Walleye were shallow, odd for 70 degree water, all were caught less than 14 ft, fairly stained water but odd they are shallow in mud June ?

my brother is currently up at the cabin, yesterday he sent me a very disturbing picture, 2 actually. i'm pretty sad about this. we've had an eagles nest on the point by the cabin for years. i've watched alot of young eagles get raised there.

 

well the tree subcombed to mother nature the way it looks. pictures he sent me shows the tree the nest is in snapped off and the nest laying on the ground.  this really bums me out........sure hope they stick around and find another tree to call home on the lake!!!!!!!!!

Who's property is it? I've seen a few places where the DNR or someone put up poles with a platform on it for Eagles when their nesting tree's finally rotted out.

the property the nest sits on is owned by the state of minnesota according to the Itasca county GIS mapping.

 

i'm not real confident the DNR will do anything after my experience with the fisheries people up in grand rapids the past 2 years.?? my attitude with the DNR has changed since then, and its not for the better.

 

however you did give me an idea, thanks Leech! ?  i happen to know one of the wardens in the area, i'll have to stop and talk to him.

well i did stop and talk to the warden. he was going to email the non-game people to see what they have to say!!!!!!!!

 

bugs werent real bad either up there. got back yesterday after a week. fishing was pretty good for the most part.  had some major wind and somehow a tree missed our shed and a steel bin. not sure how, but it fell between the 2 and there is like 6-8 feet that seperate them. lots of trees snapped off or are uprooted,

the eagles seemed to have stuck around, as i did see an adult, and older one not yet fully colored and what appeared to be this years youngin sitting in the tree the nest was in.

      Da fishing hole in little falls!! We could have met for lunch

      I've been just using a plain red #4 Gatsuma hook on a 3 foot fluorocarbon leader this winter.  Pike suckers are another option for live bait if you can't find chubs or rainbows. Not a good sign for my trip up next week.  Wonder why it is so difficult to find bait up there this winter.  Seems like a lot more people are ice fishing this year.  Guess I will have to check all 3 bait stores starting at Lucky Seven.  Hope I don't have to drive to Ely.

      Finding most of my better late January fish out deeper than I was earlier this month. With the snow cover and thicker ice we have on most of our area lakes, a lot of the shallow green weeds are starting to die off or already have died off.  With conditions getting tough in the shallows on some lakes, this will push the fish a bit deeper looking for food and more comfortable habitat.   Tricked this beauty and a few of his buddies into biting today.

      Not much.  I set the house on the edge of some but it seems the slush is just under the drifts.  It’s all hard packed out here.  Maybe a foot of snow in the drifts.   The wife had epic calamity while I was out drilling in the basin.  She had a pike rush and wound up on the losing end of a “whale” that got into her rattle reel and… her favorite rod!   I got a text:     Now ISO new favorite rod.

      there are ALOT of them snot rockets in there!!!!!! matter of fact long before this new regulation came along, bowstring and sand lake thats attached via river had a 9 fish pike limit.   good luch chasing crappies....there nice ones iffin ya can find them.
    • leech~~
      Any slush around? 
    • Wanderer
      Bowstring.  All new turf for us.  Don’t even know what colors work best out here so starting from scratch.  It’s clear water though we’re starting with the standards.   Didn’t get a lot of advice at the resort but they had a couple other things going on so kinda distracted I guess.   2 more snot rockets at pizza time.
    • leech~~
      So where did you end up going? 
    • CigarGuy
      Hi Chad, everytime I go down to the mailbox, I look for your house out there. By the looks of your driveway, looks likes you haven't been up most of the winter, must be enjoying Colorado! When I was out fishing last week, there were some people out fishing near Metsa's point. Seems like when I do see people out on this end, they're usually around that area. I'll be sure to stop by!
    • Wanderer
      only been set up an hour!  High standards! 😄   2 perch and 1 pike so far though.  All small but some action anyway.  Once this pizza is done I’m going looking for crappies.
