I plan on staying at Gooseberry next weekend and I'm not going to be able to stop and see the WALL and get the lastest info from the guys at Marine General.Could you send me a email on the latest info on some areas that might be worth a try. I'm willing to go as far as the Temperance.

Thankyou

I havent fished by Gooseberry. All my shorecasting has been at Lester River, Brighton Beach, a few spots between Lester and French and Stoney Point. Brighton Beach has been the best.

Im sorry but I just dont have any recent info up Gooseberry way. Maybe Quickstrike has been? What do ya say Kent?

I have been tossing Orange Crocks with a silver tape on the front and a gold back and thats caught all my fish. I have tried several other colors but thats been the hot one.

Good luck to you. Oh dont be afraid to use a slinky rig with a crawler floating or some floating spawn sacks. Maybe a Ross bobber with a sinking spawn sack or looper bug and waxies under it as well.

If you post here maybe we can touch base as you come threw Dulth and I can show you what we use and even set ya up with some slinkies etc.

You can always e-mail me at the below .

I'm in muskie mode. You know where. You're right though, 2 jobs leaves precious little time for a guy to get out on the water. Priorities.............I guess.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
