Just wondering how the bass bite has been recently. Are the fish pretty well situated into summer patterns? Also, have the water levels came done to a more normal level. The last time i was up the high water pushed some of the fish out of some of their typical haunts. I plan on being up in the area this weekend and im just looking for a little bit of info.
Also, what have the muskie reports been like on lobster. I might try for some muskies a little this weekend.

thanks in advance,

kt

Hey smallie,

I see you've had a pretty good summer so far fishing tournaments. Thats good to see.

As far as Lake Oscar goes, i haven't made it out their yet this summer. But now that you mention it i think im gonna have to give it a try next time i make it up to the area. I'd definetly like to hook into one of those 5 1/2 lbers you mentioned.

I was up over this past weekend and made it out to the chain sunday afternoon. We fished from about noon to 4:00, which probably wasn't the best timing. Lots of boat traffic. We didn't have the best success, caught a couple two pounders on the big point that comes off the western shore in geneva and a couple more in the western bay on le homme dieu. The rest of the bass were all under 2 lbs. I think next time we fish it we either need to try earlier in the morning or later in the evening.

If i make it out to oscar next time im up i'll let you know how i did.

Good luck with the rest of your tournaments.

Smallie,

I looked back in the archives and found the info you gave me about oscar last year. A lot of good stuff, i'll have to put it to use. I really appreciate all the info and insight you've given me on this forum. It is a big help, especially to someone who doesn't get to fish the area as much as id like to. Once again, thanks and good fishing.

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
