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!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      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.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      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
    • LBerquist
      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
