Fishing this past weekend out that way was quite good both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was fast and furious and the entire group got mass numbers. Sunday a tad tougher but still darn good #'s of fishes.

I'd bet you'll slay 'em! We were about 75 yards from one of Arnesons huts and if they put you in that one you are gonna be busy all day!

I was at Arnesens 3/8 - 3/10.

We fished in the same house all 3 days and it was due west off of Gull Rock in 29 ft.

Best LOW trip I have ever had by far.

We brought home limits of walleye, almost limits of sauger, 10 perch; and had a meal one night up there.

There were 5 of us(2 adults and 3 boys that were all 11 years old).

Only 2 over 20 inches, one of which my son got that was 25.5 inches. His biggest walleye to date.

Thursday we got roughly 50 fish, and kept 24 total. Size was small(saugs were 12-13 and wallys were 13+). Nothing over 14 inches except the 25.5.

Friday was a tad slower on numbers, but size went up nicely. We caught 40 to 45 fish and kept 26. Saugs were 14+ on the keepers, and the wallys averaged close to 15 inches. Got one sauger at 17.5 inches.

Saturday we fished 8am to noon. Very slow except for the first 30 minutes basically. We got wallys to fill limits for home, and came up 2 shy on limits for sauger for home. We iced about 15 fish total.

Best colors were glow red, and even glow pink.

Secondary choice on color is tough. Friday we caught fish on the entire spectrum of colors. If we didnt have any bites for a period of time, just one person had to change to something completely different, and on several occasions it would catch fish within minutes of hitting the bottom.

Red, pink, gold, silver, green, chartreuse, black, blue....

Change often. If you think you are changing too often, increase the frequency of changing even more. Seriously, it worked.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      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.
    • delcecchi
      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
