Monday 10/02 Report - West Side

7 posts in this topic

I had the pleasure of spending a night of trolling with fellow Pro Staffers Mark Stanley and Joel Nelson. We fished the west side Monday night/Tuesday morning, while not exactly setting the world on fire, we did manage some nice slot fish, a couple of larger fish and 2 personal bests for Joel Nelson. I will let him tell you about them smile.gif

Water temp was 55 degrees, fish were caught on the inside of the weedline, trolling speed was 1.6 to 1.87 mph and color preference was clown. HJ14's. 99% of our fish came off of rocks, with only one coming out of the weeds.

Funny thing is Joel was asking if we ever caught muskies trolling at night on Mille Lacs. We told him it happened now and again and less than 5 minutes later he tagged the muskie in the photo.

Has anyone heard anything as far as a day bite going, and where?? I would like to get up sometime next week and fish the afternoon and then stay out late and crank.

Please stop posing pictures of those rough fish! grin.gif I keep telling ya, running #14 is nothing but trouble. Sure they catch lots of walleyes, but they catch too many rough fish too!

      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..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.
