We returned on July 22nd from a week on 3rd. We didn't fish 4th at all, but fished 3rd the most and a little on 2nd. We had very good luck with bass, crappie, and northern, with a few walleye.

Most of the bass were on plastic worms and spinnerbaits and some topwater baits. The last morning, my cousin boated 2 that pushed 5 lbs each. We fished mostly the islands and weedbeds on 3rd, then down the end of 2nd as it enters the river to go to 1st.

Crappie and bluegills we found on the southeast shore near the reeds and around the small island in about 8 to 12 feet of water with minnows and small jigs. We fished a lot for these since the entire family was on vacation.

We caught more northerns than usual - trolling cranks or minnows or leaches around the islands and the points on the south end. Largest was around 31 inches or so. One HOT afternoon may father and I boated 3 in about an hour, all between 24 and 28 inches, with several others that didn't make it to the boat. He went back out a little later and caught a couple more. We started walleye fishing, but the northerns kept biting the line, so we switched tactics a little and had a good afternoon. Walleye action was slow. Temps were in the upper 90s to start the weekend, then cooled some the rest of the week. We didn't target walleyes much as a result.

Coming back in the end of September for 3 or 4 days.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
