May 22 65 sun breezy n.e. We needed water and we got it in spades . After two days of rain up to four inches the lake level is good . Seems to be one foot higher as a result. The water is dirty but the fish are still on the spawning areas and biting. The weather outlook is nice and warm for the weekend. (We'll see)
May 18 cool light rain 65 Fishing is red hot This morning ther was a group of 7 that took a whole hour and twenty minutes to catch their limit. Lots of 16-19" walleyes coming of the spawning areas. Jigs and minnows or fz.shiners working the best. 30 people all catching lots of fish and having fun. 29.5"walleye the biggest at noontoday.
May 12 cool and less wind Jean and I went fishing this evening and she caught a 27" walleye. The fish are running big as females are moving into spawn. It's like first of April on the river. We saw lots of big walleyes caught and you had to work for eating size fish. But if you like catching huge walleye this is the time to come.
May 7 3:00 pm Hot temps. near 80 Jean and I went out for a ride in the boat to check the ice . Seems weird to check ice this time of year. We found we could get out to 20' and the water was pretty clear. From Morris point to Pine was open and it looks like everywhere other than in front of the island is good to go. Fishing this spring should last until at least July in shallow. But that's if we don't go right into summer.
May 1 cold windy 30's Well we will have lots of ice on the lake for the opener . Unless we get some real warm - hot weather soon. The bay opened shore to shore yesterday. And it's low just like last year in March. There is a lot of run off heading our way so hopefully the lake comes up.
April 4 30's sun and wind We still have a foot of snow on the lake and it doesn't look like its going anywhere. We will likely have some ice on the opener or it will have just gotten of anyway the fishing should be awesome.
Mar.17 - 25 sun The 2nd coldest day of the winter and it's March. One year ago was the last time I went icefishing last year. It was 75 above. The best fishing was 25 miles out by Garden Island.
Mar.14 35 sun The first thaw since Jan. 6 th . And winter is hanging on with the -10's and highs in the teens. Fishing is still going good way up north. Northern fishing has been slow but some nice fish have been caught. Snow is still thick on the lake so snow mobiles or tracks are the only way to get of roads.
Mar. 2 -4 to 30 sun The fishing has picked up on the reef with all limiting the last two days. Still getting mostly saugers. We have a few openings yet to go there this weekend. As far as the south end the fishing continues to be slow. I heard that the shiners were showing up at flag and oak so they are moving back to the main lake. call for reef fishing.
Feb. 24 sun calm 30 Finally it feels like winter is retreating. Reef fishing continues to be good. Yesterday I had a young boy of 7 years catch 3 slot walleyes and a 28" northern pike. Sure made dad proud. The group of 6 kept 42 fish. (less 4 tullees and the pike) Guys on there own with snowmobile have been
getting some really nice walleyes as well as some huge ones 30"+ in less than 18'. It is a short window of about an hour.
Feb. 18 Blizzard 6" snow 30+nw winds Reef fishing was pretty good for some. And down here was a little slower. Still more walleyes were caught on the south end than up north.
Feb. 15 cold light snow Fishing has improved in the shallower waters. With 14'-18' in the morning and evening. As well as 24'-28' most of the day. I went yesterday with Monte and we caught 6 keepers in two and a half hours. Not great but not bad.
Feb. 11 breezy 20 Yesterday we had 6" of snow and 40+ mph winds. Fishing has been spotty on the reefs with some houses doing ok with 18 fish and others with 8 . Down here yesterday it was 10- 14 per house with some nice walleyes . We are fishing between 20+ and 27'. And will probably go shallower.
Feb. 7 mild light snow Fishing has improved at least back to what it's been most of the winter. WE are fishing our first people up north. Reports are mixed there to.
Feb. 4 still cold They keep saying there is a warm up coming . If they named Alberta clippers we would be at z. This was the worst weekend for fishing anywhere on the lake. Everyone is scrambling to find something better. And we are heading with a few houses to the reefs .(even with reports not so good)
Jan. 31 cold sun and windy -40 wc The cycle just keeps going from warm to cold. The last few days we are seeing more walleyes. But the numbers are still a round 8-12 fish kept per house. As well as some nice slot fish.
Jan. 27 sun / warm The fishing yesterday was good for some and so so for others . This year you have to work hard to catch the fish. The morning and evening seem to be the best lately . The best house yesterday kept 20 with a couple slot fish. The rest were 8-12 per house. There were several other slot walleyes caught.
