nice size sunfish in 15 fow about 9 feet down with small jig and a piece of leech. Slibobbers work good try the edge of any weedline you mark consistent suspended fish then anchor you will catch plenty of pannies and im sure a few bass in the process. Walleye fishing is tough unless you get out after dark, even then spotty to say the least

Out on Minnewaska today and ouch...any hints or help on the fall minnewaska bite would be well appreciated! Lots of bass, along with a couple crappies and big sunnies. Do walleyes exist in this lake?

I was out on Sunday fishing for smallies. I was in 2.5 to 3 feet on the edge of the weed rock transition and caught 3 walleyes on a rattle trap. This was in the middle of the day. Also caught a ton of bass and a 6 and 7 pound pike. I wasn't fishing for walleyes but I would say that in the evening if you go really shallow and cast some shallow running cranks ripping them through the isolated weed clumps you should find some walleyes.

      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..

      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.
