Went up to clean up some tree damage last weekend. Not really a fishing trip, but tossed a few off the pier and fished Tenderfoot for Musky one morning and Walleyes one evening.
Musky weren't cooperating, but I did get a few walleyes up on Tenderfoot. They were already on some mid-summer spots.
Extremely windy during the day and the Mosquitoes are getting crazy. We're back up for a week from the 2nd on.

We did pretty well. Only fished it on Monday, and we used the in-laws pontoon, so I didn't have my electronics with me. Never made it to Tenderfoot, just Palmer. Winds were too strong on Saturday, and the torrential downpour on Sunday stopped us from fishing those two days. Fished other lakes on other days. I was surprised we did as well as we did on Monday with all of the previous rain and wind.

Jeff how did you do?? I was out today, tenderfoot looking for walleyes, got skunked. On the drop off by the boat house I had some decent panfish and occasional bass.
There's no lake association on Palmer. It's a public landing tended to by the DNR. You should see the landing come August.
"Have the Crappie spawned yet?"
Also, the Crappies were moving like nuts over the opener, we must have caught 30 of them jigging and slipping for eyes. They're long done now.
went here Tuesday morning....black flies & skeeters were horrible...got 2 walleyes & went home...thought the foggy cold morning would help with the flies...nope,,,........On a different note....I wish the lake ass. would ban power loading on this launch...saw a big Ranger with a 200 Yamaha make a huge mud mess that carried out darn near the wild rice beds...if a person can afford 30 grand to sit in 6 ft. of water to catch 6 inch fish...I would have to guess they could afford a power winch...Michigan is taking that bull by the horns at their launches...sure wish Wi. did the same....It's hard not to say something but you can't teach people to care if they don't already
I had a friend up there during the Memorial Day weekend... He told me that the crappies had finished spawning already then and were already on the first break... I told him that's what shallow water does for an environ... No idea on the water temps that far north...
