Got out late morning today the wind was humming good out of the NE about 20mph making fishing most spots I wanted to out of the question, so I worked some channels off of fox lake to stay out of the wind. Bite was pretty slow, but I did manage 4 walleye today 3 short and 1 for the fry pan at about 16". All fish taken pitching a jig and minnow combo. Had a little problem with the foot pedal of my trolling motor so I called the day early so I could go home and clean the control contacts that had some crap inside it. Back in buisness after the once over. I guess I should have done that pre season :oops:

Nice report RSS. I talked to a friend of mine that said they were wacking some crappie and nice gill's on the north end of Channel right off the weed edge.

Do you ever pick up Musky jig and minnow fishing there?

No ski's on jig and minnow, but they do like to run down a spinner or buzz bait while bassin. Water level is about 6-8" high right now which is nice. Plenty of water and decent current. I hope to make it out after work later this week. Hey JD lets do it.
