I'm normally only in the area for the silver bass run (or lack there of) on the cannon in the spring, but I got a few days to fish this upcoming week and kinda' want to try something new. Upon looking through the lakefinder it looked as if mazaska has the best pike/bass fishing in the area. What's been the assessment out there this year?

If it was me I would recommend Cedar lake west of faribo for bass and General Shields and Mazaska for Northerns, unless you want numbers and not so worried about size, then I would recommend Kelly-Dudley for both...

Where are you coming from?

Take Hwy 21 out of Faribault.

Take a left at Roberds Lake Trail

Take an immediate right on 165th street.

Follow that to Kelly/Dudley Lake boat landing.

You can fish from the dock.

Thanks for the info...I'd like to try all those lakes if it were feasible, but sounds like mazaska will win this round. How is the water looking? Pretty green?

If I make it down there it'll be wednesday. I just fished a lake in the north metro today that was super green (less than 6 inch clarity), definitely looking for some clearer water now.

Just out of curiousity, are white bass a common catch or are the numbers on the survey misleading?

White bass are a very common catch. They love crawlers out there while walleye fishing. smile

Careful at the launch, I chewed my prop pretty good about 5 feet away from the launch, a nice mound built up there.

Was out there this past sunday the 26th the launch is shallow. If looking down the launch towards the lake the left side is the worst. Did catch a 18" walleye and a 16". Also caught a few crappies. A few northerns smallest was 22" biggest 30" not a bad day. [img:center]mw72609.jpg

Well, I made the treck down to "maz" today, the lake looked really good upon arrival. But the fishing sucked! frown I only got 2 bass and a pike. I think it had more to do with the weather that was moving through though. Like I said, I liked the look of the lake, so I'm willing to give it another shot next year.

they were doing good last weekend right off the landing, was thinking of taking my kid there too....not sure of depth but distance was about 100-200 yards off public access.

Stop into the shieldsville baitshop, they usually will be able to tell you more info on Mazaska. pike bite was on at shields and circle, not sure on Mazaska.

I was out there Saturday night and Sunday. Caught three small Walleyes at night, a handful of small perch, and three keeper crappies in about 18 hours of fishing. Not the greatest if you ask me. There's about 4 inches of water/slush on top of the ice now due to the heavy snow.

Its right outside Waterville. They are sure fun through the ice, and you will know when you find a school they will light up the flasher.

Was out for about 4 hours yesterday and marked LOTS of suspended fish. They were anywhere from 6-12' off the bottom. Only one small hit and nothing through the ice.

I have a favor/question to ask. Is anyone going to be out on Mazaska with a wheeler tomorrow? My wheeler is in the shop and I was planning on going up to Red this weekend, but the house is stuck out there with no way of getting it off. It's located about 200 yds from the SE landing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. PM me or give me a call 612-382-6486.

Thanks in advance.

      I’ll be on Birch Lake - Ely - in late July. Anyone familiar with good spots?

      We bring a weather and an FM radio. Cell phone coverage is sporadic, but you can find a signal almost anywhere (but usually it originates from Canada). Bad weather can come in a hurry, so it is nice to be able to know what is coming in advance.

      Do you know anyone who reloads? Ammo has been bought up with the civil unrest currently going on.

      I would agree with James about tough bite. The last few days have been tough. You wont see those mayflies in Big Bay, because they all hatched last week. We have had high heat no wind to go with mayflies,then fish flies so I think that explains the problem. It will get better soon as minnows become primary food source for eyes. Wont see you out there for a while as I have to leave for a week. Good Luck !!

      I may not get a chance to fish Leech before this fall, but I still really liked reading your report Joe.  Thank you for posting.

      One more question about communication and weather alerts on eastern Rainy Lake.   We could occasionally get  an AT&T signal, especially after we had signed up for the Canadian signal.  We were about 16 miles east of the visitor center, and at the Kemp Channel entrance.  The signal strength kinda depended on weather conditions and time of day.   I am looking at the possibility of getting a weather alert radio.  It states:  Public Alert Certified Weather Radio, Receives all 7 NOAA Weather Channel and Reports.  It is also an AM/FM radio.  Does this actually work in the mid-lake area, or would you recommend something different?

      Ive been up since Friday. Until today ive been out in short stints hour here or there each day. Sometimes just graphing areas looking for pods of fish. I caught a few fish each time but considering the thick pods I fished it was tough to get them to go. This morning I finally got out and hit it a bit harder. Ive had zero luck dragging lindys through these fish. Ive gone to camping on them with slip bobbers and leeches. 15-18 feet. The bite definitely hinges on getting some wave action from the wind and that's been tough to come by. There was a window this morning where it was an alright chop and I was able to get 4 in that 14.5-16" range. I tossed back a couple that were about 19 3/4. I'd rather eat a 15" personally. But again I was on carpets of fish and it was pick one off here and there. I fished 4 different reefs for those fish. Lots of Fish flies. So annoying. I did not see substantial evidence of any may flies. I'll be up most of the next 10 days. I'd think there bite would pick up soon.
