Oh that was you Beerbatter?-we kept saying , I wonder if that guy knows were catching all these fish! Ha! It seems like you're alone when you're not bumping into 25 other boats like up towards Tamarack point. You can always find a "nice honeyhole" on Winnie. How much of a lead do you usually have between sinker and hook? I've tried up to 7 ft. last few times(regardless of wind) and had great success,while boatmates didnt, at 3 ft. Of course,jigging is good too. Good Tuggin!!

I was using a 1/4 oz jig and a 3/8 oz fireball with either a fathead or shiner. My uncle had some success with a shadrap.

Just left Winnie today ..had to come home early cause of a family emergency.
Had a so so week. First few days starting Saturdy found us on The dishes working the 7 to 10 ft depths. Most of our fish come from 9 to 10 ft. Tuesday found us wandering elsewhere. We tryed Tamarack Point with limited success...we did watch a boat from Indiana catch Walleye left and right and not check one fish for length! We watched for aprox. 45 minutes as these two old dudes pulled in at least 8 fish and I KNOW some were over the slot. Wed we headed for Mallard and did pretty good. The wife and I threw back several over the slot and got a few keepers as well. On our way back to Cutfoot we stopped at the rock piles on the north end and made a few passes and watched one boat catch a nice wally in the 26" range it was a nice fish that got thrown back...YES!
Thursday fished Cutfoot filled the 3 empty walleye spaces avalable in the freezer, packed up after a phone call and came home. All our fish were caught on Green fire ball or Glow jigs and shiners. no hits on Leeches or crawlers

Trux,
It looks like you had a good trip. Why is it that many times out of towners(Indiana) confirm what we already know? I wonder many limits of fish they'll be taking home? Did you do any lindy rigging or did you strictly fish jigs? Were there any reports of fish being caught on leeches?

Wallter: I did lindy rig Rebel bar and an unamed one to the south west of rebel lay a email addy and I can give you some gps data
Got some hits on leeches but nothing on crawlers. Weather was rather cold begining of the week but warmed considerably by wed. I was hoping to get some action on the bars too but it wasn't in the cards so stuck pretty much to Jigs and shiners. That was a rather expensive venture it self at 4.50 a dozen for shiners but we had a good time

And By the Way I HOPE THOSE OLD DUDES GET CHECKED!! If we all have to abide by the rules so should our out of state visitors! They sure would bum out if the DNR took there nice shiny Indiana licensed boat and auctioned it off to one of us less fortunate fisherpersons!

Trux,
I would like those GPS spots., but am a rookie on the computer and can't fugure out how to e-mail you directly. Any help would be great. I understand that you probably don't want everyone to have your e-mail. Your e-mail address does not show up on your profile.

By the way have you ever noticed how much the out of town crowd likes to clean perch?
WOW!!!

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
