I haven't been on French for the last couple of years 'cause it's so busy with the pressure on muskies, I guess some people choose to come south than north, but I don't think you have to worry about green & slimey until about July when things heat up. That may be pushed ahead with this cooler weather, though. L2f

thanks,you know,i can't figure out why nobody really talks about that lake on this forum. everytime we go there,it seems that we always get a few musky over 36" and tons of sunnies.also bass and a few eyes. why is that? are there other lakes in the area that blow it away? i see alot of talk about tetonka,madison etc. are these lakes alot better? or just better for eyes? thanks.

You must be fishing it right when you go if you can get a few muskies over 36" when you go. I've been fishing it many times for many years & I've gotten some quality fish, but not with any regularity except for sunfish. I've gotten some muskies but only in the fall & had to put in some time to do it, got a few walleyes but no quality fish limits. Bass are the same, few here & there but can't say I've ever done really well. I usually go to French a few times a year but there are alot of good lakes around including the ones you mentioned.I try to hit alot of lakes & not really locking into 1 or 2 What ever you're doing, keep it up!!

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
