West end Report Oct 1-7

4 posts in this topic

Was up over the last week staying at Spring Bay Resort. Caught between 40-50 Walleyes. They were setting up in the deeper holes taking minnows on jigs. Size of minnows didn't seem to matter. Also seemed to do better in the morning than in the evening.

I also picked up a 38 inch northern on a white bucktail.

Thanks to Doug and Lisa for a great time.

How deep was deep? What size, color, and type of jig (Bucktail or plastic)? Any specific locations that you were fishing? Thanks for any info!

Most fish were caught in around 24-26 feet near deeper water. I was using a normal chartruese jig. Not sure if color mattered since I didn't try any other colors. We did well off of Hibbing point. My father in law and I caught a dozen there on Thursday morning in about 45 minutes. Then they shut off like someone flipped a switch.

Walter,

It was great to have you and Leslie and Sophie again. I always enjoy fishing with you. It was a good week, as the fish were on pretty good. I think it is just going to be a matter of you leaving all your walleye gear at home, and only bring the muskie tackle. But then I would just wind up giving you one of my walleye rods and we would be stuck again fishing eyes', and letting the big girls alone. Thanks again ---- look forward to fishing again with you next June and October.

Doug

      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.

      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.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
