I was out yesterday and the size hasn't changed too much, did manage 8 fish over 10 inches. There were still a lot of small ones. Also picked up a walleye as a kicker. Just too windy to fish effectivly. Headed out again tomorrow.

Sweet, Ya i know it is really fun to catch those small ones one after another, last year i went up twice and me and a buddy caught them non stop. So i might have to make room for a trip later in the season. I just cant wait till the day all those little peuks grow up! laugh.gif

One final for me left too, Tuesday afternoon. I was fishing out of Isle bay in about 20 feet of water. Minnows under a bobber for the jumbos, all the little ones were caught jigging. Nothing really special. Just try all different depths till you find one that works and move if you are not catching them.

Cubbies,

When are you going to have time off over break or have a little bit to get out and fish. You sound like the kind of guy I might like to fish with. You may be jsut as crazy about ice fishing as I am. I really enjoy fishing Bald Eagle and am always looking for others to fish it with. So if you are interested in getting out and chasing some fish some night I would be all for it. I might even share some of my hot spots on other lakes in the area wink.gif. Well if you want to go send me an e-mail, navr0012 at d dot umn dot edu. Once again good luck tomorrow if you get out. Good luck on your final.

keep fishin'

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
