East End Report

8 posts in this topic

Fished the east end this past weekend. Mostly for muskie. Pretty slow. One boat in our group landed a nice 42" Thursday. Only had a couple of follows the rest of the weekend between 3 boats. One hook up on Sunday that was lost as soon as it hit. Fished mostly reefs and islands.

Did get a little eye fishing in. Trolling cranks for suspended fish was mildly productive.

How is everyone else doing? Going to giver' another shot this weekend. Good luck and see ya on the water.

I am planning on hitting the lake on Friday before the rain moves through. I am hoping that will get the muskies a little more fired up than it sounds like they have been.

The muskie fishing was slow Friday, the walley fishing was ok.

We were out on a mid lake hump that topped out at about 8 ft fishing for walleyes. We looked behind the boat and there was a muskie swiming at the surface about three feet behind the boat.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
