Yeah. Don't sweat the 40 inch mark Brian. With the slew of 40 inch plus pike I've hauled out of Cass over the years... I've found that milestone to be overated. grin.gif

What were you doing when you caught that fatty? Trolling or casting? Just tell me it wasn't caught on a bulldawg!

I was out with Brian on Sunday, doing some trolling. He got a 46"er and I got a 38".

Hey MuskyMark, how did you guys do the rest of your trip? I took a drive to the Big lake access after I got off work that day and saw your rig there. I guess I was right with the directions grin.gif!

Good deal Rob. Nice to see you guys are still pulling them in up there.

The rest of the trip was a bust musky-wise. Outside of Cass, we hit Big (thanks for the directions), Plantan., and Little Wolf. Saw fish on all lakes but Big. Even resorted to fishing with small suckers for a while. Had a couple pickups on those, but couldn't stick the fish. One was a low 30s fish. Thought I was pulling the sucker back through the weeds... then I look down and see this little guy gnawing on the sucker! As soon as he saw the boat, he bolted.

Ended up the week catching a few big bass and some pike. Guess the little streak of weather we were in was just too good. Sunny, high skies and temps in the 40 - 60 degree range? Right at turnover time? Not good! The last night we were out on the water (Saturday), the temps started coming up at dark. By the time we got off the lake and were driving in to Bemidji (9 pm), it was 77 degrees! Weird.

All in all... still a good trip... as always. Good luck the rest of this year. Keep us posted.

Mark

      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!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      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.
