Walleye still being caught on leeches, or are people seeing a switch to crawlers?  Got some nieces and nephews up this weekend, and would like to help them put a few in the boat.  Thanks, Matt

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.

Marked a lot of fish on midlake humps, a lot of inactive fish, but the ones that did bite were pigs in 3 hours we got 2 29s,26,24. Man are those fish crazy fat. The 29 was my new PB.

 

 

That is a nice fish! Congrats on the PB.

Congratulations bassbouncer.  How do they score the 20-26" slot fish when you can't possess them?

Catch, picture, release. They have a chart that gives the weight for the fish that you catch. The picture of the fish needs to be with it laying on their ruler which they give you at the start of the day

At the start of the day each boat gets a blank SD card, a ruler, and a couple scorecards to keep track of the fish. Pictures of the left side of the fish are taken on the ruler and the right side of the fish while someone holds it. We needed to bring a digital camera with

Bassbouncer, only the first 5 fish taken in pictures or can you replace  a smaller fish with a bigger one later?  The 44 lb winner is crazy; 8.8 lb/walleye average.

 Catch as many as you can and the 5 largest count. I would say that their weight chart is skewed heavier than normal but it’s the same for everyone. In my opinion a 28” fish weighs 8# and their chart has it weighing over 9#. The winners had (3) 27-3/4, (1) 28-1/2, and a 26-3/4

      Looking to trade for a Mossberg 510 mini. Ive got B2's or other waterfowl equipment. Possibly a 9.8 merc that needs an impeller. Tell me what you want.

      I dunno @LoonASea, I used to wonder the same thing.  But I have seen several floaters plucked off the water’s surface by eagles before they were completely dead.   I had the same comment about hooking mortality on Mille Lacs; how can they say such things without seeing a bunch of floaters?  Then I started hearing from friends that actually fish the lake that say they see them often since the tight slots have come into effect.     Rush Lake by Rush City had reports of hundreds of dead crappies under the ice by Crane Island.  A deep hole I’ve fished myself and put back lots of crappies I’ve had to close the mouth on to get them to swim back down the hole.  Made me wonder...   What I like about the ND study is it’s actually a study, not just feelings or intuition.  I don’t like the news any more than most with the exception that it lends some reference to an often debated topic.  Some “proof” if you will.  I’ve felt this to be an issue for several years already but didn’t have anything to refer to except my own personal experiences.  So I’ll continue to fish with this information in mind and continue to look for more.

      On Gen 1 build I uses a 720p camera I sealed inside a small flashlight. On Gen 2 I purchased the camera, cable olreadr on a reel with a 1200TVL resolution. From what I can determine it should equal or better than Gen 1. Video of the Gen 1. Gen 2 not complete till after ice out.

      Hello, I am new to this site but came here in hopes someone...anyone can point me in a direction to purchase Minnesota wild rice to plant.  I live in Maine and want to plant some in my farm pond for myself and my ducks.  Any info is greatly appreciated as I am only able to find parched rice on line.   Thank you for any direction you can point me in.  Respectfully, Lora-Jean

      If catching a fish out of water too deep for a safe release and releasing it ,,,,, Why arent the cabin / lakeshore owners complaining about lots of dead fish washing up on shore??? ,,, Do they sink to the bottom ,,,they cant all be eaten by birds

      mbeyer, can't be from this year, can it?
    • JerkinLips
      Colder weather is better for the venison, but the warm days were sure nice for sitting in the stand or in the boat that year.

      On a better note, I left the North Arm and headed south. Had fun playing with my new Garmin Live Scope. I probably would not have caught anything today without it. The fish were there but extremely picky. You had to use just the right action to entice a hit. Kinda like ice fishing for stubborn walleyes. Very small lure as well. I caught everything vertical jigging where I could see how the fish were reacting - nothing casting.   Would have weighed in about 18 pounds if I had been in the tournament. Maybe I should enter - then if I see you catch a fish, I can hover right over your spot. Apparently paying an entry fee allows you to disrespect other fishermen.     Rainy2019-9-14.mp4

      Idiot loose on Rainy!   Day started out nice and then on my first spot am anchored up for 30 minuters and casting about 50 feet away on a reef. Here comes a big Ranger headed right at me. I figure it must be one of my buddies to come so close but I don't recognize him. Does he stop at 100 feet away? NO. Does he stop 50 feet away - NO. How about 25 feet? again no, He come withing 10 feet and then says," SORRY TO CROWD YOU BUT I AM IN A BASS TOURNAMENTt" !!!?? Then he proceeds to go right where I am casting - I lose it and go ballistic. Why does he think you can hover right over where somebody is casting? IDIOT! Whole lake to fish and he has to start TEN feet from my boat.   I left the North Arm where I had planned to spend the day. Didn't need to run into any more jerks. Went south. Ended up with about an 18 pound bag of 5 bass. See next video for more enjoyable viewing.   https://youtu.be/aGgdkHGLkvM Idiot_tournament_fisherman..mp4
