1 day fishing on the south

2 posts in this topic

Going to be fishing out of Izaty's with the family on Thursday and Friday from the launches. Question I have is for Saturday. Will be fishing the afternoon and evening out of own boat and have never been on the lake before. Planning on trying for musky in the afternoon and walleye in the evening. Anybody have any good suggestions on lure to use and techniques for the one day jaunt. As I said we will be leaving from the southern part of the lake and am not familiar with the lake at all so would like to stay on the southern end if there are any good areas to try. From looking at a map I see sloppy joes is on the southern end. Is this an area to try? Thanks for any help I can get.

For walleyes try rocks right before dark and after dark, slip bobber in 8' to 12'

Muskies- All southern bays hold fish, Cove, Isle, Wahkon.. Famous Mille Lacs lures.. Topwater, bulldawgs and the new famous Cowgirl... All good stuff...

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
