Rose....
Walleyes are in there. If you get into them, they are going to be pretty nice sized. Some serious slab crappies in here!!!

Spirit...
Walleyes too are in there. Fished pretty hard. Crappies are probably a better choice.

6...
Not the best walleye producer. Decent panfishing lake though.

5...
Private. No public access. Need to get access from Fairhills resort and I don't think you will get much. Who knows though.

Leek...
Some walleyes. Old neighboor of mine has a 30" on his wall from there. Best bet for crappies.

Rose,
Have fished it a little for crappies. West finger or what ever you want to call it. there is a spot I'm sure you would find it full of fish houses. Crappies usually is what they catch haven't fished it in acouple years. Nice thing about that spot is there is some deep water near and you can set some tip ups up and wait to see if anything goes off. They have a lot of two digit northerns in there. Have heard of catching walleyes on the east side of the lake near the sharp drop but that is during the summer.

If your thinking around 5 and 6 why don't you take a gander at 7 (scalp) try your luck. There should be houses out there around the island just south of the access. Don't remember the lake off the top of my head for much structure just fished the lake acouple times myself but I want to say there is a ridge or an island just south of the access and also have fished the NW corner during the summer and caught some walleyes. IF you find them they are usually decent.

Good Luck Keep us posted

      We also ran into Fisky on the lake as well as at the weigh-in. He is a fun guy to share a boat seat with.....and catches lots of fish big and small. We had a 30 1/4 fairly early but struggled to find 18 - 19 inchers. Or 16 or 17's. We had 1 18 and finally kept two 14 1/2's as the day wound down.  Not getting nice unders was really unexpected. But color us very happy with the results. Good luck

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.
