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!!

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?

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      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.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you
    • delcecchi
      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.
