I've only been on Pine Lake twice and didn't fish either time... if you canoe over to little caribou or caribou at the west end - those lakes are pretty good for fishing, including lots of eating size walleye on little caribou. It's a long paddle though, especially if its raining or a west wind..

I know a couple of guys who go up there once or twice a year. They catch BIG walleyes. I have never actually been there, but have seen the pictures.

From my understanding, pine lake is very large, deep and clear. Making walleye fishing difficult. You will want a good conture map and a depth finder. There are some reefs virtually in the middle of the lake, fish these reefs with lighted bobbers and leeches in the evenings. Let us know how you do.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
