Hey all,

I was fishing with a friend on Graves Sunday night. We moved to our last hole to set up, then decided to head out instead. While moving the truck over to my buddy, my favorite ice rod must have fell off the back of the truck in the 25 yard move. I was just out from the access in front of the islands in the community hole ~24 feet of water. The rod is blue and black with a silver tip. My name, "Scott Mackenthun" is written on the side of the rod. Attached to the rod is a Bauer JM3 reel with orange backing. This is my favorite rod and I use the reel for fly fishing, so I would really like this one back! I am offering a $50 reward for its return, if you fish Graves much and talk to the local gang out there maybe help spread the word. I'm sure someone likely found it Monday morning as I was one of the last folks off the lake Sunday night. Please email to [email protected] if you have the rod and reel.

Thanks for your help!

It was allright, had a nice flurry near sunset, biggest fish were right around 9", no crappies yet.

Thanks for helping me out! My only hope is some good Samaritan uses google, the name is right on the rod!

      Yesterday was the first time I have noticed all of the dead smaller minnows floating around in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. Friend of mine who knows the lake as well as anyone indicated it may be perch minnows choking on spiny water fleas. If so, that's a bit disconcerting.....Can anyone confirm? Slow for me mid to late afternoon yesterday in the area fishing for walleyes..

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
