No, not as of late.

The lake is a great kids fishing lake. A ton of small-med. sunnies and small crappies. Once and awhile a small hammer handle.

The last time I was there, the kids had a blast.

We have had luck with worms, corn and crappies minnows. The middle east side and north end by bridge rail is some of the better spots. The north end is the only area I have seen northerns caught.

Are you talking about the little Island lake off of 694? If so I believe it is a nice little lake to get out on you kayak and fish. Many panfish, bass, pike, and the occassion walleye. As stated most panfish are small but the crappie population can put out some good year classes.

Very small lake so rarely do you have to deal with boat traffic. I have not honestly spent a great deal of time on that body of water. A little in the early spring of late fall to test equipment or to get my kayak wet

If you can get out, there are some really nice bass in it and it is also stocked with muskies. The best thing for the kids though is they can run around, have lots of room and even use the playground. My grandkids love it, and if the bass hits while the small pannies are biting the kids have a blast.

      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.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
