      well we were unable to secure a boat but we are fishing from the dock and kayaks. So far, one walleye, one white bass, and two catfish. Having a great time but feel ...more we could be slaying them if we had a boat.Tight lines!

      Ric I have caught a few out front of the beach in 17 feet of water and work your way NE until you go around I think it’s called cranberry point.
