Yes I had some good luck last Saturday with a silver hammered spinner, crawler harness, 1/4 oz slip sinker in St Albans Bay and off Seguchie point. Lots of 20-22 inch fish. Seemed like they wanted this more than the lindy/leech setup.

I was up on Saturday and we caught 55 walleyes on spinners tipped with crawlers behind bouncers. We didn't have any hogs but we did have six slots. The fishing is incredible.

I agree with Ron, just an incredible bite. I have never seen anything like it. Spinners, lindy, leech, or crawlers they are all equal with non-stop action. Numbers boated are exremely high for everyone I talked to this week-end. Simply amazing.

Yep... the bite is incredible. Finally caught a nice perch, so we know theres at least one in there. Also caught a tagged fish, and the tag popped out while she was thrashing in the net. Thought about sending it to the DNR with a message "20 inches... tasted **** good."

The bite is truly incredible.

I fished the North End in the morning using strictly leeches and caught some very nice walleyes. Very healthy looking.

We noticed a bit of a hatch going on and in the afternoon I switched to crawlers. We fished closer to Big Point on the east side. We had 5 other people fishing with us and they all used leeches. We caught 22 fish and 2 carp from 2:30 to 5:30). Of those I caught 8 walleyes and 1 carp all using crawlers with spinner.

My Dad switched to crawlers and caught 3 eyes using crawlers. along with missing 5 (his hook-set isn't what it should be). 11 eyes were boated out of 21 total using crawlers. It was 4 1/2 guys using leeches and 1 1/2 using crawlers (Dad 1/2 time using each).

This was right after a small hatch earlier that day. I would guess that crawlers may be a bit more effective if you have a mayfly hatch going on.

      They haven’t even gotten to eclipse plumage yet.  I haven’t seen enough birds around here to compare but they seem pretty young!   Great pic though!

      K-dub, I have been seeing a lot more bluegills of that size in Big Bay this year then ever before! Ran into a school of them last week and boated 17 gills that size one afternoon! Cliff

      If you can find a Gen 2 9" touch get it. I love mine.

      Shimano Sedonas are work horses for the buck too.

      Charge your battery after every use. Your not getting enough charging when not running big motor enough. Other option is to move up a size in battery if room. I have ran Interstates for years with no issues.

      Today while running a spinner in Big Bay Walleye haunts. Released; would love to find more of these!

      Hi - this may not be the exact best spot for this, but

      1). I flyfish, elk and deer hunt out of my simple, clean off grid cabin 11 m S of Ennis.
      Excellent elk, muley, whitetail, and pronghorn opportunities, E slope of Gravelly range. 2 m N of current Wigwam fire - no problem.I have more time than hunting partners and need solid, easy going buddies to hunt with, and or will time share swap with others for access to great hunting.

      2) I have 230+ acres of outstanding pheasant, whitetail, waterfowl, and some turkey just E of Granite Falls MN. If you are local and have bear, deer, turkey, etc., opportunities, especially closer to the Metro, Let's Talk. This land is also for sale, I'm tightening up my footprint and want to build on my Bozeman lot on the Gallatin.

      I am very interested in:
      - whitetail tree stand, including doe management opportunities (especially local for me in zone 610 MN) - gotta fill the freezer!
      - spot and stalk anything anywhere
      - turkey
      - winter southern or warm weather opportunities, including fly fishing..pigs?

      I'll give the noise supressor a try Bob.  Both units were purchased at the same time.    yoppdk- I checked my unit and I don't see any such setting on the 998.  There is a low battery alarm setting, but that is already turned to off.
