Now that it's July, what kind of success has everyone been experiencing all around Sheildsville. We were out on French lake today and the action was real slow. Lots of boating activity and even had the opportunity to chat with the 3 C/O that were out.

I can't speak for the Shieldsvillle area as I live and fish the Mankato area lakes, but around here I've been finding success on eyes' with a crawler harness/ bottom bounce presentation in 10-15 fow during low light periods. During the day the sheepies take over.

If you want to see hundreds of dead carp floating along shore and out in the lake head on over to the stinky lake elysian.

Northerns and Sheepheads are biting on jig / minnow combos in 10-12 feet.

      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

      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!
