I fished White bear on Wed 6am to 2pm. Had one muskie on (around 40ish) for a few quick seconds and then she wanted to see how high she could jump!!!!

I moved a few more fish after that. All my action came in a 15 minute window.

So far in the metro this year it seems to be real short feeding windows.

Anybody having any luck with the Tigers yet?

I caught one bass fishing on Bald Eagle 2 weeks ago! On a spinnerbait... at least 40".... didn't have a net... so didn't get it in the boat.

The man with a 40" BASS - MUST BE A WORLD RECORD! haha, right there out of Bald Eagle. Would have been a great headliner. So was it a Musky? or a 20" bass?

I went on Sunday to try to get anything out of Bald Eagle - I did not find any 'skis but I did find several northerns and bass, all in the north end of the lake by the big set of private docks. Nothing worth noting, though...bit was really slow unless you were using worms, and then it was mainly sunnies and crappies biting.

On another note, I've never seen a launch as busy and packed as what I saw yesterday - boats 9-12 deep waiting to launch/get off. However, I do have to say everyone was really nice and quick about getting their boats in and out!

I beg to differ on the launch at Hairy Sparrow (Bald Eagle) on Sunday. We all know father's day is going to be the day for the amateurs at the ramp. I wasn't expecting to see much that impressed me there, but one that baffled me was a guy with his wife and 4 kids. Backs the ski boat into the water, gets it off the trailer, his wife holds the front of the boat while the 4 kids jump in, in the meentime, the back of the boat swings around. This blocked the other ramp, the boat swung all the way around so it was basically backwards on the trailer. Then he just moved it to the end of the dock so it was perpendicular, gets out and goes to park the truck, still blocking one of the two ramps.

I think from now on, if a person is having trouble, I might go and help them out and offer them some tips. We should all think about this and maybe it will relieve some of the stress at the ramp by helping rather than getting frustrated.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
