We have done a few night tournaments and have either been in

1st or 2nd place. We are just sitting here waiting for the spawn and shooting the 30 pounders maybe by this weekend the water will warm up enough.

isn't the spawn all over as far as the metro area rivers and lakes go?

We haven't seen any evidence of the carp spawning yet,however it should happen soon with the temps they are predicting. Water temp is the key,around 65 to 75 degree water will get them moved up and spawning.

65deg is the magic number.

I have seen rolling/spawning fish is some flooded back waters but nothing in the lakes yet. Should see it soon if we get some sun and warm temps.

Good to hear everyone is finding some success. We've been putting up bigger and bigger numbers as the season goes on and we get all the kinks worked out of the new set up on the boat. Shot 76 last Friday night for 2 guys with far from good shooting, all fish still were carrying eggs which was a little surprising seeing as the water was already 69 degrees. Like everyone else we are on high alert for the spawn to start which should be any day now. Hope everyone finds continued success throughout the remainder of the summer.

i don't have a boat, so I'm restricted to creek shooting. I have had a good year. the fish are spawned out where I can shoot, but still pick up a few. my creeks were dirty again yesterday after a fast inch and a half of rain,, hopefully they clear up again soon!

the carp are definitely going shallow in the clear lakes right now- might be eating sunny eggs as the little guys are on their nests right now

lots of shore potential at the lakes this week!

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
