We only bagged 2 birds between 4 of us for a day and a half's worth of hunting. The weather was not ideal and the better day was Sunday. Our group kicked up about 10 and the other group about the same. Like most have said, pretty thick out there need the leaves to fall. Will be going back up in 2 weeks will report then.

Along with gill netting during the spawn and other "mortalities", I totally agree with fishnpole and Mr. Sterberg. The same thing is happening to the kinni as we speak. Can keep 5 fish under 12". This is going to create the same problem, but on a much more fragile system. All big fish that you can't keep with the small ones dwindling away.

Grand Rapids area report

Sorry for the late post as this report was from the week of 8/12-8/19. I have been busy with work and what not since I've been back. We took our other annual family vacation (my side of the family) to a Grand Rapids area lake that we've been going to for 4 years now. We usually target panfish and walleye and this year seemed to be a little better than the previous year or two.

The walleye action was not fast and furious but we caught a total of 16 walleye for the week, with the size range being from 15-20". We averaged 1-3 fish a day. The best method seemed to be trolling in 8-15 fow towards dusk and into the first hour of the night. Only 1 walleye was caught in the morning. The best lures seemed to be SR5's, flicker shads, cordells and husky jerks. Best colors were any perch variation or fluorescent chartreuse. We tried jigging raps out in 30-40 fow when we found pods of fish on the graph but had no luck. Also no luck dragging or rigging live bait over multiple depths. We even tried slip bobber fishing during the evening with fat heads and leeches but had minimal luck. 1 bonus 13" cappie though.

As for the sunfish, we tried to find the deepest, greenest weeds possible. This lake is known to grow weeds in different spots every year, so we scouted around and found some nice cabbage patches in 12-14' fow in select bays and the fish were there, along with the rock bass. We used multiple lures, the tinier the better it seemed, with a small chunk of crawler. Water temps seemed to be 72-75* all week until the rain at the end then it dipped to 69*. Overall it was a fun, relaxing week with catching fish as a side bonus and we cannot wait to go back again already next year. As a side note, we have never caught as many northern during a single week, with a 2 hr outings catching as many as 30 fish. No real size, some reaching 25". The last picture shows what they were doing to the lures. Good luck out there as we head into the fall!

I think there is something to look forward to if the O-line can hold up and we aren't injury plagued again. It is the NFL, we shall see.

Interesting. I didn't even know that brook trout are part of the char family, as are bull trout. Nice catch.

Thank you for the comments the fishing this year was definitely better. This is the 4th year going back and we have always thrown back 2-3 times more than we caught. These were the fish we kept for the entire week. And it goes to show. Bottlebass that gill was just under 10" we caught 2 that were barely over 10" that went back for another day. Heading up to the Cohasset area in a few weeks will be sure to report.

As fishabass said, thank you for taking care of our vets. And I thank our vets for all they do in protecting and serving our country. Sorry I do not know the lake that well so I had no advice to give. It looks like you guys did well for yourselves and had a good meal! All dandy fish with a bonus big crappie!

Wow that is a LARGE trout! Is bull trout the specie or what kind is it? It has similar fins as a brook trout with similar speckling but not as detailed. Anyway congrats on the catch!

Took the annual vacation to a Polk Co. WI lake last week and had fair success with the panfish once again. This year the fish seemed to be in different places than before. We caught them in 3.5-16 f.o.w. It seemed to be that the bigger fish were caught in 10+ f.o.w. Tired to relate to small patches of protruding weeds. Used crappie minnows, 1in. gulps, and worms but most successful seemed to be power bait crappie nibbles in fluorescent yellow. Best jig was VMC pink/white skirt. Let most of the 10+ go and kept enough for a few meals. Water looked a little more cloudy with algae than before also and was around 75 degrees. Good luck out there as we head into August.

I am in the same situation as pwally and have never owned a boat let alone electronics (besides fl-8). What kind of battery would be needed to run a unit like the helix 5 sonar/gps?
