We got about 4" last night.Even though the tenters by the lake didnt think so, the lakes around here sure needed that.Jessie has come up about 6" so far,but we still could use some more rain.
Some nice fish were caught before the storm including a 27" walleye.

I great we finally got some rain, hard time getting the boat off the lift, looks like more heading that way today. The eye action seems to have picked up lately, the nice eaters are hitting, put back a few big ones 19+, and another pout. That makes 4 for the year.

That's great news, using an oar to get to and away from the dock is not much fun. Jessie was as low as I've ever seen it over the 4th of July weekend, hopefully the levels will continue to rise. I caught only three walleyes for that weekend, but they were all over my 20" personal slot limit, including a 26"er, all are still swimming in Jessie.

A 'pout in the summer? Interesting, I thought dem tings only ate in the winter. LOL

Being the sensitive man I am, I also got a nasty case of swimmers itch while clearing a small area around the dock. grin.gif The look of my legs would scare away the masses. shocked.gif

Here's to hoping the rain gods continue to pour down on Jessie.

Duffman,
From what i seen from the lake those legs could scare off the masses without the itch tongue.gif. With the warmer temps anywhere on the beach in the small weeds your going to get itch. Just make sure you are wearing a suit for protection if you know what i mean. When is the next ime you are up?

Got a new boat smile.gif, Black Lund Rebel w/yam, so dont stop the blue lund, thats my son or dad.

Hey now Mike! At least I kept my shirt on! grin.gif

I'm not sure when I'll be up next. Summer plans are filling up fast. I'm camping weekends on both sides of Labor Day weekend. So I'll probably hang in the cities for the holiday weekend. Do you have a neighbor on either side of you that I could leave them aerial photo plots of Jessie with, if you are not around?

I suppose I could drop one off with Tim O at the green house wink.gif down at Jessie View. Any interest Tim?

Holy Deadheads Batman! Be careful to anyone not familiar with Jessie, I saw plenty of deadheads on my mythical Smallmouth hunt. I'm sure there have been a couple of lower units that unfortunately found them this year already.

You can leave them with Tim O or leave them with Blacky he is the Maroon cabin second from the opposite end of the road you are on. The cabin with the White Lund. I may be up next weekend and then labor day weekend.

Sure, you can leave them here with us.
Had a big deadhead right out in front of the resort in about 15' of water. It was 18" below the surface and I hit while testing a rental motor. Good thing I had the tilt lever up so there was no damage.
Went back out with the pontoon to pull it in and we could not find it. I have pulled out about 5 already this year.
We have not had any body get swimmers itch yet, but I suppose it is that time of the year.

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to.

      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
