I was just wondering if the water temps have dropped enough yet to start the walleyes and saugers or is it just stripers and sheaphead? Also, now that Labor Day has come and gone, does the boat traffic cut down enough so a person can actually fish on the weekends? I favor the south end of the lake in the spring and fall.

Thank You!

The tourney is on Sept. 16-17 at Roschen park in Lake City. The take off times are 7:00 and 7:30 and weigh-ins are at 3:00 and 4:00 for the 2 flights.

It will be interesting to see how some of the top sticks from across the midwest deal with the tough bite. I'm thinking the wingdams will produce the best fish as I saw quite a few boats fishing the wingdams today.

I've been shoreline fishing with plastics and they don't get a lot of attention unless you make an adjustment to get a reaction strike from fish. Crankbaits are just a killer for the spots I have fished. I hit up a 45 minute to an hour of just walleye frenzy just this past morning. Mostly those sizes were barely in the 15". There are a lot of skinny long eyes (maybe males) that took the bait. The best was a 23" eye going nearly five lbs. I think I only caught like 3 saugers and 1 saugeye during that time period. It was FUN even in the rain.

I have been shore fishing points lately. It just seems like I have been fishing for crappies around a certain point. Then decided to check to see if the eyes were around by tying on a crankbait. It just so happens to me that I had a school of walleyes in the area. Usually there are just a couple of eyes and saugers in the mix, but this time there were mostly eyes. If you got the time, go out and try the old fishing hole again. The eyes might just be in there because they were there for me.

      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!