Jan.24 -38 cold and cloudy Fishing is still the same with some slots and around 10 keepers per house. Not the best fishing but far from bad.
Jan.19 sun / cold Fishing was pretty good yesterday with the cold and wind. Quite a few slot fish from 22"-26". The houses ran 11to 12 fish kept on average.
Jan.18 snow 18 Fishing was just o.k. with houses keeping 10 fish on average. Also some of the biggest tulibes I have seen. The reports are about the same around the lake some days your the top and other your not. We need a little more snow and we'll start heading north.
Jan.17 cold then warm Just like every week so far. And the fishing seems to follow the weather with up and down. Yesterday as the cold front brought us some -20's fishing was real good in the morning. There were lots of nice walleyes . The bigs were 27.5, 26,26,25.25 and24 as well as a few that were just over 19.5.
Jan.14 cold sun Finally dug out of the snow and getting house moved . The fishing today was better with several walleyes in the 22"-27" as well as some nice keepers. Still getting lots of tullees and small fish. Only house that fished all day had 17 w/s and 15 tullees.
Jan. 12 am BLIZZARD Slow going but people are getting out. Fishing was as good as it's been lately with a few walleyes and lots of saugers. Still running small.
Jan.9 cloudy/ warm Fishing is still about the same some doing all right and other not. The majority of the fish are still saugers. Some big walleyes are being caught as well.
Jan.7 cloudy / warm The fishing was better today with some nice walleyes as well as the saugers. The fishing over all has been lots of small fish as we have had a couple strong year classes in a row. That means the future looks good. As for now you just have to deal with the little devils.
Jan. 5 sun / cooler Another cold start with -2 rising to 16 As the weather goes so does the fishing . It seems that we go up and down . They are still catching enough fish to have a good fish fry and take some home. Best house had 17 and the rest were between 8-15 per house. Still getting lots of smalls.
Jan. 4 sun / nice And as it seems when the weather is nice the fishing was slow. Lot's of tulebes and a few big walleyes . But all in all a slow day.
Jan. 3 breezy/ warming The fishing was good all day. And with that the group I had out caught there limit . Also a nice 28.75" walleye they released. [pic. on facebook] Most of the fish are still saugers yet.
Jan. 2 nice /light snow Fishing was good in the morning and slowed in the afternoon. We had some real nice walleyes kept as well as a few 25+"slots released. All in all it was a good day with everyone having a fish fry last night.
Jan.1 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Cold start then warming. The weather and fishing were about the same. As the day warmed so did the fish. With a few slot walleyes and some nice saugers. And lots of small fish.
Dec.30 snow / 17 Fishing was still about the same . With catches ranging from 9-16 a house. There were a few slot walleyes caught with 25" at the top. Saugers are still dominating the fish kept.
Dec. 29 light snow / colder Fishing was slower for most . The best was 21 fish for 5 people in a house. The rest averaged 8 per house. We had a couple slot walleyes and big perch.
Dec. 28 cloudy / mild We had about the same as yesterday with more slot walleyes. Most of them were 24"-25" walleyes. One was a 30" and was released. The fish kept were still around 15 per house. It isn't great but not bad. Half ton trucks are driving out as the thinnest we found is 13".
Dec. 27 cloudy/ warmer 17 We had a couple of close to keeping , with two 27" walleyes . But fore the most part it was a busy day for the anglers. Lots of small fish kept them going all day. The average seemed to be 14 keepers per house. One group consisting of dad, mom,daughter,and granddaughter caught 8 walleyes at 18" and 10 nice saugers. Also the girls released a 24" and a 27" walleyes.
Dec. 26 sun / cold Well here we go again. We fished a family of 4 [the two boys were young ] and they
kept 28 fish most were 12+ " saugers , along with some 14-16 " saugers and a couple nice walleyes.
Dec.23 sun/cold -10 am. The fishing was good for Brian and son Allex who caught 70 fish and kept 15 fish yesterday. They could have kept one more but were holding out for another 18' walleye . Today it was Steve and his son Casey and friends from I. Falls. They ended up with some real nice walleyes and saugers. Some of them kept their limit but all had at least 4 real nice fish. MERRY CHRISTMAS from all of us at Randall's.
Dec. 20 sunny/ cool The fishing the last few days hasn't really changed. Still mostly saugers in 23'-26' . Walleyes seem to be in the shallows still so I would guess that the shiners we have are in there to.
