Long Tonight

3 posts in this topic

Guided on Long tonight for a father and his two boys (8 and 11). Both boys caught their first walleyes as well as a pile of nice bass. We caught all are fish tonight on crawlers in 15 to 17 feet of water. I worked wind swept inside turns all evening, the bite was pretty good and i think may have got a few boys hooked on the outdoors which is a definite plus for the sport. Jonah

Well, as the father mentioned in Jonah's post, let me start by saying that Jonah is an awesome guide! Me and my two oldest boys (I left the 5 yr old back at the cabin with my wife) had a great time that night. Better yet, we were able to take the knowledge gained that night and use it the rest of the week to have even more success on Long Lake. My oldest son pulled in a 19" smallmouth later in the week.

Jonah is also right -- he helped get my boys totally hooked on fishing. They have "demanded" I trade in my 18' runabout for a fishing boat!

Thanks again Jonah!

      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.

      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
