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.

      Sheez it's quiet here. 🙄 any ice reports. Cabin lake had about 4 inches in front of our cabin. We had to chop that much around the dock to get that out.   Our group went  3 fer 5 deer hunting. Going back up for the last weekend.

      Wow that’s a dandy!!!

      I can't believe the ice is that thick on the shoe already. There was open water on the spunk lake off 94 in Avon on Friday afternoon

      I was busy this last week butchering and killing but thx for the tips on those spots!

      I was able to get out for a bit today. Lake had good ice (5-6”) and was able to ice a few nice gills. I did get to drill about 20 holes with the drill/auger setup. Wow is all I can say. Butter smooth and FAST! Very nice, 20 holes and never dropped the battery down one bar. Just pull the trigger and go, no gas no pulling no mess. But I did have a lot of torque to deal with like I expected. The drill did great so I’m going to invest in the clam drill plate and a 6” lazer auger. I have the 8” lazer now so I should have a lot less torque and more holes per charge. As far I know from reading and YouTube the lazer auger (Hand auger) should bolt right on the plate without any other needed adapters?

      got home tonight from deer hunting and decided to check the ice.    I had trouble finding a spot to get on the ice since  it has pulled away for the shoreline.    Once I got out on the ice I found 5" of clear solid ice out as far as 100 yards.   Don

      Hopefully get the antlers back from the taxidermist tomorrow so we can score them. Should be 150+

      I think most of them moved on with the full moon last week.  I hear SE MN is still good I.e. Lake Pepin.  Reports from Mille Lacs/Leech/Winnie have been quiet.  I know some people that have been looking.  Haven’t had much of report from western MN for a week.
