I am heading back over to that strech of river in about a half hour. This is my second trip over there this weekend and I will post a report when I get back in tonight.

Going to William this weeekend to camp and probably doing the canoe run from Taylors Falls to William. Wanting to fish along the way and around the park and since I've never fished the area I'm looking for suggestions for bait, presentationa for smallies, walleye, whatever is biting. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Found a few fish again. Nothing great to talk about. The white bass started hitting close to dark on on of the wing dams. Found a few eyes there also. Trolled up a couple of walleyes on walleye divers. Make sure and check out the channels that go into the back waters. I will pull up on these spots and throw some top water baits and then switch over to jigs and lindy rigs. Catch a few fish and move on to the next. Some hold fish and some dont.
Minnows and crawlers are both taking fish. Minnows seem to be tough to keep alive now so I have been bringing some rubber imatation ones the the white bass seem to prefer over the real ones.
Good luck

I had the greatest of times out there a couple of weeks ago. My wife and I spent our Honnymoon cannoeing the Florida Everglades. Wilderness!!!

I was up there by myself exploring the "back waters" and got hiung up on downned trees.

It was great. I had to get out of my bass boat and push it off under water trees.

I didn't get much fishing in, but it was a wonderful experience. Good Luck. Barry

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