Dec.17 cloudy / mild Fish ran a little bigger today but the bite was slower. Sunday some did real good and others said it was slow. Everyone is still catching lots of saugers.
Dec. 15 cloudy /warm 35 Fishing was good for the most . The bite was good in the morning and up till 4:oo pm. The evening was dead go figure. Walleyes are coming to the shallows and the saugers are in 23'. Fish kept is still in the 20 per house range . With alot more than that released. [NO RAIN OR SNOW HERE]
Dec. 14 sun / nice Fishing was great in the morning in the fog but slowed until the last hour. Most everyone had a nice bucket of fish. The one on there own that went deeper said it was slow. Saugers are still dominating the catches.[just like the start of last year] Fish in the shallows are mostly walleyes and are caught early and late in the day.
Dec. 13 cloudy / mild Fishing continued the realy good one day slower the next. Today was the slower but they still caught some real nice walleyes. The group fished 1/2 a day and brought in 19 nice fish tonight.
Dec. 12 light snow / warmer The low was-13 last night. But warmed over night. Everyone limited with real nice saugers leading the way. The walleyes were 18"for the most part. There were even a few slot fish released.
Dec. 11 snow am clear cold pm The fishing slowed a little today. I think it's the cold front that did it. They still caught fish and lots of little throw backs.
Dec. 10 am clear -4 The first group is on the ice and fishing. The portable that were next to us did very good yesterday. We had 6" of snow [the light fluffy kind] and the trails are in good shape for atv's. I will continue as reports come in. [as of 10:30 there was a 26" and each had kept 4 walleyes] The all day group kept 18 walleyes and the 1/2 day guys kept 14 mixed and 3 slot fish. It pays to use frozen shiners.
Dec. 8 snowy / mild The first houses out of Bostic this year. People who know me know that has never happened before. The ice on the bay at the thinnest is 6.5" and on the lake it's up to 9+". So if the wind is o.k. tomorrow I hope to fish. The water looks clear again.
Dec. 7 clear / cold Hopefully our first real cold night . The ice on the bay is o.k. for atv. travel . And the ice on the lake is blown back. There is a good 6+" on the lake so hopefully we will start pulling a few houses on Sun.
Dec. 5 pm NO GO The ice on the bay is only 3.5" . Not even enough for four wheelers. We need cold and thurs. night we will get some so monday looks like the earliest we'll get houses out. SORRY
Dec. 5 windy /28 Strong south winds have blown the lake open from Graceton Beach to Pine Island. Lucky for us is the area we fish is still there. I am going out to see how far out we can get. And check the ice thickness.
Dec. 4 cold and windy teen's The wind has blown a gap in front of Pine Island. The big sheet has spun and made a high ridge of ice in places . Lucky for us it looks good were we cross so were going out to look at it tomorrow. The Graceton access looks good for once.
Dec. 2 warm 35 We needed to shrink the snow so now we need the cold. It's looking ify for the houses by the weekend . But you never know. The forecast is for a cold front Monday so we'll see.
Nov.29 cloudy 17 Well were back and almost ready. Deer hunting was good I shot a little buck and a big buck. Jean almost shot one but when the safety clicked all she saw was the tail. There is three in. of ice on the bay as of this afternoon. And 2"-4" on the lake with spots were the snow drifted only 1/2".
Nov.1 cool/ windy The fishing has slowed down as the strong wind has clouded the water. This has been one of the coldest falls I have seen. We are going to see if deer hunting is better. There are lots of them running around. So maybe Jean can get hers this year.
Oct.21 cloudy / mild 50 Fishing has gotten real good out front of Pine Island the last three days. Everyone in camp limited out and caught slot and a few over 28" walleyes . You still have to sort because of all the young fish from the last two year classes. 18' with jigs and frozen shiners just east of the pine was the best.
Oct. 18 RAIN AND MORE RAIN /breezy Well it looks like were back to normal. It's nice to have some moisture going into winter. But for those brave enough to go out the walleyes were willing. Fish are coming in shallow water 15'-19' with frozen shiners. Live bait has been working with the clearer water as well.
Oct.16 SUNNY / 60'S What a nice couple days we've had and the fishing has been great also. Fish are coming in from 15'-19' in front of the Morris Pt. gap . Lots of nice walleyes and some slot fish as well. But the forecast is another cold front tonight with n.w. winds. Water temps. are back up to almost 50.
