Does anyone know if the shinners are still running on Ottertail ? Does 'Kens Bait Shop' still have them ? I fished Ottertail on opener weekend and did pretty well. I'll be out there again this weekend and was wondering if the fish moved to a different holding pattern?

I was catching eyes by drifting with a 9 foot lindy rig, with a white hook. What else works ? Thanks

I've found the blue/glow 3/8ths oz scenic tackle jig tipped with a shiner does pretty well out there when the walleyes are in that 15 to 25 ft range. Night fishing crankbaits on the flats is one of my favorite ways. Lindy rigging shiners turns its fair share of fish also. Right now as long as theres fish under your boat you really cant go wrong...

When tossing crankbaits at night, how deep are you? I'm staying at Three Season Resort this weekend. Are there good flats to fish at night near there ? I've heard good things about Greenwood Flats, where are those located?

They are located south of the pier. If you know where the greenwood apartments are just straight out from those.

Thers also the Amor flats that are close to you if your at 3 seasons.
Just do a little scouting during the day to find the location.
the best way i can explain it is, they are on the North side, but NOT past the point,
when scouting you should be able to see Amor park, pull your cranks out there at night too,
try going in and out as well, instead of back and forth, they run pretty shallow from shore pretty far out into the lake.
Heck, I've even had pretty good luck pulling cranks going back and forth from the camp grounds up to about when your inline with the access near Zorbaz, and then even in fron of 3 seasons,Barkeys, nifty nook, as far as that goes.

      If ever a person wanted to accelerate their learning curve on Osakis, this would be a good time to do it! I’ll try to keep it open but I never know what’s going to happen with the kids wedding coming up - at our house - in September. Thanks for putting this on Borch. 😎

      I haven’t fished it but would use chubs like you mentioned if I did. Good luck ozzie.

      Does anyone know where I can rent and/or use a paddle board on Vermilion? Thanks!

      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.
