I fished French Lake yesterday evening in the windy mist. Marked a few crappies on the graph in 8 to 12 feet of water. Never pulled one up. I pretty much confined myself to the south shore, past the point by the launch over to the rock piles in 4 to 15 feet. (my favorite ski spot in the summer)

The dock is not out yet, so if you have a larger boat, prepare to get your feet wet.

I will be fishing Mazaska on Sunday afternoon hoping this front will be through by then.

Fished Kelly/Dudley Lake today. No fish, but caught a 16ft boat. Some guys launched their boat, made it about 75 feet from the launch, and did not put the plug in. 2 swam to shore, (the water temp was 44)I pulled the other from his boat, he was standing on the bow, which was the only part left out of the water. It was about 8 feet deep at that point.

The sheriff came abored my boat and we pulled the sunk boat as close as we could to shore so a truck with a rope could pull it ashore from there.

Was the absolute strangest day on the water I have ever had.

I'll be curious to read the police incident report in the Farbo newspaper.

Maybe next time out,I'll have better luck. smile.gif

I fished Clear and found a limit of crappies in 10'. wink.gifLots of bait fish around. Didn't get any sunfish. On the water about 10 and off by noon before the mist. Better fishing around here than the last few trips to the river.

Wow burnt way to do your civic duty!! I'll bet the guys you pulled out of the water appreciate what you did for them today! Especially going back and dragging the boat in. That was definately above and beyond the call of duty. Not too many guys can say they caught a 16 footer! grin.gif

I could not imagine swimming in 44 degree water crazy.gif I'm glad they were only in shallower water & not the deep holes those lakes have. They were very lucky to have you there.

Hats off to you! Glad they were ok.

Yes, if they would have made it out to the 60 foot hole...it'd be a whole different story, and most likely not a happy ending.

Im pretty sure these guys will be taking a boat saftey course in the near future. They also did not have any PFD's onboard. One of my neighboors from across the lake took a few pictures. As soon as I get them, I will post.

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
