Has anybody had any luck with the sunfish yet. Was up there a while ago I did not have much luck. I am thinking of possibly doing a gill run out there this weeekend, any tips or advice on if I should go there or someplace else. I also have another question I have caught some really nice crappies during the day but always was going to fish them at night, any insight on a location where to go depth,holes,etc would be apppreciated.

Did really well out there last week, Monday and Tuesday...really nice fish too. I would imagine they have adjusted to the weather change and may be willing to bite again. Scott Steil

ds, yes I was on the Glenwood side. The fish were pretty thick in the weeds. The key was finding the right weeds. Scott Steil

I usually fish crappies on the Glenwood side out in front of the DNR Hatchery - along with about a million other people........... it's usually good in about 15-20 feet of water away from the crowd - Full moon Saturday night - should help the bite.

Last year one of my friends had one swim by his underwater camera while out sunfishing, he said it was huge. So I know their in there. I also believe I read that they were stocked in there many years ago.

I heard once that they stocked it with ski years back. Consider yourself lucky if they do stock it again smile.gif
Bad thing is, they will get a lot of opposition from people who are not knowledgeable about muskie/forage relationships. You will see a lot of people complaining because they believe muskies eat walleye, etc., etc. Before you jump on that bandwagon, step back and take a look at all the great muskie/walleye lakes where the fish have co-existed very well-
Cass, Bemidji, Mille Lacs, Leech, Deer, Winni, Lake of the Woods, and the list goes on and on.
I think Waska would be a fantastic muskie lake!

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀

      Was up over the weekend and fished Friday and Saturday for an hour or two each day.  Couldn't get a bite on a leech but rainbows were the ticket.  Walleyes were on very narrow window of feeding but when they did bite caught 6 slot fish 22-26.  All healthy and spitting up 2-6 inch perch in the net.  Green beads and Red beads on a 6 foot lindy drifting about 0.7 in 13-16 feet of water.  Find the bait balls on the sonar and look for the walleyes underneath.  No keepers but that's ok the slot fish were sure fun
