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

      Thank you very much Outy22!

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      What's the flow like on the Rum, Moose?

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.
