I heard, and it looked like there was a tourney out there over the weekend.  But wow, was the lake riled up with the winds. I’m glad I wasn’t fishing it.

My son has been there through last week to present,. The wind has been pretty bad the last few days that has minimized his fishing areas. 

on June 9 & 10 him and two others in the boat landed 134 fish, mostly bass but did have several Walleye, Northern and one Musky. All were in 10 feet of water or less and he fished with ned rigs worms, tubes, flukes and spinner baits. Water temperatures ranged from 61 in the AM to 67 late in the day. Conditions were sunny and windy.

I will be headed their tomorrow from Oklahoma and will be fishing June 14, 15 & 16 with my son.

The full moon phase will be June 17 so I hope to have good fishing in the shallows along with Bass a wave of Bass spawning.

We have been flooded out of our lakes and most all ramps and access areas still remain closed due to high water levels.

I will write another fishing report by mid next week once I get back from my fishing trip.

Good luck @Mark Gottula


Thanks for the report.  It’s interesting to see as many out of staters coming to our neck of the woods to fish the smallies.  It’s  been so many years that I’ve only talked to locals heading south to try your waters, mostly to chase bass in the winter.


Welcome and have a good time.

I have been out there twice since the 1st of June to target smallmouth.  The first trip was good, the second not so much.  They were pre-spawn the first time and more willing to bite.  The second trip they may have already been post spawn or still spawning and they were not as willing.  The second trip was also much windier and boat control was an issue.  My folks have been out on the main lake several times since opener targeting walleyes with live bait and they have done well.  They average 25 fish/day and most of them are in the 22-27 inch range with the biggest being 27.5 inches.  I heard there was a huge bug hatch recently.  When I was last out there a week ago the water temp was 66 degrees.  If the wind is blowing, you'll need a really big boat to get out to the flats and walleye fish because there's 4 foot waves.

      Although no children of my own, I am incredibly thankful for my two nephews! They are my best pals and both like fishing, actually they like casting and playing with the worms. All part of the experience. I'm thankful for support from my mother and sister and to have friends that take me fishing. The last two years have been long days at the libraries and the hospital for graduate school so this forum has been nice to visit, read the reports, the stories and see pictures, essentially I've lived vicariously through many of you and I am grateful for that

      Mice the goldies are starting to color up again. They ate well here this winter. Cranes sound so cool!

      As I get older I find my appreciation and respect for time over material has grown tremendously. I appreciate long sunny days fishing with good friends. I appreciate my family, not nearly as m a's ny as there once was... but I love who's left❤  I appreciate my health, have been very healthy up untill this last yr😊 Hopefully I still have a few good yrs left😏  I appreciate my friends, some of them have been putting up with me since I was pretty young...lol   Very fortunate to have some close buddies. I appreciate HSO/FM...and all the great people I have met and or shared time on the water with because of this site😊

      Been many years since I had done the smelt netting, I was 15 at that time with the boy scouts of New London, mn.  Saw a program of guys doing it through the ice,  now that ice conditions are getting iffy, now I'm getting the bug to hit the lakes.  The Ice went out today on Buffalo lake, the water is going up, the crow river is backing up into the lakes.   Has anybody tired smelt fishing grindstone lake?  Looking for other lakes that may have those tasty little fish.

      Finally did a quick walk of my main hunting property yesterday evening.  Plenty of turkey sign even though I didnt see or hear any turkeys. Looking good.

      The red-wing blackbirds and robin's are back at my feeders with the dark eyed juncos hopping around. Lots of yellow finches this year! Plus I could have sworn I heard a sandhill crane the other day while hiking.
