was out on minnetonka sunday night. fished all sorts of structures, depths and methods. got a couple small walleyes trolling the edge of reefs in 13-16ft (weedlines) with minnows on a live bait rig. after that i trolled some cranks with no success. finished in the evening by casting spinners in various shallow, weedy areas. the pike are really on in shallow weeds. i got probably 30 or so pike. mostly small but a few good ones. all were in < 6' of water. good times. i should have spent the whole time fishing the shallows. didn't see many bass, but did get one that was hanging out with the pike in the weeds.
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
