Was on the Whitefish Chain for awhile (early June), and fishing was a bit slow. Seems like it has been raining non-stop. The water is very high. The dam at Crosslake is open, which creates significant current between Whitefish, Rush, and Crosslake in the narrows. Walleye were running in the narrows day and night, slow biting during the day, more active during low light. Northern were slow as well. The BIG HAZARD was the weekenders! The Whitefish chain has become a zoo on weekends with people that run their boats across your trolling lines, pass you at full bore a mere 30 feet away, (knocking over my pop because of huge wake), ignore no wake zones, and don't get me started on the jet skis. Gave up on using planer boards because I had to wave two guys off before they ran into them on their way to the bar. The boards weren't that wide, and they had flags. What ever happened to consideration and common decency? One would think that on a chain of lakes the size of the Whitefish chain, you could find a quiet spot. Sometimes you can, I guess, but that's not always where the fish are.

Saw the lake police checking for life preservers on the little kids due to the new law as well. Witnessed four boats checked. Wish they would do a breath test, and common sense check as well....

I dont' wanna sound like a snitch or anything like that.. BUT I would be getting on my cell phone if it worked out there and dialin up the 911 in an attempt to get the DNR in their boats out there to fine the idiots who are putting others in jeopardy like that. Spilling the pop is no big deal.. but the wake from 30 feet away .... that would most likely chase the fish from where you're actually at.. not to mention risk of turning over your boat or throwing you from your boat.

Lifejacket rule btw.. I think should apply to everyone.. no matter of age.



Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!

This is one of the reasons I refuse to fish Minnetonka. Last time I was there, I had to wait an hour and a half just to get the boat on, then I had to deal with all the inconsiderate jerks out on the water.

I don't mind people pulling up and fishing near you. Sometimes it's a great way to meet new people who like fishing, but the people who ignore the rules, go as fast and close as they can and ruin the fishing because of their antics, are people I don't hang with.... Makes me wish we still had the "Ol Western Justice."

Get a rope...
