you should be able to find walleyes in the bay yet. It is a shallow bay (3-5ft) There are numerous deeper spots. Deep in the bay is 7 to 9ft. Walleyes will be in these deeper areas. Along the east side of the bay is the deepest water and runs 9ft or so for basicly the length of the bay. Try the north end of this, you will be able to see cabbage weeds, the walleyes should be there. Troll, drift or cast a jig and sinner in the 7ft areas. Bobber fishng a leech will also get these fish if you have them located. Your fishing opertunities are numerous but this should get you started.

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.
