Was wondering the same thing. Headed over this weekend, for crappie and walleye. Any info? Water temp?

We’ll be staying at Finn-n-Feather resort right across the lake from the bridge, so I will have to give it a try. Thanks!!
Our news report (in Iowa) said that area is near peak (whatever that means).
I would like to thank all of you for your help again. Our family is really looking forward to heading north for the weekend.
What time do you open the bait shop, and now that we are closer, is the bite any good right now. We’ll take anything…crappie, walleye, bluegill, whatever is going good. (gotta keep the kids interested.) Do you stock flicker shads? I can’t find any around here and have heard from other guys also that this is still the hot ticket. Thanks again, and we’ll probably see you this weekend.
By the way, I’m new to the lake, and the Mississippi. What is the can line? Is this reference to the channel bouys?
Thanks for the information. It’s not the lake I’m set on, it’s the walleye/sauger. I would love to get some eaters, and let the kids catch a few. Maybe I can sit near the dam with the kids, and hit the lake later if I get out with one of the guys without kids. I really just can’t wait to get on the water. We were in Bemidji in august and did really well on the walleye, but they just don’t make ’em here in Iowa like they do up there!!
Just curious where the best place to put in would be? Is there a public access in Red Wing, or should we drive to Lake City? And, is the head of the lake considered directly below the dam, or downstream from there where the water opens up?
Thanks for the tips guys, and yes, my wife is an excellent cook, so Dean, name your price for up to the minute conditions and your belly will be full!!
