loadmaster, i have only been on the water up there one time. the only thing i can offer would be the same thing they are telling us on here. current reports are the best bet. sounds like the dawg did well. i think i'm going up there next weekend. i have 4 days off(fri-mon)work on tuesday. i hope to make it up at least one day, maybe drag the camper up, and close the w.w. what day/days do you have off? i like the drift fishing til you locate fish. i just hope the gail force winds hold out and the weather is bearable. maybe i'll bring my pontoon, it has railings to keep me from falling out of the boat smile.gif maybe we could work together and catch all the fish? can't do any worse than my smelt trips hehehe. three trips to duluth. twice i had to get wet for nothing, and the time i didn't even get in the water i limited out!(thanks surface)
email me and i'll keep in touch with you.later--------jigglestick---------

Jiggle...Are the railings on the pontoon high enough to keep the auger in when you hit that rogue wave? What's your 1st weeknd in June looking like? Looks like Paul and I will be heading up that way then. Give me a call I feel a game plan being developed over a cold one! Talk to you soon!

Good Luck! Rip some Lips!

Looks a goer for next weekend. ST checkout my e-mail for the tele # will mail jigglestick with it also I am off Fri-Mon How about a thur late leaving time or super early fri. Whoops I lost ST Address 525-5782. Since I am not a crusher I do not have a pontoon and a camper always have the back of the truck/shell and a cot. What time does the WW close and do they have rooms or is it first booth first come. I hope keely was refering to the ice conditions for next weekend and not the participants.

The day started out cold and windy and a little rough. Oh and we closed WW thur. night so it was a little rough in more then one way. We were good so no stories that I can remember any way.
Winds died down to a nice breeeze and warmed up. I got a combination sunbrun wind chapped.
Most everyone is fishing 5' of water along the shore. Not a lot of action there so we headed to 8.5 ft off the first ditch NE of Hudec's We marked fish 6' down so we drifted with a white jig and minnow 7' below a bobber. I guess when you have boats move in on you it's a form of flattery so we didnt get to worked up about that. smile.gif We just moved to be alone and wasnt long till we were in fish again. Got off the lake at 6 pm heavy with crappies. Great trip and meet Albatros at WW,hi smile.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

      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.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you

      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.
