1st trip up there this year we were a couple weeks to early. Second time had some good fishing. Coming for the 3rd and final time this year. Hoping the 3rd time is going to be great. Didnt fish the east side last 2 times. Going to give it a shot and hope to land some nice fish. Bringing my brother who dont get to fish much. Any tips and suggestions? Looking to catch panfish, bass, northern and wouldnt mind catching my first musky.

Humdrum, sounds like they will drop the level a couple more feet but not drop like the last two years. That was a while back so....

Guided Marty,Brian and Brandon for walleye and crappie out of Deerfoot. We started out with crappie and in an hour and a half we caught a bunch of crappie but only kept a few for the pan. Lots of small ones to weed though.we then switch to walleye and ended up catching 3 with two shorts and one 19 inch keeper. They ended up with just enough fish for a fish fry.

Saturday I guided Marty for musky out of Big musky resort. Saturday morning in the first hour Marty had a blow up on a nice size musky and never got a hook in the fish. Then 20 minutes later Marty had a huge musky follow but never saw the fish because of the alge bloom. Later that night I guided Brian out of Sisko's for walleye and crappie and we had a slow night. We caught crappie but not a lot. We switch to walleye and found it even slower.

Sunday I guided Marty again for musky and we hit the spots agian were we saw fish and right away I had a fish miss a creeper. That was all we saw in the morning. We continued our day at 5pm and worked our way back to the fish that kept missing our baits. At about 7:30 Marty throws a cast were I had a miss in the morning and gets the fish to hit and hooked em this time. After a small battle we boated a fish we named Blind Alex. Was a great end to a two day trip.

Monday I guided Lowel and his big group for crappie. We had action but brief at ech spot. We moved around a bit and ended up with a dozen big ones with a 12 incher being the biggest.

I drop Lowel off and went I n serch of walleye on east side. I had only crawlers for live bait and that was not working. I switched to trolling and caught 4 eyes at 14,14.75,18 and a 22. Also caught one northern. Released them all. Fish were 15 foot down in 19 fow.

This week I have one opening on Thursday morning. Otherwise im booked til after Labor Day. Call or e-mail me to book a trip. Deano

What are current water levels like compared to the average for this time of year. Also, will there be additional draw downs to expose milfoil this fall/winter? Smile

Guided Mike and his two 9 year old son's yesterday out of shady Nook Resort for some Crappies. Fished all the classic crappies spots on the East side. Cribs, sunken bogs and rock bars using slips and 1/16 Oz jigs tipped with GULP! Some cribs we're just loaded with fish and others we're bare. The bite was a bit slow for the most part but when it was all said and done we had 20 in the box that were going to make great table fare.

The young men kept me busy through out the course of the trip but did pretty good considering it was their first time fishing with the big boy rods.

Give me a call or email me and make you plans for a September fishing trip.

Good luck and we'll see you on the water! TC

Fishing has been really slow for me. Only caught 1 crappie,2 bass, and a northern in a day and a half. Fishing on the east side. Any tips on how to fish these waters would be appreciated?

We need some stable weather! Fishing was decent in that hot stretch because it was stable- The best crappie fishing of the year is around the corner. I have also done well trolling on the flowage for Walleye-its a good way to find them when fishing is slow-then you can fish them slow with live bait and have confidence your near some fish. Its amazing some of the places I have been locating fish trolling that I normally wouldn't fish in if I was looking for them on a slow live bait presentation-JIM

Bluegill, that all depends on what species of fish your targeting. West side for LG mouth, Northern, crappies and walleye, but that bite has slowed. Once water temps cooled and the algae bloom is done, the fish will be more active. until then, I've been working mostly the East side. Finding Crappies, walleye and SM bass down deep around rock bars and cribs. Musky action remains decent with bucktails and surface baits as well.
