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.

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
