great fish. I was busting my hump with no results until the lakes started to heat up for me last weekend. Good fishing in other lakes can be good for the busy lakes up there, but for you, I hope it doesn;t get too busy on your lake.

Great catches.

I hope you didn't delete the post due to people criticzing for the verticle hold.

Some people jsut always want to put their 2 cents in, and it is usually negative. We would be here all day if we argued about what is bad for a fish or not.

Keep up the good work and holdem how you want, with care. Some say a fish gets hurt by the battle more than anything. DO we now all have to quit.

Appreciate your response and private message,...fished "another" lake this afternoon and did extremely well. Longest musky to date but not as beefy as you might expect for the length. Expect this pattern might continue awhile yet.

Been fishing up here since 1968 and hard at it several weeks each summer since HS graduation in 81. Something to learn every time out.

Good idea to delete post, anytime someone mentions a specific lake it can get too much pressure in a short time. From the picture a guy could even tell the location on the lake. Don't fish for muskies so do not need to worry about me.

I imagine the people that complain are the people who are never able to catch any fish in the first place. It takes intelligence and fishing experience to identify a Musky pattern, and you sir appear to have the necessary skill. I saw the photos before the delete and anyone who thinks it was 2 pics of the same fish couldn't tell a Musky from a Perch. A fish can be held in the vertical hold without undue stress. It's the fight that stresses the fish. 15 seconds out of the water for a picture and measurments, and the proper revival process means no harm, no foul. Good Job, CopterJohn!

Raptor nice personal attack! So there is a difference between a Muskie and Perch, thanks I did not know.

Don't take comments so seriously. I saw both pics, first fish was covered with blood and sky line was different.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      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!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      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.
