Thanks Zeek, good info. Where did you get it? Is there a website it's updated on regularly? <P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

Here is the website available to view a number of different graphs.<P><A HREF="http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html" TARGET=_blank>www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html</A><P>I think the best graph is called "Lake of the Woods Graph" located about 1/2 way down the page on the left hand side. This graph shows lake levels, inflow, and outflow on a daily basis.<BR>Another good graph is labeled "Historical Graphs Page" which contains a graph of the water levels for the last couple of years.

Just in case anyone is interested, here is the latest information from the LOW Control Board.<P>WET BASIN CONDITIONS LEAD TO MORE OUTFLOW INCREASES<BR> <P>Outflows will be increased on Friday, May 28 from both Lake of the Woods and Lac Seul as a result of the above-normal rainfall received in May. The Lake of the Woods Control Board is working to set the appropriate balance between the lakes and the rivers downstream in dealing with the surplus water within the drainage basin. Those affected by water levels, especially on the Winnipeg River, are encouraged to stay informed by frequently accessing this site or calling the Board's Secretariat at the number provided below. <P>Lake of the Woods outflow will be increased from 870 to 970 m3/s. Water levels on the Winnipeg River in Ontario, which have already risen about 135 cm (53 in) below the Norman Dam and 30 cm (12 in) at Minaki since early May, will rise an additional 35 cm (14 in) below Norman and 25 cm (10 in) at Minaki. At Nutimik Lake in Manitoba, water levels have already climbed over 80 cm (32 in) and will rise an additional 15-25 cm (6-10 in). If additional rainfall is received, further river flow increases may result, leading to even higher levels. <P><BR>The current level of Lake of the Woods is 323.16 m (1060.2 ft). The lake has risen more than 40 cm (16 in) since early May and is now 37 cm (15 in) above median for this time of year. The lake is 75 cm (30 in) higher than it was a year ago during the dry conditions of 2003. Lake of the Woods will rise an additional 5-10 cm (2-4 in) over the next week and could rise 10-25 cm (4-10 in) over the next 2-3 weeks, depending on further rainfall. <P> <BR>

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.

      I bought a used boat and I had the dealer install my Lowrance HDS on the dash. There was already two Lowrance units that came with the Boat. One mounted in the bow and the other in the dash. So when the dealer installed my HDS, the networked it to the older unit from the dash. My sonar on the HDS would only work if the dash unit was on. I really don’t know the advantages of doing this?  Anyways, this past weekend I landed the boat and the dash unit wouldn’t power up. I checked and I did have power going to the unit. Hence no sonar. I had to go old school and caught 10 eyes! Lol so my question is how do I bypass the network so I can just run the HDS? Thanks!

      Have you tried cleaning it? I have found more often than not when someone tells me their foot pedal isn't working right, I can take it apart, clean it up, lubricate it, and everything works again. If you try this, avoid grease or oil because dirt collects. I used WD-40 and it seemed to work well.
