Going to be up at the family cabin for a long weekend this week. Located by Splithand Lakes. Anywhere to do some good shore fishing? Looking for anything maybe a few pannies for the dinner table but the rest will be catch / photo / release!!!!

Who says tournaments are bad for fishing. Since I started in them this year, I am strictly take a few for the dinner table (pan fish only), release everything else!!!

These spots are a little hike but are good spots. The miss. river below the dam @ Winni is good, I know the water levels are down so that may affect the fishing? There is a fishing peer by the narrows on Cutfoot right off of 46 (across from the landing and Cutfoot souix resort)that can be good. I know alot of people that have done well this time of year fishing around the bridge between Litte Sand and Rice lakes up in the Max area. Good luck!!

Most times there's not enough water down there for minnows.

Yeah, there have been a few people fishing below the Blandin Dam,not sure how it is though(bring waders. There are also fishing piers below the dam on the mississippi between rapids and cohasset and a pier on forest lake. And there also some lakes in the soumi hills you can walk into for bass and trout. Last night I saw some folks shore fishing under the bridge across from charmaster and you can always sit on tioga pit and try for trout. Hope that helps. Good luck and tightlines!

Hey Taxman
I grew up in Grand Rapids. If you are looking for a few walleyes. I used to fish alot below the Damm just West of town on Hwy 2. There are usally alot of people there but it is worth it at times. Use a small jig 1/16 with a shiner. I know this sounds a little weird, but that size jig bounces off the bottem with fewer snags. Cast to the edge of the heavy current and let your jig float down the current. You will feel it rolling off the rocks on the bottem. Make sure you keep the line taunght(sp) You will feel the difference between bottem and a walleye hitting. Hold the rod for a couple seconds after getting a hit, Then set the hook. If you don't connect give it more time on your next bight. Hope this helps

      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.
