WGS- It is dark water, so visibility will be limited. There are no carp that far up the river, so your targets will be very limited.

Heading up to the lake in a couple weeks. Used to come up every year but its been a decade or so since we fished this lake. Any tips or good reports on the Pike, walleye bite? Never used to catch a lot of walleye back in the day but sounds like from reading some previous posts that they are definitely out there to be caught. Any little bit of feedback would be much appreciated! Thanks guys
Can any of you fellow musky nuts help me out. Im coming up to nokomis to musky fish for the next few days and just wondering what colors are favored by the muskies on this body of water. I know this flowage can be a tough bite for muskies but I really want to learn it. Common sense tells me that orange, chartreuse, white and yellow would be good picks, but ive fished dark water flowages before where the preferred color is black or brown. For whatever reason. Also, when throwing bucktails and spinner baits, what metallic color do they seem to prefer on your blades. Ive got plenty of copper, silver, gold and metallic red and sometimes I wonder if Im wasting my precious fishing time throwing gold or copper when I should be throwing silver. Flowages are tricky sometimes so Im just trying to narrow down my bait selections. Thanks for any help ahead of time and best of luck to everyone. I will post a detailed report when our trip is done.

Came up this past weekend for a quick fishing trip. Arrived Friday afternoon and launched the boat right away. We looked shallow for panfish right away and we found a handful but nothing like we were hoping for. My buddy did manage a very nice 10 1/4" bluegill so that was nice. Tried for walleyes that evening and caught some but no legals. Saturday morning we were up early and it was awfully cold for the end of June. Tried a few humps and points without any luck so we switched to jigging the deep water in the river channel and found some nice walleyes and perch on 1/16th oz jigs and crawlers. Ran over to Nokomis Pub for lunch and after we were done, we began trolling in 8-10 FOW. We managed a couple more walleye but only one legal and 5 nice crappies all 11" long. Trolled #5 flicker shads 40-50 back behind the boards with clown and fire tiger being the best colors. Had a great time, 4 legal eyes kept, the 5 crappies, some perch and a couple gills. Will be back up early Saturday morning for the 4th. Good luck out there and keep the reports coming.

If anyone is looking or knows of anyone looking for a lakefront lot or backlot on Lake Nokomis, please let me know. The property is located in a bay on the northern part of the lake when heading toward the river. We have 3 lakefront lots left and 9 backlots.
