If you have a boat troll from the drop-off at the point to the hump in front of the swim beach. If no boat, large egg weight and sucker, do a 'HAPPY GILLMORE' out as far as you can.

The north and south ends of the lakes are shallow and get very weedy. If you are fishing in a boat you could manage fishing these areas(I've caught pike fishing bass in these areas) the rest of the lake gets deeper and there are actualy weedlines and you could soak a bobber and minnow from shore easily, though I would shy away from the docks with the other people fishing. I think the point is an okay spot to start with, but I would move around.

Hey Rincrat,

You remind me of me when I was your age. I used to fish Bush a lot. We had good luck on the West side if you can get past the weeds. I think its great you are that into fishing with all the other distractions there are in life for a teenager. Keep it up and good luck fishing! Dan

The point is almost as bad as the docks with other people fishing, these are not the types of spots I like to fish personally. I would just move around and cast out to the weedlines. I fished there a lot as a kid too(wasnt that long ago). Still do occasionally

      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. 
    • leech~~
      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.
