      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Two Island lake?

Recommended Posts

riversmallmouth35

I will be heading up to Two island this weekend and was hoping to get some smallmouth. Are there fish still up shallow and what has been working good lately.

We also might go to crescent lake and was wondering how the fishing is on the lake. I have never fished it before and would like to give it a try.

I am also hoping on picking blueberries. Is the blueberry season still going or is it done?

Thanks for any help.

Two Island and Crescent are almost identicle...size, clarity, structure, fishing, etc. Both lakes are excellent bass producers. This time of year you might find a few small ones along the shallows, but I think the bigger ones will be more concentrated on main lake structure. I've always done best with perch colored crankbaits and white power grubs. Be careful boating on these lakes, the rocks can come up out of nowhere. Somewhere on the bottom of crescent rest my dad's lower unit.

Picked Blueberries on the roadside near Cresent yesterday, Aug 5th. You won't find alot, but enough for you pancakes or cereal. We picked about a quart between us in an hour or so. We were at Brule Lake last week, Bass were on the rocks in 8-10', anything with a worm on it seemed to work.

I agree with JB. Watch the first Island on your left coming out of the boat launch as there is a poin that sticks way out. Looking out onto the lake the first island you see past the point there is alot of reef to the left of it so stay west of it. Best advice is go slow watch for deadheads and be cautious out there. I have been running that lake for 20 years and took out my skeg and prop this year. Never be overconfident, like I used to be! There is some nice main lake structure as well as some deeper points that can produce well. Be careful anytime you are going between islands as well. My advice is get a good map, go slowly, plot a trail with your gps if you have one and then go out and have fun. Also, another word of caution, there are deadheads that float around on the lake just below the surface that can be a hazard so.........again, go slow, your lower unit depends on it!

      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.
