Thanks

Latest walleye reports from Minnewaska has been a night bite. Best bet has been after dark on the edges of the rock piles on the east side in 14-20 feet with leeches and crawlers on spinner rigs.

If the 'eyes don't cooperate, try fishin the smallies. small jigs and tubes in the same areas just before dark.

good luck and good fishing...

Mr. Ghotierman,

I'm going to be in Glenwood that weekend and in to the next week too. I'm wondering if there is any point to going to Emily. The bite must have died or people aren't talking.

Maybe I'll stop in to the store and say howdy.
Thanks.

Mrmom...

Haven't hear any new info for Emily. We've had some hot muggy weather of late, that may have tightened the lips on those 'eyes. Getting some cooler nights now, though. Some lake temps have dropped almost 10 degrees. So you might hit it just right. Give it a go and see how you do...

good luck and good fishing!

Hey Ghotierman!

Was staying on Pelican lake by Glenwood. I did get out on that lake and did catch a 17 inch walleye in 19 feet of water trolling a storm thunderstick in perch color. I was planning on hitting Minnewaska tuesday night. Unfortunately, my son had a medical emergency tuesday afternoon and he and I ended up at Gillette hospital in St. Paul. He's fine now.

So I still haven't hit Emily. Next chance is mid-September. I'll keep you posted...Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I had to leave the boat behind at the in-laws in Brooten. If it were June I would be crying!

I know what you mean about the weeds. There are these old guys on a pontoon who are out on Goose Lake (over by Rush City, E central MN) just about every day all summer. We call them "the slip bobber boys". They slip bobber walleyes in the weeds and everybody who has never talked to them thinks they are sunfishing. They do get sunnies too and they run big in that lake.

Anyway, thanks for the info. I'll check in with you next time I go out west. I think it will be soon. I can hear my boat calling me.

mistermom

ps Just curious: Do you know about lake ------- ? It is real near my in-laws, has no developement on it, the dnr just put in a decent ramp a few years ago, and there probably is a state record largemouth swimming in it. The dnr just started stocking walleyes about 5 years ago and the max depth is about 13 feet. Just wondering if you are familiar with this lake. I don't want to say the name because it already is a lot less of a secret then it was 10 years ago.

DNR reports aren't always accurate. Max depth is at least 13' right now and the lake is/was down.

Mister Mom ,
I don't know if you fish this lake or not but I know I wouldn't be posting info about it. This is a nice lake but it has gotten to muck attention in the past few years.

This lake cant support people taking big fish out of there.

I think if you look back through the thread you will see that mistermom did not mention the name of the lake. Skeets did. Mistermom was just asking Ghotierman if he was familiar with lake *******. Then others started piecing it together. Mistermom should have not said anything. But he tried to be discreet.

I apologize. My bad. I was just trying to give a heads-up to Ghotierman because he had been helpful to me with questions. Smallie is right. This lake is a definet catch and release lake....Now lets all stop posting and this topic will fade away.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Actually, merc has Verado and "four strokes" . I have seen a fair number of mercs on west end but very few verado which have a distinct silhouette.

      Not as easy to find bullheads in the chain as it was in the 80s-90s.... but you will still get a few here and there. The cats took care of most of the bullies over the yrs😉

      All sizes.  no bullheads in the chain.

      My wife, son and I we're on Crystal Lake in Burnsville several years ago. My son was 14-1/2 yrs. old at the time, I use to let him drive the gravel roads up at deer camp all the time and let him back the trailer into the spot, he got pretty good at it. Anyway, back to the boat ramp at Crystal Lake. I dropped the wife and son off on the dock and waited my turn to load up...a local cop was at the ramp and my wife asked if it was ok if he backed in, he didn't mind.. vehicles were waiting and my son drops it in on the first try! Proud dad moment 👍👍

      That's how my dad taught me Tom! Got practice almost every night with the atv trailer when I turned 16 and could ice fish by myself. Once the summer rolled around a boat was a piece of cake!
