Island Lake Gold Report 8/4

7 posts in this topic

It wasn't an all out day of fishing. Just a couple hours on the water with Pete and then some relaxation time with friends and family at the cabin.

The report is much the same as my last Island Lake Report

22' of water trolling spinners w/ crawlers. Whats strange to me is to have to 14-15"ers in among the larger eyes, not that I'm complaining.

Island has put out some very quality eyes for me this summer.

This one was quickly photographed and Released, none worse for wear. Note the ragged tail, no doubt shes spawned a few times.

This was a mid day bite, I did get a report of those perfect eaters(15") coming from 5' of water in the evening, again with spinners. Just goes to show theres more then one way to get the Gold from Island.

Its the "in" thing! Krammer has one just like it, so I know its in fashion.

Made from nylon, its a very cool shirt in the hot sun.

2 weekends ago I was wearing it also(very hot out), throw it in the lake and put it back on, instant goose bumps!

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
