Caught a half a dozen small northern on chartreuse rapalas, and smaller natural painted rapalas. All fish seen were fairly shallow, ten feet or less. Caught two nice walleye roughly 3lbs ea. Had one day that was a little windy, but couldn't get anything to bite from 10A til about 3P. Trolled and threw everything in the box on the downwind side with the waves kickin and rollin', and saw fish everywhere that day on the north side of Whitefish from the Trout entrance east. Caught walleye at night around 10P in the narrows between Whitefish and Rush. Had short hits on leeches, but no winners. Rapalas seemed to be most successful. Saw but couldn't entice any hits on the northwestern shore in Crosslake with the wind out of the southeast, which was later afternoon. If we'd have fished harder/more, I think we would've had more success. Kept one 4lb. northern. Ate him and the walleye.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
