I was up last weekend and we hit 'em hard. And we did move till we found em. Moved all night Thurs (until the youngster locked the keys in the truck ~ 8pm) ended up breaking a window while trying to pick the lock to get back in, only got in on the end of the bite that night with a few fish since we started fishing again about 10pm. Fri we found em in the same spot and couldn't keep our lines in the water. Went out of West Winds in about 12' of water. If you want some more info shoot me an email asap as I might be up there tomorrow night.

I am coming up for the 2nd time of Friday and Saturday night. I tried once last year and caught one crappie. I am bringing my Dad (who is 75) to get his rod bent hopefully on some big crappies. We could also use any kind of help on where to drive on and how far out to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can direct emails to me at turk802@yahoo.com.
Thanks!!

We just got back,and man did we hammer them!There is a few nasty spots out there,so I would advise you to check in at the bait shop at Westwind to get directions.They know where to get on the fish.We Only fished in the evening,at 6 oclock or so.If you don't catch a few within 30 min,MOVE!We moved 3 times,within 100 yards.And bang,Nonstop hogs.Another trick I,ve found,is when your bobber goes under a quarter inch,RIP IT IN THEM.If you let them take it too long,you'll miss every one of them.Good luck and be sure to meet the infamous Kelly-P,that alone is worth the trip in my mind(at least whats left of it after this weekend)
Keep setting hook! Dave

This reply is to the people that don't have much experience on URL.First you need to be fishing about a foot and a half off bottom to 2 feet.WE have done well from about 6:00pm till 10:00pm.Keep glowing those jigs!!!!If you find fish i recommend glowing every 3 minutes or after every slab pulled up..We have been fishing the south end...Green Demons...Head out about a mile.......Good luck to all....Hope you Kill'em....

Where to go?... Just go straight out of WestWind and keep going out until you reach a big wall of ice. Now don't follow any tracks that go right into that ridge, that didn't work for anyone who tried it. wink.gif
Make sure and fish near that if you can and still be alone. Alone is the key. If it is to crowded by the ridge, find the bridge and cross. Make sure it is still safe (west wind should know) and keep going after the ridge until you shake the crowd. Solo?, start hole poppin' and then you'll be bobber rockin'. smile.gif Big bodie of water, find a lonely spot and try it. I would say maybe a 20 minute time limit (after dark that is) and if none by 20 minutes, move. Good luck.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      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.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.
