today i was out serching for perch. i came across a small school of big red lines in 15 fow. they would not bite or even look at a shrimpo so i threw down a small spoon and bam. 16 inch smallie. i caught 11 of these guies between 14 and 18 inches before i lost the school. that could have been the most fun ive had on the ice in my life.

has anybody seen this before.

Never saw that on local south-central MN lakes. There are some smallies in the lakes on the Cannon river system, but that's about it.

What lake were you on mj? I didn't even know we had lakes with smallies in them around here?

My guess is he is on the lake right outside his back door! Got into them out in SD fishing for sunnies and your right matt, it's a hoot.

I am coming down tomorrow night. Weather looks like we should be out of school by noon, so hopefully be there by 4. Going to start on the hidden islands, after that??? I heard Madison is putting out some crappies and walleyes.

If its the watertower and highlines, yes. Last year I only got to fish them for two nights, we ended up with 14. Not a flake of snow here, so I won't be to the cabin until 5 or 6. I'm on my own and have room and "refreshments" so stop out or call. 320 522 1601

      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?
