Only four posts in the past two weeks, the last coming five days ago. Did you guys stop fishing up there or what? Or maybe you're just fishing so much, you can't get to your computers. Anyway, I'll break the ice. No particular topic, just how's the fishing up there? We vacation a week every year in June on Clitherall, but I'm always interested how things are going on any lake. Here's a question: I'm thinking about adding a family trip in the late summer to my usual itinerary of going just with "the boys" in June for our annual week of great fishing, beer drinking, and wonderful deep-fried and grilled food. Is the weather cooling off any there say around the middle of August, or is it still blazing hot? Don't want to roast in a hot cabin but have to come before school starts. Also, how's fishing around mid-August? Thanks guys.

It's dead during the day! 17 hours in my boat in 2 days with little to show for it all. I fished a tourney on OT Sat. and Sunday just fishing another area lake. Major algae bloom on some lakes because of the dead still, hot, cloudless weather. I've heard of major (pan)fish kills on a couple area lakes due to the weather.

We need cooler weather and wind!

Walleyes are hanging on their mid-lake structure and it's a feeding frenzy at night. The eyes are laying belly to the bottom during the day. Just another couple weeks and things will be picking up again.

Hey guys I've been up on lake of the woods playing for the past few days.. The no wind thing was welcomed over the weekend for me! lolol We caught some pretty decent fish on the rockpiles out from warroad. Sunday I was out with Curt Quesnell and we fished WAaayyyy out there, trolling crankbaits on downriggers, that was alot of fun, lots of fish in 30+ ft of water out in no mans land. Just from my observations they were taking cover under a very large cloud of algae bloom, looking for shade and an easy meal..Ottertail now seems so small. I'm looking forward to fall. Paul

Paul,

I talked to Shano on Monday and they were
running the riggers halfway down all day
Sunday.

I need to spend about 3 good long days out
pullin plugs with a detail man like you.
I think there are many secrets to be learned.

Thank goodness the wind laid down for us,
wind or no wind doesnt seem to affect the
deep fish as much.

A great weekend of fishing even if it meant
the demise of my two favorite spinner rods.

Curt

Hey Curty!
That would explain why he was letting so much line out behind his ball..Use the precision trolling handbook and consider your ball your rod tip and run your baits and balls accordingly. Those walker releases are a pretty slick deal. just the ticket for what we were doing. The cannon releases are just way too touchy for what I do. The off shore tackle releases might work but the walkers are the clear ticket in my book. Keep your nose to the grindstone and you should be able to blow shano out of the water. I think I might have a trick or two up my sleeve :-) heheh Good fishin!! Paul
