Well folks, parts of the lake was a media circus, but if you could ignore all the brew-ha-ha, the fishing wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. I fished around Bear Island and out by Huddles and Pine Point most of the weekend. Lots of northerns out there and we caught them too. The Walleye bite was a bit tougher but we managed several over 21" in the morning. Lots of perch along with a few crappies were caught too. Walleyes were caught on jigheads with shiners and crawlers.
There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot. - HookedGood
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
