Was out there last night for a club tournament. The lake itself is in bad shape. There is alot of top water weeds that is killing the fishing. For myself, and most of everyone else, we found all our fish still up in the shallows. We were fishing alot of pads with jigs, and had alot of luck. Monster fish, with a few smaller ones. All the other gus that fish deep, ended up with 2-3 fish for there bag.

We fished this lake earlier last year, and looking at it this year, man that lake gets out of control with the muck on the top.

I noticed there was a league out there last night. When you say monster fish how big are you talking?

The weeds are getting bad. I guess the head guy of the lake association doesn't think that the weeds are that bad. And he is not listening to anyone else that lives on the lake from what I hear. But something needs to be done regarding the weeds. Did you see a lot of dead fish? Or how do you know that the weeds are killing the fish?

Also, What kind of jigs do you use that are weedless for the shallows like that?

All i have to say is that guy must be sick, becuase that lake is horrible, and there needs to be something done to it to make it where it belongs. I remember when this lake was the bomb, and now going to it last night, was horrible.

I agree. I think the only way something will get done is if the homeowners get the DNR involved. If the lake association is not willing people will have to bypass them and go to the DNR I guess.

well i can tell you this. the lake is getting out of hand, and something needs to be done before it gets way out of hand. That is a great fishery, and i would hate to see it go bad.

      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.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      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

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
