I drove through Storm Lake on Saturday on the way to Sectionals in Sioux Rapids. I fished Crawford Creek(Battel Creek) on Sunday and the gills would not say no. Ended up giving a few of them a ride home with me.

Storm Lake-including Little Storm Lake

Fishing has been very good, but a little spotty after fronts move through. Remember that Storm Lake has a 17-22 inch slot length limit. All walleye in that range must be released.

Channel Catfish - Good: Catfish are starting to bite on worms and cut bait from shore and in the rocks.

White Bass - Good: White bass are being caught at Frank Starr Park and off the rocks on the big island by throwing twisters and crankbaits.

Walleye - Excellent: Anglers are still catching fish while trolling slowly with Shad Raps. Good colors are: hot steel, clown, purple haze and perch. People have been having good luck drifting with live bait using 1/8 ounce jig heads around Frank Starr, south of big island and the college island.

Fishing has been good. A little spotty after weather fronts moved through. Remember that Storm Lake has a 17-22 inch slot length limit. All walleye in that range must be immediately released. Channel Catfish - Excellent: As lake warms the catfishing has improved. They are biting on a variety of baits from shore and in the rocks. White Bass - Good: White bass are being caught at Frank Starr Park and off the rocks on the big island by throwing twisters and crankbaits. Anglers have also started to catch whites off the north shore west of Chautauqua jetty. Walleye - Good: Anglers are still catching fish while trolling slowly with Shad Raps. Good colors are: hot steele, clown, purple haze and perch. People have been having good luck drifting with live bait using 1/8 ounce jig heads around Frank Starr, south of big island and the college island.

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
