I finally got out last night. Pretty slow, just a couple of hammer handles.

I arrived at the Ramsey ramp about 8:00 pm. A couple rigs going in and out. I was next in line taking off the back straps on the boat when the @@*%&* behind me with a big ski boat is in a hurry and pulls around me. I was ready 30 seconds later and both spot were full. He backs his boat in the water when a spot opens, but donesn't launch. NOOOooo..he gets out walks in front of his truck and starts hollering for his buddies to hurry up who are somewhere down the parking lot. While this is happening I'm sitting next in line waiting for him. He must have had his daddy's boat. Big ugly colored Nautilus with the ski bridge.

Anyway I get out start fishing Ordway and here come two girls on a jetski racing down the markers screaming like the little girls that they are. You could hear them all over the lake.

I believe I'll launch at dark next time. Anyone else out last night. I stayed out until about 11:00.

Yeah was out last night also. Launched at 7:00 at the same beach. Done at 1:30. We caught 4 nice ones. Still a long time for 3 guys. Lindy and casting raps.

Four nice ones? Walleye or muskies?

Was out Sat morn, fishing bass. Picked up about a dozen LMB and one nice fat 16-17" smallie. Some small pike mixed in, and one big muskie hit a fatrap, but missed.

Bass came on drop shot with brown worm, and a few on texas rig, and two on cranks. I guess two came on tubes as well. I missed a few due to being on phoen (what (Contact Us Please) talks on phone when fishing?.?.?...) Right on weed edge, better on deeper drops.

Hey twood, if you don't mind telling, what is the presentation you use on white bear this time of the year? My son is FINALLY into walleye fishing (not for the lack of my trying) and we've talked about hitting white bear in the near future. Also, I'm planning on doing some fall fishing this year. Is it pretty much a jig and a minnow on white bear during the late fish? Thank you much. WHOOPS! Just went back and reread, lindy and casting raps... I missed that the first time. Did either the lindy's or raps out-perform the other? Thanks again

Went out 8/16 from 8:30-11:30...really really slow, missed a couple of bites, but nothing happening at all. Tried jigging fatheads and trolling/casting some cranks, just no luck.

Don't enjoy WBL or read about much success in the summer but it is my favorite metro WINTER lake for walleyes! Usually the only one on the lake at 2 AM when the biggum's are feeding. Heck, usually the only one on the lake after 8 pm. Won't be long!

Thats great to hear...I'm new to the N.E. metro, just moved from Eden Prairie to Roseville. I'm an ice fishing nut and looking for ice fishing buddies in the area.

      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.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.
    • going4it
      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
