Headed out to Washington today around 1 and fished until 5. We ended up getting enough for a nice meal for a friend and I. The size ran a little smaller than what we were used to, but we did manage a 8"ers, and a couple nice crappie and a perch. I guess not to bad for the first time out since Febuary. It was a strange bite. Some of the fish woud rocket off the bottom after your jig and bite before you could even get it down and others would look at it for a few minutes before biting.

Oh I have been addicted all winter. I am from Wisconsin and go to school at MSU. I had no clue where any lakes were or where to fish. I just started fishing Washington in January and have had exelent luck (thanks to you guys). We were fishing by the narrows in about 11' of water. Bakers is too long of a walk for this guy. We were back there earlier in the season looking for that 12' water and the rock pile but we could never find it. I think the maps I am looking at are off. Thanks all for you awesome reports over this winter and I look forward to posting more. I will be out Saturday.

My husband and I were there last Sunday. Walked out to Bakers Bay from the access at Westwood.We tried all different depths. Caught one small sunny in 12 foot, and another small sunny in about 20 ft. It was showing fish on the vex but couldnt get them to bite. It seemed that most of the people out there were moving around alot. Been doing most of our fishing on Madison, but cant believe how dirty the water is looking. Put the Aquaview down and couldnt hardly see anything. And the same happened there, it showed lots of fish but couldnt get many of them to bite.

Went out saturday morning at 8 and fished until 6 at night. Ended up catching and releasing well over 200 hundred fish. By the time my buddy came out at noon I just wanted to sit there and watch him catch all the fish. Needless to say he hammered them. Early in the morning the fish wouldn't touch an orange tear drop so I put on a glow jig and that was the ticket until about 2 or 3 when they stopped hitting it. We fished 9-12 feet of water and moving was key. Catch a few fish out of one hole and move down to another hole. By the end of the day we had a pretty beaten path in a circle. We caught bluegills and crappies anywhere from 2 feet under the ice to right on the bottom. We must have been doing something right because by the end of the day everyone from bakers bay were moving closer to us. Hope to get out this week again for some fast action. Tight lines.

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️
