That's a pretty good lake to start with. I go up there every year in early june and always slaughter the bass...now that it's later in the year they're probably gonna be pushed out from shore a little bit...two island has lot's of main lake structure in the form of rock bars and sunken islands though. I caught all my bass in the shallows inbetween all the islands, but now if you can find deeper channels inbetween the islands that would be a good bet too. 3" power grubs were the ticket, but anything perch colored would be good too. Nearby devil track lake is good too, same tackle will catch all the bass you'll want there. Both lakes have good numbers of eater size 'eyes.

Just troll a worm harness with a leech or a crawler. You won't be able to shake the bass of your line. Two Island is your best bet at catching a trophy. You just might catch some walleyes as well.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
