no class todays so i figured i would spend some time out on the ice.... bad idea... man was the wind whipping today.. a buddy and i went out to mcnallays for a change in scenerio and to see what was bitting out there. after struggling with the wind while putting up the portable for 15 minutes we attempted to drill some holes. It was apparent that one of us had to hold the shack while the other did the drilling to make sure the shack didnt blow away. So my buddy starts drilling and mother nature gets really mad we are ruining her ice i guess, because she lets a roaring wind go. The wind catches the shack with me holding on and drags me 50 yards. After the wind takes a break i drag the shack back into place and we both get inside to stay away from the whipping wind. This must have made mother nature even more mad because not only did we destroy her ice but now we are trying to steal here fish. So she lets another gust go and blows the shack with both me and my buddy inside, along with all our gear a good 25 yards away from our holes. (Pretty funny to watch your holes slide away from you and then all you see ice the ice flying by under your feet) We finally got the shack anchored down (by putting ice on the downwind side). The stubborn fish that littered my flasher screen just did not want to bite. So what was supposed to be a fun day, turned into a work day.. still beats a day of classes!

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
