The last week of July thru August 3 we were fishing the Whitefish Chain. Fished 50% of the time on Whitefish, 40% on Crosslake, and 10% on Little Pine. We usually hit Trout and Whitefish the hardest- just didn't work out that way this year. ANYWAY, picked up some nice 3 and 4 pound walleyes from Whitefish. Usually between 9 and 10PM, trolling green rapalas with 2 and 3 and 4 ounce snap weights and planer boards in 35 to 55 foot of water on the west side of Foley's bar. Fish were generally hanging between 25 and 45 ft. deep. Caught a few 5 lb northerns in Crosslake, trolling, with clear colored rattlin rapalas, usually mid to late afternoon. Fish were stacked in Little Pine at the entrance, tried slip bobbers with leeches, but failed miserably.
Caught enough for dinner, numbers were few, but quality was good. Hotter than heck, too!
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
