Had a small club tournament on odowd today(six boats). First place was an amazing six fish for over 26 lbs!! They had three fish over five lbs, it was really something to see. All in all the club weighed in 6 fish over 5 lbs with the biggest being 5.39. My partner and I took second with what I thought was a respectable 16.5 lbs, only ten lbs behind the winners. All of the bigger fish were caught on crankbaits out in 8-10 ft of water, or on the edge of the pads with a pop-r

oly, that's impressive If you don't mind telling what color cranks were they using. I only ask because I don't use them and just wondering on color and size.

All of my fish came on a bomber fat free shad. I caught about ten fish over fourteen inches on it. It was the only thing I caught fish on. My dad also was using fat free shads and he had the big fish of the day at 5.39. I believe he was using the chartruese and white in the deeper diving model it can get down 14 ft or so. My partner was using a blue and chrome risto rap but he didnt catch as many or as large of fish as me and my dad got on the fat free shads. My old man uses crankbaits alot and I know he uses the bombers fat free shads almost exclusively so I would definetly recommend them if you are looking to get some good deeper diving cranks. As far as color goes it didnt seem to matter but i generally use brighter colors because I usually only throw cranks in dirty water

That is exactly what we were using early summer. We have an older boat with rod holders and we cast about 100ft out and troll slowely around the lake. The best spots have been the dropoff by the rock pile and the smaller island in the middle of the lake. At times we would pull in 4-5lb pike every 15 mins. I plan to hit the lake wed night and maybe even friday. What spots have been producing and if anyone is going to be out there and you see an old runabout boat with a lime green strip stop on by. The ss ghetto blaster will produce!

I was using braided line, power pro to be exact. The areas where my partner and i caught fish there was scattered weeds but mostly pretty clean. The key seemed to be to find areas that were rocky out in 7-10 ft. What up bassin, I'm guessing that your the notorious BW

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
