We are in 72 and are really pumped. I watched the moose calling video again last night and just can't wait to be out there. Good Luck and Be Safe!

89B,

Where you guys staying? We'll be at Lake Jeanette campground. Look around for the black suburban and Prowler camper.

good luck to all of you that are going this year. it looks like they should be in full rut. calling should be great if the wind stays calm.

I may be staying at a bunkhouse near the moose loop road, but I'm still waiting on a confirmation. If that doesn't work out, I may be staying at the same campground as you, or the Echo Lake campground. If that doesn't work out, then I'm just camping out in the back of my truck on one of the turn-offs...a blue Dodge Dakota with a black topper and the Ruger stickers on the side. It's all good to me. grin.gif If I see you, I'll stop by and maybe we can share a coffee, pop, or beer and compare notes.

We hunted Zone 28 Saturday with no luck. Lots of wind made for difficult calling. We managed to call in a couple timber wolfs but that was it. Pull out today because of the rain. Anyone have any luck?

I just spoke with my roommate. He got around a 900 lb. bull out of zone 21 today around noon.

BigDrift,

Did you guys get one? I never made it to your campsite...was always coming out in the dark and was too tired and hungry, so I'd head right for the sleeping quarters. Hope you had luck. I saw a massive bull (I keep calling it a "postcard bull" to my friends) on the first Tuesday and ended up with a small bull on the second Saturday. After packing out the meat, I am glad it was a small one. wink.gif

Thanks benelli_dude for the tips! grin.gif

If you are talking about whoever was driving the white truck from Cook, I'm not sure. I never saw him. I know I heard him calling for a few days in a row and I saw his truck parked at the same clearing this past Sunday, so I'm guessing that guy didn't get one yet. I saw a lot of sign in that Lake Jeanette clearing I was hunting when you saw me, and I even saw the back-end of one that first Monday in there, but I moved closer to the other end of the zone. No hunters down there. That's where I got mine. The guy from Melrose that I met at the place I rented out was coming back this week, so I know he didn't get one yet.

Good job!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
