Made it out to 2 lakes after work today and although the crappies didnt have the feedbags on like i expected, they were still cooperative. Water temps ranged from 52-59, found fish from 2-8ft, minnnows and nippers for fish food, crappies ranged from 8-13.5, all fish were released for the next person to catch.

Pretty quiet as you mentioned, they must be getting some fish, and no time for the puter".

Open water fishing has been on the back burner for me for quite awhile but I have been out a couple times cruising around and casting a little. I haven't seen anything significant real shallow though.

Didn't get out at all because of all the rain. Ran the pontoon around Blue lake for about 10 minutes. Not much for vegetation growing yet, other than curly leaf.

I was amazed that on Blue on Wed 5/2 the weeds weren't really visable and the fish were stacked up and you could cast all around without weeds and I went back last night 5/6 and the weeds were thick and all the way to the surface in 4-6 ft of water in between the north boat launch and the channel.

Found crappies in a foot or two of water on sunday. Males are turning black and i would say there are starting to spawn with water temps reaching 60.

Same on Little Elk only took a bit of rain and then what really helped was the lightning.

Nothing the aforementioned lakes but hit the dam on Orono Lake in Elk River on Fri. between 4:30-5:30 & got a nice 15" wally, a 15" smally & a 10" crappie. Also had something that peeled about 100' of drag like crazy & then lost.

all the small fish you want in the weeds of Blue...found a few decent sunnies out there also but usually with the kid and he never wants to stay in one spot long so we keep moving...heard of a few decent reports on sunnies on Spectacle and Green also

Just got back from Blue myself. Bet I seen them out there. Picked up a few sunnies for the frying pan. Lots of Bass to be had out there indeed. Them early morning trips are the best.

I haven't fished this area much but me thinks the high water has changed things this year.

I haven't even attempted the Rum yet but I've been on Green, George, Rush, Coon and Medicine (not local, I know). Try shallow, shallow, and maybe a little shallower... There's lots of new turf for the fish to check out and feed in.

Water temps have been mid 70's tops where I've been so it's not too hot for fish to be up inside the weedlines and on up to the bank. I've looked for some of my weedline spots and for the most part they haven't really developed fully yet plus I haven't pulled so many "more" fish deep to ignore the shallow bite.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
