As said keep Case in until there is a major meltdown (if there ever is). The Rams are playing well but I think if the defense can hold them to less than 21 (the race to 21), we will win. I was on the way back from deer camp listening to Paul on the radio glad they won. The schedule is going to get tougher.

One of the better times of the year is when the water hits 37-38* on some bodies of water. Soon if the weather trend continues.

Late report but I had some success the last 2 weeks of the WI inland trout season in western WI. I usually use raps and spinners for the bigger fish but this time hook, split shot and worm seemed to work the best. Released several browns that were "keepers" and only kept a few for the smoker. Its a nice treat while out on the ice in the middle of winter (or anytime for that matter)! Some of these fish came in new waters that I never have explored before, with my pb coming in at just under 18". Will have to wait till next year now but look forward to the fall walleye bite and hard ice to come!

Went out this past weekend a little north east of Mille Lacs and we got 3 birds for a day and a half of hunting. Got them all the first few hours so I was optimistic but never panned out. Saturday turned dark and windy with storms later in the evening and Sunday was sunny but windy again. The birds seemed to be a little further in the woods yet only saw 1 eating gravel. Heard similar reports from those that stopped by on wheelers and what not. AND THE TICKS WERE OUT!! The dog had several dozen on him through out the weekend and we each had a few on us as well. All wood ticks. As the weather turns here they should be gone by next weekend. Going back up to do stand work will report when I return.

Seen a LSF sticker on a blue sedan driving north on 61 @ lower afton about 930 this morning. Been awhile since I seen one. Will have a fishing report once I get home from work. Tight lines!

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!
