Well I was out for 12 hours on Saturday with three other guys and we got shutout!! That has never happened to any of us on that lake until this trip! We tried everything............ except the night bite! I would say good luck and spend some evenings on the water. I won't say which resort I spoke with before I came up but they said "the fishing has been good" I got up there and used there launch and when we got back talked to the resort owner and he said "it's been pretty slow for about a month" It was the same guy I had spoken with on the phone a few days earlier... I was dissapointed to say the least. I spoke with other fisherman and looked around and didn't see one person catch a walleye! There was no wind and it was sunny and like 88 on Saturday so the conditions were not great, but we still usually catch something. I don't mean to sound negative but it was not a great experience.... oh yeah, the Horse flies are biting.

Ditto to Buzzsaw. Was on the water for most of Sat. and all of Sunday. Managed only 4 walleyes total and of those 2 where keepers.

Threw everything at them and there was no pattern to be found. Only thing I heard was very early in the morning from

6-8am was OK.

Ok i have some encouraging news too share. I just got back from a week at Winnie. The fishing was pretty darn good. Got up a week ago and that hot calm saturday you guys got skunked on? All i can say is get the shad raps on and look for the schools of baitfish. That saturday evening in 3 hours we caught 11 eyes and 11 northerns. The count for the week between 2 boats was in the neighborhood of 125 walleyes. And this wasnt while fishing 14 hours a day. The best part of the week it was hot and dead calm so most days found us out from about 7 am too 11 am and again from 6 pm too 9 pm. But yesterday afternoon in the last outing of the week the wind had piped up a bit and we got them late in the afternoon before 6 pm. Lots of 13-14" fish but a ton of 16-16 1/2" fish. When the wind got going the fish really got going also, and it got the big ones going. My boat had about 13 eyes over 20" with a 23" yesterday being the biggest. Odd enough the morning after that cold front came through was our best outing for the bigger fish. But the front had the wind blowing some big caps out there also, i guess thats why they were going. As far as colors, just "match the hatch" as they say. Nothing too special reguarding structure, its all about finding the schools of baitfish and they arent hard too see on the graph.

      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. 😂