Oct.9 snowy rain / wind The weather is more like Nov. than Oct.. Cool week and wind has slowed everyone down as far as fishing. The only place is the river and the fishing there has been ok. The lake is still dirty from all the wind we've had . But the forecast looks good after this.
Oct. 4 SNOW / WIND Yuck it's to early for this stuff. But I hope this doesn't mean a long fall. When we seem to get snow now we have late ice. Any way it it what it is . Fishing was good when we could get out the fish are in the shallows and walleyes are being caught in good numbers. Shiners are still not realy running in the river . But with the rain maybe there will be some current now. Ducks are flying and the bears are sleeping . Winter is on the way.
Sept. 26 sun / warmer Finally no wind and sunny skies. Fishing is still good and the water is clearing. Ducks and geese have been pouring in to the area. Grouse are being taken in good numbers and yet I can't get a break on My bear hunting. I have been after a large colored boar and he's not playing fair . As he only comes at night and it's late.
Sept. 21 COLD/VERY WINDY Feels like late Oct. rather than Sept. Highs in the 40's wind there too . No fishing to report today just weather. Grouse hunters have had some good results. And duck season opens tomorrow . But I think the wind has sent them headed south as a flock of snow geese just flew by.
Sept.19 windy /cool Yesterday Monte and I went out to 24' in front of the pine and did very good . We were using gold strobe jigs and frozen shiners. The biggest we caught was 24" and we went through three bags of shiners. Most of the fish were small walleyes and saugers. But we did keep 5walleyes and 3 saugers which isn't bad for a couple of hours of non stop catching. The water is cloudy with algee and it looks to be the end of the bloom. So the water should be clearer in the next few days.
Sept.14 sunny / 65 NO WIND The fish are moving in and everyone is catching them if they are jigging. The fish are thick in 27-30' in front of the Morris Point Gap. No skill required just an anchor and live fat heads. Oh the canadas are thick as well.
Sept. 12 cool/ breezy The wind has refused to lay down this week. Fishing yesterday was tough but worth the effort. According to guest We have. They fished Long Point and did well catching a mix of slot and keeper walleyes. Anchor and jigs was the ticket for them.
Sept. 11 hot / windy The last 4 out of 5 days have been very windy . The fish are starting to come in with afew in the river and some of Pine Island. The best fishing is still up in the garden Island area. On this end it's 6 miles out in 32' . I have been chasing black bears and getting some nice trail cam. pic.. Grant has started a guide service for bear hunting and has had 2 real nice bears harvested. Not bad for I think 6 hunters.
Aug. 29 warm / breezy Wind has been the issue the last two days 10-20 out of the south. I had a trip yesterday ( as Grant is guiding bear hunters this week) we pulled plugs and ended with a nice catch of walleyes and saugers. Rick and the boys did good with spinners and night crawlers in 13-20' out in front of Pine Island. He said it was better than down rigging for him. A few geese were gotten by the hunters but the south wind and warm temps are holding the geese up north yet.
Aug. 22 sun / hot 86 The last three days the fishing in 13-16' in front of Pine has been outstanding . With nice 16-18" walleyes in good numbers and right now your all alone there. I knew the cold weather would bring the fish in . They are feeding on shiners but want a crawler on a spinner.( go figure) The rest of the lake is the same but it sure is nice to have the fish close again.
Aug. 17 sunny /72 Yesterday seemed like Sept. with the high of 64 and wind nw at 30+ mph.. Fishing today is a little slow but we are still catching fish. I think the cool weather will get the walleyes moving to the shallows very soon. Most the fish are coming up by the feild in29-32'.
Aug.12 The weather has been outstanding with highs in the low 80's -mid 70's . Rain has been nice and short. The fishing has been the best it has all summer lot of over 28" and 18-19" walleyes being caught this weekend . Bait fishing has been producing some of the biggest fish along with good number . Look for the walleyes to be in the 27'-30'depth and should be heading into Pine Island very soon.
Aug. 5 sun/ cool Almost fall like with 48 this morning . Storms and wind the last couple days has made fishing a little tough for small boats. Grant had a trip on Friday and they limited by noon. Rick and Brian fished today in the big waves and did alright. Still catching fish on night crawlers in 29-32'.
