Of killing-
Headed North thru Killdeer canyon to the windy land of nothingness to become shore scum. Cloudy and spitting raindrops to start was perfect. Got 2 eyes missed 3-4 (not sure why), missed 3 bobos 1 was a solid 6-7lbs.

Moved a little and it was on. Whenever the wind and clouds and rain picked up the fishing picked up. Ended the day with 16 walleyes and 9 bobos. So I was 25 for 40. Not a bad day. All except 1bow and 4 eyes were on burning metal.
Those dry fly cuttys are fun but these things hit like freight trains. I can actually feel my wrist this morning!:D

Gonna be a good day!


Got many of these-


My new Cudgel is 24" long-


This one went 5.88 lbs. Filled my limit-


A nice one.

I like the wooden fish whacker. I bought my dad a "priest" online. I think they call them that 'cause your giving the fish its right of passage.

It all depends. Also depends on depth, weed hight, aggression level,( the fishes', not mine):D

These fish are eating bugs in the weeds so it needs to be burned right above the weeds to get thier attention. Many times fish are eating crayfish dead on the bottom so you must place the lure on the bottom and imitate a crayfish.

Then of course there is color selection-that can vary by the miute it seems some days-

Then is lure weight which is dependent on your rod/reel/ line setup and water depth, wind/ current.

Then is lure shape dependent on forage species.

I could go on for hours-

Excellent report as per usual. You got me fishing up there years ago so many thanks. Troutskis are big and fat this year you ever flail at em up there? Do you think the mile inlet is fishing good now? Figure browns may be staging
