Heading up for my annual family vacation and hoping the fish are in there summer patterns of deep weed edges and deep rock? If not going to have to adjust tactics but haven’t fished any earlier than the end of July in many years so not sure how to approach this years trip with the crazy weather we have had? I can personally attest to the fly fishing as the biggest gills(almost 10’ers) I have ever caught we’re when a storm was about to roll through and I noticed fish surfacing that we’re eating  bugs so I casted my crawler chunk amongst the bubbles and to my delight was rewarded with the biggest gills I have ever seen so I can only imagine how wonderful the fly fishing would be! Might have to give that a try especially early morning when I have also seen the fish feasting on bugs! Anyway looking forward to another week in gods country and hopefully a Friday fish fry! Any advice greatly welcomed and appreciated? I would really love to learn a effective way to catch eyes in the weeds because the cribs and rock fishing has been good but the size of the eyes I catch leave much to be desired. I’m thinking the bigger fish live in the weeds because the biggest eyes I have ever caught all come from the dock at night so I know they use the weeds but just not sure how to fish them? I also only fish out of a pontoon which limits my methods somewhat and as much as I would love to troll a crawler harness above the weeds I would like to find a way to fish the weeds by casting from the pontoon? Thanks for any advice and PM is on!! Tight lines and take a kid fishing!! I will have anywhere from 1-8 kids fishing so catching is somewhat important! Can’t wait for Saturday

Thank you. Lived on and fished chain for 25 yrs. Relatively new to fly fishing. Never tried scuds but will now. Unusual year with water temps.

You didn't say which lake. I go up and fish the chain every year 3 or 4 time a year. I mostly fish Spirit Lake but I get out on the chain and fish Medicine, Little Fork and Big Fork along Laurel. I have a great time there every time I go.

First time I fished this lake.  Took some looking around but caught some nice jumbo 10-12" perch and 7-8 inch blue gills.  Fish had excellent color and very clean.  Boat Landing excellent.  Will fish again.

Fished last weekend in 6 to 8 fow around weeks with minnow and 1/8 oz jigs and picked up walleyes, Crappie & perch. Bluegills were in shallow weeds 2-3 ft.on small lakes. Also used slip bobbers but hooked more fish with slow retrieve on the bottom.

Plenty of fish out there if you put time on the water.

I'm coming to three lakes this upcming weekend with my dad and brother for father's day weekend.  Was wondering if anyone had any reports or help catching panfish or walleyes.  We are staying on Rangeline lake, but will be traveling to other lakes on the chain.  Any help would be great.

The best way I have found to catch crappies out here is find a 10 ft rise close to shore and anchor by it.  Use 1/32 jig with minnow under the boat.  Let it hit bottom and come up 2 ft and wait.
