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.

      I haven’t fished the “scummy rummy” in Isanti County area in well over 20 years. Since the St. Croix is too high for my liking this week, I was thinking of giving it a try again. What area is considered better bass waters? I think Walbo was the spot I fished back in the day, but I’m sure the river has changed since then.

      You ever have it happen where you're pulling in a fish and think it's quite big, but when you finally get it in, it's only half as big?...😜

      Mmmm, delicious bass!

      Had a family reunion on beaver lake on Saturday. Spent the morning out on the lake and caught close to 50 bass, with a few hammer handles. Most bass were just little guys, but I did hook into a 19.5 inch beast. Early morning was real slow, but once 5 minute rain storm blew through, the action really picked up. Lake really exceeded my expectations.

      Totally agree with Del. You don't need to skip the walleye fishing altogether, but you picked a tough time of year for walleye fishing. Focus on other species which are plentiful, and then try your luck at the eyes here and there. You might get lucky with a storm front, a walleye chop, or some plain old good luck.

      You might have something there. 😀

      Yep little bit early to start thinking about ice fishing but want to upgrade my tv antenna on the fishhouse, so have a buddy that got a new fishhouse last year and it came with the King Jack antenna and he loves it so am thinking of putting it on mine, was wondering if anyone else has one and how they liked it? Also how hard is it to install???

      Chad, looks like a heck of a view. Have fun trying to decide which place to spend time at!

      I'm not a muskie guy, but you'll have better luck posting this on the lake vermilion thread
