I caught one a few weeks ago in front of Barkers Island Hotel on a bomber. It totally sunk my board into the depths. I was fishing in the fog so it was sort of erie.

Got it to the side of the boat and my board came up off the bottom. Once I got the fish to the side of the boat I was disapointed to see it was a 49-50" ski. Oh well I popped the hooks out with the fish still in the water and let her go back to doing her thing. Thats the only nice one I have seen this year. Did catch a few dinkers up river trolling spinners.

Now that the season is getting rolling for them I think its time I start trying out Cheffreys "Musky Fingers" recipe. tongue.gifwink.gif

Ya I know but they taste so much better than a ski. At least they taste better than the ones over 40". wink.gif

The Airport flats was full of ski's again on Sunday night. Caught 3 more on the same bomber. The one particular bomber I was catching them on has been retired to the back of the stick box for a long long time. grin.gif

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
