check out the sharper drops like the break in front of birds eye, by the river going out or some of the structure in the east bay. jig and minnow should be best

Thank you Jason you were just the person I was hoping that would reply. I read your daily fishing report quite often and I appreciate the tips and time you put into your site. If your out on Sand this weekend swing over and say hi, I will be in a green 16' lund.

Thanks,

Shaun

How is the water level? It was up there pretty good last Sept. and am just wondering if there was enough moisture thru the winter to keep it up there.

Walleye is the main target.

Last weekend 7/13-7/14 was very slow for me. Anybody else find similar? Are we in the midst of turnover?

Going to be fishing again 7/20 7/21. If anybody has any info from the week, please share.

I'll post when I return.

Good luck.

It was really slow for us too the 2nd week of July, few fish here and there but mostly small ones. spinners and minnows worked best, did find lots of nice crappies though.

Last weekend on Sand didn't produce much for me again. I will admit, I spent very few hours in the boat this time. Saw some fish being caught in the usual haunts again. Got some wood split for hunting season though!

I'm seeing what looks to be a thermocline at about 22' in most areas.Only a couple eye's & 1 of those would have went back but was hooked pretty deep. Been here a week & have managed to find a few more crappies though.

Was up last week and with the calm weather we had high 60s and low 70s surface temp. Fishing was not good but heading up this week and hopefully it will pick up. We did get leeches at Freds, they were labeled jumbos but were what I would consider larges which are fine this time of the year. Good luck!!

Thanks merc,Fred's is where I do most of my business too.Let us know how you do.It looks like we're going to stay for 2 weeks so I'll try to post a few times.With those surface temps the bite should be getting better.I usually like to fish the wind/weedline on Sand too.Check on any crappies?How long are you staying?Maybe I'll see you on the water.If you see a green Crestliner FH/115 Yamaha on it,with a guy in red guidewear bib's,stop over & say high.Tight lines!!

Heading up tomorrow till Monday. Last week we had a lot of panfish on a couple of lakes but nothing really for size. They were moving into the shallows so it should only get better. I have a few different lakes we fish for walleye and Sand is one we usually hit if our first choices don't work out. I'm doing another trip a week from Monday with a different crew so maybe I'll run into you. Who knows maybe Smurfy might be around.

frown Sounds like we won't cross paths this trip as we're not headed up until Monday,maybe on the next trip you do.By the 16th I should have a report for you.Yeah it would great to meet as Smurfy is the only 1 so far & I'm not sure he's a good example wink of the people on here.I hear he's spent the last few days in GR.

I was on a pretty good bite for about a week from the deep smile weedline(14/16) out to the 1st break while rigging leeches & a long snell.I had to do some sorting as there was a bunch of 10-12" fish but with some effort was able to find 2-4 fish every trip out in the 15-16" range.Ate some the other night& going to have some more in the next couple days.It seems that the bite has changed a little in the last couple of days as the ones I'm finding now are a little deeper & want crawlers.

      Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water.  I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike.  Thanks and #tightlines!
    • rayguy
      Heading up to chain for a couple weeks.  Need some general info on the panfish bite.  They still shallow?  Got a couple grandkids coming up and any info sent on the panfish action will be appreciated.  Thanks   Ray guy

      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.  
    • gunner55
      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.

      If I have where you are right then lake Nokomis is near you. There’s lots of good walleye and crappie in there. If not I might suggest Medicine lake. There’s a handful of shore areas to fish and some easy to access kayakable areas. Lots of northerns and panfish in that lake. Look for weed edges and either cast spoons, spinnerbaits, etc for pike or bobber and work for panfish. Also some bonus walleye in there from time to time. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Wild trout are more cautious, and basically smarter. I rarely do well with flashy or bright lures on streams with wild trout. But when I fish designated trout lakes up north, it usually doesn’t matter what color I use. But I’ll give the flashy stuff a slight edge.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Went wading on the upper croix today. Started at my secret spot, but high water made it tough to get around. Fish were fairly active though. Caught 5 decent bass and a little pike. Zipped up to highway 70 bridge and gave that a try. Caught 2 really nice walleyes here. But like the other spot, high water made wading not possible. Might come back here with my boat though 🤔
