The lake has been producing a lot of nice fish in spite of a giant fishfly hatch. The reefs and rock piles have had a lot of 8 pound plus fish hauled in and released. Buffalo bay (Can.) is doing well also.<P>------------------<BR><B>Old Guide Charters</B><BR>Lake of the Woods<BR><A HREF="http://fishingmn.com/oldguidecharters/" TARGET=_blank>http://fishingminnesota.com/oldguidecharters/</A><BR>Call Toll Free:1-800-952-(9484)

I'll be up late Friday night thru Monday and will plan on monitoring 82 along with Kaz. I answer to Ryan on the water but I'm debating on taking my Grandpa's old call sign for LOTW for sentimental reasons. <P>I'm planning on trying a little bit of everything. Rock piles if we can get out to them. Livebait off of Pine and out of the Gap. I'll probably use the downriggers during the middle of the day. To be honest I really haven't had any what I would call good fishing up their yet this year. It would be nice to get into some good fish one of these days. I'm hoping the weather will cooperate and stay stable. <P>I was out with my brother and a friend on Mille Lacs yesterday pulling crankbaits. We only caught one fish which we let our friend catch, but it was a nice one at 26 inches. His biggest fish so far. <P>Later, Ryan <BR>P.S. Three pictures and a kiss later she was released.

Does anyone know if the mayflys have finished hatching, are hatching now, or have yet to hatch around Kenora? I am headed up this weekend and was just curious. I have had some terrible luck in the past when they hatched.

I was checking the fishing report from Borderview and they stated that they felt that the mayfly hatch was done. I pasted in the statement at the end. Maybe one of the guys that lives up their has a better idea.<P>Excerpt from Borderview Lodge fishing report:<P>"By the way we no longer call them May Flies, they have been here in July the last two years. I think they are done for this year.<P>Get the net!"<P>Later, Ryan<P>

When I stopped at the Holiday station in Warroad 2 nights ago, there were so many fish fly's that they only had the pumps and the inside lights turned on.<P>------------------<BR>YOU CAN'T [PoorWordUsage] AN OLD [PoorWordUsage]'ER!

We fished the reefs out from Arnesen's Monday, there were still quite afew fly's floating on the water. We stopped at the Warroad Cenex station in the morning for gas and had to wipe off our shoes before reentering the pickup. The walleye were biting light, we had our best luck on crawlers and spinners.<p>[This message has been edited by Kingfisher (edited 07-21-2004).]

Thanks for the reply guys. Hopefully they have finished, but I'm just worried that they will be later on the far north end of Lake of the woods.<P>Oh well, we will be out on the water whether the fish are biting or not.

mark p, over the years I have caught a lot of walleye on LOW with lots & lots of flies on the water. You should do just fine.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.
    • gimruis
      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
