Targeting walleye prior to the season is not legal.  There is not a catch and release season before opener.   Most seasons are put in place so that people do not harass the fish while they are spawning.   Honestly, I could care less but I thought I'd give you a heads up so that you don't get ticketed.

Does anyone know if the landing near cable bay on the east end is open yet? I see it's not listed on the DNR site yet. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I do not think that it is open yet.

Check with the DNR in Tower. They should know for sure.

53 to 55 just about everywhere we went on East end over Memorial day weekend. Not really much of a leech bite happening yet.

I have heard reports of a good leech bite in some areas.

I am still using mainly pike suckers and fathead chubs with an occasional fish on 1/2 crawler.

We were up over memorial holiday on the west end. Water temps were 56-58 in Norwegian bay area. Otter ate all our minnows first night there so we switched to leeches and did very well. Only disappointment was my crappies were still hard to find in deep water.

I ran from the West to East and found 64 to 67 degree water depending on where you were located.  When the sun was out, water temps shot up to 69 to 70 range.  Folks are swimming!

Hey All -

 

Half days at work before a long vacation are the slowest, right?  Anyway, the wife is having trouble finding out the water temp to see if we are going to the beach much over the next week.  I know this usually isn't monitored as much any more this time of year, but is someone able to help a guy out? :)  Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th!

I had 64 on the west end last weekend.  I'd imagine it is pretty close to that based on the weather we have had this week.  It's gonna make for a cold bath in the lake this weekend.

Just came in.   Breeze has picked up some.   Water was pretty consistently 73-74.

      he ate pine needles and pine cones raw!!!!!!!!!

      No idea who that is.  Had to look it up though.  Born in 1911 and died in 1975.  That explains why I've never heard of him.

      Just old leather straps!!🤣🤣apparently you seem to have no problem with all the preservatives in our foods today. I know you ain't no Euiel Gibbons.

      Fished Tuesday-Thursday.  Caught a lot of 9-12 inch walleyes.  The only walleyes I caught over 12 inches were two 13 inchers and the pictured 22 inch.  Don't know where the quality eaters went.  Best action was 11am-4pm.  The walleyes were stuck on the bottom so I set my bobber so the minnow could just reach the bottom.  Then I would occasionally raise it up to entice them to bite.  Got numerous bites as I was setting the depth.  Neither the Y-store nor Vermilion Fuel & Food had rainbows so I settled on pike suckers and chubs.  Didn't catch a walleye on pike suckers the first morning so I just stuck with the chubs the rest of the trip.   Good luck fishing and enjoy the lake.

      Was up Tuesday-Thursday.  Travel by snowmobile was much better than 2 weeks ago, but still fairly bumpy.  Didn't hit any slush, but I didn't travel much off road.   There is only one road plowed out from McKinley Park now.  It heads toward the first group of fish houses to the right then turns toward Birch Island by that village.  This road was very wide and well cleared before last nights light snow.  Don't know if the wind caused much drifting with this snow.  The good road goes to just before the west end of Birch Island, then there is a small plowed road that goes behind the north side.  The slush spot from 2 weeks ago has frozen and the road is now straightened out there.  There are numerous small spur roads plowed off of the main road.  A few spurs about half way out hit some heavy slush, so that is still a concern if going off-road.   Good luck if you venture out, and be careful and courteous.  Enjoy the lake.

      Well yes, as a matter of fact I do. 🙂   Planning on heading out this afternoon to play in the arctic blast for the weekend.

      I don't think there is such a thing as cheap and sturdy. For unbreakable you may have to get away from plastics or fish on claim days. ☺️
    • gimruis
      Ballzout mounts are extremely sturdy.  They aren't cheap though.
    • gimruis
      Haha.  No.  Medium rare is fine.  I don't need to chew on a hockey puck.
