Was just working on some ice fishing stuff on my website tonight. Kinda reminded me about Medicine for some reason. I can't wait to start yanking gills and crappies out there this winter! What a fun little lake! Can't say that I've ever had a "bad" day out there on the ice.

Aquajoe.. I wont fish medicine regularly until sometime this fall.. I'm too busy chasing catfish, and the sturgeon season is coming real quick. I will be spending a couple weeks fishing Lake Erie and the Allegheny river very soon too. I'll be hitting medicine more late next month... when I'm not sturgeon fishing.

Fishing cats and sturgeon all the time.. everything else just looks like... bait!

Hey Med,

I was out for the first time in months last night and the fish were NOT snappin'! But it was as pretty an evening as you could ask for and I was just glad to be out again.

Hey Med and Lee,

I went out tonight and it was real nice. Not too much traffic! Fish were kind of hanging tight, cool.gif probably because of the storm last night. Caught a few nice ones. Looking forward to fall!!

Ole

Hey Lee! I've been meaning to get a hold of you for some time, but it's been an insanely busy summer for me. I started classes last week so I'll have more time to get out now. grin.gif

I figured you might be a touch busy. I've been runnin' hard myself - fixing up a cabin north of Bemidji. I actually left my boat up there for a month or so, but started jonesing for good old Medicine and brought it back down!

My first time on the lake today and who do I meet, MedicineMan. Nice to chat with you a little. We did get a few bass today and one smaller pike in an unconventional way grin.gif, trolling cranks in 10-14 feet of water. The sunfish were pretty aggressive today, I think we pulled in 5 on cranks too.

Just wondering, but i know med has some nice white craps, but i've never gotten into 'em. I've caught tons of blacks, especially in the winter, just never had luck w/ the whites, and i hear they average about 2" bigger. Any tips, especially once the ice sets in?

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!

      I'm debating whether to bring my small fishing boat on a camping trip with the inlaws last weekend iinJuly. Is it worth it fishing this time of year. We are staying in the Whipolt bay. If I do fish it may be after dark when kids are sleeping. Would be open to catching both walleyes and/or panfish. Send me advice please as I have fished the lake only once.

      Cliff, Why do you use a 1/2 crawler and not a whole one? I usually use a whole crawler on my Lindy. I caught this nice 27" tonight on a red #2 with a green soft bead and a big fat whole crawler.
