing good numbers of fish. Anything from pulling Spinners in the weeds, Lindy Rigs, Slip-Bobbers, jigs tipped with Leeches, Crawlers or Chubs… Cranks, Shiver Minnows and the list goes on!! It really is Dealer’s Choice it seems, trolling Cranks on the mid-lake flats has been best toward the evening hours until after dark, Spinners have been enticing them during the mid-day, as well as jigging raps for the walleye found out over the deep structure. -Cheers!

      I live just off the Rum near walbo. Water high deer flies horrible. Yes good smallie and walleye when water down to normal. To high right now in my opinion.

      I wonder if there is any connection to the fact that when the dnr guys pull their seine on my beach they get 150 or so nice perch? Run up to 4 or 5 inches.   They seine at a number of places around the lake 4 times every July and have been for many years.   This is way above what I can remember as typical.  And that is without the young of the year which are still too little to show up much.

      I fished last Tuesday and Wednesday. Caught 5 walleyes in Lower WF on lindy and leach. 4 of the fish were caught within an hour on Tuesday early evening. Mornings were slow both days. Heading up again on Monday for a few days. Hopefully weather will stay stable.
