P.P.,

How was the trip friday with the Muskie master Eric Jensen - of Jensen's Fish Hunts?

I was thinking of you friday when i was wetting a line on the Croix. I hope you got a giant, knowing you if you did - I beleive the "madness of muskies" would surely afflict you!!!

Keep on Truckin'

Turk,
P.P. will respond, but I'll throw my 2 cents in. Quality hunt with a quality guide. Contacted 4 BIG FISH. Couldn't get a hook in them though. Saw 2 fish that were probably in the 30# class. We worked hard and learned a ton!! Eric said you're afraid of getting "bit" by the muskie bug. It's a terrible sickness.
We had a great trip. We'll get out with you for the 'eyes and hit Eric up for the 'skies next year for sure. Thanks for the tip on hiring Eric. BTW, the Jack of Diamonds in Trego was awesome. Ask P.P. for details.
If we have a boat next year you should come up. You and Eric and me and P.P.
You'll get "bit" for sure.

Turk,

We had a great time on and off the water, saw my first Musky. The girl followed my new Black bucktail up to the boat at about 3 to 4 feet deep. The top of her head was a little 10" wide and shocked me so BAD I jerked my bait right out of the water. Eric saw her and yelled get it back in there and start to figure eight. Well I wont forget that for a long time and hopefully I'll never make that mistake again. Steve and I will be at my favorite spot on sunday the 22nd go for the wolves.


Keep your line tight, P.P.

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.
