Well I went out to hit the Big Lake but could only stay out on the SS for about 45 minutes. Had to stay close to the break wall for a wind breaker. 17' boat wasnt enough tonight.

Went back into the River and started drift jigging. 1/2 hour and nothing. I decided to take out the boards and troll some sticks. Best move of the night. Within 10 minutes I had 2 boards going off at the same time. 1st eye was a fat 25"er and the second a slob of a 31"er! 1st fish knocked my board off so I went back to get it and trolled the line again. Got to where I hit the 1st two and wouldnt ya know it both boards went off again. Managed to get the 1st one in the net and it was a nice 23"er. With clicker still going off on second board I got that one in but had to hand it in cuzz the net was full of the 3rd eye and trebles. Another nice 23"er!

Went back threw again and nothing in that direction. Turned around the same way that produced the previous 4 and when I got to my marked spot on the GPS hit another nice 24.5"er!

A few more passes and 1 more eye in the 23" range again. Trolled my way to the landing and hit a 16"er right as I was going to pull lines.

Man what a blast! I havent had a night like that in a LONG time. Only managed 2 pics of the fish due to disposable being full. I guess it always happens when your alone and no camera. confused.gif

Cheffrey now ya know why my cell call to you was so intense. grin.gif

Im back at it early in the AM and hopefully I can do half as well.

Hit the same spots this A.M and only managed 2 fish. Both were nice in the 22" range. Wind just wasnt in my favor I guess. Well Ill hit the big lake this afternoon and see what we see.

Nice fish Steve... With all the time you put into fishing that river, you deserve a few days/nights like that...

We gotta get together to fish the south shore!!

One of the charter boat guys picked up another big walleye... picked it up while fishing one the outer most islands here... 9lbs 28".... he said he didnt believe it when his clients told him they had a walleye in the net in the spot they were fishing...

Ya I guess all the hours paid off. I didnt get picks of the 31"er because I didnt realize my disposable camera only had 2 pics left and wouldnt ya know I took pics of the 25"er 1st. frown.gif

I did get pics of the 25" and a nice 23"er later. Ill try to get ST to post them for me. Im dumb when it comes to that. If anyone else knows how to do it e-mail directions to me please. [email protected]

I went to the same spot this morning and got 2 22"ers and that was it. Tried again this PM and nothing at all.

Yesterday winds were pushing into this spot and it was overcast. Today bright and wrong winds. Oh well thats fishin.


Jim we should do the SS soon. Maybe next Tues or Wed?

      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.  
    • Muskies
      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. 😂
