We were up for 4 days and did pretty well. Lindy's and leeches did pretty well, but jigs and shiners outproduced everything else. Fished in 30-40 feet most of the time, but the boat operator (who was me) was gapping out for a while and we ended up on top of Duckfoot in about 17-20 FOW and hammered 10 walleyes in about an hour near dusk. Duckfoot was the most productive (graphed fish almost constantly), the Blueberries were all pretty slow, Shelland was decent, and Greywater was alright. I would try Duckfoot first and make your way east.

Sounds like you had a better weekend than us. We were fishing west of the Brule. All of our fish came from 30 to 45 feet. Thursday and Friday were slow. Saturday my dad and I managed 7 keepers plus quite a few smaller fish. My dad picked up an 18.5 inch smallmouth Saturday also. Most of our fish came on crawlers although I did pretty well on a jig and minnow too. I'm heading back up this weekend with my G/F so hopefully thing pick up. Maybe I'll have to head further east.

Nice meeting you also Bill. Thanks for all the info and the tips on lures. I hammered them with the lindy with sharpruese the first day and had to hand a few out laugh.gif. We had a blast and we will be up again. The Rainy lake trip(s) are always my favorite.

      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

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      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.

      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.
