Rainy has a good bite going for large fish for the last year and a half so for a larger trophy that would be a lake to look at. Leech sounds like it is going well this year. Kab puts out some niced sized fish, and you can't overlook lake of the woods as a top eye destination. Closer to home I'd say Redwing and Lake Pepin. Lots of great walleye waters around the state.

Leech was pretty incredible a week ago during the FLW tournament. I've never caught more walleyes between 20-26" in my life. Pretty phenomenal fishing and we caught them on many presentations as well.

Minnetonka, The best lake for all species of fish. Best time to fish middle of week mornings. NO crowds. Pick a fish any fish. That is unless you travel north. My best fishing experience Lake of the wood.

If I had to pick one lake to fish for the rest of my life it would be Leech.

As for which lake I fish the most though, it's much closer to home and not much more than a duck slough...

Mille Lacs is putting out right now. If you want a meal, might as well go somewhere else, but if you want to have a blast catching big fish, it's a great place to be. It is a bit tough to crack that 28 inch mark, but no kidding, the average fish is 25-26 inches. Where else can you do that in Minnesota right now?

The Minnesota river. Many pigs have been getting caught on bullhead bait while fishing for flatheads. Some outings, those pesky eyes won't leave ones bait along.

Sounds like I should make a ML run for a few days.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
