I was up last weekend and we hit 'em hard. And we did move till we found em. Moved all night Thurs (until the youngster locked the keys in the truck ~ 8pm) ended up breaking a window while trying to pick the lock to get back in, only got in on the end of the bite that night with a few fish since we started fishing again about 10pm. Fri we found em in the same spot and couldn't keep our lines in the water. Went out of West Winds in about 12' of water. If you want some more info shoot me an email asap as I might be up there tomorrow night.

I am coming up for the 2nd time of Friday and Saturday night. I tried once last year and caught one crappie. I am bringing my Dad (who is 75) to get his rod bent hopefully on some big crappies. We could also use any kind of help on where to drive on and how far out to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can direct emails to me at turk802@yahoo.com.
Thanks!!

We just got back,and man did we hammer them!There is a few nasty spots out there,so I would advise you to check in at the bait shop at Westwind to get directions.They know where to get on the fish.We Only fished in the evening,at 6 oclock or so.If you don't catch a few within 30 min,MOVE!We moved 3 times,within 100 yards.And bang,Nonstop hogs.Another trick I,ve found,is when your bobber goes under a quarter inch,RIP IT IN THEM.If you let them take it too long,you'll miss every one of them.Good luck and be sure to meet the infamous Kelly-P,that alone is worth the trip in my mind(at least whats left of it after this weekend)
Keep setting hook! Dave

This reply is to the people that don't have much experience on URL.First you need to be fishing about a foot and a half off bottom to 2 feet.WE have done well from about 6:00pm till 10:00pm.Keep glowing those jigs!!!!If you find fish i recommend glowing every 3 minutes or after every slab pulled up..We have been fishing the south end...Green Demons...Head out about a mile.......Good luck to all....Hope you Kill'em....

Where to go?... Just go straight out of WestWind and keep going out until you reach a big wall of ice. Now don't follow any tracks that go right into that ridge, that didn't work for anyone who tried it. wink.gif
Make sure and fish near that if you can and still be alone. Alone is the key. If it is to crowded by the ridge, find the bridge and cross. Make sure it is still safe (west wind should know) and keep going after the ridge until you shake the crowd. Solo?, start hole poppin' and then you'll be bobber rockin'. smile.gif Big bodie of water, find a lonely spot and try it. I would say maybe a 20 minute time limit (after dark that is) and if none by 20 minutes, move. Good luck.

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.   
    • Getanet
      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      Nope...   320er...   Thanks for the info.. 
    • fish_time
      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.
