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.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
