We come up there every year and have never found a fun place to go for a beer or two with the exception of Zorbaz at the west end of OT. Great pizza too and the local honeys were looking nice, but they get $3.50 for a freakin' bottle of beer at that place! Where is this place the Sportsman you guys talk about? We stay on Clitherall.

Wow, we stay at Oak Park, right across the highway from Clitherall (town). Haven't actually been through the town itself in several years, that probably explains why I didn't know it was there.

Clitherall has a post office and two bars. One bar is the Sportsmans and the other is Bonnie & Clydes. They are right across the street from each other. The Sportsmans is an awesome place. The karaoke is great on Friday nights, and the gals come from Fergus Falls and all over the place. Saturdays are really good also, and I guess during the summer it stays pretty busy most of the time. Tim and Carolyn (owners) are super people. Stop on in! Don't pay Chuck N. 10 bucks to sing, though. Chuck, won't be up there until Saturday the 2nd, so we'll have to do karaoke on the 8th.

Oh ya, dat Sportsman's is a heckuva great place for sure, den. Me and da vife Helga like going der, we do. Great folks and atmosphere. Too bad dey quit taking and selling dat lutefiske pizza, ya know. I don't know vat dis worlt is comink too. Maybe dey did not like it ven my lutefiske breath melted da microphone last time I took and sank karoke. Bevare of ChuckN wit a microphone, he vill take and sink you Vayne Newton songs at yer table until you pay him to go avay.

Ve liff closer to Underwoot, and if you are taking and passing dat vay, dey have goot trinks and peers for a reasonable price at da Legion Clup. Goot food, too, at reasonable prices. ChuckN is an hearty endorser of da Peterwhich sandvich, he is. Der are goot for sure. Sorry, dey took and quit da lutefisk pizza der, too. Some Fridays and/or Saturdays dey have live music. Just look out for my cousin Fiske Sverdrup in der, he'll take and talk yer ear off, he vill.

I hope youse guyse take and have a goot time vereffer you take and go. Just look out for us olt Norvegians. Sometimes ve moof kinda slow crossink da street ven ve have been in dem pars.

Gud Dag,

Hjalmer

God save us should Lars Pihuulak and Hjalmer Tordenskjold hit one of the local establishments together.

I am 75% Norwegian and nothing is better that a warm lefse with butter and sugar, but I do NOT do lutefisk. Fish flavored jello IMHO.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
