I wonder if there is any connection to the fact that when the dnr guys pull their seine on my beach they get 150 or so nice perch? Run up to 4 or 5 inches.
They seine at a number of places around the lake 4 times every July and have been for many years. This is way above what I can remember as typical. And that is without the young of the year which are still too little to show up much.
I fished last Tuesday and Wednesday. Caught 5 walleyes in Lower WF on lindy and leach. 4 of the fish were caught within an hour on Tuesday early evening. Mornings were slow both days. Heading up again on Monday for a few days. Hopefully weather will stay stable.
Carpenter's North Star Walleye Classic July 13
Big fish was 7.6 pounds and some guys from Bemidji won. That's all I can find out .
Saw a sign alongside the road while driving to

Bumping this post. Back out of 2 harbors with my nephew today. Went 3 for 7 with 2 coho and 1 laker. Nephew had a snafu with the net that cost us a 15-20lb laker at the boat. Tougher bite today. Caught coho on 7 colors of lead and Lakers came on riggers at 50'
