Greg, I just read that you were out on Bowstring Saturday with the outdoor writer from the S/C Times. I just had to ask, was it a little cold? I was out there that same day and absolutely froze. We plopped down on my favorite crappie spot and waited for the fish to come to us as we weren't going to move in that miserable weather. Wanted to go try for some perch but we decided NO WAY!! Just had to ask!! Good luck fishing!!

hey merc,

me and a couple buddies were out there as well, on the north end. We got out there around 1100 and fished till about 3 and decided the hill in squaw lake would be a better place to be! grin.gif We only caught a few little perch and we braved the elements and moved 2x. Some guys told us they had caught some decent crappies and perch earlier in the morning. How did you guys do? We were planning on fishing Round Lake for the Squaw Lake Fire Dept's perch jerk but it got cancelled till this coming weekend.

Merc,

Oh yeah, it was cold enough out there. We moved three times before finding fish. It wouldn't of been bad if it wasn't windy out.

Jerry was up to get a few photos, etc. I tried to talk him into another weekend but it was the only one that would work for him.
We went out the next morning on a different lake for a half-day and it was even colder than the day before. Jerry said "you probably wouldn't even be fishing if I wasn't here." I answered "probably not."

bmc,

We actually did pretty well on crappies considering the miserable weather. Like I said we set up and waited and it finally paid off later in the afternoon. At first it was very slow with a fish every half hour or so and you had a lot of sorting on those. Then all of a sudden they showed up and they were pretty decent fish. Only got four perch but where we were is not typically a good perch spot. The thing I like about Bowstring is there are so many spots to try that I don't have to fish in the crowds. I look where the people are and then go off and try the spots where nobody is. Normally we get something out there, not aways limits but enough to keep our interest up anyway. We stopped and talked to somebody on the north end by the two big permanent houses and they were fishing perch but everything they were getting was very small. I'm going to try it next week again during the week. Good luck fishing!!!!

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
