Well here it is...Hooked up with a couple FMer's staying at fishmeisters cabin and went fishing for six hours on Tuesday. It went well, unfortunately we were constantly on the chase for some bigger fish. Found two good spots, one of which was loaded with 'eyes where a mud line met up with the rock, all the fish there were at biggest 12"-12 1/4" went out to another spot on an Island and Northlander hooked up with a nice 20-21" Moved and graphed a couple more spots with nothing on them, and went out into sand bay, where we found some 'eyes, but again small, with the exception of a couple.

That evening I went out with my dad after some crappies, we ended up catching and releasing 20-25 decent crappies, with a couple around 12" and two pushing 14". Found the fish in 30' of water, Northland Slupies were working best.

Wednesday 8-16, didn't make it out to Fishmeisters cabin in time to fish with Steve and Randy, I ended up going after crappies in Redgut, found a large school and ended up keeping my 10 with a combined weight on almost 16lbs!! A few fish pushed two, with the average being 1 1/2 lbs. Found them in 26-32' feet of water suspended four to sixteen feet off bottom.

Good Luck Fishing Everyone!!! grin.gif

Northlander & Loonasea,

Your company was great also, I wanted to hook up with some bigger fish too, but thats the way it goes. I figured that you didn't have any cell service, but at the time it was the only thing that I could think of doing to get ahold of you, other than driving all the way back out to the lake again.

Take Care Guys, Looking Forward to Meeting up With Ya Again!! grin.gif

Northlander, whats your e-mail? Mine is bluebill7788@hotmail.com. I have school from 8:00 am through 1:00 pm M-F. I don't know what hours I will be working, or if I will be working yet, I haven't heard from any of the places that I applied to. I'll drop you a message when I get that figured out.

Take Care! grin.gif

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400.
