I am not sure, I was planning on a small local lake but I might end up going down to Mora to visit my sister who just came back from wintering in Arizona. I haven't seen her for 5 months. I know if I will be on a lake somewhere Monday for sure and have a trip planned to Lake Carlos next week for 4 days.

Are heading up to fish with Jim? Try Ben's Bait in Grand Rapids

Yes they are coming up to fish but Jim get to paint mad

My cast will come off my left arm tomorrow morning but it will take a few weeks to get back to normal so I am getting the cabin ready so we can put it on the market by June 1st. It really sucks to try and type with one hand crazy

The arm is still very tender and will take some time to get back into shape so I think running the tiller will be out of the question for a couple of weeks. This morning it started to hurt to carry a big bag of cereal mad

Glen as much as I hate to sell the place we have to because I don't want Lisa to work while she is going through the nursing program. We will always be in the area but who knows were we will live when school is all done and Lisa finally gets that dream job. I have a feeling it will not sell with the market in such bad shape and if that is the case we might have to rent it out and move there later. We will have to get out on Winni some time in June and get some walleyes.

I heard from a reliable source today that it isn't looking good for local shiners. Sounds like they're staging on the drop offs, but this weather hasn't let them come up shallow to do their thing.......become bait for all of us! grin

I know I'll have my bucket of Gulp minnows in the boat for sure.

heading up to grandpa's cabin on big jesse lake, probably gonna fish little jesse or bowstring. I'm hoping the bowstring store has shiners for their usual rediculous price, but it's better than driving all the way into town. couple of days ago the weather report looked great, now, not so hot, lets hope they are wronge!!!

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
