Anyone having any luck? I am thinking about hitting the French or Lester this Saturday.

Thanks

3 of us (Goggs, Lucky, and myself) were out this afternoon down at the French with no luck. Lots of people down there but no fish. Saw one sucker caught. Great day to be out anyways.

Surprisingly we didn't catch the sucker this time, a guy next to us got it. Made me feel good to see others can catch those things too. A guy said that he had been doing decent the week before though.

We took the canoe out last night, but since we were a little short on time we only went up to the lester. Saw a few surface but no hits. I'm thinkin it might be a little better morning bite, but the weather's gotta be pretty cooperative to get the canoe out there.

Porter, doesn't sound like i am going to be able to make it this weekend. Heading up north with the gal pal and probably going to do some fishing on Rainy. Let me know how you guys do this weekend. We should get together and do some shore standing/fishing some time soon. We can watch Ben catch suckers.

nblasin we are headed to Rainy Lake this weekend as well. Where do you plan on fishing? We will be up Friday afternoon or late morning. Maybe get out a few hours but need some info on where to try. I hear Rainy City is slow but American Narrows may be good. Drop me a e-mail if you have a second. Thanks.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
