I know we are way behind schedule on water temps, but I was wondering if there have been any bug hatches yet? Thanks

Hello!  I am located in Pike Bay and we have had several hatches in the last week.

Started to see some around the Daisy Bay area last weekend.  No big numbers in the air yet, but did see some clouds on the graph.

Seen a few on the surface in the last week but no full blown hatch here yet near Bowstring, Winnie/Cut Foot. Some big clouds over the deeper mud on the graph too. Had just < 67* surface temps last night & early today.

Just to update the thread...in Big Bay the Mayflies seemed to really start to show up in numbers over the course of 4th of July weekend. We would wake up each morning to more and more Mayflies near the lights. When we woke up to leave yesterday morning the ground, vehicles, and cabin was covered in them. Seems like they are full go in Big Bay.

Big Bay is in full hatch mode.  Started on Friday with a few bugs, and went to full hatch on Sunday night.

There are some down here in Head-o-Lakes and Wakemup...  Nothing massive at this time.

Some of my best walleye fishing has happened during the hatch. I think that it was usually more dumb luck than skill....actually, I'll confirm that.

SkunkedAgain, what is your technique during the mayfly hatch?

Fishing in my buddy's boat! He normally outfishes me 5-1 but if we're in his boat together on a hatch, I'll outfish him 5-1 on minnow and jig.

On Big Bay it appears that the current Mayfly hatch may be about over.  We had some overnight, but it is a small fraction of what it was Sat-Tue.

      From where it is, I would guess ATT if anything.     https://www.att.com/maps/wireless-coverage.html (zoom in and enter zip code for that area.  Cook is 55723 so that's a start.  Looks like ATT has coverage.  Tmobile roams on ATT.

      Heard browns fight but nothing like steelhead. took probably 20 min to get mine in. 
    • bigpunfun
      I've personally spent years catching crappie with minnows.  Usually I will drop a dead stick with a minnow and jig another line with a waxie. Have similar luck on each rod. Always depends on what the fish want of course. I like to give them the most options.

      Always dreamed of getting out and exploring other great lakes. Got to fish Lake Superior a few times out of Duluth and it changes my ice fishing life!
    • bigpunfun
      Heading to the Virginia Mn area Ice fishing in a few weeks. I've fished the Duluth area most of my life but finally spreading out a bit.  Not hoping to get anyones "spot". How are ice conditions? Anywhere to stay away from safety wise? Any dead lakes that would be a waste of my time on a limited trip? Thanks yall

      Always looks like a blast with those jawjackers or auto fisherman.  Fighting those big Browns and steelhead on a short rod through a hole in the ice on light line would be fun.
