OK, so I think I have this figured out. Any posts that are not pure fishing reports have to be posted on this forum in order to keep from being dusted. Fair enough, I guess. So, in the future we need to check here until the season opens and we can start to post/receive actual reports.

Basically it means there will be nothing on the other location for stretches of 7 months or more. But at least we can keep in touch here.

Now how do we get that word out? I'll try posting it at the other site and hope it doesn't get dusted.

I have been going to LDML Lake for over 45 years, we have never made it to Bolton Bay.  We have used lindy rigs tipped with minnows and worms for walleye.  We have used Chubs and crank baits for Northern Pike.  We have caught jumbo perch with the lindy rigs tipped with minnows and  worms.  One of my favorite spots is Owl Island!  Hope you are doing well.  Love any updates with the fishing and water level.  We are heading up July 14-21, probably my Dad's last time, so a little sad.

How is the water level?  Is it normal, high or low?

Anyone ever make it back into Bolton Bay?  There’s a portage that will take you into KASHABOWI LAKE.

We’re heading up to lac des mille lodge over the July 4th week.  I’ve never been there before and am very excited to give it a try.  Any suggestions on colors, baits, lures, etc?  Anything to get us pointed in the right direction.
Looks like the last group had a blast.  

Can’t wait!

Ducer,
Thanks for the additional information.  Too bad about all the wind.

We caught fish all over considering sometimes all we were trying to do is get out of the 35 mile an hour winds one day and a 42 mile an hour gusts another day  it wasn’t our best trip but considering the constant weather changes we did ok. Like I said earlier it snowed!! It was in the 70s 2 days before

Ducer,
Nice posts and nice pictures.  How was the water level?  Did you fish around Owl Island at all?  Looks like you had a great time! July can't come fast enough.

I had a little bit of a problem posting, but I think I have it figured out? We had good luck, mostly on jig and minnow, but we also caught fish with leeches. For the first time in many years, the entire lake was the same temperature, which was about 58°, although after the snow, it dropped down to 55. Rob and Riley at the lodge have made more improvements.  Our best colors were gold and white blue orange combination jigs. Although I’m not sure that would’ve made a difference. We caught fish anywhere from 2 feet to 25 feet. We caught enough fish for sure lunch and 10 people brought home their limits of quality fish. Can’t wait for next year.
Year 
 number 36!

Thanks GoFishIA, we are confirmed at Thousand Lakes Resort on Cushing Lake for July 14-21.  Have been going to Lac Des Mille Lac lake every other year for 40 years.  Just wondering how the conditions are.  Where do you live in Iowa?  We are in Iowa City Area.

Anyone still posting on this site?  Anyone up at Cushing Lake or Lac Des Mille Lac?  How is the fishing?  How is the water level?  Hoping to come up in July.