July 29 still hot /sun Fishing continues to be a mix of lots of slot fish and nice 17+" keeper walleyes. Everyone who went out this weekend caught lots of fish . Fish are being caught anywhere from 5 miles out to the mid lake. The group from Grand Meadow did very well and were in by 2:30 . ( I think because of the heat) pic. in the photo page
July 23 still hot / sun We got a little rain yesterday and 2+" hail. Lucky for us there was only a small amount that fell. Fishing was very good again this weekend for those who endured the heat. Bait fishing on the reefs and spinners in 32' or 5 miles out was really good on sat. Down rigging was good all over. Sun. I went musky fishing and had a day that I wouldn't believe if someone told me. First fish was a nice 36", the next was a real good 46.25", and when I thought that was a great day. I caught a 48.5" musky and had 5 follows which alone would be a good day.(pic. on facebook)
July 19 hot / sun The bite has continued to be very good this week. We are finding walleyes in some not so normal places. The Graceton reef for instance, has been good for a couple weeks now. Also out in front of Pine Island in 19-22' has been on and off. But down rigging is good from 5 miles out to Garden Island. Garden Island as well as most of the reefs have been producing big numbers of slot walleyes . So all of those who wanted the big walleyes the time to come is now.
July 13 hot / light rain and sun Fishing has been good out in front of Pine or out to Long point . Seems any place you pull a spinner with a night crawler you catch some fish. The reefs up north have been the best. Down rigging has been good 6-12 miles out. We caught some nice mid 20's today.
July 7 nice / sun Fishing was great for almost everyone . Down rigging 3-15 miles out was very good . Bait fishing in front of Pine was good for those pulling spinners with n.c.. Jig fishing was o.k. most were out about 10 miles.
July 5 hot breezy/ sun The fourth was full of fire works, storms in the after noon and the display at Baudette. Fishing was good in the morning and the rain kept everyone in most of the day. The big school is 8-15 miles out with lot of walleyes all along.
July 2 hot/ stormy Grant had a trip in the heat and humidity for 5 people. As luck would have it they were able to limit out before the storm came. The fishing has been outstanding the last 4 days. Bait fishing or down rigging it doesn't matter. The fish are out in the mud in 34' about 8 miles out.
July 1 sun / hot The stable weather has really turned the big walleyes on . We had two 29+ fish come in for mounting. And reports of lots of slot fish coming from every one. One 29.5" was caught by 3 year old Drew with a little help from dad. The other was caught on a jig and shiner . Both fish came from 34' of water in the middle of the lake.
June 30 sunny/ hot Finally no wind!! The bite was good today out 8-10 miles with some nice walleyes and lots of over 19.5" fish. In by pine there are still some nice walleyes but they are getting less and less everyday. Jigs and shiners or down rigging was the ticket out deep. Rick and family had a great day with a nice limit for the 5 of them.
June 26 hot / windy The bite out in front of Pine Island is still going good with some nice catches of 17"-18" walleyes. And up north by Little Oak and Garden Island the bite is even better. Most fish are coming on spinners with min., night crawler, or leech. Jigs and frozen shiners are still producing in the deeper waters.
June 23 sun /warm Just like the weather the fishing has gotten better. The walleyes are coming from 28' as well as 20' or less . Lots of saugers in the deeper waters. And lots of 12"-14" walleyes in the shallows. One needs to be patient in both areas as the fish are some what scattered yet. Down rigging has been slow yet.
June 20 rain /warm After a week of up and down weather it looks like we're in for a break. Hopefully the sun and good weather will get the fish going again. Walleyes have been going in 26'-32' along the border. Some nice walleyes and big northern have come from the shores of Birch Beach. And they have been doing good on the reefs up north.
June 16 rain / breezy Short shower and 20 mph. west winds. Fishing has been fairly good the winds not so much. I went out at 6:oopm and caught around 15 fish in 2.5 hours . Most were saugers with a few nice walleyes that almost got into the boat. It was one of those days when they just came unhooked at the top. Boats have been running up to Garden as the fishing has been good up there for a couple weeks now.
June 12 cool / windy After three days of rain and wind we went out to find where the fish were at. The water out front was dirty so we went out to 29' in front of the jetty in front of Zipple. We caught more slots than keepers using jigs and frozen shiners or live fat heads.
June 8 hot / windy Fishing is still going strong along Pine Island in 6-10' using jigs and min. or spinners and night crawlers.
