I know this is on the hunting forum, but just curious if anyone else is finding them in this area. I went out yesterday and knabbed about 30 or 40 in one spot, seems like they are just getting going around here, they did taste good though with the fresh walleye that I brought back from Iowa, just wanting to see if anyone else is finding any yet, mixture of grey and yellow, which i thought was strange, normally the greys come first but this year it seemed as if it were 50/50

Oh they were good, can't quite say that there as good as a true mn eye, but definately good, especially with the morels, I will say though that getting out the week before has taken a little of the enthusiasm out for the upcoming weekend, even though I only caught a couple, I'm still kicking myself for not hitting that windy shoreline harder and pitching the jigs to them, instead of drifting in the morning, I know they were in there should have spent a little more time on them, oh well that's reserved for next year,

As far as the Morels go, I wouldn't wait to long, sometimes the greys only get an inch or two, the yellows will get bigger, but if i see a grey i usually grab it that day, ive seen greys and yellows that were all dried out or the bugs got to them before i did, so even though it's nice to have them get a little bigger, it doesnt take much for them to go bad either. This rain should really help out.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
