I personally have not had a chance to get down recently, but I speak with parties every day that have been down to this part of the lake.

Your raps are the ticket right now, but be ready to do some color changing if your stand-by doesn't work. I'd be sure to have some sticks along and certainly entertain the live bait too, especially on the spinner rigs. Dragging the cranks though is preferable.

Straight across from Lake City and points downstream are also going great guns for the trollers. Basically everyone I have spoken with that have been down to Pepin fishing this week have do well, regardless of the presentation. The trollers though are apparently doing very well. Look for the breaklines down to 15 feet. The flats are doing well along the willows when the wind is blowing into them....gets a little rough though.

If the temps and weather cooperate the fishing should hold together pretty well now.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