June 7 hot / light winds No change in the fishing . Still going strong in the shallows drifting spinners with night crawlers. And in the deeper water jigs and frozen shiners.
June 5 hot / calm If you like 80's for temps. this is the place too be . The warmer weather has the fish feeding pretty good. Fish are being caught all around the lake and with the lack of wind you can go where ever you want. The deep bite is going again with nice catches coming from 28' out front as well as along the island. The sun and heat are making it seem like July .
June 3 clouds / cooler Beautiful day and great fishing to go with it . Fish are coming from the shallow water of Pine Island. Spinners with leech or night crawler are working well. And the jig bite in 15-18 feet was very good. The shiners are spawning in the shallows and has brought the walleyes back in. This should last a week or so.
June 2 Three days in a row And the fish liked it!! Fishing was great today for those who stayed close. Anywhere from 6'-18' was awesome. One group said it was the best they ever had and they have been coming for years. Jared went out and caught lots of nice sized walleyes with three slot fish in a couple hours.
June 1 sun / warm Fishing was good for everyone , well almost. Rick started out with the jig fishing and caught most of their fish doing that. But everyone who knows him knows if there not jumping in he's off to something else. Today that was down rigging, after all it is June. He did catch a few doing that. The twin's caught their first fish with a little help.
May 31 sunny / and warm That's right I said warm . After a week of cool weather we caught some warm finely . Jared and Myself went fishing last evening. We fished deep and found nothing then went to 16' in front of the pine and at sunset had a good run a 16-17" walleyes . Had we not lost and missed as many as we did we should have boated 20+ fish.
May 28 Memorial Day sun / breeze 63 Got to go out after a rainy, cold, and windy day yesterday. Tony caught a very nice 27"walleye and we managed to get all the fish they needed to take their limit home. Today the fish were in 27' they were probably there all along but we weren't. And just like that the sun has come out and the wind has gone down as everyone has gone home. Thanks to all who served.
May 26 cool / breezy 61 Took Jean's dad Tony out for his 80th birthday and we limited out with walleyes and saugers. We didn't get the big one though. Lucky we have another day to find one. We fished the same area in 28+' with fz shiners.
May 25 wind / cold 52 Jean and I went fishing yesterday and did very good. We caught 8 walleyes and 4 saugers in three hours. We fished in28' with fz shiners and leeches. Jean caught a nice 23"walleye that we released of course. Today the people who went out were rewarded with some nice walleyes . Everyone has been fish around the same area. But I know there are still good fish in the shallows as the water temp. is still cool.
May 21 nice Everyone seems to be fishing deeper in part to the wind we had on sat.. The fishing had been really good in close with spinners or jigs. But the wind clouded the shallows and slowed that fishing down. The shallows should be good in a day or so depending on the wind. The deep bite has been from 24' to 31' . Both areas are producing big fish.
May 17 hot / sunny Fish seemed to be in the shallows or deep. Twenty four feet was good anchored and jigging . While spinners with night crawlers or leeches worked in the shallows 5'-13'.
May 16 cool / light north wind Started the evening with Jean and she caught her 4 walleyes and got cold. So back in we went and I got Jared . The two of us went over in front of the pine in 15'. Bob, Kenny, and Rick were in the same depth by the end of the island. All of us limited on walleyes , Jared and Myself got our saugers as well. We fished jigs and frozen shiners.
May 14 warm / calm The fish seem to be everywhere. From 7'-28' and anywhere in between. Everyone is getting fish wether trolling, drifting, or jigging. The fish look thin like they took a couple weeks of of feeding. That should mean the bite should be heating up. The big fish for the opener was a 26.5" walleye caught by Tony. Way to go.
May 13 warm / windy high 70's Fishing was like yesterday with limits out in 20+ and some nice fish in close. Once the wind goes down the fishing should be awesome . Frozen shiners are still the ticket but leeches and fatheads are working as well.
May 12 sun/wind Well some did good some did fair. That sums up the fishing today . They were challenged by 30 mph. winds out of the sw. Fish were in 7' or 20'+ biting on leeches and minnows , frozen shiners were the best . The biggest fish so far is 26" walleye and lots of 22"- 24" fish were caught so I think we will see a larger walleye win the money.
May 11 Here we go again. The outlook for the opener is good . We had a very good winter and spring harvest and expect the spring and summer to be as good [maybe better]. Find out tomorrow.
