Fished the west side Friday and Saturday, certainly not fast and furious but fishing was pretty darn good.....Finally!!! Water temps ranged about 61 to 64. Had to do some searching and work the spot just right but we found nice fish at a couple of different locations away from the big packs. About a 1/3 of our fish were over the 19.5 mark. We used a non traditional type of spinner rig and I think this was key as the other boats that flocked in on us were'nt getting them near as well as these things did. Fish bit Crawlers and Leeches about equal, minnows picked up a few as well.<P>Saturday afternoon around 4ish saw a nice storm cell bombard the south shore with rain and hail. The radio chatter made it sound like it was miserable for some of the brave folks that dared stay out while this passed!<P>Spoke with friends that fished shallow water near Twin on Friday and they did pretty well. Other folks I spoke with did well near Willow creek on Friday afternoon.<P>Water has warmed up nicely now so the fishing should be pretty good for a few weeks yet in the shallows.<P>fiskyknut<P>

I was up Wed-Sat out of Wheelers point area. Fishing was a little slow, but we did better than most. We caught fish anywhere from 7 feet to 26 feet, but most were 13-17 Minnows were the best bait. The bite was very light. The key was S L O W!! Dead stopped vertical jigging landed me a 27" eye on Saturday. <P>Good Luck

Two of us fished Buffalo yesterday, it was a little slow for me, my partner using a copper spinner and night crawler, out- fished me 3 to 1. I was using hammered gold and chartreuse spinners and crawlers. We kept 11 eaters. Water temp yesterday was 59-60 degrees with a good old east wind. A fun day on the "Pond".

      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.
