I would have to say West Wind just because the fact that i just got back from renting a sleeper from them over the weekend and not only did we catch about 75 walleyes a day once we knew that we wouldn’t have a problem catching them we wanted to take are portables out and look for some crappies but did not know where to start looking. After talking to Scott the guy from the West wind crew that made sure we were doing ok sent us to a spot about 5 miles out we managed to run into 5 real nice crappies. Not only that you can run right in to the bar for food and drinks when ever you want.

From what I hear everyone that guides up there works hard to keep their people happy. I know they dont let the grumpy post go through but I am sure you will be in good hands with an experienced vet of the lake. they all want you to catch fish. I will still go to west winds or Hillmans for the NEW BBQ!! I will be there on the 15-18 of Feb for the second run of the year. First time marked alot of fish but hadnt heard of the jigging...dead stick gig. Put it this way I jigged my [PoorWordUsage] off and almost got goofy staring at that Vexilar so intensely just to see them swim away to the next door neighbor to grab that bait that is not jigging. I am going to fish my [PoorWordUsage] off this time. Tanks of auger gas. I will find me some nice craps.......I pray the weather allows it.

I would say that with John's and Kelly P's knowledge of the lake make them #1 in my book. I have rented from 3 different guide/sleeper rentals and by far both my wife and I feel you get the best from Kelly and John!! Anytime up there when the fish are on it is great. I love waking up and wondering where the night went as I was up pulling in Rattle Reels all night long!!

I agree I have rented from Kelly and Patsy for about 6 years now. I have enjoyed every trip I have taken up to URL. They have always shown me and my buddies a great time. I always catch my limit and help my friends out with theirs. Their houses are always ready and waiting for you to come and fish. Get ahold of them early because you won't get a house because they will be rented for the season. They also rent them out during the open water season I think.Anyway I have my trip planned for later in Feb I can't wait. One of these times I need to hit shore to maybe toss back a couple with the gang at a local establishment. grin.gif

      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.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
