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.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.

      Funny you say that, Bassthumb.  The slow bite under our house was last week...my dad was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week and he lost count of how many fish they caught.  We've been on a very inconsistent bite this year, though...every time we think about moving the house, we have a day or two of especially good bite before it slows down again.
