Brief Report

7 posts in this topic

Fished the East end for a few hours midday on Sunday. Was pleasantly surprised at some decent fishing..Got 12 eyes between 15 and 22". Kept 3 16" clones for dinner. All fish were caught on a windblown rock hump. We used 3 way spinner rigs w/hammered gold spinners and crawlers. Quite a few mayflies still around but fish didn't seem to mind..

Shhhhhh! Small metallic color spinners during mayflies..... it's a secret. Don't tell!

That's funny because I gleaned the spinner trick from someone looking for the "infiltrator" spinner kits...Ended up buying some and have really been getting good results with them...Lost quite a few on hungry rocks though...Managed to land a white plastic lawn chair on one too... grin.gif

Are you going to have that mounted or do a fiberglass reproduction?

Left it at my buddies cabin for an "outside mount"...Figured it didn't have many good spawning years left so I kept it. It put up a battle in big waves but wasn't deserving of release IMO.... grin.gif

      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!!!

      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..
    • 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

      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.
