The weather changed from sunny and warm to cool and windy, and it has been that way for the past 10 days or so. The wind has blown from the east for the majority of that time. The fish have gone from 3-6 feet of water down to 12-20 feet. The reports we are getting from the guests who come out of the camps are that the bigger pike are slow and just following up to the boat but not to interested in biting. Walleyes seem to be in a fairly normal pattern and in the past few days there has been more and more reports of 25-27 inch walleye being caught and released.
We have been fortunate in the far north that we have not gotten the heavy rains that areas south of us have had. Our water levels are just perfect, and going down. The farther north you go the drier it has been, which usually means we will get some fires but nothing yet.
We have had a year of awful mosquitos. From what I understand though, we are not the only ones. If you are going fishing in the north, pack your mosquito coils and bug spray. The long winter did nothing to them except make them angry.
Here are a few of the Big ones from last week.
The Bowling Party fished Shearstone last week and had some great fishing and awesome times. They caught a lot of walleye with a few big ones measuring 26, 27, and 28 inches! They caught some nice pike too!
The Frazer party made their annual trip to Loree Lake. Fishing was as good as ever, here is Walter with the pike of the trip.
The Hendricks party made their 2nd trip to Darkwater lake. Here are some pictures of some of the big ones
