What's the word on the walleyes up that way these days?

Was supposed to be heading to Lake St. Clair to film a TV show next week but cameraman had a conflict so that plan crapped out. Already had the time off arranged so decided to stay at the cabin for the week. Heading up for muskie opener but probably going to do the bass/walleye/muskie combo platter while I'm there. smile.gif Not looking for specific hot lakes - just sort of general sense of what the walleyes are up to. From talking to the neighbors on Crystal, seems like a lot of the lakes are a little behind where they should be this time of year.

Thanks for any info. If you see a Tracker Tundra with a walkthrough windshield bopping around the next 10 days or so flag me down and say hi - always cool meeting FM types smile.gif

Pretty good luck in the area using spinners/leeches in 14-19ft during the day. Crankbaits in shallows at night are

going also. Hopefully you can get some water time in between the rains.

walleyegod hit it on the nose. Spinners and leeches or minnows during the day and shallow running cranks in the skinny waters during the eve/night hours.

I will keep my eye out for the Tracker...I will be down on those area lakes next Monday-Thursday. I have a Alumacraft with FM stickers on the back...pulled by a Explorer with more FM stickers on the back. Stop and say hello. grin.gif

How's it going RK? Were you parked on the road in Cormorant Village across from the gas station on Wednesday. I was over at one of the real estate agencies, saw a nice big tundra with a Merc Verado on it, wondered who it might be. Fishing is a little behind, crappies are just starting to spawn on larger lake, walleyes can still be found shallower, and the bass are shallow as well. I've been doing well below some spillways here in the DL area, popped a 26" walter last night and a 24" a couple nights ago. If you want to hook up for a couple hours Saturday morning for Muskie opener, shoot me an email. I live on South Shore about 200 yards from the access. Have a wedding Saturday afternoon, so only a couple hours Sat. morning for me.

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
