I've heard there is about twenty something teams that fish the entire circuit. On top of that, I'm not sure. Heard that they had about 75 teams up at whitefish a couple weeks ago.

Hopefully they get a bunch in this one.

Guess We'll find out tongue.gif

Chub, why get your money? All you may need is one fish and you could be in the top 10 places to get your entry back.

I'll sell you a fish wink.gif $1.25 per OZ. LOL

good luck guys i was on green most of friday. Only 1 smallie 14", 2 walleyes, No pike, oh ya 1 rock bass.

I didn't say I wanted my money back. I think I'm good for one fish....LOL grin.gif Wow what a tough bite. What kinda boat were you in? I'm sure we may have crossed paths.

Way I got it figured, if nothing else, I'm gonna catch sunfish and rock bass tongue.gif

Chub what boat where you in? Or what place did you end up? I was out fishing in that tourney too. It was a tough bite, I didnt catch my first fish until 11AM and then it was a 13" one too. Later I got a fish to bring in but thats all. I missed a few fish also but all-in-all it was tough.

Tough is an understatement. I know there are those that say walleye fishing has never been better out there, but to those people, I say you must have never caught much to begin with.

We caught two fish.(walleyes) Came in 11th.

The lake is full of an unbelievable amount of forage right now, but there seems to be a lack of walleyes.

If it woulda been a sunfish tourny I would have done better tongue.gif The lake is full of sunfish.

You came by me two weeks ago when I was up on top of the haystack jigging in the weeds putting on a rock bass clinic...lol.

Ok, I know which boat you were in.

Lol, we need a rock bass tournament! I caught so many of those stupid things it gets sickening! I even catch them on a #7 Shad Rap trolling! I call those things "red lake walleyes" b/c they're all over. That and your right, there is a lot of sunfish too.

For the tourney we weighed one 19" fish and caught one other that was 13". Also missed about 4 other fish so it was kind of disappointing.

coulda been worse, I know a few of the guys that came from out of town paid for motels and all that fun stuff, fished for days........and never caught zip crazy.gif

I'm sure most of the out of towners have crossed Green off their walleye vacation hotspots...LOL

I tried shad rappin' for about a hundred feet and caught sunfish and largemouth bass tongue.gif

It was a miserable bite.

I'm gonna try to catch some of those big sunnies though. Some guys with cameras also said they saw a fair amount of crappies too.

I keep telling myself that I am going to go out on green with my ultra light and go after some huge panfish. But its either the challenge of the walleyes or the fight of the smallies that gets me. tongue.gif

I also thought I seen a few crappies out there. But then again, are they crappies or rock bass? They look close to the same on the camera but then again Im going to have to get my ultra light out one day and just find out! grin.gif

LOL, I think that tourney scared away some people. It was still fun for me since it was only my second tourney. Im still waiting for that panfish tourney though! Im going to troll #7 Shad raps to get them too! HAHA

      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.🙏
