15 to 1

The Croix was been unusual this season in the amount of sub legal fish to legal fish. So far this year the average is nearly 15 to 1. Keepers are coming in but just not at the usual pace. But it's hard to seriously complain about a walleye tugging on your line anyhow! Keep catchin'

If you want more keepers go big, my large cranks haven't produced nearly as many fish as jiging crawlers, but the size has been good. my fishing partner caught 5 legals on tuesday- 2 were sauger but still over 15'- also the cranks don't get as many irritating fish like sheephead, carp and small bass. and the really nice pike are always a possibility.

The size of the fish have went up, specifically the last two days. Many of these bigger fish are a solid 17 -18 inch range but the bigger 22 and 23 inch fish have started showing up! Which is great news for many anglers that had success earlier in the year but no size. Please release the over 20 inch fish because that's the future.
Livebait and cranks are taking fish - same techniques as earlier in the year but again just a lot nicer fish!Keep catchin'

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
