  1. GRASSY NARROWS

    Has anybody been on grassy area lately? We were up the first week of Jun and did pretty well lots of trout and nords walleye was a little tough had to keep looking for them they were spotty but some good fish considering the water temp then only about 55 then. Things look to be warming now, so just seeing whats up for our Jul 7 trip?
  2. Water Temps

    Has the water temp around Kenora been going up or is staying about the same hasnt been very warm up there I see
  3. Yes weve used them they held up and caught fish but I didnt like the scent frozen was catching more fish
  4. Ive been freezing for a long time tried the dry salt etc My Opinion is putting them in a salt brine heavy salt enough that the water wont absorb anymore you will see it laying in the bottom soak them for about 10 hrs drain them let them dry a little and bag them 2doz in a bag ive had them in a small bait cooler all day thawed and they dont get nasty smelly are good and firm and outfish gulp or fake but not as good as live now some dont freeze as well as others the head on a shiner tends to break up a little thats a silver shiner goldees freeze better rainbows are best river chubs do well also sucker have a tendency to get soft but they are better in this brine solution. There are preserved minnows on the market that work well too but to me it seems about the same as gulp
  5. GAS PRICES

    Well I got back last night had a great time got into lakers really good I too left the boat there for future trips and added 1 buddy to the trips and costs were the same if not cheaper when I was on the water I did things different so I wasnt running the 150 gas hog so much tried to find places closer by but the walleye wanted to go to the far ends of the water so we did a lot of trolling on the way back searching out new and exciting spots and it worked I think I got some new great spots for Jul trip. Hey I caught a 4lb smalley that had been tore up by a nord or muskie man what size fish would try to eat that. The bass was opened up to its insides you could see the intestines. I noticed a lot of the resorts were nearly empty but a lot of campers one group that came in where I stayed had gotten all new camping gear and was doing that so they could keep coming up thats not good for resorts without camping one will be hurting and another will do better the way it looks. Hemlock I missed ya but the minnows did well LOL!
