A nice evening on Independence

4 posts in this topic

My son, and I fished Indy for the first time yesterday afternoon, and evening. We mainly fished around the island throwing everything we had at the muskys, bucktails, topwaters, Suicks, Believers etc. Saw many boils, and a 36" or so jump, but no takers. Water temp was around 67*.

It was still a good evening of quality time in the boat, and you can't beat that!

hey midex!

I was also out on Indep. yesterday....although we fished the morning hours until about 3:00. Had 2 musky followups but no takers. One was fairly thick..possibly a 45"? Caught a few small bass on plastics. Was in the Red old school Lund. Were you possible the folks in the blue boat? smile.gif

Hey Magic!

Glad to hear that you had a couple of follows! We launched around 4:45pm or so, and off the lake around 9pm. We have a tan/black Crestliner. Maybe we'll see ya out there sometime soon!

Good luck!

I think I talked to you out there behind the island, we didn't get one either. Thought for sure those fish would be moving with that storm coming, oh well.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
