We are ready to kick this summer into high gear!  Most of the projects are done and the guides are ready to hit the lake full time.  Graduation parties are happening this weekend and it is time to get out and enjoy the best Minnesota has to offer!  Speaking of graduations, we are greatly pleased to have not just one Valedictorian but two Co-Valedictorians of the class of 2013 working with us for the summer, congratulations Sara and Emily!  Your hard work and perseverance will reward you for years to come.

We have witnessed some changes in fishing and weather this past week.  Out on the lake has been where the action is.  We started off fishing just off of Pine Island and the action was great earlier in the week.  After the rains dissipated and the river mud and debris started to come by the Walleye bite slowed.  There were many anglers including our guides moving around and trying different areas, depths and presentations.  The last couple of days have provided morning and evening bites with mid-day lulls.  It may have something to do with the Full Moon.  We are still fishing off of Pine Island from 10-22 feet of water.  Mostly anchoring and jigging but also doing some drifting with jigs.

The success for the week has been great, many nice eaters for shore lunch and 17-18 inch keepers to take home with trophies being caught and released daily.

Our forecast for the week looks typical for May with highs into 70’s and lows to 50’s, of course the possible showers and thunderstorms are predicted.
