Bass Fishing has been great. There was a bass fishing tourney on Saturday on Fish Hook Lake. The first place team had a five fish limit, weighing 20+ lbs. The wind was tuff that day, but still lots of fish.

Sounds good! I'll be up on Eagle, Island and Potato this weekend. I'm guessing the best bite for LM will be deep, can anyone confirm that?

I've just added a pictire with my son and I. We caught these bass in about two hours. We brought them back to shore for a picture and then let them go. Caught them in 10feet of water, on jig worm.

Jig worm fished on the weed edge is a very effectivve way of catch lots of bass on the hook, it is also the way i caught my largest fish hook largemouth at just over 21" IN POST COLD FRONT conditions. the 4" gulp turtle back worm is a very good choice in both junebug and black. also a very good way to catch pressured walleyes.

Hey Jonah,

hows it going I was just wondering if you ever get out throwing some topwater for some lm bass. I know its not like seeing that big explosion from a muskie but it is still a very good time. I get my bro archery1 out there from time to time. If you ever want to go out maybe you can give me and my bro some pointers on catching some eyes on Potato, before you go back to school. I will stop in to Northern here next weekend if you are working, shoot the (Contact Us Please) alittle bit.

Just got back from God's country yesterday. I fished mostly on Eagle because the water was so low that I could barely get my boat through the channels. I've never seen it that low.

The bass and crappie fishing was very slow. I tried everything and every depth. It didn't help that a high pressure system moved through Friday night.

The northerns bit good on Monday.

We never tried for walleyes because I had heard that bite was even worse.

Hopefully things will improve by Labor Day wknd.

I have tried fishing eagle before with no luck, what are you using? I have very good luck on Potato, I use a scum frog in the pads and reeds and that usually produces very well. Lately I have been getting them right on the pad or reed line. I will be up this weekend I will let you know how the bass fishin goes.

      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.

      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.

      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
