We have returned... one word..AWESOME!

fishing was great, lots of 17's-18's and a few "big" ones.

the accomadations are really nice and the staff helpfull

we caught fish just about everywhere we went, but you got to watch for rocks since the water is low, just a couple of slight damage to skags, but not bad.

I was up there the first week of August. Just like you alot of 17-20 inch fish.Some big northerns also. That logging road can be a real treat, only one flat going in and none coming out luckily. We rough it, we camp, but have talked more about staying at the lodge as we are all getting older.

We're planning the last week of September. Was wondering if it's worthwhile to bring a canoe? Also, is it as dry as N. Minnesota, we were hoping to do some shore lunches. Hoping to get my daughter into a 15lb Northern, or are we talking a lot of 5-10 pounders? Any info (or advice) would be appreciated.

Thanks

Its a big lake,,I'm not a fan of canoe's. we were mainley fishing up the lake a ways. make sure you bring everything you may need as there is no place to get anything unless you want to go back down the road from !@#@!#. the reef rihgt up form the resort was a good spot when the wind died down. there was guys fishing the shore right across from the resort and were doing pretty good, just ask around, you will get all the info you want.

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
