 Went out to Douglas Bay today and fished for a few hours.  Fished 25-45 FOW looking for walleyes.  Had a few bites and lost one at the boat, but otherwise a very slow day.  We used spinners and jigged.  It got pretty windy and it got hard to move around.  Looking forward to ice fishing.

Also, I launched from Church of the Cross and left my IPad on the back of my truck.  If anyone see's it, can you message me?  I think it fell off somewhere from the ramp to somewhere in Garrison.  It is in a black case.

thanks!

Fished the big water yesterday.  The wind made it a real challenge but the fish were bighting.  back trolled into the waves with a tiller. Caught fish in 20 feet out to 30 feet, didn't seem to matter as long as you were in that range.  Crawlers on bottom bouncers seemed to work best with a few fish caught on leeches.  Very aggressive bite. No minnow bite.  We were soaked head to toe but we got our limit.

Nothing much to report 1 walleye.  Only walleye caught was in 15 fow on a spinner.  Found a ton of fish suspended in 40 feet of water about 20-30 feet  down.  Did not catch a single one of them though.
