Zebra Mussels

Fished the south east. Caught a few clam shells that were covered with Zebra Mussels. Anybody else seeing them on the south side?

Check your trailers guys/gals! I had crushed shells all over the bunks on my trailer from cove bay. I think they were all dead left over shells that were stirred up off the bottom from lots of power loading during the busy opener.

I picked some up on a clam on Agate Reef, Damm shame. Might be worth stopping at the spray-car wash and give your boat and tailer a hose down when leaving the lake. I do. There's a good one east of Isle just behind the old drive in.

remember, the young (veligers) can survive in damp carpeting on your trailer bunkers, in little pockets of water in lights, frames, etc

make sure to be really careful! the carwash is a great idea, or at least cleaning off the boat by hand and not launching in un-infested waters until a few days have passed and your trailer is dry for some time

Found a 10'chunk of old anchor rope covered with Z mussels on 3 Mile and on clams on the sand. Even if you drain all water and power wash the boat how is it possible to clean between the boat & bunks?

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      WOW!!!

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
