With the opener this weekend, does anyone went by White Rock Dam close by Wheaton? Wondering if they had the dam open up or how's the water level. Any updates would be appreciated cause I'm planning to fish that stretch down to Big Stone. Thanks.

I've decided to go after all. Northern pike was all over the dam. A few eyes early in the morning and at night. The kids had a blast catching pike. They must've caught over 15 pike altogether but all released. Should be better in a few weeks when the temp get up to the 50s. Plus the water clarity is cloud/muddy.

Thanks for the report, Tullies. I imagine it was pretty muddy down there- I'm sure visibility was no good at all. Hopefully next time you get down there. I've heard there are some big gators in there- did you tie into any bigguns?

Scoot, I hooked on a decent pike but not huge. Released him. I think they're spawning now. As well as all other species. Like I said, water clarity is bad so might wait couple more weeks to give it a try again.

Do you guys know if water is flowing through the reservation dam at lake traverse? Also any fishing report from that area would be helpful. Thinking about taking a trip there this weekend before I head back to school for my graduation from SDSU.

Thanks!

I was there last weekend too. The reservation dam was open on the boat lunch side. Water is very muddy but some of the fisherman caught eyes out of there too. This weekend and next weekend should be good if you can get there before dawn or close to night fall. Let us know how you do if you get out there.

A buddy of mine went out to White Rock Dam and they closed up the dam this past Sunday. Does anyone know if they are going to open up the dam soon because I'm thinking about going there this weekend for some eyes.

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.
