I took my new boat out for the first time on chisago lake on saturday. The lake was busier than I thought it would be. We went all over the place and couldn't buy a bite. But then we found this little sheltered bay and started nailing the BIG sunfish! At least 60 of the 70+ sunnies we caught were bigger than the back of my hand...some were topping out at 1/2 pound. We were using minnows for bait hoping to catch crappies, only a couple of them, but the big sunnies were a great consolation. Had a few bass and an encounter with a big dogfish too. Every fish was released. Was a good day to be out. Anyone else fish the chain this past weekend? How'd you do?

South Center seems different. Seems the fish have left the bays and are out on the main body. We destroyed sunfish on the north side in about 7 FOW. They were right on top of the weeds. Yellow Flu Flu with wax worms for the sunfish and dragging a small mimmic minnow real slow worked on the crappies.

We were on S.C. Sunday evening, in the little bay, straight across from the boat launch.

Couldn't buy a bite in shallow water (8-10') but when we got out in 13', each time, my wife picked up a walleye on a little jig head w/ crappie minnow. (3) about 6-8", and one 18" walleye.

We too were looking for the crappies.

We found them about 200 yards straight out from the boat launch, not near shore, in 8' of water.

We trolled up and down the shore a couple of times just to the east of the boat launch, but nothing was there at that time.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
