Don't know if you are staying right on Pimusche or nearby, but the water level is down on Pimusche making the public access pretty difficult to get out with your boat. So if you head out of the public, you need to make sure that the motor is up and there will be a couple of spots you will have to get your feet wet and do some pushing. Once out, concentrate along the shorelines (cabbage isn't out there like it normally is), bobber fishing using a jig tipped with a leech and you will find the panfish, also have had a few pike take the bait while bobber fishing the shorelines. Again, take it easy getting out on the water and at some of the humps. Good luck and let us know how you did!

Well caught alot of little northerns on little joe rigs with a minnow along the west shore and had a few big hits but nothing really to speak of. No walleyes at all and had about 15 crappies jigging just south of scenic hi way lodge on the other side of the cove with a jig and minnow. It was pretty windy which made it difficult. Look out up in the northern part of that lake. we hit a tree stump full bore and gave us a scare. The lake is down about 18 inches and we saw alot of stumps to the north. Night fishing produced only a few crappies. Drank alot of beer tho and had a good time. I will return next year. A frined of mine who goes to BSU says he has had good luck on bemidji with muskies. Has 15 on the year

Hey Trout, thanks for the report. With the water levels down we haven't been on Pimusche in about three weeks..it's pretty tough at the landing, and there are a few spots out there where you really have to watch it..but we've had good luck out there on the panfish.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.
