the last 2 years have been the best smelt runs since the 1970's. I'll be out next weekend dipping the Lester or Dragging a seine on Park Point.

This is Uniform Kilo Echo Sierra

Good Luck

Out.

hey tubejig,good to here you have had some luck on those little silver ones,i havent done that on the north shore for a while,when we would go we didnt do to well 5 gallon pail maybe at the best.i guess i am spoiled though after seeing tons at 1 time on the boats it takes a lot these days. not many people get to see them kinds of #'s we did on the south shore by ashland we had the big pond nets out and would get 10 tons out of 1 net at a time on a good night,but hey it's all about having fun those days were a lot of work but i miss it. i was just wondering how the comeback of the lake trout and the decreased stocking of the king's has affectted the smelt are they on the rise or kinda about the same? good talking with you, later bruce grin.gif

      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

      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.

      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.
