I'm seriously hoping to be on Bloody Saturday or Sunday or both, kinda depends on weather and if I get my boat fixed up.

Shetek on opener would be a good call. The north end, Teepeootah point is a good place to hit.

Sure it's worth the trip. I'm not going to sit here and tell you that you will catch a pail full of 15" crappies, but there are some nice slabbys in both Bloody and Shetek.

I'm bringing my boat into work tomorrow. After work I'll have it in the shop getting it ready. Hopefully I'll be on one of the lakes Saturday or Sunday. If you see a maroon Chev PU, with a Pabst sticker on the rear windshield, it's me.

We spent the better part of yesterday afternoon on Shetek. We tooled the boat (the new boat grin.gif) around the dykes, the inlet,(Where I hit a rock mad.gif) and in a lot of back bays and points. We were looking for crappies. We got hit with the big skunk-er-oo. I chatted with a few people who were doing some shore fishing and they had pretty much the same luck we did.

Although no fish, it was a GREAT day to be out on the lake, especially in the new to me boat!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      My beach be west for sure.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
