Report is a little outdated but we were up there a week and a half ago and fished for a couple hours and did ok. 5 fish, 3 between 19.5 and 22.5 and a couple smaller ones. Lots of bites, 6.5 - 10 feet of water. Leeches on a worm harnes and silver spinner.<P>Hope to get up there somewhere near the 4th and do some fishing again.<P>Mike

It has been slow at best. I've only been up once, but my fishing buddy has been up at least 4-5 times and hasn't had any real good fishing. We've been catching a few fish each time, but you have to work hard to get them. Water temps are still cold for this time of the year. The lake is at least 2 weeks behind in water temp.

Fished Saturday on the Bay. Fished all of the usual places, finger, west shore, snag-hole, sandbar. Finally found a pod of hungry fish about midway down the bar. Not another boat for 2 miles! Filled the cooler with a limit of nice eaters (had to do this since I haven't made it up much this year....and my mouth was watering) then caught and released several more.<P>Strange day, didn't catch a fish until we hit that spot,then they were jumping in the boat. We had been out for 4 hours! Then caught all of the fish in the fifth hour.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
