I fished Baker's Bay on Monday in 25 ft of water. Caught limit of nice sunnies plus 6 crappies. All came in 12 ft down and all on waxworms. they wouldn't hit minnows. Fished from 7am till about 3 pm. Lot of lookers.

Anyone have an ice report for Washington? Headed there for the clean-up Sat., but am planning to go early and do some pre-dawn fishing; looking at the very south end of the east side. Want to verify if I can take the 1/2ton truck out or not.

Basscatcher...I was out on monday in the morning before I had to head back up here to the cities for school, there was I would say about 15-16in. on average. I did see one guy walking, a few wheelers/sleds, but the majority of people were driving all over and its stayed fairly cold so I would bet you will be alright. I will be out there fishing tomorrow as I do not have school or have to work all weekend, cant wait!

Thanks for the info. That's about what I saw on Madison yesterday, maybe an inch or two less (which Washington might have now). Every lake is a little different, and I didn't want to make any assumptions about the ice on Washington.

Was out in bakers bay tonight, Very scarce. Only a few houses left. I fished from 5:30 to 9:00p.m. I was in 13 ft of water, had lots of lookers from 6 ft to 12 ft. They would come and go through out the night. I managed to catch 4 crappies. It was a struggle, I thought I would be done in a hour or so the way the vex was lighting up the first hour. I had a great time, I will be trying it tommorrow again.

I was out in Bakers today, the sunnies were awesome! Got a nice limit with a bonus crappie in an hour and half. Small ratso and a spike was the ticket

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB
