Jonah,

How would we contact your father? (I may be interested too...) You can post here or send to my email address (you should still have it).

Thanks!

I'd recommend Dick Winter. I've used his services on a couple of occasions. I don't know that you'll find anyone who knows that area better.

I would give Jason Durham a call. He has lived in the area his whole life, and he is a great guy to go fishing with.

Brad and Jonah (and everybody else that posts), it would be very helpful to us "out-of-towners" if you could some how post the phone number or email address or HOW to contact your recommended guides. Yellow Pages? They also work at ____ (i.e. Delaney's, Northern, etc.).

Anything would help.

THANKS!

Bob,

Hows it going? Jason has a flyer up in Delaneys, I am not sure what his contact info is off the top of my head here but another thing you could do is post to him on this website, he comes on this site all the time. So there is a start and Ii will see what other info I can get for you.

Thanks Brad. Will be there for a week (9/9-16) and am HOPING that I won't NEED a guide. wink.gif

But, if it's SLOW for the first few days, I may start looking for some help!! I'll keep Jason and Jonah's dad (Dick) in mind.

<29 days and counting!!>

i would defiantly recommend Jason Durham. He is a great guy and a phenominal fisherman, earlier this year he put me and my brother and cousin on five eyes all about 5 lbs in a very short period of time. He knows his stuff... Its a great experience that ill always remember

      Good reports guys.   We were up Wednesday to Sunday.   I second you on the weather, rain and wind got old.  Not to mention bugs were terrible.  No see ums bothered us the most.      For us luckily the fishing was great.   Limited on bows and Lakers.   Had several stellar meals too.

      Hi, I'm looking for a fresh report from the North end.  Thanks!

      Refresh my memory... If we just go into Trout Lake for the day, we are not required to get a permit in advance. We just fill out the form at the portage. Is that correct?
    • Avid Angler
      Yeah that is the one.

      Thanks for the information!  Whenever I'm moving, I use a ram mount to secure my bow mount. I just got the Ulterra this spring.  I had a Terova on my last boat. I was going across the lake in 3 footers and the locking mechanism failed and the motor deployed. Ever since then, I secure it for a piece of mind.

      One of my trolling motor batteries decided to take a crap on me so it didn't have enough power to go into the wind so  that made it tough...we tried a few drifts in areas that looked good for eyes, but didn't pan out....We went to a different spot and started catching nice sized gills on the rigs so we decided to just say screw walleyes and go for gills (I could tell the gf wasn't digging the 20mph wind in the face lol). So we went to a spot I've fished in the winter and ended up catching a 20,24"...We caught them not to long before we left right in the same area.... I've never fished it in the summer before so I wasn't expecting much...The look on my gfs face when she caught the 24 was priceless though so I was happy.

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.
