Swamp: Just got back from there. Not many houses real close to Pine anymore, most have headed deeper to the mud. Not saying that there are no houses there, but certainly no where near the number as a couple of weeks ago. We were out in 33' about 8miles, and there were houses past us. Good luck and hang on.

My wife and I stayed w/ Bayview Lodge and rented a house from them on 01-16-08. We were about 6 miles out from Pine Island in 33-34' of water. We ended up catching about 40 and kept 11 saugers, 5 walleyes, and a football of a perch. Our best luck was on crappie sized demon jigs, glow/pink and glow/green being best with shiners. I also had good luck on a small orange/yellow northland forage minnow spoon with a whole shiner. I'd leave that on the bottom and carefully lift it every once in while. Usually there'd be a fish on it. The gal at the bait shop said bubble gum glow was good too, and we did catch a couple on that colored jig. Action was slow, but steady, till about 2pm and then it got tough! We had our 14 by 2 and were talking about getting back to the resort by 4 and ended up staying till 5pm to put our last 2 in the bucket....typical!!! From other's we talked to that night, it sounded like everyone caught fish and the action slowed in the afternoon. Looking forward to my early March trip w/ the guys from work!

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
