    During a calm week of light winds and bright sun, we had to use a variety of techniques to find active fish. Biggest regret was not to bring minnows on our camping trip. Instead, we had wimpy leeches (jumbo's were scarce to non-existent in MN apparently) and crawlers. We used a minnow trap and caught about a dozen small to medium blunt-nose minnows at our campsite. We marked a lot of fish on steep ledges in 28-37 ft. A jig and minnow enticed several to strike, but it was not hot and heavy. The drop shot with crawler and a jig and crawler also worked on occasion. Jigging raps also caught fish. Fish bigger than 15 in were scarce and we caught a ton of really tiny walleye. We marked clouds of bait fish all over the place and many walleye we cleaned had minnows/small perch in their stomach. Smallmouth were very difficult to find despite scanning reefs and casting shorelines with tubes, ned rigs, and crank baits.
