Hey there guys... New to the sight. Just wanted to say hi. I have read through the postings for years and just never signed in. Well, here i am...

I have a cabin on Grand Lake in the bay just behind the island, West lake Rd. just off the McGreger Rd. I currently have a fish house out there on the west side (group). I bought a under water camera this winter that has been a lot of fun. Seen some nice size eyes come cruzin' through. Ya, they never stopped.

I go on a few summer trips to Canada as well. Dogtooth Lake, Northern Light. Lots of big fish stories...

See ya... Smooth Operator

Thanks guys... Ya, it should be fun.

Fishing has been slow on grand the last couple of weeks. I moved the house in slightly deeper water last week. I haven't had a good chance to give a good go. I'm all about structure and where i am now there is nothing. We'll see.

Northlander, sounds good. I have a trip planned up to Dogtooth the first week in June. As you probably know that lake can get to you, a little frustrating confused.gif

Talk soon... Smooth

Smooth we usually went the 1st week in July and usually find enough fish to keep us motivated. I know what ya mean though. The eyes can be very deep in that lake or in 4" of water on a midlake reek/rockpile.

Frustrating was Northern Lights last year!! Man it was tuff fishing. 7 days and only 15 eyes and a bunch of Bass and Pike. No eyes were big either. Biggest was 21". I hope this summer isnt like that again. May have to find another lake. Besides that gravel road kils my boat every time. crazy.gif

Of course the locals up there will never let it get paved. They already blame us Americans for the poor fishing last year. confused.gif Drop me a e-mail and we can touch base over a map some time.

Northern Lights end of July Im an esko guy who was also there at red pine. Worst fishing ever never spent so much on Jumbo leeches just to feed them to Bass just couldnt get away from them. Just hope I isnt a trend of things to come.

      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.

      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?
