I was up there last weekend and the bite was good...I wont get into too much detail but we were fishing weed beds near deep water. Dark color bucktails and reefhogs were working best. As for the report fri we had 6 follows and landed a 53"er (I will post pics when I download them) and sat we had 9 follows but only a 42"er in the boat! Both are still swiming for you to catch!

53"er Nice fish. i would love to see the pic. I have not made it up there yet but pics help. 15 follows in two days is great to hear. Would have been nice to land more fish, That is Muskie Fishing. Was there any size to the other fish?

Didn't seem active yesterday...2 short strikes on topwater over weeds and nothing else. Fished on the south end from about 5:30pm until 1am...weeds, rocks, deep, shallow. We'll get 'em next time I guess. : )

I started out Thursday looking for carp in the shallows with my bow. Nothing doing, so started fishing the weedline in Garrison Bay for muskies. Had one very violent strike, but didn't hook up....not sure what it was. Later, caught a nice 29 inch walleye on a bucktail. Caught a few smallies too, but no muskies. Bugs were tolerable after dark. Looking forward to July...

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
