Sturgeon gave you two great areas to try. Kinnie narrows is a real popular area. Along with those, I'd try the 94 bridge area for eyes. We may be out there as well, so maybe I'll see ya on the water. We put in downstream at the Bluffs.

I know alot of people fish the Kinni this time of yaer, and was wondering what works. I fish it a bit in the summer and do fairly well on nightcrawlers.
Also anyone catching sturgeon any where?

I would go large with the bait if your fishing livebait. Couldn't buy a bite with fatheads last week but worked the same areas with 6" chubs and the walleyes kept me busy all afternoon. I was just dragging a lindy with a 3/8 oz rattlin sinker in 18 to 35 feet of water. You can't let them have it very long because when they hit it they mean business, they don't mess around with the bait at all. The bait shop in Hastings had some real decent minnows. I had some luck down in Prescot also.

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      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)

      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.
