Hey at least you found some fish! Did you get any of those crappies to bite Duckslayer? I've heard it's been a pretty slow year out on the chain with most of the fish being small.

I was on Horseshoe on Sunday afternoon, and the cats were not very active. It's been a tough bite for cats this year. The meth hole area has not seen the numbers of fish as in the past, even though there's been few people out there. Hanson, Dennis, etc, I think I saw your "caravan" moving across Horseshoe right before dark on Sunday...how was the late afternoon bite where you were at?

we did get a few of them to bite. The problem was we where not prpared for crappies. No crappie minnows of grubs. Next time we will be. The crappies we did catch where good size but we were also using bigger bait

Just wondering if anyone has been out in the last week. Last weekend we ended up fishing the tournement on Winnie. Great time. So if anyone has any info on if the cat bite has started or the walleyes, let me know. Hope to get out on the lakes a couple of times this weekend.

With these temps, its gonna make it tough to get to a lot of spots on the chain again. Man, a little current, sun, and now these temps, are a recipe for more bad ice and open water.

Crud.

That's why I think the bite has been slower htis winter for the cats. The community spots on the lakes have been getting hammereddue to folks hesitating to hit other spots due to unstable ice conditions. The river sections have been totally off limts for the most part this winter.

Went out there last Sunday we caught one small crappie right as we where leaving at 6:30 maybe we should have stayed a little later. We where marking fish all over during the daylight but they where all small perch once it got dark the fish where few and far between.

I used to but I don't know anyone who lives there now. I bet the river sections are totally off limits after todays warm weather and the rain we're getting tinight.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
