8/9 report

It looked like it wasn't going to happen this weekend! Trip to the clinic on friday morning with the youngest and yep strep throat! He could'nt swallow so he had to take a shot to the leg! OUCH! But by Sat. morning he was bouncin around and ready to go.
Lots of sportboat traffic due to the Floe wedding sat. night! Very spectacular! also made for some great evening entertainment.
I head as far away from the traffic as possible with a couple of additional teens that we were watching over the weekend.

Belle horn bay:
Fished in front of the prarie river inlet and picked up a couple of eyes but were small at best. Also small pike. Dragin blades. Colorados and there was no preference on what they wanted. Left when the boats started to come in.

Battle island:
This seemed to be the place to be. We picked up 3-4 that could of went in the livewell if we were keeping. There is a weedline south of the island next to a single bouy. Drops hard to the east and levels out to 6 to 9 feet to the west. Stay as close as possible to the weeds. Once agian hammered copper at 7ft long leaders was the hot ticket. We also were using various sizes of blades and the bigger seamed to be the better. The eyes were as gold as rings! Quite the sight for the youngsters in the boat.

Cor of Eng campground:
If your looking to get in there it stays pretty packed over the month of august. I will let you know the have drive in sights available that can not be resereved. Fabulous place for kids.
Funny note:
I did talk one of the kids into kissing the first walley to give him better luck! Bad thing was he got spined by the eye just as he puckered up! Still makes me laugh.

Hey Burr!

Have you heard of any Crappie reports coming off Big Sandy, specifically Bell Horn Bay?

Good fishing,

All my crappie reports were old and was told a week ago they were slowing down (moving from known spots). Sorry but would try the old dead pine tree early in the morning.

      Many people come on this forum asking for help, but I'm begging much more sincerely.   60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly pay one of you a NICE tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   I'm still begging.... could you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
