What a great Weekend!!

Hey all, just wanted to leave a quick mesage about this past weekend. My buddy and I hit the Big Pond this past Sat and Sun and caught about 40 eyes. No kidding here - the eyes averaged 23 inches with the biggest being 26 inches and about 6 lbs. We tried the Garrison rocks with some luck and some other areas, but the best area by far was Indian Point yesterday. At times there were 5 foot waves with the gail force Southeaster winds, but an 1/8th ounce green and chartreuse Northland jig tipped with a leech was the ticket. We were setup in about 16ft of water and casting into about 13 ft of water and just bouncing the jigs back. There were 2 other boats by us just nalining big horse walleyes as well on Indian Point.

A quick note : Sorry to the Dad and his 3 eight year old boys that I got p.oed at up by the Casino launch - the one where the ramp itself is in a little inlet type thing big enough for 3 boats, yet 25 were all there at once at the end of the day. I was the guy there on Sat night who was hung up in 2 inches and water and was the guy who also had to get out into the water and push off those same rocks. That was precisely the time I got p.oed at the guy with his kids in the Lund who was blocking off the narrow opening that everybody and their mother was trying to get through...

I had a good reason for being stuck on those 2 inches of water though - my old 92 Yamaha needs that little rubber star piace part so the water can intake thorugh there a little better. Without this piece my motor overheats in a hurry when idleing - I had to shut her off while the mass exodus of boats were coming in and the wind just charged me right into the 2 inch water area. All one passerby could say to me while I was struggling in the water to push my boat out was, "Hey, you can't be over there.." Um, ya think? Yes, I saw it all on that day, but I'm sure the laughs were on me that night. I just feel bad for letting out an F- bomb to the guy blocking the entrance as he had his 3 eight year olds in the boat. I was sorry that I came unglued there, but it was mucho frustrating at that launch.

Anyways, what a great fishery and I hope to be back soon!

I agree. It was my first opener on ML. We didn't catch the numbers that most people did, but caught quality fish,(25.5, 24.5, 23.5, 23.5, 21, 17.5, 17, 15) and lost a big one too. The boat traffic wasn't bad at all where we fished on the south side. My brother did great on the sand too. It should be a great summer. There was lots of boats, but people were considerate, it's a big lake and all the fish are not in the same area.

I had a fantastic four day weekend on Mille Lacs. Good fishing in terms of number and size. It was a lot of fun for me because I grew up with a cabin on Mille Lacs (family sold it when I was in college). My buddy bought a place on the SE side this spring so it was my first opener on Mille Lacs in at least 15 years. I have fished my share on Mille Lacs since but this is the first time in years I have had that 'home base' cabin feel again. It brought back the memories.

A highlight for me was having a 'double' with my nephew as we pulled in identical bookend 27's at the same time. They were our biggest fish of the weekend. One thing I thought was ironic was we had those good numbers and average size but we only caught one walleye all weekend below 14".

I was sorry to see the shape of the public landings. I hope that water doesn't go down any further.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      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.
