the're driving everything from cars to suburbans. lots of ice seems safe enough but ya never know so be careful anyways. fishing is still real slow out there a few walleyes here and there but as for crappies i havent heard anything good nobody can seem to find em yet. for walleyes go right out in front of the resort with all the houses. there were people goin down to the southeast corner of the lake so maybe they know somethin the're not sharin but for there id take a wheeler its a long way to chance a vehicle. good luck let me know how you did.

I might possibly be there also heading up tonight. Maybe fish it tonight. Where going to go fish black duck after then maybe l.o.w. if nothings happening there. anyways... fished neither of those spots fished out by the rock pile just off it in about 19-20 foot, thats where we caught the crappies and had tip ups in 14 for the eyes. Kind of slow but you should catch few fish. Give a report.

aight just up there sunday. fished the sunken island, is that the rock pile? caught a few perch in 20-21ft during the day. and only one stinkin crappie right at night. the cold front hit really bad though on sunday. just my luck always hitting the cold front, then tomorrow is going to be high 40's frown.gif
looked like everyone else was getting skunked also. only a few fish being caught. except for those perch, that suprised me. for some reason there seemed to be a plankton fiasco right under me at dark. my gain was at 0 and i could see lines suspending all over, and it wasn't fish. only spotted a few crappie but they really didn't want to bite except for that one. it hit my jig 4 times and each time i brought it back down it hit it again. till i finally caught him. got 15-20 perch over 8 inches though. only kept the 10"+.

Good Luck Stickin Dos PigZ!

      Rough weekend at the lake... but still better than any day at work! I managed to get out for a few hours Saturday morning and then got off the lake when the storms rolled in and stayed off. I threw for muskies for a few hours but didn't move any and then switched to smallies and boated a few on rock piles.  We were stuck for a while on Saturday with the road near Camp Vermilion washed out. Looks like the whole area got quite a bit of water. How'd everyone else fare?

      Does anyone know if you can get a digital thermostat for the roof top AC units? I have a coleman mach 3 plus. The fan constantly stays on and is super loud. But it does work really well for cooling. Any help would be appreciated.

      Spent the weekend on Ottertail, fishing tough. Waves 1 to 3 ft. 4" rain Sat. night, on/off rain all weekend. Caught a few biggest 18". Water crystal clear 15+ ft, even with waves, due to millions of Zebra Mussel in lake. Weeds and clam shells had many Zebras attached. Still better than working.

      My intent is not to bash here. Many Rapalas are great lures but a heads up I had 5 of them on the casting deck of the boat in the heat within 3 hours every one of the split from the heat!!! Wow that was money down the tubes. I have never had that happen. Also it is never a good idea to slap a lure to get weeds off I'm aware of that nonetheless my bride slapped her's to get a weed off nothing violent but what she got back was a lure in pieces. I love many of the lures but wont be buying any off those again. I have had the lips pull out on the Shad Raps before. My favorite is the Fat raps those are indestructible.

      It happens.  If you timed if post-spawn, its definitely tougher.  It takes them a while to recover and get into their summer pattern.

      Stovetop?  Walleye on west end is tough because there are fewer and they are mostly larger fish that don't seem to behave the same way as smaller ones.

      Pike should be working well on the deep weedlines leading into the two slop bays that Del mentioned. They are commonly calle "The Nursery". Largies should be anywhere in the weeds. Del also hit the nail on the head about the Windsock island and the bay behind it. The windsock island area can be a good walleye producer in the early mornings and sometimes in the evenings. Don't forget to try the larger "bay" (really more of an indentation) past the Windsock island and its associated bay. Lots of boulders in there so be careful, you'll see some shiny rocks! I've had good success in there  for both species of bass and pike, lots of nice sunnies too. There is a reef that runs from the point directly out across Norwegian from the resort marina and runs from there to the other shore running to the northeast. Good spot for the evening walleye bite. You'll probably also want to try fishing the Merry Go Round and the Stovepipe on Wak-Em-Up Bay for walleyes and smallies. I'll try to post more info when I have a bit more time!

      Thanks for the heads up. You going over weed tops or deep?
    • MinnowBuckets
      Is anyone doing well for smallies or walleyes on the river right now? I haven’t been out in over a week and the water has gotten pretty muddy with the recent rain.

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.
